up or down slopes, never
across the face of slopes.
On a riding mower to determine if a slope is safe to mow: (1) disengage the blade(s), (2) put the unit in reverse, and (3) try to back straight up the
slope. If you can back up the slope, it is generally safe to mow. However, if you do not feel safe, or you are not completely sure, use this guide to
determine the slope angle.
WARNING: To avoid possible serious injury, do not mow a slope that is greater than 15 degrees. If the riding mower is used with a
pull-behind or rear-mounted attachment, do not operate the unit on a slope that is greater than 10 degrees.
