These are some of the stripes I've been making with my John Deere Z425 48" Residential.

Nice lines. Are you running a stripe kit?

No, last year I made a striping attachment that striped really good, but I had to raise it everytime I backed up, (not worth the trouble). Then I bought a 48" wide brush I was going to mount to the deck as a striper, but I never came up with a good way to attach it. I've also tried a few different methods of dragging chains which works ok as long as they're not too long. I just noticed this year, that John Deere has a striping kit for my mower, its a brush, just like the one I bought, but it comes with its own mounting bracket. It costs about $100 bucks, not too bad, a roller kit would probably be better though. Eventually I'll either make or purchase a really good roller type stripe kit, but right now the mower does a pretty darn good job all by itself.

I bought the brush kit yesterday and here's the results on my very dry stressed grass.

Is that with the JD brush style stripe kit for the Z425? What do you think, does it make a difference? Is it much different than before? Have you tried it out on any other grass?
