Some conditions I think I should list so you could help me get started:
1) It's a 20 degree hill on 1/2 acre backyard.
2) Cost less than $2k???
3) Reliability vs Maintenance
Thank you in advance.
Before purchasing I suggest doing some research of mower and especially engine and transmission manufacturers to determine if a particular lawn tractor is advisable for your 20 degree slope.
I see in the Craftsman link " Terrain Type:
Flat " is mentioned or possibly suggested. Which ever, it's rather vague. Who ever wrote that manual may have not taken Plain Geometry or failed the course because an incline of 45° can be flat.
