    You are running bar tires right? I'd see if you can make or add a weight bracket and try 300 lbs right on thr rear.

    Actually the dealer put Carlisle knobby ATV style tires on. They work well, when I slid, the tires ripped the grass right out of the ground, making a nasty stripe, lol.

    I will call that number and see what the deal is.

    The guy I talked to said they do sell them but ted would have to give you a call back. I even asked twice, once at the begining of the phone call, one at the end. Ted would be the man to ask I guess.

    What tires exactly? Are the AT101? If you loose traction with those tires the area is too steep and you should probably only mow up hill in that area.
    What psi in the tires? Lower is better for up/down traction.

    There be the problem! Those are better than standard tires but they arent as good at the AT101. I'd ask if he could swap them now, before you get to many hours on them.
