Hi my name is Steven, my wife started Hers & His professional Services last yr. This will help our income when I retire in about 2 yrs. Learning a lot but still would like a few suggstions to help us produce a quality job when done.

Can anyone offer any pictures or suggestions on how to make a chain striping kit for my gravely pro turn 260?

I hope to post other questions to you folks who are the true professionals with the experience to help others.

thank you

Very interesting! Did she start it herself to offer lawn care or does she offer other services as well?

Take some pictures of your design and experimentations. We'd all love to see what you come up with.

Folks, any feed back on Gravely zero turns I just bought two, HD52 and a Pro turn 260. Both Kawasaki engines. I know most are using other brands but for the money Gravely seemed the far better deal? Any input?
Thanks Steve

I don't see gravelys discussed too often on here but no that you got them, use them and build your business.

Give us your review of them as you use them.

Are you looking for commercial grade or would a consumer grade model be ok with you?

The consumer model ($1299) should be fine?

Have you checked around locally to see what that amount of money could get you in a used commercial mower? So you could have a comparison?
