    I Have A Super Z Xr-7 With The Flex Forks And A Bac-vac. What Should My Front And Rear Tire Pressure Be? My Dealer Says 7-10lbs But It Seems Way To Low, Any Help Would Be Appreciated.

    We do not recommend Flex Forks with the Bac-Vac.
    Tire pressures should be between 8-12 PSI depending on your conditions.
    Of course with a hopper full of grass your pressures should be a bit higher in the rear.
    I would start them higher and adjust them to what works best for you.

    The more weight you put on the back the more it will cause the flex forks to bob up and down like a fishing cork, it would be like putting a ton of sand in a half ton pickup and riding across your yard and expecting it to not go up and down. The flex forks are designed to have a certain amount of down pressure on the front of the mower so they can perform correctly, when you change that balance it voids the design they were engineered for.
