I asked my dealer about it a couple of months ago and they said they will give me a call when they hear about them.

I guess it's time to take a trip to the dealer. Do you have the item number incase they havn't heard about it yet? Also, do you mind sharing the price ($200 is what I formerly heard).

Looks like it was pretty easy to install?

Looks good. Soon we'll be able to lay down some stripes


Thanks for the pics

Yeh, installing the roller was simple, took about a hour. I paid $315 for the kit and the part # is TCB10802.

While the $315 price tag seems a little inflated, I believe other manufacturers charge about the same. While I could have bought a roller and made one myself, I don't think I could have found a roller as heavy duty and greasable like this one for $15 .

The roller is fixed to the deck. I looked at the shipping weight on the box and it says 35lbs. I think it will do a good job, just have to weight and see.

yeah it is. Given the benefit of doubt, still a lot for $50 worth of metal.
