I had them installed on a 36' Wright Stander, I still didn't get the stripes I was looking for. Maybe on a different mower they make work better than the results I got. I ended up selling the mower because of the cut quality.

They are expensive, but work very well. Well pleased.

Is that a 21' mower used in the picture? The lines look wider, but it does look very nice. I am thinking this will be a nice way to get a new business attention but I will be using a 21 inch honda to start out with

Would just extra weight on the back work? As in a bar with concrete or something of that kind?

Yes, same concept except with rollers less resistance and less wear
