Its a fairly new LT110 I'm talking about that i cut the back 2 1/2 with, it won't climb the hill any more and when i try to cut along the side of the hill it just spins the outside wheel, so i figured i give the L130 a try. I got it cheep it looks allot more heavy duty than the L110 and if it don't do the job i got a guy who wants to give me $700 for it so i can't loose on this one.

I should start from the reason why i use a new lawn tractor to mow my lawn, A while back i rolled a 1966 sears SS12 on the hill and the tractor ended up on top of me with the deck and engine running, I didn't get cut by the blades but it was real close. So from that point on i will not cut that hill unless I know that if I leave the seat for any reason the engine is going to stop, let me tell you that is not a good feeling having a machine like that on top of you Running!

I can see your reasoning now.....Glad you escaped from that close call safely. I've never rolled a tractor and never want to.

Plowed with the Craftsman GT5000 after I ran the Sears SS12 and blower out of gas. 9" with drifts. Both units worked as expected.
I have decided I do need a little more weight on the back of the Sears. I've got 50# per side + my gravitationally enhanced tookus. Think I will strap another 80 on the 3 pt and see if that does the trick.
