We've had rain this week and I've had trouble with tire skids when I turn my Scag. How to stop this?
Are you doing a 3pt or "K" turn?? If your sliding on a side hill, try angleing up the hill a little, and dont try to turn when going down hill if possible. I back down some hills and go straight up the hill when they are too wet....
Also check tire pressure, may be running to high...
You have to pick your machine up and rotate it on its front caster wheels in order to avoid turf tear. Or, or, a big orrrr, you can go in circles. Well not circles, but you know, none straight lines, swing it wide, come back in, swing it wide again, come back in, so on and so forth. I adopted the circle technique, my back was getting a little sore.
you could also try doing a double boarder, making wider turns within that boarder.
k turn and like trenchblade said, make a wider border, make the wide turn, then re-cut the border when finished.
I agree, slow down, it will stop it from happening every time. I can make the tires skid doing a "K" turn but it's only because I'm going to fast while trying to whip it around. The cure, slow down.
