A few more pics from today

Isn't it ironic that the day after I post my first pictures of my stripes, and striping kit, that the darn thing breaks off midday. Oh well.

The last picture is a little dark , but wanted to show some stripes from the 21" with the same kit. I use a Deere JX 75. Its been alright, but would love to upgrade to something more commercial. Take care.

Nice lines

I live in the north where the grass stripes pretty easy. Nice lush lawns stripe real dark and nice but I have never seen a 21 inch mower stripe like that. That is sweet. What did the stripe kit cost for the 21?

I think I paid a couple hundred, like I said a little pricey, but worth it to me. There is a guy in this forum somewhere that built one exactly like it for a lot cheaper. Do a search.

I saw the one made with boat rollers....looked pretty cool. We dont do enough push mowing for the small rollers but maybe if I made them myself I might do it.

Just a suggestion, not sure what you used when you drilled the first set of holes, but try using a step bit. And while you're drilling, keep it cool and lubed with some household oil. Works real easy, that's what I use when I drill holes in my trailer for mounting racks and stuff. Stripes look good, man. What kind of grass you mowing out there?

Always love advice, thanks. When you say household oils, can you tell me what works the best? Most lawns in Colorado are Kentucky Blue. Thanks again.
