View Full Version : ZTR traction on hilly terrain

09-09-2008, 09:35 PM
I'm running a Toro 52" ztr on my property in WVa which is mostly hilly. It does ok if I take it easy. It has OE turf tires. If I went to a more aggressive tire tread would it help traction or just tear up the turf more??
Thanks for any suggestions.:confused:

It would help on the hilly areas, but the other areas would suffer as you would tare the turf easer...........:usflag:

We equipped a JD M655 with Carlisle Turf Tamers a few years ago as our hill climber. It goes through a set of tires every 3-400 hours, It will hold the hills better and it will scuff. It's a trade off
