    when i look at the strips i don't even see where people turn at. It just looks as they drive right though a tree in the middle of a yard. how is it done.

    we spend the extra money to get the matter-mover accessory when we buy mowers. it allows half the machine to go around one side and half the other, just like in cartoons.

    When you are one lane away, cut around tree and proceed down to end. Turn around and head to tree dodgeing at last possible moment. Tracks will not have time to react, and will continue through tree.:)

    after 4 years I'm still not as good as I'd like to be with striping "thru" trees. Me thinks it takes lots of practice

    are you serious?
    here is a real quick way, pick an object of in the distance and follow that. don't move even if you think you are off line. you are not!!!! works every time.
