    I know that Turf Masters come with most mowers, but I want to know which tire does the least turf damage on your ZTR during turns, etc?.....

    Turf Masters are the best. You just dont know what your doing. Look up zero turn 3 point turn

    I don't think he is saying he can't make a turn without tearing up the grass, he is just asking a question. If you don't wanna help don't say anything.

    Anyway, the turf masters, as you know, are the most common. They will provide good traction and at the same time won't tear up the turf too bad. The turf savers are easier on the turf in most cases, but from my experience do not have as much traction.

    HA, HA! Trust me I know how to turn, I've had a ZTR for over 10 years. I was just asking for opinions :hammerhead:

    Every major commercial zero turn manufacturer uses turf master tires. When you have a 1,300 pound machine on grass it doesnt matter what kind of tire you have.
