    I don't recall having seen anything on this topic...
    For residential cuts, do customers generally prefer narrow stripes, wide stripes, or do they even care?

    I am looking at getting a 61" mower to cut my own property and others that I will pick up, but I also have a 48" that I use now and a 32" for getting through gates.

    What do you guys think on this one?
  2. Ha! I like the broad stripes! 16' wide!

    Honestly, the stripes (like the mower) should fit the lawn.

    I think we think more about stripes than our clients do.
    Cut with what ever is most efficient
