    Hey guys I have a JD 317 and I was wondering what can I do so when I work in a yard its not marking it up to bad. I dont like all the ruts or how it tears up the grass, any suggestions or should I accept it? Thanks

    Well if it's too soggy you're going to have ruts. Wet ground with a machine like a SSL will mean ruts. As far as tearing up turf watch the turns. I know this sounds obvious but it is where most problems. Make 3-point turns rather than spining the machine around. Just make broad turns and it makes a big difference.
