Lets see some big area striping. Here is one of mine. 25 acres total done in 3 hours 15 min. with 2 260 gravelys, not in cluding trimming and blowing 1 hour more. will stripe the other way next year. (pic 2)

Wow thats a big area. Nice stripes. How wide is the mower deck? do you go the same direction every time?
What is that corporation of co. that owns the property?

All my properties could fit in that whole area i think. None of mine are even as acre.

That would be the place to try drawing designs in the grass. . . hehe some people don't take too kindly to that, though. It looks great.

BTW how do you line up before you start the first pass? I've heard of using rods on the front of the mower, a distant object, GPS, etc. Just curious.

Somebody told me to mow "I love you" for my girlfriend. She'd get a kick out of that.

What a way to ask your girlfriend to marry you...:waving:

That was my little 34. Great for small yards though. Thanks for sharing but would like to see a few more.

Firekilr2, are you having any trouble with the hex shaped bolts that hold the belt covers on your 260Z? I have had 2 of them snap off in the deck where they thread in. Really my only complaint about my Gravely.

The 08 models have a separate nut on the bottom.

Sweet lawns guys!
