Yeah, it stripes really well. i think the 60" decks do a better job though.

Hey I'm new to the site I just bought a new toro 3000 comercial with a striping kit and was wondering if there was any special way to get the best stripes.

Going a little slower and trying to keep your lines straight and even is the best thing to do. I cut all my lawns in 3 patterns, usually 2 angles and a long straight. Then i repeat. Some like to do a different line each time. Best thing to do is get out there and see what works best with you, Good luck!

Nice man my favorite one so far is of your parents house. I wish I could my yards to look like that man lolLook awesome!!!! Keep The pictures coming!!! I see you use a striping kit but do you double cut as well?? And you were taking about how you mow 3 patterns. So you change each time you cut correct?

wish we had different type of grass down here in Houston, Tx St. Augustine is tricky when we get a good yard it looks gorgeous and stays for a long time but then there's just some you can't do anything about it.
Pics look great
