spinning wheels


My lawn tractor has difficulty negotiating the smallest incline, mostly if the grass is damp or new and tender, like this time of year. I get better traction if I lean or sort of bounce on the side in question, but its really annoying. The tires have lots of tread. Its not very old and has no other issues.

What am I supposed to do besides carry a bag of rocks around or mow at break neck speed?

Thanks

What you need, is a Mezi Mucker.

Get the tires loaded or get some wheel weights,or mount a box on the hitch and fill with concrete.

Greg, I have seen some wild stuff over the years but that's a good one.

I saw it on Build it Bigger, for the episode that they are redoing the NYC subway system. Thought that it was cool also.

I guess you could also slightly underinflate the tires... but then you would have to make sure you raise the deck slightly so you don't give your lawn a crew-cut.
