Am curious as to if I can reduce the turning radius of my 1054. I know that one of Cub's selling points is it's tight turning radius, but mine turns so tight it leaves marks in the ground. I have never had a tractor tear into the ground while turning. Bottom line is it turns too sharp! I even try feathering the wheel while turning. Not good. I am at the point now that I just stop, back up, and go my merry way. Any ideas?

I think the simple solution is to learn your machine. Its the same way with zero turn mowers. You can tear the ground up if you aren't careful. I participate in selling zero turns, and that's the first thing a new owner does. You can tell where he went around his trees.
You'll get the hang of it. Don't cut it down, there might be (and will be) a time you will need that tight turn!

Check the toe in toe out, sometimes if there is too much toe in the tires dig in more.
