    I also reccomend a Scag walk-behind. I have a 36" belt drive with a 15hp Kohler. I also recomend a 2 wheeled velkye. As far as cut goes.... I think that it cuts better than anything else that I have seen.:)

    As far as striping lawns go, you are correct in the theory that the More things you have on your mower, the more of a chance there is for something to break.
    BUT, your customers will love it.
    I added a striping kit to my mower and although it made a difference, it was not as extreme of a difference as I though it would be. I didn't think my customers would even notice. But out of the five lawns I did the first day after adding the attachment, I had two customers ask me about the the nicer stripes. :D
    In your mind, a striper may not make a difference, but I bet your customers will notice it. In the end, so will you. payup
