they remind me of the tires that are on my 4-wheeler, they get very good traction.

nice pics.

I have that same tire on one of my Go-Karts. GREAT traction, but they can damage the turf pretty good :D

Sure would like too find a set of those for my TORO walk behind, now that Im the only one using the mowers now. I have some pretty good size hills that I could use a little more traction on.

luckylawnboy, how many passes did you do on the first pic and the 2nd pic?

I noticed those tires where on the new Dixies in my December issue of Turf Magazine, The control levers look like they are a little thicher also. Looks like a awesome machine to me, Seems like the new tire tread would have very good traction and more kinder to the turf than the tractor style.. But Eric seemed to have no problems with the tractor type tread.......Marks Mowing Service

Blew all the leaves into a row. ran back and forth till they were mulched up mabye 10 passes over that same row. I then opened up my chute and spread them out.

Those are not a new tire for dc. The latest tire they put on them is the 26 12 12 carlisle turf pro.

Luckylawn in that first picture it looks like that deck has some major damage done to the discharge side. Are you getting a ne deck?

No I just plan to bend the deck back into shape. I do not plan to spend the cash for a new deck. That is what happens when other people run your equipment.

There are several tread patterns of ATV tires that get excellent traction on turf with minimal damage. But on a zero turn it's a whole different ballgame. If you begin to spin you are going to dig and leave behind some damage for sure! But the general idea is not to spin in the first place. I think overall, compaired to turf tires it probably evens out as you will break traction with the turf type tires more easily and do damage as well.

I guess it's like most everything else...a trade off...

I haven't recieved my December issue of Turf Magazine yet. I'll have to take a peek at Dixie's new tire choice when it arrives.

they aren't puting the turf pro on every machine just certain ones.

Who makes those? I was looking on CR Tire for them to see how much they were, but couldn't find them. I still love the TurfSaver by Carlisle, though

The tire in this pic???

I just wanted to say that I watched the video of the Mow'n Machine on the Woods web-site. One of the mowers in the video was equipped with ATV KNOBBY type tires. Anyone else seen this?

That looks like a Turf Saver.
