Long story short. I mow with an Exmark Metro 48 belt drive with a Pro Slide. My lawns look freakish with the stripes that combo lays down. I demoed an Exmark 48 hydro with a floating deck today and was amazed at what can be done with a hydro. Now I must have a hydro...........Now my question, there is no doubt in my mind that a Stander will be faster than any Exmark, sulky combo I can put together but, the Exmark combo will leave the lawns looking like a ball field................ What do you Stander guys do to lay a stripe? It's not my customers that have gotten used to the look of the stripes, it's me. Go down any block where I have an account and you know immediately which houses I've done. I don't want to give that look up but, I would like to go as fast as the Stander and still stand out..............I have a lot of respect for the Stander but, I want those stand out stripes.......Any suggestions before I make that Exmark TTHP 48 my mower?
