I know I was kinda blown away by how bad it has been so far on gas but someone else posted they started getting better around 75 hours so maybe it will get better. It really is a sweet mower and I love the cut.

It gets better but not alot, my first choice for engines will be Kohler EFIs for now on. The fuel savings will hopefully make up for a shorter lifespan.

It does bother Me actually lol, I have been trying to figure out how to modify it for a while now.

Couple new pics.

This side of the lawn was done with the walk behind and pro slide.

Thanks man, i have never mowed with a walker but i drove one around a parking lot one time and it felt pretty weird for me, i cant imagine mowing down hills or on slopes with one.

Second that. My JD laid down some nice stripes, but the striping kit really makes them pop. Its a decent investment but well worth it for the appearance. Work looks great!!

Thanks man, The striping kit was only like $250 bucks or something like that so i figure its worth the chance to see if it stripes better.
