I just bought an Exmark turf tracer hp. So far it has worked out wonderfully. The only problem Iam having is every so often, I am tearing the turf with my inside tire as I do a complete turn. There's no doubt that it is something I'm doing, but I need some insight on how to rectify this problem. Thanks for the help.

I am having the same problem Nate. on certain types of grass. Try to keep all the wheels turning during the turn. On most yard you just can't use the turn on a dime feature. I have found out. Maybe someone else know better. I think Homer had some ideas
