I have some steep hills which I've been able to mow for years with an old Gravely with tire chains. My better half decided that she'd like a nice lawn (i.e., not chewed up with chains) so I found a nice 4WD rider. It adjusts cut of heigth with the hydraulic lift in front and a roller on the rear. The roller rolls down with en electric motor.
It looks to be the best fit for me available locally, just want to make sure that the roller can be raised when not mowing. Plus, it's red, Daniel!! -- Steve

I have a 2wd Prestige, the decks are the same for both. The hydraulic lift raises and lowers the entire deck of the ground. When you lower the the deck by the hydraulic handle next to the steering wheel, you then set your height of cut with the electric switch, which raises and lowers the rear rollers on the deck to your desired cutting lenth. The hydraulic lift is also used to raise and lower the snowblowers attachment when you take the mower deck off . It also is used to control a sleeve hitch for tillers and plows. This is the best cutting tractor I've ever used!
Hope this helps.

I bought it to have a small 4WD unit; all the other 4WD's available locally are much larger. My only hesitation in buying this tractor is the bells & whistles = more things to go wrong, but got a number of positive recommendations.
I think that I'm going to enjoy this site and Forum.
