Since I am apparently the only one who can read "NO STRAIGHT STRIPES" in the June stripe contest, here's a seperate thread with a picture from this morning. This is my dad's property, and I do it for free for him. Damn trugreen combined with a fair amount of rain has me cutting this property every 4 or 5 days to keep it from getting too long.

Shameless picture of my rig included:)

Nice looking trailer.

A proslide would really help enhance those stripes and make them a little more defined.

Looks awsome! Anyone know where I can get an aftermarket stripping kit for my 38" snapper Z?

Make one they are cheaper and just as good as a $300 buck kit.

Thank you.

I was thinking of the proslide. But will it be wide enough to "fill in" the gap between the rear tires? This would be a 48" TTHP.

Otherwise, I was thinking of buying the stripe roller that exmark makes for their walk behinds...

How much $ did you lay down for the Turf Tracer? Lets see some close ups of her.

5800 with the exmark sulky.

I'll throw up a pic when I get home.

I used a proslide on a 48" husqvarna w/b, striped like a DREAM....definitly worth the purchase

How do I make one? What do I need to make one?

Not trying to be a jackass, but aren't these "straight lines" in 2 directions via a double-cut? Is this, somehow, more difficult (not more of a PITA) to accomplish than straight stripes?

Nope, that is not the case at all.

I cut in one direction, and 5 days later, cut the lawn in a different direction. The stripes just are showing from the previous cut. There is no double cut.

Looks like you have a one wheel sulkey which really screws up the stripe.

I think you got taken on that price. Dealers around me sell the tthp48"19 kaw for $4500-4800. The 52" w/ 19kaw is $5k. Just seems a bit high. JMO

Nope.... I'm looking at TTHP's myself and the dealer price for a 48" here is $5400

I also got 3 sets of blades, 2 oil filters and enough oil to do the first two oil changes for that price. The 5800 also included all the tax as well.

Not to bring this back from the dead, but I tried a homemade striper on sunday.

I know I need to work on getting them straighter but this looks a little better, yes?

I'm still debating whether or not to buy a proslide or exmark's stripe roller.

The one issue I have with the proslide is I don't believe it is wide enough to "fill in" the space between the rear tires. I suppose I should get a tape measure and check it but I believe it's about 26" between the rear tires...
