What are they saying here? In looking at the way they say to stripe i am confused. I mow one diagonal one week. Then the following week i mow 90 degrees to my previous angle. They are saying that on the same day mowing i should mow opposite 90 degrees every other strip. So i would have to mow one diagonal then after i am done with that i would have to go and GUESS at the next angle and try to go on just every other stripe ONE WAY. NOT BACK. Is that right?

:)LOL, I can see why your confused after reading that. I guess you can stripe anyway you want, but I will stick to the way I do it. The way you are doing it now sounds right to me. I like the plaid striping :) Makes me LOL :D

Don't laugh at the simplicity that's what i,m using right now,used a husky my first year this spring i steped up to the simplicity,got 300 hundred hours on it now still runs and cuts like new. my dealers sells them and walkers he says the simplicity has the closest cut to the walker you can get.i'm going to step up to the walker next spring still working solo and it's getting hard to keep up, got to get the speed of a z turn but don't want to sacrafice quility.

Hey Eric,
Do you think their mower put down those stripes?
Or did they have you come over with your DC like Sears did for their photo ad?

If you look at the picture, the mower is half way on a stripe going each way. Why would they do that and mess up that nice mowing job. :)

Bobby does that extra money on that tractor pay for what its worth? How is the cut nice?
