I use to have an old Gravely "walk behind" tractor with a small "one-lung" engine that would just about climb walls and pull a train. Fast? No, but it had REAL climbing characteristics.
While top speed is the prime concern of many here , I wonder about torque and how fast it will climb what level of incline before it starts loosing speed.
I live in a moderately hilly area(Greenville, SC) and the little film Mountain had of the pre-3500 climbing a hill is what sold me
Anyone care to comment on their real world experience?
