    Wow thats a big area. Nice stripes. How wide is the mower deck? do you go the same direction every time?
    What is that corporation of co. that owns the property?

    All my properties could fit in that whole area i think. None of mine are even as acre.

    That would be the place to try drawing designs in the grass. . . hehe some people don't take too kindly to that, though. It looks great.

    BTW how do you line up before you start the first pass? I've heard of using rods on the front of the mower, a distant object, GPS, etc. Just curious.

    Somebody told me to mow "I love you" for my girlfriend. She'd get a kick out of that.

    What a way to ask your girlfriend to marry you...:waving:
