 finishing mower needed?

Need an opinion or 2. Building on 10 acres...but intend to keep actual lawn at less than an acre. I actually have a small Cub Cadet lawn tractor. When I get my compact tractor...not sure if I should include the added expense of a finishing mower to replace to lawn tractor....or focus on other implements. My concern is that I may have some steep grade landscaping around the house that my lawn tractor may/may not handle. The 4wd shouldn't have a problem. Any thoughts?Also, may have a short 45 degree grade coming off of one side of the house...that I hope to landscape with ground covering. If I actually had lawn there...how stable should I expect a finishing mower to hand steep inclines...in any direction?

 finishing mower needed?

I use a landpride 6' airtunnel behind my JD 855 on slopes up to 27 degrees. If your tractor can CRAWL it and the knot in your belly stands it a mower will cut like it's on flat ground as long as you go slow to control tractor. the weight of the mower will tend to pull the rear of the tractor down hill. with a belly mower the tractor will stay straight with the slopes. If at all possible mow up and down slopes to prevent rollover. Most folks won't run a slope more than 15 to 20 degrees, This is a good rule of thumb. I hope this helps,just becareful.
