Oh well, to each their own...
My sentiments exactly rodfather. No one in my area stripes a lawn and I have never been asked to do so. As long as the grass is cut, driveway edged and blown and trimiing is done everybody is tickled pink.

The striper is easy to make

I made one in two hours. Used push lawn mower wheels. Shelf struts, and L braces. Just over a 100.00 bucks. Here are some picts.

hey guys save you money, the best stripper kit is my own, and it's cheap. Just about 4.5 inches of 1/4 inch belting from a gravel yard. about 5 small bolts to the back side of your deck and don't worry about it anymore. Save your money. I've been using these for 11years.

Those work great, I've used them before. The only problem is if you have a yard that you don't want to stripe you don't have a choice. I only stripe a couple of prime yards. The rest of my customers don't care and if all they're willing to do is pay me to cut their grass then that's all they get.

With the Big League Lawns stripers you can fix them up, out of the way when you don't want to use them.

Ok, had to read it again.
Those would be some tiny bills to tuck in the g-string of a 4.5" stripper!
