I like the zig zag one. It amazes me everythime a homeowner asks how we get the stripes.

Customers dont get pissed that you do that to the properties? Looks fun. Can you explain how zig zagging across a lawn saves time? If you are going to do that why not just do "Hot laps" around the parimeter into the center?

it doesnt look as good as if you neatly striped it, and some people are very particular about their yard, and like it a certain way. plus the hot laps leaves a line when you get the tractor out of the center where you finish.

You could always start in the center and work out! Just Kidding!

Yes there are! You want to go at a slight angle as you see in my picture. If you face the hill looking at it at 12:00 you want to go at an angle of either 11:00 or 1:00 to be the safest. If you choose 11:00 you have to start on the right and work your lines to the left. Vice versa on the 1:00 pattern. You also need to learn how to make a stripe going backwards. So you go up the hill turn left a bit, then back down the hill (this is for the 11:00 pattern). Go very slow! One slip and you and the machine will slide down the hill.You may also put some weight on the front of the mower too! Don't even think about doing it if it's any bit wet or damp. I really would not suggest this to anyone. It is HIGHLY dangerous. You really have to know the limits of the machine. The hill you see in the picture I can't even get my 48 walk behind on it with out slipping. Hope I wasn't to confusing. Please be careful!! It can save a ton of time. The last guy weed whacked it!! HA
