Done they come with a roller on them?

I do not have any form of striper on my Exmark and I lay down some nice stripes. It is possible to have a great cut with stripes...
Last week I did a knock down job. Mowed the grass down from 2 feet. After the first cut i needed gas so drove back to the truck. From a distance the lawn looked pretty nice. But when I was on the lawn it looked pretty ugly with the uneven grass. Looked great though after the second cut(or as good as you can get without bagging that much grass)

If you lay nice stripe down with out one means You have a good clean cut
I was saying a roller will hide a lot un cut grass

I don't run striper kits or roller I do have a roller for High School Baseball field during State games that's only place I run it Last year I stripe it with out running the blades only mowed one time rest of the time I rolled it
Now just sits in corner till next time State plays here
