When you do a zero turn in a lawn one wheel will have to be stopped and the other moving. That one wheel stopped will creat the divit. Thats why with any mower you would have to make a 3pt turn or turn a little wider as to avoid stopping the inside wheel.

easiets way I heard to describe it is basically make a 'K' turn.... When you get close to the end of your pass let off one of the hydros a little and start its turn until it gets to a 90*, go into reverse and turn yourself so youre facing back and then go straight forward...

gotta make wider turns, to prevent this. get a proslide and it wont make any divots. and yes i have had a proslide on a belt drive and it worked fine.
