    Do you lose some of the stiping apperance using a walk-behind, as you have walk on the grass, compared to a ZRT.

    IMO. The WB will leave a better stripe than a rider. But also I believe that 48" stripes the best followed by the 52". 62" stripes O.k. only with a striping kit on it IMO. In some cases if you are walking behind the mower you will leave footprints in the grass that will mess up a stripe.So to answer your question YES you can IMO. I would suggest getting a dual wheel velke for your WB over a single wheel velke just to avoid making that third wheel groove IMO.
