I had a Toro factory striping kit for my zero turn. It was bar none terrible.
It was constantly clogging and would routinely get pinched against the deck when backing up. (The latter could cause damage to the mower too.) The engineering on it was beyond stupid.
I ran into a Toro rep at a local dealership and complained that it was the worst $200+? I'd ever spent. I explained the engineering deficincies and product shortcomings. He seemed disinterested and relatively unsymapathetic. As a result I take the opportunity to bash Toro stripers whenever I get the chance.
I own lots of Toro mowers and snow removal products and am relatively satisfied. The striper engineering was definitely not engineered or manufactured to any level of durability.
On the other hand I love the mulching kits on my Toros......I wont use anything else for leaves.
Whether all Toro stripers are the same I can't say.
