Im using a 52" Toro Z Master 149 on the igger stuff, and a 48" Bobcat walkbehind on the smaller. I dont have a stripping kit cause the only ones I saw were strips of rubber......seems usless.

other than the trash and/or leaves in the second pic, the lack of edging along the driveway in the third pic, all the bare spots in the forth pic, and the weeds in the sidewalk cracks in the last one, it looks average.

Edging along blacktopped driveways is not necesarily a good idea, there is seldom a clean edge to be had.


If you're just starting out I'd say you have a good start.
Two things to be succesful, Quality and customer service...........
Oh ya, did I mention customer service and quality?

Not Bad Man. The grass to me looks a little too short, what hight were you using when you cut it? I usually use a 3" height. Good Though! Keep it up! Try not doing criss crossed lines though, I found it looks better just cutting it one way.

Oh really? Why shouldn't he criss cross? He is doing the right thing by criss crossing. One way gets old FAST. Just my .02

If He Wants To Criss Cross, Thats Fine, But From An Eye Standpoint Sometimes Straight Just Looks Better. But I Guess I Can See Your Oppinion. No One Up Here Seems Criss Cross. Its Just My Oppinion

Looks ok to me. Those rubber flap type stripers work very well, much better than just a plane jane mower deck.

Thats why the cut doesnt look good to me. I tried then and threw them away with in a week. Gators simply dont produce a nice clean carpet like cut. They make lawns look shaggy like the ones in your pics.
