    That was a good one!:blob3:

    I think its been covered before, but deck pitch and the suction underneath do more than anything else. I've seen a bigger difference running doubles than with a "striping kit".

    That is if you meant to type stripe, not ....strip.

    Oh yeah, the suction underneath is what ties it all together!

    I cant get mowers to "strip" for me unless I put a 20 dollar bill under the deck (garter) belt :D

    It all comes down to cash....

    For most mowers it is all that they know how to do. They start out stripping to pay their way through college, but tragically, it seems that most of them get addicted to drugs and the fancy lifestyle. It spirals downward in a vicious cycle from there....:D

    O.k, we let him have it pretty good. Do a search on "striping" and you will find enough info. to read until next week.
