Hello everyone, it's been a while.
I am looking to replace the rear tires on my JD 757 zero. I have been running turff tires, but I would like to find something more aggressive to hold me on the the steep banks better. I use a 24 x12 turff tire now and I am starting to slide more. We mow more commercial than residential lawns.
Any suggestions????
Thanks,
Charlie

lower the tire pressure to gain traction

I normally run mine (high) 18-21 psi
but they are suppose to be run at 10-12 psi
to get more traction on a hill I've gone to 8 psi
I would check the psi rating on your tires and just play with it a bit

Thanks to everyone. I do run a low psi when I mow the banks, but the tires need replacing so I was looking for some suggestions on what may be out there to purchase for replacement.
Thanks
