Are you asking a question or making a statement?

I rented a DEERE quik trac for a day which is a close copy of a Super Surfer and all I can say is Dane Scags must have been really pissed when he lost the rights to build his original Surfer to Wright!

I use the super surfers and love them. You do need to slow down on them when turning though otherwise you do slide the wheels around and tear the grass. You might check the belt tension. I do know that the front tires sometimes lay the grass down, but I usually slow down to fix that.

no a question does mowing with the deck lower help stand the grass up

That is the point they tear the grass like a big ZTR but are not as productive as the best ones and are almost as expensive. The thing that made the original surfer so good was that is was compact,light,manuverable and only tore the turf a touch more than a WB but then they redesigned it and ruined it in my opinion. And it gets stuck easy and is hard to get unstuck , a real piece of crap. Put it on the list of the Mr. hainey special of 35 cents on the $!
