Issues with Wright Stander 48 RH

Hello all!
I have been using wright standers for a number of years, so you would think I know them like the back of my hand. I purchased a 48" rapid height version this year and have trouble tearing the turf when turning at times. I can turn as slow as possible at times and still seem to have the issue. I have never had such a problem like this before. Again, I have used standers for 5-6 years with no issue to speak of, until I got this model. Any tips or experiences or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and be safe out there!

I got the same model and it does tear turf its because of the smaller tires I think. sometimes its only on the crappy lawns but sometimes its on the nice thick lawns also. Sometimes the best way to avoid. Sometimes the best way to avoid it is turn a little bit at a time back up and go forward back up go forward so both wheels are always going the same way if you know what I mean.
But yeah I see your point it still does it no matter what on some lawns/terrians I wish they could put the real nice wide tires like on the standard models
