    what kind of tires do u guys use on your z turns ?
    i use the turf tires they came with, the heavier tractors have to be babied when turning or they will leave a mark

    i have seen brickman using very aggresive treads on there dixie choppers but have to wonder how they do on softer terain

    Then if they are using Dixie's that is the tire that comes stock on them as they use an "agri" style tire on their mowers, so it isn't something Brickman changed them to.

    Brickman runs Dixies? I 've only seen them run exmark and scag. If they change anything, they put cheaper tires on like tractor tires to replace the smooth fronts. I've never seen them opt to put more expensive stuff on a machine. Not the way the machines get beat on.
