    This picture is of a lawn mowed 4 days ago with Meg-Mo's on a Lesco 48". We don't need stripping kits.

    Looks nice.
    How about a picture that shows off the strips better. One that directly faces the strips.
    Are you saying that one does not need a stripe kit if you have these blades?
    How about a before and after shot that shows how the mower mows with and with-out the Meg Mo's.
    I would personally attribute nice stripes to the deck more than blades.

    Deck construction and deck pitch is what makes stripes. Most mowers will stripe if set up correctly. My JD's stripe nice with stock highlifts.

    Exmark WB's comes stock with a stripe kit. Doesn't Lesco do the same?

    Meg-Mos improved the striping on my Deere. IMO they are worth the $$.

    You may not need a stripping kit - we will save those for the employees of gentlemen's clubs across America. However, you might want to try out a striping kit.

    Just busting your chops.

    Yea! If you're gonna be stripping on lawns, go for it, no one will even notice the striping. :D

    I am glad someone pointed out the difference between stripping and striping. :)

    Well, you all have seen my comments on megmos.

    I'll stick with double blades and the Proslide -- I'd say these stripes of mine look a tad better. :)

    I did this at my parents house with my Exmark 60" lazer Z. A couple notes: This was SINGLE CUT!, This was cut in a different direction than last week. I bought the kit from exmark so dont think that i just cut in the same way every week. I works well, the customers love it, and it is truely worth the $250

    any questions about it please feel free the drop me a email: Jonalke12@yahoo.com
