Stopped to see a good friend of mine tonight and he showed me a model of a Slope Tractor Mower that he recently acquired. So I thought I would shared it here. He also owns 3 of the full size ones.

The model is awesome in detail The wheels are bolted on with machine screws as well as everything else on the model. Gas Cap screws off, all linkages work, I think the only thing he didn't do was sharpen the blades!! The Next to last picture is a full size one.

Here is a short description of the Slope Tractor..

The Slope Tractor Designed for hillside mowing. Manufactured in 1969 in Harper, KS.
Cost was $7,000 in 69. 172 Cubic Inch Ford Industrial Engine, About 200 produced, Mowers were available to 7.5 Ft.

60 Degree Inclination Left and Right, Holds 34 Gallons of fuel.
3 Toys were built by one of the design engineers.
4 of these Full size mowers are known to exist in United States.
