Mowing across the slope is always dangerous if it's any significant slope because there's a number of ways that the moderate slope gets steeper in a hurry -a really soft spot on the downhill side, uphill tire catches a tree if you get too close, and tries to climb the tree, wet grass, etc.,etc. If any of these happen if you don't stomp the downhill brake and get it around in a hurry, it has a good change of flipping which, in turn, has a good chance of killing you. I have a few slopes on my property that I always have to mow going straight down and it will many times slide down when it loses traction. all you can do then is steer to keep it in a straight line until you get to the bottom.

Get a goat, goats eat everything. Hope you don't mind the smell.

Mentioned the goats and sheep to my wife... I guess were getting some because I helped her put up a pen on the weekend. when I asked what the pen was for I was told it was because I wanted goats and sheep...
