Tips for using 36" belt drive

So this will be my first year with my Toro 36" belt drive. I've used it on my lawn but not anyone else's yet. I went around and picked up my leaves with it and the bagger on it the other day....and i managed to put some pretty good ruts when i turned. Yes the ground was a little damp but i didn't think it was that bad. I never had any problem last year when i cut my grass with at the end of the season. But the ground was rock hard.

So any advise on using a 36" belt on a small yard where i will have to turn sharp? I didn't buy as hydro because i don't have the money for one. Just would like some overall tips for using one. Maybe suggestions of how i should use it. I have a sulky on it as well which makes for a lot faster cutting.

My next mower purchase will be probably a 42" hydro maybe. But that will not be for a while.
