I use my TO30 to mow my river lot and the soil is always a little damp. The Ag tires mark up the ground quite a bit but not enough to convince me to buy turf tires and wheels. I wondered about slitting a piece of conveyor belting and strapping it on the tires much like snow chains. I don't need much traction since the yard is flat. Any inexpensive commercial products out there? Anyone done anything like this before?

Cut the side walls off a pair of damaged turf tyres that are an appropriate size to fit over the tread , and use the remaining tread belt. Should be much cheaper [ free] and have the added advantage of having some grip on the grass , unlike conveyor belt .
I use the tread from textile belted tyres for the safety screen of my slasher [ brush hog ] .Free from any tyre service and much more durable than the expensive rubber belting you are supposed to use .

Good thought - I considered a "gator" (trucker slang for a thrown tractor trailer tread) but they aren"t long enough without stitching pieces together. I will look for used-up turf tires or even Ag tires that I can turn inside out after stripping off the side walls. Thanks!

Clever idea , If you used ag tyres inside out as you mentioned the lugs would lock into each other and hold the belt in position .
