 Right tractor for hillside mowing?

I have a 90 mini farm and have several steep hills to clear and keep mowed. Anyone with some suggestions as to the best tractor for such a job. I know I could use 4x4 and have looked at the New Holland tractors. Please any help.

See my comments to "755 on a hill" today.
Most 4x4 compacts can be set up to run on hillsides.
Important is wide wheel position and weight compensation.
One other point: if it ain't dry, don't bother doing anything -- you will slide regardless of tires, and will churn up turf fast!

The TC40-45 appears to have a good center of gravity, from my testing. I have a 955 and I doubt that it is as stable, but good. It is the larger engine of the 755.
From literature the best is probably the articulated tractors like the power track. The front mount mowers appear good but are not really a tractor.
