    When you go down a slope and back up it changes the grass height, so it appears to look like scalping to other areas..
    Taking a trimmer to level out hill isn't out of question...!

    And you do a really good job of staying straight on your slopes!

    You're one of the very few alive that can stripe dips correctly. Welcome to the club. Usually most people get a curve in them.

    Ya but that last pic looks like it was done with a walkbehind.. Alot easier vs zero turn..

    Well Weaver, congrats on the good eye! In truth, I went back to using only walkbehinds a few season's ago. And all those sloped properties were a big part of the decision.

    Walkbehinds for me also so much more versitile.

    How should I set my scag 36" wb up to stripe well for next season? It stripes pretty well now and I got high rise blades for it. Any other ideas? I'm in the Midwest btw. Thanks
