Looks very nice Mac. But I didn't know you worked. I just thought somehow you figured out a way to get the money rolling in without having to leave your desk. :cool:

Looks like a long day's work...

Nice...and I thought you said you couldn't see all that well anymore. Or was it something else you mentioned that didn't work as well anymore...lol

Didn't know you had a Grasshopper. Is it a 48"? I would have guessed it was the work of a small walkbehind. I guess the size of the area fools the eye.

Stripes look great... but it looks like your center blade is slightly bent, or your spindle bearing are getting wore.

nice and straight but i agree with the middle looking kinda off. Or you were on a velke

No its a 61" and the blades are new just put them on before mowing and I doubt its a spindle since its a new mower with only 51 hrs in it.

those passes barely look 40" wide. i think what you're seeing is the overlap from the other direction still showing. looks great none the less though :)

A 61"??? How much are you overlapping there? No, it's gotta be eye trickory from the picture...

As far as the center streak others have mentioned, you could be getting that from straddling previous tire tracks. But....... I encourage you grab a stick ruler and head for a level spot. Measure the ground to tip distance, front and back, side to side on all three blades. Then check the deck top to tip distance, front and back, side to side on all three blades. Do this while the deck still looks good.

I had one do like like that and I'm telling you it sure looks like the same symptomatic 'tail cutting' streak to me.

Sweating like a pig? Sitting on a mower in October.. in Ohio? C'mon Mac? :rolleyes:

Is that your house? How many times did you run in and get a cold one? :drinkup:
