    Yard Smart:

    Sometimes the camera doesn't show 'em right. I've had that happen.

    Keep going. The more you watch and work towards this, the straighter your lines will become, the less overlap you'll waste, the better it'll look.

    Good luck!

    At least you got a nice account, you'll have more chances to redeem yourself. :D Always focus on a object at the other end and just drive straight to it. Don't look back and forth at the grass and the object, just keep your eyes on the object, your lines will be straight as a arrow when your done.

    Hey DJ,
    Why don't you have a commercial mower? I know what equipment you have for pwing, and it is good stuff. Why not for mowing?
