    I'm a newby who recently bought a Grasshopper 721. I'm a home owner with a 3 acre yard and I got sick and tired of repairing a POS MTD tractor!!!! What is the opinion about ag-type chevron tread tires as opposed to turf tread? Do these tend to dig more divots? I only ask because I will be mowing a few other lawns (to pay for the Grasshopper). Thanks guys!!!!!:D

    I've owned 2 Grasshoppers, both with the tires you're talking about. I too was leary about them digging divots when I first got them but I found they actually dug fewer divots than the regular tires. The reason, I believe, is because they give much better traction.

    We run grasshoppers and have both types of tires, you will learn what you can and cannot do with each type.

    Thanks guys, I figured you all had been here before! Should I spring the $$$ through my Grasshopper dealer to get their optional low pressure tires (and wheels) or are appropriately sized atv bar tread tires ok????:confused:
