    So I lied, that is a rye/centipede mix in Jackson, MS...i'm using a 36" Scag w/ double blades (normal on bottom gator magnms on top) and a proslide, it seems to stripe pretty well, ALOT better than my 48"

    Looks good Jeff, we use a 36 scag as a trim mower with good results.

    That's about all you'll be able to get, when that rye dies out it's all over but the "tryin'". Us southern boys don't have much of a chance to stripe anything sept when the rye is growing good.

    Looks good though, really does!

    Next: Hit that tannin' bed really fast fore you burn up! :D
  4. Does the rye still die off even if an inch of water is applied every 5 days?

    I hope that was your stance for the pose and not the ground speed you are cutting for profit at -LOL.

    Just bustin yer nads, actually youve got some pretty uniform lines there. We start tomorrow, and I hope to see some sun shining down onto our accounts before too long.

    I never thought about the ole' duck joke would work for mowing;)
    (Homer thats Fun E 1. -LOL.)

    Good Luck this season!

    Stone, if you watered rye 5" everyday, down south it's gonna die when the temperatures get up. Rye is a winter annual down here, October thru April.

    It's nice while it lasts but it just won't hang in there, wish it would.
