    Why am i leaving nasty tire tracks on some of my comm. props when turning into my next pass? (60in ztr) I guess i didnt notice it much on my resi. becuase of driveways, sidewalks, etc. I see some properties where it looks like the mower was lifted in the air and turned around lol, no turn marks!:confused:

    If you are talking about the holes you make with the tires while you are turning, try this. When you get to the end of your pass come to a stop pull back on both sticks and turn while in reverse. Try to slow you turning speed down a little as well. Hope this helps.

    by the sounds of it your either turning too quick, or not keeping the inside tire turning, or both.

    make sure the inside tire doesnt stay still, i do 3 point turns, even then, make sure its always moving
