Here are some stripes I got after I installed the striping kit I bought from fga. Only got to do 2 yards so far with all this rain; as it clears up I'll post more. These postage size yards are REAL nice to mow quick and you make more $$$payup payup :clapping: .

Nice pics. I agree with you about the small yards. Most around here are pretty small.

LOL I was just going to ask if it was a b.i.t.c.h to mow with that sticking so far back.

Its actually not that bad; since I bag and its the same lenght as the bag I'm already used to it.

sorry to say, but imo its just plain worthless to put striping kits on 21" mowers, i have three, one good and two pieces of crap, and they all "stripe" like that if not better. Im going to build one for my scag

You don't have a self propelled mower? I couldn't imagine pushing a mower around all day

if you need a self propelled push mower, you need to hire someone to cut your lawns! They weigh what 20-25 lbs.

Push isn't that bad; any way a hydro with a pro-slide is coming next year.:clapping: :waving: :clapping:

Do you actually use a 21'' mower? or do you make your employees use it? I don't know about you, but i would be exhausted pushing around a 21'' mower as often as i do. I use the 21'' mower on about 28 accounts and the rest with the 36''

I'm only 16. So I don't have any employees yet except my 14yr old brother. My dad and me share the site; most posts are made by him.

It is 2006, do they even make a mower that is not self propelled nowadays? There is no way that I would push a mower around that is not self propelled. The stripes look good if thats what you are going after but I too think that most good 21" mowers stripe fine stock

YES, and since its not a commercail I don't want to have the propelled since its very likely that it would brake. Any way it only cost me $250 and like I said the 36" Hydro is coming next year. A push mower isn't hard you guys just aren't in shape!;) :laugh: I wrestle, play football & baseball so pushing a little 21" mower is NOTHING. I was really going for if you guys liked the stripes; so since I got a YES then great.:clapping:

they looked pretty nice.. how heavy is the striper?

I used to use a 21" on all my accounts a few years back, but now I don't even want to get off my dixie chopper and use the 36" WB .. lol... It must be really heavy though bagging, with the striper and the bagger..

The striper is about 5lb.s, but it rolls NOT drags so it helps. Its really not all that bad but I know that the 36" will cut my time in 1/2.:clapping: :clapping:

I'm running solo right now. But I have pushed a 21 for many years and still do on 2 accounts. I can't stand running a self propelled.

I only buy self-propelled 21" mowers. Less work for me the better. I am going to purchase a John Deere 36" walk-behind next year.

Lay 'em down Jarod:)
with that roller, i noticed the more often its used on a house the better the stripes will look, and ofcourse the quality of lawn.. weedy, vs lush thick.

i only use it on special occasions though.

I agree. All my 21"s are self propelled.

self-propelled is just something else that may break, in my opinion.
