Do you mean if the pedal is all the way down yesi it is plus diff lock and it is in 4 wheel drive and some places it will not back up the hill thinking about putting chains on all 4 wheels when mowing this hill

It won't back up because 3 or 4 tires are spinning? :eek: I've been up and down some pretty wild hills and they run out of pedal in reverse before they spin unless the grass is wet. You could always hang 4 suitcase weights on the front, then turn around and face up the hill; if it won't climb it that way, there's not many things that will. Chains would be a pain and tear stuff up, IMO.

I readjusted my pedal on both of my tractor this one is faster on the steep hill for it doesn't have all the weigh that the other one has. The other one has back tires filled. 12 gal each tire and the cab which weights 350lb but they both good a great job

I have seen a mowing crew mow a hill about like that on a clover leaf going up and down with two zero turns. No way would I do it with those.

They weren't backing up it, they were going forward up and down and turning around at the top of the hill. I pulled over and watched them a bit to see if they were going to roll one down the hill.

You're going to kill that tractor. Did you ever think about building tiers of planting beds across the slope? Unless you need to get up it, then you can always cut a ramp into the slope, say half way up in each direction. Just a thought, I know I would be itching to attack it with my backhoe.
