    haha, And i did said that nicely, no harm intended. But honestly, navigator controls and Ztr controls are completely different machines. I may be crazy but I think you guys have the air pressure in the tires backwards. Less pressure will create more traction than high pressure. People who rock crawl or mud their vehicles always air down the tires when they get on the trail for better traction. It makes sense from a Physics stand point, so try the opposite.

    Fess,
    The widest tire available for the Navigator is 10.5”. If you happen to have the optional 18X8.5-10 Tires installed, you will get a 2” gain in footprint width by going back to the 10.5” tires.

    Another thing to consider is changing your mowing patterns each time. When you begin mowing, please consider everything that has been suggested previously. If you are still having issues, please send your contact information to exmarkpr@exmark.com and we will have an engineer get in contact with you.
