You link look good but shows to much tire stripe in your deck stripe a roller would help your mower to even the color out on your stripes.

But still looks good for a Kubota I mow a lawn next to one and That guys runs a Kubota doesn't stripe well at all

It will help that, but its due to me mowing so long. The setting is 4 3/4 but I think its more like 4 inches.

Those are decent looking stripes but I'll take the Steiner stripes in a side by side comparison. Alternating your striping orientation weekly is a good idea. Thats my property in the photo and next week I'll probably do concentric circles.

I set my Garmin GPS on the Steiner and after running my first heading which was I believe about 255 magnetic, I do a back azimuth of 75 to make sure I'm parallel. This was my first use with the Steiner so I will hone my navigation skills.
