    New ZTR Tires

    So I have 23x105.-12 Carlisle Turf Masters on my ZTR, they work fine and all but on some slopes I have they tend to slip.

    Any recommendations on what to move up to for more traction without tearing up the lawn.


    This is what I have Carlisle Turf Master

    Before I would buy new knobby tires, I would look into this solution.



    I have approx. 1200' of ditch that has about 45 degree incline. I tried mowing it with my Z710A with 54" deck and it made me nervous. Although, I wasn't sliding like you mentioned, but, it didn't go like I would like. I mow this ditch every time I mow the yard, and I do it with a 1999 JD345 with 54" deck and have no problem(s)

    So, I thought it may be better just to widen the wheel track on the ZTR. I found the above (photo) 2" wheel spacers on the internet and installed them. It went very good in mowing the ditch and there wasn't any sliding or anything that made me nervous that the tractor was going to go it's own way. I since have mowed this ditch three times and will continue to do so until there is something that changes my mind.

    So, widen the wheels on your ZTR may be the answer you are seeking instead of paying over $200.00 for new tires.

    BTW: I think the type of grass you mow makes the wheel slide.

    I don't have stability problems with my mower but traction

    As far as traction - have you tried lowering the air pressure to around 5# or so?

    Also - didn’t see what model ZTR you have. Some of the bigger units you can add suitcase weights.

    It's not a green ZTR

    It's a Husq PZT 60.


    Adding weight would make it work, but I would have to add weight to the front also to make it stable.

    I think it's simple traction...

    The Carlisle are the old style HDAP tires like I have on my X540.
    The Kenda are the newest style offered on JD's garden tractors.
    Either should work better than turfs.
