Today I ran the 36" for the first time at my full time job. Yes, I work for an LCO and yes, he knows I have my own business, and no he doesn't have a problem with it, in fact he wants to help me get experience.

Anyway, I know the stripes aren't perfect, I'd only been running the 36" for a few hours.

In the second and third pics, another employee ran the 21" right through it.

Pics snapped with phone, sorry about crappy quality

Dang, that 21" screwed up a fairly good looking stripe. I realize that the picture quality is not that good, but it looks like both mowers are set way too low, especially the 21".

The 36" is set about right, I think, the 21" is set too low. The 21" is a total POS, deck kinda sets itself sometimes. I don't set the decks, I just run the machines. Usually I'm on the landscape crew, but with the rain, we needed to get this 80 something unit townhouse HOA done today.

lol why the hell would he run the 21 right through there? Doesn't make sense to me. You'll get better with the stripes with the more time you get on the machine.

I don't know man, really got me jacked. I mean, I know the stripes weren't perfect, but come on. I was proud of those.
