Well, thought I'd take some pictures, as I'd like to get a good one to use as a background for an upcoming ad I'm working on. All comments welcome, I'll learn somthing from them.

Those look very good. Do you use anything bigger then a 21? If so you can put this in an add.

Thanks for the offer John,
this year (just being our first full year) we've been using only 21" - ers they've more than paid for themselves, and have helped us save enough to move up to a 36" for next year.

I appreciate your offer on using your picture, as those are great stripes, but no offense, I just like to take pride in my own work, and want to use some of our actual work is all.

Look forward to making some bigger stripes next year though!

Nice pics guys. Twins, what kind of 36'' are you looking into getting next year?

I was debating on the Quick 36, as the price for a single hydro seems appealing, but regardless looking to spend around that amount $2000.

Twins, a couple questions. Are you using any type of striping kit on your 21's?

Also, if you didn't already know this trick, take your pictures with the sun behind you. This is the best angle that will show the most contrast in your stripes.

Your stripes didn't seem to have much contrast, so they don't really show well, at least not in those photos.

I'm thinking it was just the lighting or the angle the photo was taken that's causing the lack of contrast in the stripes. Just a guess.

Thats the one i would go with. The Quick 36 seems like a nice unit. I did look at all the mowers in that field and the quick came in on top everytime.

Thanks for all the replys everyone. I do agree, the sun light could have been better, in the pictures it was about to rain, so the sun wasn't even shining much. They would look (and do look) a lot nicer on a sunny day. I'll try again this weel.
