Looks good.. what type of mower are you using?

04-28-2005, 01:27 PM
Those are done with a 36" gravely with my own striping kit attached.

Looks good, nice to see some sun, green grass and a leaf or two on the trees.

Wow, nice stripes.

nice lines !!!!!!!!!!

(wtf is the 3rd pic of?
the catbox? -j/k j/k, lol!!)

you need to sell them on some fence seal and stain.

get big-azz cardboard cheap from appliance dealers, get a cheap pump-sprayer, add BEHR seal and stain, spray until saturated with cardboard behind what you're spraying, in the hot dry doldrums of summer = summer ca$hflow.
just an idea.

What is that made out of? More specifically what kind of wheels are those and what are the mounted on? Looks like pvc.

Stripes look great!

pvc are just spacers, mounted onto a stainless steel rod for the axle.

.... What gave you the idea? That's a nice arrangement. Do you maintain DOWN pressure on your “wheeled bar”? (that is; springs, bungee cord, weights, etc.). Does a really nice job :).

.... Thanks for showing.

04-29-2005, 12:15 AM
no need for downward pressure, the kit weighs approximately one pound per inch which gives you plenty of weight. Actually got the idea from looking at big leagues, didn't want to pay their price so I built my own, now big league was trying to sick their lawyer on me, too bad they don't have a patent :p :p :p

id love to see some pics of stripes made by that stander!

does that striping kit ever get bent or cause damage to lawns when u are making turns with the stander??? i demoed a stander and thought about a striping kit for it but was worried that with it being so far extended, it would get damaged when turning.

04-29-2005, 12:30 AM
the stander is a friends mower, he hasn't said anything about causing damage, but more for looks I've made a shorter arm for the kit to mount with. It will mount 4" away instead of the 9" arms that are on there.

i see you dont have your sulky attached on your 36 anymore....can you still get a sulky on still with the striper installed

04-29-2005, 01:19 AM
yes, but I only use my 36" on small yards so walking is easier than dealing with the sulky, I have a 60ztr for the big yards.
