Husqvarna 48 PZT

I own a husqvarna PZT and I'm hoping that someone may be able to help me with the issues that im experiencing. What type of blades work best for sedgehammer?
When I stop at the end of a pass to turnthe wheel spins and tears up the turf. I can prevent this by taking a little extra time when I turn, but there has to be a better solution. I do not have this issues when I use my chopper. Is there a better tire to use?

Have you checked to see if the tires have the correct pressure. Over inflation will cause a lack of traction since the full tread width isn't touching the ground. I've found that 9 or 10 psi all around works best on average. The ride is also much better.

I just bought a 52" Husky and have been experiencing the same problem. Love the mower but this is a problem. Having to be very careful on turns.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will give it a try tomorrow. The mower is very heavy compared to other mowers and im sure that contributes to some of the issue. I see different opinions about blades and was hoping someone with a husky had a suggestion for blades. I see the G6 , i wonder if they work.

Lol. You cutting 1/4-1+ acres with a 30" Timemaster? Most have no use for something that small and problematic. Better to adjust to a real machine.
