  • Ok stripes for a rookie

    So I like stripes, as I'm sure most of you do. Tips? Suggestions?

    Nice. I'm still pushing a 21" mower, so I can't offer any tips.

      Your stripes are great, but if you want advice;

      Usually if I can avoid turning 180' on a lawn, I'll do just that.

      An example would be driving completely off the lawn, and perhaps into a driveway, turning 180 and going back onto the lawn. This avoids bulky stripe ends around the visible perimeter of a lawn.

      And no matter what, always go lengthwise, this makes the property look larger in size (which is nice).


      Hope that helps!


      ... just lit my sweater on fire with a match I didn't put out properly... damn.

        I like what CHEESE said, unfortunately not all properties we service present the possibility of turning around off the the turf. So with a zero turn we must always remember to keep all wheels turning to avoid any ruts or tire marks.

          My Toro ZMaster mower creates what I thought were decent stripes. Are yours so noticable because you have a striping kit? Tell me more about your kit, how it was installed, and are there any downfalls?

            looks great but then again, i am a new guy on here.

            im curious too, was this done with a kit? aftermarket or factory? how much do aftermarket ones cost are are they worth it to you guys? meaning, do you sell this as extra or just a part of your package and do you charge more for this because you are already equipped with it?

              As soon as I saw your stripes I was thinking, you should be teaching us what you are doing! Nice work!
