If you're double cutting, go in a different direction on both cuts, you'll get better results for sure. I can tell you double cut on the same stripes.

This lawn challenged the 21" Honda...but I think it did pretty good. Another overgrown "emergency" come cut today lawn


Mulched this thick overgrown lot... didn't turn out too bad. I didn't have my trailer with me today, just the Honda, a trimmer, and a blower. About 10 minutes after taking this photo it started to rain.... the Honda is terrible in the rain. But if it's not wet this little mower can mulch anything and leave a decent cut on the first pass.

Love all the pics! Nice work.

On a few of these big lots I have seen you using your 21, any particular reason why?

I used to have a 4x10...Then I got a 6x12.... You wouldn't think it's that big of a difference, but was I wrong. I also realized that trying to fit every piece of equipment on the trailer, rather then taking only what you need saves a lot of time. It also looks neater....a simple looking rig looks more professional than one loaded down IMO. Look at my old equipment thread....you will see.... But besides that, Love the stihl's and the stripes! Keep em' coming!

Awesome!!!

I love this thread...

Your set up is great man and anybody taking a look at this thread will easily be able to tell that you have a passion for our type of work.

One of my secret obsessions is trailers and how people set them up... I LOVE checking out different trailers...

Yours is awesome!

Nice stripes by the way... Northeast? Fescue? KBG?

P.S Shindaiwa Rules!!!!
