    yeah.....and unfortunately that "striping" is nothing more than wheel (tire) marks too...

    you should get a stripe kit for your mower and then show the other pros in your area how its done

    We don't worry about that in the southwest.....it unfortunately is called tracking which is considered undesirable. The heavy machines are now leaving permanent tire tracks and since our lawns are very small we have to rotate the size of machines to offset the problem. Our grasses just don't seem to lay down like the grass up north.

    I think you need to come up with something else. Those are not considered stripes:nono:

    Im not calling these stripes, but from my point of view its the only thing i have ever seen somewhat similar to other parts of the US. Down here it looks better to have the "vacuum cleaner" effect on a yard.
