    NICE work fellas!!

    I see you got the hang of that machine REAL quick!

    Not to jack your thread... but here's one I did yesterday w/ the new beasts...


    I am in love w/ walkers... they just make me smile every time I unload the trailer.

    Keep it up! :waving:

    Did you guys ever consider going to split tail wheels to clean up those stripes?
    We have this setup on a john deere machine and you wind up with a nice solid stripe.

    No i actually havent considered it, but i might try and make a homemade striping kit. And Kris those stripes are looking GREAT! Yesterday i just noticed that the serivice engine light would go on for a couple seconds when you start it up and then it would come off, could that be the o2 censor or the ad fuse?

    To sacrifice the manuverability around deep edges in mulch beds, just for the "clean" stripes... is DEFINETLY not worth it.

    I've demoed a machine w/ the dual wheels and you have to be REAL careful around beds and tight turns. The wheel is further to the outside of the machine so it will go into the bed and destroy your nice smooth deep edge. :cool2:


    I have the most anal, pickey of pickiest of customers and never ever has anyone commented on the tail wheel stripe.

    If anything, I'd go w/ the single, wide tail wheel.... that makes the strip a little better, but again... you sacrifice some in the delicate grass where it will tear up a patch when you turn.

    Honestly..... the only people that can notice the difference between a standard tail wheel or dual or single wide, are people like us.... who notice EVERY little detail.

    A little obsessive/compulsive if you ask me. :rolleyes:
