    I've been noticing how some ZTRS won't stripe.In particular,a grasshopper midmount,greatdane chariot,and a john deere stander.I see these every week in my neighborhood but ain't seen the first stripe.It looks like a garden tractor mowed it.Can someone post some pics of these layin a stripe?:eek:

    I can lay stripes like nobodys business with the great danes...I havent had a problem with that sometimes its the pitch of the deck is off...or they are overlapping to much.

    They (the opreators)could be circle mowers.

    Kirbyslawn-
    what size deck are you using on that lawn? looks like it would be hard to manuever with that big of a deck in that size yard. could be wrong tho
    thanks

    It could be the grass in those yards.
