I need to know which blades are the best for stripes?
I have found that all blades work well for stripes. It's mostly the tilt of the deck and/or the lawn roller that really defines a stripe
also the thickness and color of the grass
and dont forget, type of grass, too
Type of grass will make the difference in how well a lawn will stripe. Predominately, cool season grasses (fescue especially) stripe better than the warm season types IMO.
Solid Foil High Lift Blades...Lifts the Grass so it can Be Bent Down & Doesn't cause the disturbance that Notched Do.
I sure hope you're right. I'd hate to think it was me
Nicely balanced and very sharp blades are the best.
Since I'm new to the business, give a pass on this question.
What is solid foil(Iknow what lift blades are) and how does it lift then bends down?
Solid Foil are Just that solid lift sail at the End of the Blade as opposed to Notched which create more Airflow & Disturbance. They Don't Bend the Grass Down But they Lift it Up so it Can be Bent Down.
