So I can tell you right up front that you will have to run the roller LOW and let it handle the task of striping... as I said, the eXmark is the same way.

.

The tri-advantage might not stripe stock out of the box down there, here in my neck of the woods it lays down well defined stripes, without a roller.The tri-advantage pitched between 1/8 and a 1/4 inch , stripes our turf exceptionally well.

You are in Illinois though... not North Carolina...

Even the exact same variety of Turf Type Tall Fescue has different characteristics here... though you might get some stripes from it here if it was a shade lawn.

See post #32

But with the roller installed and set low it stripes nicely.

I have the 757 60 incher. I am in Belmont, NC and it stripes reasonably well but not great. I can tell from week to week the direction that I last cut but it does not leave much of a diamond pattern effect. However, I do find that the shorter that I cut a lawn the better the striping results - why, I don't know.
