I do all my laundry. I know when the machine gets to jumping, and what causes it. It is as TN said- the clothes are piled heavily to one side throwing the basket out of balance. It never, ever jumps around with water in it because the agitation speed is so low.

I remember 20 or 25 years ago when the monster trucks were getting bigger and heavier then all the suddenly they used their heads and figured out well gee a Formula one car will stomp a Nascar in handling. gee I wonder why most of the reason is WEIGHT! so then they started ligtning the monster trucks up and then they handled the rough terrain much better and made much better times.Again, not a valid comarison. You are talking about two completely different things regarding energy and the transfer of it. A mower doesn't jump high in the air, nor weigh what the truck does, and the mower isn't depending on high tech suspension sytems to soften the impacts like the monster truck needs to have. High tech suspension, lighter weight truck= longer lasting truck when jumping over stuff. It has nothing to do with the smoothness of the ride.

Just like my quad and my 2 wheeler. My 2 wheelers will tear up the quad in rough terrain why well most of it is weight but 2 wheels compared to 4 helps as well in making it more agile. The quad beats the crap out of you compared to the 2 wheeler.Because the quad has at least two wheels banging off the ground compared to only one on the dirt bike

15 MPH is a good clip to hit stuff with no real suspension.

And I will Gaurantee you can make my 200 pound lighter 72 handle a good bit better over practically all terrain over the new Super because it is 200 pounds lighter, no dought the new mower is better but 200 pounds is 200 pounds. Simply not correct bro. A light mower in comparison to the mass of Earth, Mmmmm, which do you think will move away from the other, and at a faster clip? With no suspension involved to make things complicated- the answer is lighter- always.
As for the fluid in the tires, they don't just fill the bottom end. It is usually to at least 90%, but not more because there needs to be some air space for proper inflation, for both ride quality, and to make the tire flex better for traction in the fieldd. That way the rim is never exposed to air when using calcium chloride for weight, which would cause rust to form on the rim. Most are now using beet juice (Rim Guard) because it doesn't cause corrocsion, and costs less, but weighs more. Still, they fill the tire up to near the top. No weight tranfer or out of balance conditions that way, and tires filled to near full give far less road lope (hop) when transporting between fields.
