 Tractor tipping?

You'll probably all laugh at this but I've never driven a tractor before. I recently purchased some property but am somewhat concerned about cutting on a few of the steeper hills. I'm considering purchasing a NH 4WD CT33D but wonder about the overall width (JD is wider). How stable (or tippy) is the 4wd CT33D when going across a hill? How do you tell the limitations of a tractor without having it tip over on you?

Thanks,

 Tractor tipping?

You wrote CT33D and I assume you meant TC33D. I have a TC29D, which is the same as the TC33D but a few less HP. Same frame, size, and weight. I have a tilt meter on my tractor. I mow sideways on a 20 degree hill all the time and have been sideways on a 25 degree hill with no problems. I have a 30 degree hill that I do not try to mow sideways on, I go straight up and down. If I had weight on the tires (either fluid or wheel weights), I might try it, but have never tried it.

The thing that fools people sometimes is that on a riding lawn mower, you're not up very high, so a side slope doesn't feel too bad. When you get up on a CUT, it feels like a lot more. Whatever you do, make sure you have the ROPS up and your seat belt on! The thing you have to watch out for is if you go too fast and hit a bump or start to slide sideways and then hit a stump or rock, then it will be much more likely to flip over.
