Developed for demanding mowing conditions, the SLOPE-PRO® is a game changing step forward in operator safety and productivity. It features an ultra-low center of gravity for good stability and maneuverability while allowing the mower to cut on side slopes as steep as 50°.
The SLOPE-PRO® slope mower is designed to mow difficult and hazardous locations while minimizing the risks to an operator, the equipment, or the terrain.
The SLOPE-PRO® is designed, manufactured and distributed world-wide by Progressive Turf Equipment Inc.
The SLOPE-PRO® is suitable for hazardous and difficult terrain, including:
• Roads and highway
• Parklands and estates
• Landfill Sites
• Railway embankments
• Power line right-of-ways
• Riparian zones (reservoir and canal embankments)
• Military bases / restricted environments
Mowing hillsides with crevices caused by localized water erosion issues is a particular concern for wheel based slope mowers. Depending upon the width and depth of the crevice, a wheel based slope mower may not be able to cross and complete the job at hand.READ MORE
Many competitive mowers can achieve similar angles as the Slope-Pro, but require additional help to do it. The Slope-Pro achieves all operating angles without the need for turf damaging spikes, or tethers and winches that require constant adjustment by the operator.
The Slope-Pro® mower deck contains two counter rotating blades and provides a productive 52″ wide cut per pass. Maintenance free blade spindles reduces operating cost and provides ownership peace of mind.
The SLOPE-PRO has several key design advantages that is important in a remote controlled mower. The cutting deck is positioned between the tracks, not ahead of the mower like other models. The mid-mount position of the cutting deck will more closely follow changing ground contours as it rides with the position of the tracks. Two 9” wide and 48” long tracks provide excellent traction and stability while reducing ground pressure to under 4.5psi.

12 volt Electrical system with vibration resistant battery
Closed loop, hydrostatic drive track system, incorporating fail safe brakes and a hydraulic oil cooler
Track Drive and Mower Deck
Protection from branches and debris above and below, an EXCLUSIVE 'on-board' jacking system, and sized to fit a standard landscape trailer for easy transportability
Must Have Features
Ability to go over the Toughest Terrain
Attempting to do so may result in the mower getting stuck, or result in a roll-over that can cause both equipment damage and the possibly contaminating the adjacent ground or a near-by waterway. A track based mower offers several advantages including lower ground pressure thanks to the area covered by the track; and the stability that the added ground contact longer track length provides. These factors give the track based SLOPE-PRO® its productivity advantage and its ability to cross most crevices with ease that competitive wheel based slope mowers cannot.
The remote controlled SLOPE-PRO® operates without the need for spike-equipped tracks. This is an important consideration as spikes can damage the turf and any hard surface (pavement sidewalks) that must be crossed between the trailer and the worksite. Featuring an ultra-low centre of gravity its stability, maneuverability, and the ability to cut equally as well in reverse allows the mower to cut continuously on side slopes as steep as 50°.
Built for the operator in mind
The SLOPE-PRO® is capable of operating on side slopes up to 50 degrees. The engine is equipped with a low Oil Pressure shut down system for protection and on-board diagnostics for peace of mind. Enclosed, spring-applied, fail-safe brakes are standard equipment and apply automatically if the engine is shut down. Only two grease fittings, easily accessed engine oil dipstick, hydraulic tank level sight glass and remote fluid drains making routine serving convenient
Built-in jacking system:
An EXCLUSIVE on-board jacking system makes tensioning of the SLOPE-PRO® tracks easy as it uses the adjustable height of cut feature to lift the tracks off the surface. The 'legs and feet' of the jacking system are secured in holders under the lockable hood so they are always available.
A track system design similar to heavier equipment:
Dual flanged rollers, a familiar grease cylinder style slack adjuster, and recoil spring, all similar to what is used in most mini-excavators, make track tension adjustment simple and fast to do using a handheld grease gun. The easier it is, the more likely proper track tension will be maintained, and as a result, track life is enhanced.
The elevated drive motor design minimizes the build-up and packing of mud and debris around the hoses and drive motors. The high drive motor position reduces the risk of hydraulic hose snags and leaks, an important consideration in sensitive areas.
