    ok, take 2 laps around the yard, then mow it vertical or horizontal or diaganal either way, and it will strip your yard like no other if you have a god machine.

    Just remember not to overlap the deck onto already mowed areas much and it's a no brainer. Just like Joshua said, a lap or to around the outside and up and down.

    Lawnboy:

    The link they gave you is to my site, but for some reason it is down right now. I have a second site though, I have it linked to the little red house below until I get my main site back up. Sorry if you clicked that link and it didn't work. My old site has this info, plus some other pictures that are not on my main site.
