Is it a tank or residential?

Must be residential... otherwise it would already have a stock stripe kit...

But it looks just fine and plenty straight... especially considering the terrain and the turf quality. Was that by chance cut with the 50" Cub?

Nah... I'm not so much like the others.

I say if it cuts well, suits your needs and suits your budget... who am I to say anything? I even still use... GASP... lawn tractors... along with the commercial stuff.

Sometimes the stuff can hold up well, IF it is serviced relgiously with overkill, and treated with care in the field. To me, the benefit of commercial stuff is hopefully less repairs and hopefully a longer life... making them hopefully CHEAPER to own and use in the long run.

You should talk to the local Cub dealer and see if the suspension riser kit for the tanks will fit your machine's bolt pattern. If so, that will really help out. All the rigid frame mowers ride pretty rough at speed, so stepping up to a commercial machine will only help a little if you go with a unit with taller tires, and that's not saying a lot.

Zim-Fertilizer doesnt cure everything, Like he said, it needs to be dethatched and overseeded etc..
