Thats some motivation for me to get my tractor finished. I'll consider myself lucky to have stripes that look half as good as yours!!!

Awesome job, Paul. I have a hard time getting mine that straight, but I run up and down a few grades. Lighting means a lot to how good stripes show up. Looks like you have almost a rear-lighting situation there. Beautiful. Tacey

I do not get good stripes when I mow my lawn. I was wondering what your mowing height is. I mow mine pretty short. I would think that longer grass would have better stripes.

Paul, those stripes are better than picture perfect!!! dOd^ But, I have a challenge for you... These are pics from a contest Simplicity had a few years back. If you can give us a picture of a unique pattern like these,




I will pay your dues, out of my pocket for 1 year!!! Are you up for a challenge???

OK guys, Thank you for all your nice comments.Ok Elon , No green paint but it might be cheaper than what i got into my lawn , George , No chalk lines One steady hand on the wheel and one hand on a beer LOL . Chris all I can tell you is it was very expensive seed ,well worth it .Don, Auto steering?Just one steady hand an a very nice 68 B-12 !! Rich , Deck height, 3 1/4" Matt B-12 turns very sharp not a big chore at all. Rodney , the longer you cut it the more distinctive your stripes will be, Thanks again guys Oh I almost forgot Shanon Your on !!
