Has anyone had any problems or complaints from customers with their ZTR matting down the grass (or packing the ground down)?

In taller grass our Ferris 3000 does it. It won't suck up what the front casters push over but in shorter grass this isn't a problem.

The heavier the machine the more matting we are seeing in our area. And when you use real big equipment on small properties it is harder to cross cut and make new paths each time. I see it in St Augustine and Bermuda on commericial properties. Fortunately on those properties we strip the grass down in Oct and plant winter rye so the grass gets to start over in the spring.
