Any mower can rut depending on conditions...even 21s. In the realm of 36" mowers is where more issues take place since they get heavy real fast when compared to a walk behind. Yes, a stander is generally lighter than a ZTR, but not by much in the smaller sizes. Then, don't forget to add the operator's weight to the total.

Looking at overall weight as a function of stock tire size will give one an idea of how rut-prone a particular mower might be depending on soil conditions on a given day.
