    Don't you just hate it when you are mowing a strip of grass 55" wide with a 52" mower and have to make another whole pass to get that last 3"?

    Yes because it looks like $%%% and then u don't get the right striping effect.

    I usually just get out the trimmer.

    And thats the nature of the beast. Either your mower deck is just a tad bit too wide, or as you say you miss a small strip.

    Could be worse, they could hire you to do it with a pair of sissors......:D

    Its nice to be able to own several size mowers to handle just about anything that comes up.
