    On the disscusion af turf ripping, we seem to be having a problem with some of out properties around the trees. We have had a lot of rain this year and the ground is soft. So do some of you just cut wide around the trees and trim, because we are getting sick of creating tracks around the trees.

    Yes our guys and myself had this problem this year, I think the rain had alot to do with it plus we rechecked our tire pressure that alone helped

    try slowing down in your turns, if you have an out front zrt try cutting straight into the trees for a while
