    Alright. For quite some time now I have been wondering how to mow around trees or bushes in yards and make the effect of the stripes to go through the tree. My ZTR can stripe yards with the best of them but I just can't seem to get that "ghost effect" (as I have seen it been called) when I run into a tree. Can someone explain it to me as simple as possible?

    Start on the left side of the property so you chute is facing the un-cut grass.

    ok lemme see if I can say this right. Head towards the tree. then gp around it on the "right" side. Now When you make your turn( to the right) your chute should be facing the path you just made. That should take out the curve look around the tree.

    Just a shot. Hope it helped
