    I am a fairly new start-up in north central WI.
    I am wondering if anyone could help with some tips or hints on how to stripe lawns.
    i am running a dixon 50" if that would help any.
    thanks for any help or advice you may have.

    Make yourself a striping kit. Do a search (Red button on top right corner of page) on "Striping" and Striping Kit"

    is it just me, or has there been about 2 new questions regarding striping the last 3 weeks? I do recomend the search button. It has rally been a help for me, or in the beginning my stripes looked like h*ll, but am now striping with the pro's (or so I think in my mind).
    Search is gold, use it as much as possible.

    If I was still in school in Stevens Point (UWSP) I could come by and show you how it is done!

    It is summer time and I have a hard enough time keeping up with our accounts down here in SE WI, so my advise to you is UTILIZE THE SEARCH BUTTON!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Staceyfb
    Actually all you need to do is go back and fourth with your Dixon on a lawn. Because as ive heard and seen every lawn mower stripes you just gotta know how to make the stripes. Yeah a stripe kit helps to enhance the stripe on the lawn but its not always necessary. Just use the search key and it should help you a great deal :cool:

    Jason_S Where in SE wisconsin are ya from?? Im in Richfield.
