    It seems as if even when the grass is the slightest wet , when I turn my wright stander it leaves a round dirt circle on the grass. Is there any way I can avoid this?

    Hey, they don't call um O turns for nothing. That mark is the mark of a O turn mower. LOL

    Ever heard of a 3 point turn? They teach this in drivers ed. It's so you can turn a automobile around in a tight place. When you apply this to a zero turn mower on grass, you'll notice the down to dirt circles disappear.

    Do you have the turf master or turf saver tires?

    Three point turn or keep both wheels moving by one going forward and one in reverse.

    8-10 psi in tires helps as well
