The stripes look abit uneven as if the deck is uneven. The cut quality is nice tho. It looks like the left side is lower the the right. No offense ment at all.

i like the strips...... i dont think that is an uneven deck though it looks more like some overlap on the mowing width. ie. he said he mowed with a 44" so the first strip is 44" and then the next one after tuning around could only be 36" or so due to deck over lap. just my .02

yea that pic i posted is about a month and a half old. So the reason those lines are in there are because the guy b4 me used a 21'' mower. But now the lines are solid. I have more striping pics. i have about 5 lawns of my pics. I put 16-16-16 on that lawn in the pic so it would green up a lil more so my strips would become darker. Next cut this thursday im going to try a diamond pattern. That should take 3 times as long though. I also learned that not over lapping so much my hustler will strip darker. Ex. i used to mow in the last tire mark now i put the last tire mark next to the one im mowing.

Do you use the Hustler stripe kit on your mower?

I've got a 18/44 too and had all sorts of problems with dandilions a few months back. I've got the hi-lifts installed now, hopefully they'll do a better job next year.

Yes i use the 18hp/ 44inch fastrak with the vac blower bagger and a strip kit. I also use double blades. I finally mastered how to strip darker. I put the out side caster right next to the last wheel mark. This makes a darker and larger strip in the lawn. I will have lots of pics by next week. Since i discovered how to do this i am now striping every lawn in a checkerboard pattern. thanks
