 Got Tractor - now need even more advice

Just got my TC29D today - SUUUUH-WEEEET. 7 hours of mowing has been reduced to @3 hours of fun. However a couple of questions- I have some long grades (perhaps 20 degrees i am guessing) and the tractor seems to bog down a little going up them. I am surprised because my 25hp garden tractor seems to have no problem with them. I am using 2nd gear in hydro. 1st seems really really really slow even on level ground and it also wants to bog down some. Does any of this sound like a problem?- I figured out that i can use the hydraulic lowering stop to position the mower deck (belly) so that the decks guide wheels are about 1/2" off the ground and this helps a lot. This means the tractor is carrying around the deck. Is this OK to do? think i recall someone saying this was preferred but i see nothing in the manual about it.Thanks...........

I don't know your machine, but my experience with a JD755 (20 hp, HST) is that the mower uses a lot of hp. I would just use a low range, because if you loose too much engine speed and therefore mower blade speed you will be going back over it anyway. As far as the guide wheels, they should not be rolling/dragging along the ground but, in fact, as you have them just above. Take a look at these wheels - they are not made for continuous ground contact/rolling. If there is a high point on the ground, the wheel(s) will engage and push the deck up to minimize scalping.
