    Thinking about putting on some smooth Turf tracks on my Takeuchi Tl130. The C-Tracks I have on it now are great tracks, but they rip up a lawn or dirt areas fast, even with slight turns. Also, if the ground is wet, they get mud in between the tracks which falls out making a mess if I get out on asphalt etc. Anyone use United Skid tracks, Turf model?

    Sorry, no experience. Looks like it would be better. Hopefully this "bump" helps.

    I’d love to have turf tracks on my 97-2. Ours eats up a lawn no matter how easy you go. Was working next to a cat that had more of a turf design and
    He did very little damage. At the very least we have about 1000 hrs to go before we do any track swaps lol

    I wonder if anyone has tried out of the McLaren turf tracks as well. They definitely don't have as much traction as the United.
