View Full Version : Striping roller from York Sheet Metal

10-03-2000, 09:38 AM
Last week I made posts about making my stripes more exciting. I decided from talking to many people to buy the "E-Z Striper" from York Sheet Metal. This is an extremely high quality addition to your Lazer. Mike makes them with ball bearings, stainless steel, and painted "EXmark red". I didn't want to wait for ups delivery so I decided to drive to York, PA (2 hour drive) and pick up one before they left for the day. After a less than half hour installation I was cutting the darkest and lightest stripes I've ever cut before! Very high quality and highly recommended. They are currently selling these rollers for $250.00

With the use of AutoCad Mech. Desktop I am designing a sit down sulky with a 60" roller attached.

This will be used on my 62" walkbehind and mostly used on sports fields.

This is a killer idea. Since I already use a sit down sulky this should be pretty easy to add. Thanks for the idea L.S.!

JD engineers tell me they are almost done for the 7 iron decks.

Well, I did it. I finally decided to just go ahead and get the Yorksheet products. I got both the striping kit and the OCDC. Man, am I impressed! First of all, these things are ALOT heavier duty and better built than I'd ever thought they'd be! I'm talking some real steel here! I was making my own OCDC, but just never had the time to finish it, and frankly, I'm glad I went this route. As far as both of these products are concerned, what an example of engineering! The stripes on my new lawn I just started (mowed once - double cut) look just like my stripes on the yard across the street with 4 weeks laid down. This is gonna be AWESOME, especially when I really get the patterns going. As far as the OCDC goes, well, this to me is a BIG break in the liability issue. I feel ALOT better having this thing available to use, and what a heavy plate. A definite two thumbs up, recommendable package. Along with my light setup now, I'd say that I have a fully accessorized Lazer now.

I kept in contact for a while with Mike last year and I got some pics of both the OCDC and the roller on my website in case anyone wanted to see what these guys are talking about.

i just got my info from york this week. yes it does fit the 52" deck as well as the 60" and 72". It is for eXmark's. the price is $250 plus shipping and tax. contact david ysm@gte.net or go to www.yorksheet.com

I agree 100% with Runner on the YSM products. VERY well built and well engineered. Price may sound high, but I would love to see someone try to copy their quality and function. ALL mowers should have a OCDC, it should be mandatory for OPEI or OSHA to require a positive means of closing off discharge 100%.

The roller also allows for closer trimming around poles and small trees, as it involves removal of the rear gauge wheels. This allows for cupping right around and into the area between the deck and rear tire. Also prevents scalping much better on real peaky berms.

Is there a roller for the Dixie Chopper like the one for the
ExMark? I have seen the drag chains that go behind the deck on
the Chopper, but they seem alot higher than $250.

Contact Dave at Yorksheet, and he can do one for a Skag or about any other mower you want one for. He told me he just did one for a Scag last week in fact. All he needs is the measurements. He told me that the reason he isn't already manufacturing these things for a bunch of other brands of mowers, is that he just doesn't have access to a bunch of mowers at his disposal. You can bet that once he gets one built for a certain type of mower, that he will always have the plans for another.

Just for the record I know for a fact that York Sheet Metal spent alot of time in proof design of both products. For the EZ Striper it was 8 Mo. and the Director it was a Year.

That thing looks awesome I emailed them before but never got an answer. I was hoping they had plans to make one for the great dane chariot =(.

Is anyone using this thing in the Michigan area? Also does it fit a 48 in lazer and a 48 in hydro exmark?

If you want to try an economical alternative go to your local rubber supply company and get a piece of 1/4" thick rubber mat about three inches wide and attach it to the back of your deck so that it hangs down about an inch or slightly less than the bottom of your deck. I like to sandwich the rubber in between two strips of metal. This adds support and makes it easier to mount.

Works for me and it costs less than $50.
