    Drove to SC to get this Cub Cadet

    Found this trailer on the way back

    Might as well show my homemade striping flap :)
    and some semi stripes from the cub(i mowed a few days ago, so i was only cutting 1/4 inch, I think a full cut will be more defined.)

    Looks good, Im thinking Im going to have to add a 32-36 inch mower in the next year or so, Alot of housing is going up at the lake and its gonna be to hilly for a z, so im thinking about a smaller walkbehind. That is a ''shorty'' trailer is it 12 foot?

    Already have an 18' er.

    5 new subdivisions being built within 5 miles of me. I'll be knocking on they're door the day after the sod's down :) .

    I've been hiding from most small yards in my area. I didn't like using a 21". Gonna try and build a sulky later this week.

    It's a truck mudflap cut down.

    I got it at NAPA auto parts.(it's about 3/8" thick) $8.00 i think

    As far as the kubota striping.......It will on it's own if you keep the blades razor sharp....as soon as they dull it's a big diff. The flap helps most when the edge is off.

    :cool:
