    Been checking out some of these other threads and figured I'd throw my own shots out there. These are from two of my favorite yards. Both pay well, both ladies love my work, and their yards are both small and well maintained as far as weed control and irrigation. Here's the first one.

    Here's the other yard, I just about ran out of light on this one, so the shots are pretty poor. The last one is a quick shot of my truck and trailer. I'll be getting the trailer lettered this winter, once I decide on a solid logo.

    Why use the push for the yards when you have the 48? Both yards look great and the edging looks amazing. Very professional looking and great curb appeal.

    edging is top notch, the wheel marks from the push mowers look downright hidious.

    Figured I would get that from someone, didn't expect it so soon. Sorry you don't like it. Personally, I like them.

    As for using the push instead of the 48", the pictures don't do it justice, but because of the slope of the yard, the corners scalp pretty bad. It takes about an extra 5 minutes with the push, and I think it looks better. It is worth the extra 5 minutes to me.

    i dunno to me it looks like you cut it when the yard was wicked wet and the wheel marks sank into the ground causing ruts all over. the quality of cut is great its nice and flat with no stringers, but the wheel marks take away from the manicured look of the yard and make it look horrible sorry to say.

    Interesting...it was dry as a bone when mowing. Down here in the south, that's about as close as I get to "striping" on bermuda lawns. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but until a customer complains, I don't have much reason to stop. At my previous house, when I actually had a yard to speak of, I would do as much as I could to get that type of look.

    To each his own, I'm glad to get all sorts of opinions.

    I have never mowed bermuda before, but the way it looks it wouldn't stripe very easy:confused:

    I can stripe Bermuda fully with my 21. Those are not stripes, but just wheel marks. I am like the Gold Pro,the lawn doesn't look manicured at all. It looks like half of the lawns in my neighborhood where the homeowners try to stripe their lawns themselves.
