It will try to slide down the hill, at least as much as the connection between the tractor and mower will allow. You can compensate for it by driving slightly above what you are cutting. If it is motor driven I would suggest a 2 cycle engine or a 4 stroke with a great oil pump since oil starvation is common on steep slopes.

You can shift 3rd to 4th on a steep hill but it is not a good idea because you will loose power/speed and could even start to roll backward and stall the engine. 4th gear is designed for level road driving at higher speeds. 3rd is for stepper hills or getting to sufficient speed so to shift to 4th. 2nd gear is for steeper hills and so on.

You run on your toes with your weight forward, go up the hill as fast as you can make yourself go, because hills hurt the same whether you are sprinting or jogging up them, and the faster you go the less time you're on the hill. When going down a hill take long strides and let gravity take you, you can get a good lead on those around you by using hills. It also depends on how steep the hill is, if its not that steep then i wouldn't sprint but if it is steep then sprint it because it doesn't hurt any more then if you jog it. So don't just go out and sprint every little hill you'll get way to tired.
