I wish I had your luck, I'm leaving tire ruts with just the mmm on. I'm at the base of a large hill and two springs semi-drain into my property. The mostly clay soil takes a long time to drain, one area I mow has 1" + standing water well into May/June. Plan on running a couple hundred feet of drainage next spring now that I have the BXpanded tooth bar.Just FYI in my experience I have never had an issue with wheel ballast on my BX or B. Both were filled with Rim Guard. With the weight of these tractors the benefit is good and I never saw an issue with my lawn or property. I have very soft sandy soil in most areas here in WI.
