In the last few weeks I have noticed some minor ruts in a couple of properties. I have a 36" Gravely WB belt drive. I was wondering if any of you who have used both the gear drive and hydro noticed any difference between the two concerning ruts. My mower is one of the lighter ones out there with the smaller deck and I'm thinking that the added weight of a hydro and bigger deck would defeat my purpose of trying to eliminate ruts. I try to alternate mowing patterns about every cut but it only takes one wet cutting to get the ruts in there and they are noticeable for a long time. Thanks for any help!
