    Hey folks, been lurking for awhile - great forums! Need to ask a couple of questions.

    I've been mowing w/a finish mower for the past 15 yrs - 22 HP Yanmar w/a 5' Befco mower. Great "finished" look after mowing.
    Mowing about 2 acres of St.Aug/Centipede/Bermuda mix.

    1) Will I be able to mow w/a ZTR and get that "finished" look I get now. By "finished" I mean no tire tracks thru the mown lawn. With the finish mower the last thing the grass sees is the blade. Is a striping kit my best/only option w/ the ZTR?

    2)For those of you in the south - how does this grass mixture react to striping? Is it too course or dry to stay striped for more than a day or two - especially w/all the rain?

    Thx, Spanky
