Question about hill-climbing/hauling vehicles. We're considering a homestead that has an additional 3-4 acre pasture on top of a hill behind the house. The path up to this area is around a hundred yards long with about a 40 degree incline with a U bend in it and about 10-12 feet wide. Seems too steep to run a tractor up to it on a daily basis w/o 4 wheel drive and lots of front weights. I will need to transport feed, perhaps occasional water, equipment, whatever up to this area, and back down again. I have been thinking about using a JD 4x6 gator or similar type of vehicle - low center of gravity, good length and weight. Can anyone give me some feedback on how these would handle the incline? Or any other thoughts you might have.
