This is a crappy field at our church. Lots of weeds but sure does stripe up well. Check out the pics. Done with a 48" Lesco Hydr w/b.

Nice Stripe! How high was that cut? Looks to be at least a 4" cut. Am I close?

almost looks 3d... It really does take practice, I'm slowly getting better and I agree, waves and curves look better especially if it helps you go faster due to terrain.

that's tough, almost looks like 2 acres, could even be 4 or 6, hard to tell... a 48", those things rule don't they? lol I love those machines.

looks pretty darn good, did you photoedit it at all?

You just can't beat the cut and stripe of the black Lesco 'Command Cut' decks.

Looks great! Wavy stripes look just as if not better than straight lines IF they are consistent as yours are! How large is the property and how long did it take you???

I have been thinking about trying a Lesco WB. Sounds like you run Lesco. I have always run Bobcat. I have demo' ed other brands though and have on occassion purchased others too, only to later sell them because I didn't like them as well as Bobcat. Thus far have found the Bobcat to stripe the best of the one that I have tried. Can you give me your opinion of Bobcat vs Lesco? I have never tried Lesco and can't say that I have ever seen any in use in my area. I figure that they must be a good machine though.

I have a BobCat 36" and the Lesco 48"

they are equal to me. both very good machines. But think about service. Find which is best for you.

Let's see the kit my friend! I was in the process of building one, well just step 1, got some semi truck flaps to use. Would like to see what you have.

BUT I think I still have some adjusting to do to get the cut just right. This is what a double cut looks like on a deep lush green lawn.
