How does this mower perform on hilly ground? I have 1/3 acre lot with some of it at a 20 degree slope.

Assuming you’re referring to the Self Propelled mower, many people have commented that it does quite well on steeper slopes due to it being Rear Wheel Drive. Many SP mowers are Front Wheel Drive and those mower’s weight transfers away from the drive wheels going uphill, leading to a lack of traction. RWD doesn’t have that problem.

I don’t own the SP mower, I’m just repeating what other owners have said.

works great! we have everything from gentle rolls to some really steep terrain, it's a champ. I love the SP for going up the hills so kept it on by habit, then realized I didn't really need to for going down. lol.

Works great for me, almost too well.  I was surprised that the plastic wheels work as well as they do, my feet slip before they do.
