well as most of us know, kubota ztr's dont stripe worth nothing without striping kits compared to other commercial ztr's. here is a picture i took today after cutting my backyard with my zd21. i just put new high lift blades on it last night and it stripes 10x better now. i know the lawn isnt the prettiest but its proof that a kubota CAN stripe. have a great evening:cool2:

Sorry to be a "buzzkill" but, those are tire tracks!

I could never get a half a** stripe with a ZD18. I even put a mudflap on the back.

My customers never mentioned a difference in the look,so i tossed it and settled for a clean.flat cut after deck tweaking.

Maybe a roller?

P.S. Get ready to be slammed for the condition of that grass!

Good Luck!

Cutting higher would definitely help your problem and also adding a stripe kit.....my eXmark stripes incredibly well with no stripe kit.

Since i don't think you can PM yet, could you give me some more info on your trailer? Looks pretty sweet!! How much did you pay for it if you dont mind me asking. I'm in the market for a new one

Its a 6x18 holmes built trailer. google holmes trailers and you might have a dealer near you but im not sure because they're built in virginia. after a little dealing, i got it out the door for 2899 with taxes and all. it pulls very well also.
