    Yes! There are striping kits that are easy to make. What kind of mower do you have? I did a quick search but could not find the thread that I wanted. Some of the members have made kits and posted pictures of them. Maybe they will see this thread and be of more help. Have you checked out Big leauge Lawns striping kits? If I did not already have a kit for my Exmark I would buy one of his.

    I saw the one Crazygator made for his Dixie the other day. It uses chains like Eric ELM's did. It stripes like a dream and when I saw it, I kicked myself for not thinking of it. It's so simple. He got a strip of metal with the holes already in it from Home Cheapo and attached the chains.

    I'll be taking delivery of my new Hustler Super Z this next week. They have a hitch receiver for it and I'm going to make my striping attachment just like Crazy's but it will be on a drawbar so that I can slide it right into the receiver. Then I can slide it back out when I want to aerate or vac.



    Okay, GreenQuest, I just finished reading the thread that you linked us to and there's some really cool info there. It appears as though many of us are coming up with the same solutions to the same problems.

    I had chains on my super-z than got a piece of rubber and put on back side of deck. Works great and doesn't get caught on trailer like the chins did.

    Hey Dennis!

    Considering our climate this year, those stripes are killer! Amazing what a little rain will do, ain't it?

    Here's my Bob-Cat with a flap I bought from eXmark for less than $20. I put 1/4 threaded rod in my drill and inserted it into the bottom of it for a little extra weight. They also have one for hydro models.

    Here's a quick pic of some stripes. It's overcast right now so they don't show up quite as good as a sunny day.

    The previous photo was taken on my crappy yard with lots of clover and some fairy rings. I'm in the process of renovating it right now. Every time I get the seed/fert and equipment to do it, paying customers appear. Next year, I'll have a weed free, tall fescue lawn with KILLER STRIPES! Hey, that's a cool name huh? I think I'm gonna reregister!

    Proper deck pitch and sharp blades do most of it, the flap puts the definition into it.
