    i have an 05 777 and have a problem with tearing grass when i turn! this is the only one that i have had that does this , and ive had several jds, has any one else had this happen ? i know that all zs will tear grass but ive never had this problem before. i wonder if the linkage needs some adjustment???? any solutions?

    Don't turn so sharp. This model may have wider, stickier tires that what you're used to. Do the three point turn around. I had a problem with that when I went to a ZTR. I just had to slow down.

    We've had the same thing happen with the 777 even when being really careful and slow. I believe it is a combo of the weight of over 1300 pounds and the very big and VERY Wide tires on the Z.
