    Here are some stripes I made with my fathers Lazer Z HP 48'' with ultravac on his lawn. I used no striping kit just plain blades. There is also a pic of the mower.

    To be brutally honest with you...looks like you might need some more practice... if my stripes came out like that on my lawns, I might lose the client. I'm surprised the exmark didn't have a stronger stripe...maybe the grass height is at fault??? Looks like you didn't miss any spots though...just have to work on keeping your lines straighter:waving: . Nice mower anyways!:clapping:

    I know the lines were not very straight but that is the way my father likes it cut. If I cut in the other direction my lines would be very strait. I am gonna make a striper for it because it needs it. My toro 21'' makes a way better stripe than that. I have been using the mower for 5 years now. The grass was cut at 3.5 inches.

    not all stripes are strait some are wavy. we did them once purposely they came out nice we also do other designs then just going strait and diagonal. just gets boring u might want to try it some time. BTW nice mower. u should get the roller they work great just look at terracares best stripes ever. also done with a lazer Z with roller i think.
