What type of mower?

I also reccomend a Scag walk-behind. I have a 36" belt drive with a 15hp Kohler. I also recomend a 2 wheeled velkye. As far as cut goes.... I think that it cuts better than anything else that I have seen.

How good is it mowing backwards??? It's just something else that needs to be maintained. Also, it costs money, and for what??? Pretty soon it will a standard, which will just jack up the price of a mower..........Just thinking............
As far as striping lawns go, you are correct in the theory that the More things you have on your mower, the more of a chance there is for something to break.
BUT, your customers will love it.
I added a striping kit to my mower and although it made a difference, it was not as extreme of a difference as I though it would be. I didn't think my customers would even notice. But out of the five lawns I did the first day after adding the attachment, I had two customers ask me about the the nicer stripes.
In your mind, a striper may not make a difference, but I bet your customers will notice it. In the end, so will you.
