    Is using say a 1200lb Super Z much harder on a lawn than maybe a 1000lb mini-z?

    If the tires have a 20% bigger foot print they would be the same? It is all about pressure not force.

    My 52" with 23x10:50x12's is more prone to rutting than my 60" with 24x12x12's. I have concidered putting the wider tires on the smaller mower but I would loose some trimming ability.
