Hey everyone, I am new to this board. I do have a few questions I have been wondering about. First of all, what exactly does a striping kit do. I know its a roller at the back of the deck and that it makes the cut look better. Also, how do you reverse a hydro? I know most of them go faster in forward by pulling harder/further. Basically, how do hydrostatic walk behinds work (both single and dual). How easy are the wider walk behind mowers to maneuver? I have a Sutech Stealth right now (33") and it is very easy to move around, but it is a very light weight mower at 300 lbs and very compact. I want to buy a 48+ mower, but I don't know if I should quite yet. Also, the biggest issue to me is what do all of you about getting the wider mowers through gates. I have several lawn accounts where my mower literally scrapes through the gate on both sides and one where it doesn't fit. I know if I buy a 48"+ mower I will have a lot of trouble getting it in and out of gates. Are there any tricks of the trade to fit them in sometimes? And my last question: Are there any readily available mulching kits available for a Gravely Hydro Pro 50" mower deck? I am about to buy this mower likely and it only has side discharge as of now. I ONLY use mulching mowers for the most part and I'd like to get a good kit with nice blades and baffles so that it will mulch really well. Sorry for the lengthy E-mail, but thanks for the help!
