I've installed one on my 1500Z. It's basically a mudflap not a roller, and costs $80. However they charged $35 to ship it. The striping could be better. Parts of my yard look pretty good but other areas are marginal. My grass is tall fescue cut at 3.5 inches. I set the rubber flap as low as it will go. I believe a roller would have done a better job but I'm guessing Ferris was trying to keep the price down.

where does it mount? right behind the blades/deck or behind the rear wheels? i wish there was a roller kit, after cutting all season with this thing and not my simplicity walk behind with rollers, i think the yards just dont jump out anymore, they look cut but not manicured.

I just got one on my Ferris 1500 yesterday. I thought it striped ok. Better on some lawns than others. Mine is also on the lower setting. I paid $87 with tax and the place I bought it installed it for free since it took literallly 5 minutes to install it. So far I am happy with it. It mounts on the back of the deck.

TNT it looks like money well spent nice looking stripes man, :clapping: give that rubber flap time to break in and you'll see even better stripes.

The people that live in this house spend alot of money on their yard. They use organic fert. and water alot. I mowed that today. Their grass is so thick and tall, I have to mow it at 4 1/4 inches.

Nope. It was a little windy today so the clipping blew around pretty good. Sometimes I have to double cut this lawn though. Well worth it though. It is my lawyers house so I like to keep it looking good.

If you keep your lawns looking like that you'll, have customers stopping while your cutting and ask you to give them a bid. I picked up three accounts this year just cutting my own lawn.

I hope so. I do about $850 gross per week by myself and would like to double that next year.
