rolling backward with a hydro-static transmission

I have a slope behind my garage that I can drive up, but the JD 240 will slide the tires on the way back down. The easiest way to cut it is to allow the mower to roll back down to the bottom and then drive back up and repeat until done. Will this cause any damage to the transmission?

Thank you everyone. This was the first time trying to cut it this way and half way thru i wondered if I might be causing damage to the machine.

Add some wheel weights,it can turn bad quick if it decides to tun a little sideways while sliding.

Most hyro drive lawn tractors can be driven straight up some fairly steep hills and backed down without slipping. Turn one around and try to drive down a hill forwards and 99 you will go for a ride.
Slipping while driving down a slope will not damage the transmission as long as the controls are in forward at any speed. Transmission damage can occur if you are sliding forward with the controls in reverse. It puts a lot of stress on gears should it come to a sudden stop from suddenly gaining traction.

If engine is still running you will not damage the trans. Just don't roll down hill without engine running.
