    Just got to use the new Wright Stander today. I bought the 36 fixed deck. Every lawn that I cut had deep tire tracks, not ruts tire tracks. The cut is great and there are no other problems. I havent checked the air pressure I figured the dealer has it set up correctly. Is this common with the standers ? Is there anything I can do to fix this. None of my other mowers do this, Please give me your thoughts !!! :confused:

    it may have something to do with the weight distribution and the fact that you are also on the mower as well. How big are the tires?

    The tires are stock, larger than the tires on the 32. This is why I bought the 36 because of the bigger tires thinking that this wouldnt be an issue.

    I have a 36in fixed deck stander and I have only encountered tracks when the ground was very wet? Was the ground wet when you mowed?

    Check to see that your dealer set the tire pressures correctly....The psi should be in your owners manual......They come over inflated from the factory.

    wouldn't make that much of a difference. You would notice over inflated tires more if they were spinning real easy.

    I would guess the tires are over inflated. I know they had the pressure up to 25psi on my tank when I bought it to make sure the tires seal.

    Buy a blade height checker and make sure both blades are level all the way around the blade circle. Now is the time to resolve QOC issues, not after you have 200 hrs on that machine.
