    I know this is off subject but it was funny seeing a person that registered in NOV. 2000 be welcomed by a member who joined last month. That tells those who are afraid to respond to come out of the "wood works" and let their voice be heard. It will benefit you and us as an industry.

    I guess that response was a little off the subject, there is a seperate forum for that.

    Shane-your deere WB's should stripe without modifications,as long as your cutting about 3" or higher.Try mowing in a pattern,back and forth,and the next week-go in the same exact spot,same direction,this will lay the grass more,giving the striping effect,now after a few mowing's go 90 degrees to the first set of stripes,and then alternate each week between the different sets.I have up to 4 sets on my lawn,just remember to go the same direction,and in the same exact spot each week(for that set of stripes),and the stripe will get better and better with time.Good luck.

    LOL, that's the first thing I noticed also.:)

    What type of grass are you mowing? Mowing grass high as John said and not allowing the deck to overlap an already mowed stripe will help.
