New Exmark Mower

Well guys, over the christmas break i picked up a new mower. I got a 52" Exmark Pioneer E series. The reason i went with this choice is because 1. its weight for all of the yards I do 2. I picked up a car dealership and needed the extra mowing capacity 3. I have always wanted a ztr for ease of use. The reason i went with Exmark is because of OVERWHELMING Exmark dealer support in my area. I had not heard much about this mower because it is a fairly new modelbut when i talked to the dealer he told me it has quickly become there best selling ztr in the last few months because of its weight and size. I have to say I love it. i wish i had the extra money to get the S series for the deck and engine but the dealer actually talked me out of it saying there wasnt that much difference other than pumps and blade clutch. I was also going to get a 48" but was able to negotiate the 52" for the same price as the 48. Ill get some more pics up later.

Yeah i would have loved to have gotten the S but I'm in college right now and could justify spend an additional almost 2k for it just because I wanted it. For that I may as well bought a lazer haha the only thing really uneasy about is not having the canister air filter but I can deal with cleaning it more often.

I did a leaf cleanup in a fescue lawn about a week ago and I was very impressed with the cut. However I would like the stripes to be a bit more vibrant so ill probably fab up a striping kit. U guys have any advice on what kind of homemade kit works best (chains, rubber strip, etc)
