    Ok as I stated earlier I'm starting in 2004. My question is how do you stripe around obstacles? I've seen pictures and it seems like the stripes go right through the middle of trees or other stuff in a yard. Obviously the mower didn't go through the tree so how does the stripe keep going perfectly strait through it. Thanks in advance.

    When you get to the object like a bed or a tree you just go around it as close as possible on the opposite side you have alreadt cut on.You want to make sure you never go on the side where you have already stripped.If you dont understand still I will go further into detail.

    BigEd is right, just mow on the un-mowed side of the obstacle. When you make your next pass, it'll take care of your tracks around the obstacle. Viola, it looks like you mowed right through the obstacle! Happy mowing.
