Wide stripe pattern

The wider stripes really jump out at you when approaching the house.

I don't have a zero turn mower, so I was looking for a new pattern that was easier to ride around.

Thanks

I have a 42" Poulan Pro rider with my reverse engineered version of the bigleaguelawns roller. The wide stripes are really getting some attention. Couple of people actually stopped and asked about them.

Looks GREAT!!!

The parts look like a piece of electrical c channel, some brackets, probably a threaded or non threaded rod, and boat rollers.
