    Anyone else experience this before? Have two accounts next to each other on the lake. Starting to wear grooves in the embankment, all st aug, using 2011 60 inch exmark. Push mowing the bank not an option, any thoughts? Thanks.

    Wonder if you could fill the groves in with sand to compensate.

    If you're not varying your mowing pattern you'll get ruts in no time. I change patterns each service, most properties I can get 4 different patterns pretty easy. Sometimes you can't. If I can't change directions I mow my first pass like normal then on the next pass cut only half a deck this way I'm driving between last weeks tracks.

    Yep, same here, problem is the low pass on water. The rear left tire is taking all the weight and its showing, I half cut the next pas as well and it helps, going to have to just have the guys string trim the first 3 feet, starting my first pass higher.
