The same path reduced to match a round mat shows that a mower decks
perimeter utilizes a much smaller ratio of the mat. In the case of a 4ft
diameter mat the mats effectiveness of the mowing perimeter is reduced
from 7 to 4 feet length wise and 4 to 2 feet in width. In the case of
smaller mats such as a 26 inch mat the effectiveness of the mat is reduced
to inches not feet.
