    Lost a customer today due to the fact that my mowers stripe the grass, Both ztrs leave a stripe in the lawn. I do not have striping kits on the mowers, it is just the way the leave the grass. Never had a complaint until today. Any body else ever experience this?:cry:

    Good excuse but I highly doubt that's why you lost the customer.

    My area does not evej know what a stripe is and I have never done nor had one request to do them. Your client should have asked you first to do it different before just letting you go.

    I agree with the above ^

    For what it's worth, I have had them say all sorts of things about striping. I've had some drop me in the same manner and I've had some just complain about the stripes, which I can handle NO PROBLEM!!!

    I just give those the old round-n-round carpet cut in half the time, and I'm on my way.

    And why would you do that if a customer actually complained about the stripes?

    Some people honestly, legitimately do not like the stripes.
    To them it either looks like crappy STREAKS...
    Or it appears too flashy for their taste...

    I have some of both types.
