    I recently purchase a new Exmark Lazer Z advantage series 52" ultracut deck. The front tires held air for about 2 weeks before one just went flat. I put air in it and it has been fine until yesterday. I took it off my trailer and then noticed it was flat again. This was the first time I had used it since last Saturday. I ended up using "old faithfull" (36 WB) on the yard I was at. I went to get air between jobs and it was flat before I got to the next yard, CURSES! Used the 36 again. Man, does it stink cutting with a 36 WB while I'm looking at a Lazer with 55 hrs on it on my trailer with a flat tire. For some reason this is one of the only models still using pnuematic tires - what's up with that.

    55 hours on it maybe you have a bent rim.

    Get some "Slime" and be done with it.

    I was going to buy semi-pnuematic tires but they are a little steep. I shouldn't have a bent rim, I've only used this on residential lawns and have not hit anything with it. Unless it was bent from day one. But wouldn't i see it wobble?

    Put tubes AND slime in all front tires!!! No more probs. Some smaller rear tires can benefit as well, i.e. stander tires :angry:

    take it to a tire shop and have them foam-fill it. or just order some no-flats from j-thomas...

    Fix the tires and you will be happy. For me the airless tire ripped and destroyed the turf when you turned around or backed up. Plus the ride was harsh. Get on with the fix and get using the mower. You will be amazed at the productivity. Have fun

    Thorns or nails?

    That's about all that will flatten a caster tire.

    Soap up the tire, find the leak and plug it.

    I don't think that Exmark factory slimes the AS Lazers like they do on all their other Lazers.

    Well get the tire fixed. :dizzy:
    I put Green Slime in my tires. Haven't had a flat in 3 years.
