    I hope no one minds that I created an annex to "Stripes 2001."
    Stripes 2001 has pictures of magnificent lawns, but that thread is so full, it takes forever to load.
    About the title, I advertise "Dixie Chopper Enhanced Lawns," but didn't want to limit this thread to that.
    Please show off some more pictures.
    Here's one I mowed yesterday.

    I think with every pic of stripes you should add what type of grass it is in the picture. Just curious.

    Thanks Rich, and good idea Brian.
    That first lawn is one of my best stripers. It's about 90/10 Fescue/Blue. The second is about 50/50 Fescue/Blue. The third is 30/30/30 Fescue/Blue/weeds. This one has been a tough one to show any pattern.
    These are all cut at 3.5"-4", with a DC XF2400-60, doubles with chain striping kit.
    This one is about 80/20 Fescue/weeds.

    Nice stripes, but on the last pic it looks like your striping kit wasn't striping so well on the rt side of the mower. How does a chain striping kit work anyway

    Very nice job. Only one problem I see. In one pic you have a hill (slope). But I thought we can cut those with ZTR's. :D

    It drags behind the deck under and between the wheel motors on a Chopper, but you do not need a stripe kit to stripe lawns with a Chopper or most other mowers. It just enhances the stripes a bit. The below picture and top 22 on my website are without a striping kit. The rest on my site are with one. Not a big difference.
