    Has anybody ever noticed or have had this problem with their ZTR's? I run 4 Kubota ZD's 3 of which are the new 326S models with 60 inch decks and the other is the old ZD 21 model. Now I just bought a new 326 and the rear tires are grabbing on hills perfectly and if I run one of the other ones on the same next week it wont hardly hold on the hills at all. I was wondering is there something out on the market to get the grip back for tires without having to replace them. The other 326's only have about 200 hrs on them I would hate to have to replace every 200 hrs or so. Any help would be appreciated thanks

    Beyond the obvious things like tire pressure and tread depth I don't know what to look for.

    My Ferris scalps and crabs on slopes if the tire pressure is'nt just right.

    slow the mower down. they will grip just fine.

    if the hill is wet that week they wont grip.
