    we just bought a new metro 36" belt-drive and need help on turning. if we do a zero turn than we tear up the grass. well it's not actually a true zero turn. what is some good advice on turning? we are having trouble with it. some good techniques would help. thanks

    If I am walking behind my metro I will simply squeeze the inside tire to the neutral position and give it a little tug backwards while in the turn. If I am on the sulky, I make an extra pass at the end to give me enough room to go out more then make an easier turn.

    Never let the inside wheel come to a complete stop. make a wider turn or pull the inside back.
