Well turned the blades for the first cut with the new Lesco 48 h/d float deck. I like the cut and the feel on the machine. I will have to get used to useing the controls. This is the first w/b i have owned. I have a 54 Z. Like WRIKEN said it stripes on its own very well. no kits needed.here is a pic of the first cut. its on a small sloap. going down and turning around is a little tricky yet. specialy when customer has a dock and boat lift still on shore.The tire wanted to spin but think its just from being a little damp.
