    I have a zmaster 350 w/bagger,I definitely have problems with spinning tires & or no traction. I also tend to slow down on turns but still manage to tear turf. Dealer stated I was using sticks in wrong direction.I have yet to master a zero turn because of possibility of tearing of turf.

    I also have a z-100 and mine tear up the turf extremly easy. I can't seem to figure out what is making it do that.

    Lots of info on this subject if you do a 'search'. Summation would probably be 'don't do zero turns on turf' use instead a three point turn', do it slowly and if at all possible use a solid surface for turning (driveway or sidewalk).
