Im using a 52" Ferris Hydro with no striping kit. Just nice sharp blades and a double cut brings out the stripes just as well as a roller.

Hey if i mowed my lawn the same exact way every week it would look just the same. I change it up every other week to try and get the diamond pattern. Your lawn looks great but doing the same lines over and over gets boring to me.

Hamsey,
Were you having a nervous breakdown when mowing that lawn. You got some bright wobblers in that lawn. JK, If those were a little bit straighter they would be great. Good job

Looks real good! Some people tell me they don't use stripe kits and their mower does an amazing job. My exmark cuts fantastic, but can't get it to stripe. Thought about getting a striping kit. Any reports from the exmark guys? Is there any difference between mower brand kits VS. aftermarket?

CTMower,

I'm working on getting them straighter. I use a JD 325 rider and once it hits the incline it naturally starts to turn into the slope. If I went out and put a string line down the neighbors would really start to wonder (as if their not already).:D Will post another pic when I get it right.

John....stripes look fantastic. Can't compete without a ZTR and a striping kit. I took a bunch of pics today but left the digi in the truck. I'll get them up soon enough.
