Check the deck pitch. Usually that's the problem. Most any mower will stripe like a bandit if the deck is set up properly. Being you're from VA. The grass isn't the problem.

Like Greg said, check the pitch on your deck. Make sure the pitch is set properly to specifications set by Deere in your owner's manual.

I am assuming that since it is a 757 that it has a 7ironII deck on it, if that is the case just go into your Deere dealer and buy the striping kit that Deere offers for their decks.

As far as the side bagger goes, you will be putting a side bagger on a high performance deck. It will collect grass well but won't be as good as an entire spindle driven collection system.

The 7 Iron II deck on my Z720A stripes like this (see my post in this link) with the rear of the deck set in accordance with the owners manual ( rear of deck 1/4" higher than the front, checked with my Deere gauge on nice smooth, and level new cement)-

Like some others have said check your deck pitch and my deere usually stripes better when I mow the yards about 3 1/2 inches high. If you cut close it usually wont stripe as good.

Last I knew, Deere did not make a stripe roller for the 54" 7 iron or 7 iron II. You don't need it anyways. make sure your deck pitch is 3/8" diffference from front to back. Everybody is going to say no more than a 1/4" but this is how i set up all three of my 757's and they all stripe. If you really want good stripe, put double blades on them. But yourself a set of blades for a 52" Dixie Chopper, make sure you get high lifts, notched. Put these under the stock Deere highlifts. With the Deere blades being stepped blades, the Deere blades will be about a 1/8" lower, so the Dixie Chopper blades will be fine if they are a little shorter. :waving:

Go to the "attachments/parts" tab and scroll down to the third attachment from the bottom. Deere offers the striping roller for both PRO decks and II decks in the 54" size. Deere lists it for $393.00.

Order a TCB10833. It's the striping roller kit for the 54" 7 iron deck...
