    eric--you understate your abilities! go to your website and look at the pics. be reminded of the quality cut of those choppers!<p>BY THE WAY since the riding mowers, crapsman, mtd, et. al, are driven in circles, how would anyone know whether they &quot;stripe&quot;? just a thought!<p>GEO

    Just look at the lawn it self. Your not going to get bad lawn to good after mowing it.

    I have a steiner 420 4x4,with a 60&quot;,and I have a 2000 dixie chopper XW2500 60&quot;.They both cut great,but there is no doubt,the steiner leaves a better finish and stripe,hands down.Its full width rear roller follows the contours better,never scalps and leaves an unmatched stripe.It does load up easy with grass and dirt,but a quick scuff turn and it slides off.Id love to adapt a rear roller to the DC,I feel it needs it,but how to do it without scuffing when turning around?The DC is fast,but scalps something aweful compared to the steiner.<p>----------<br>John D<br>

    to Geo:<br>I've seen homeowners watch me mow to find out the 'magic' behind striping. The next week I show up & they've made straight back & forth passes, but it won't leave the finish of a commercial mower. Another good selling point for our services.<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>
