Well here are a few pictures of my stuff for this year. I dont have time to wash the mowers very often so everything is dirty.

That is a really nice simple, low overhead, setup. I sometimes wish I hadnt blown too much money on equipment.

A few stripes. The first ones were made with the walkbehind and the second ones were made by a laser that I borrowed. I know that they arent that great but I think that they are decent. Comments welcome.

I paid 2200 for the lesco and catcher. I bought it form a guy who bought it to start a business and then never did. It had less then an hour on it.

remember w/ a ztr look at an object and go to it and u'll make a straight line and than just keep it straight.

If your not running high lift blades on your Lesco, you should. There's a big difference on striping.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Daniel, I can make straight lines with the z if I want to but I was in a rush in both of those pics so my work got a little sloppy. It is the back of my parents house in the second stripes pic so it does not really matter.

Gm, I do run highlifts but they need to be sharpened. I need to build a stripe kit for it but so far I have not had the time.

I would have jumped on that deal. I bought my lesco for the reason that most of my properties have gates and tight areas.

Yeah here is a link to some pics of it the day I brought it home. I has been a great little saw. It is the perfect size for pruning and taking down small trees. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=213406

put a proslide on the lesco and you wont need a stripe kit. other than that looks good.

I would but my properties are either to small or to hilly. I only have one wide open lawn. Plus I like walking. If I pick up a few more wide open lawns then trust me my first purchase next year will be a proslide.

The echo has been great so far. It has tons of power and is not very heavy. As far as the speed feed goes, I think it is great. It saves me a ton of time over hnd winding the bump heads.

Only 5 this year. I started with 6 but lost one. I am only 15 and still in school so I think that I do pretty well. Btw I do alot of cleanups and renovations.

Good going man. You seem very grounded for a 15 year old. You should do well in life if you keep your head on your shoulders.
