    Ok whats the best stripe out of your quick 36. Would you use no kit, the step saver, or the striping kit? I want the BEST stripe. I don't need stepsaver yet. Any input would be great.

    It's operater skill..every mower will rut and every mower will stripe. I've used a few different reels and many different rotory mowers. If you have a smallish lawn to practice on.........and really want to...you'll figure it out....Good luck

    No one has an opinion on the best stripes from this mower? I just dont want to spend 200-300 if its not gonna make better stripes.

    Just change the pitch of the deck. I believe you make the front of the deck 1/2in lower I believe. I get decent stripes out of mine.
