Long wheel base, short wheel base, it really makes no difference, on a property such as this you slow down to a point where you can ride the highs and lows like a boat going up and over a swell.

There is honestly a very simple fix for this problem, when too rough, slow down. I would take bets there is absolutely nothing wrong with the mower.

I have about 1/2 acre with the same problem, except probably a little worse, and I have to slow down to the point of crawling through the ruts, I mean virtually stopping all together, and then easing through each one individually.
