    Ok, ive been thinking about an idea for a striper, im going to try to explain it so bear with me!! I am thinking of it for a WB for now and will be attached towards the back somewhat like a big league lawns stripe kit. Heres the idea


    Have the arms connecting it to the frame of the mower spring loaded. I am unsure of what i want to do as far as a roller, This will do two things.

    1- provide light but sufficient downpressure to lay down a nice stripe
    2- Also allow it to move up and down with the contour of the ground, so if you came up to a high spot in the middle, you wouldn't mess up the turf there.

    So, anyone have any ideas for a roller or circumstances where this may not work? if you could even understand my description!! Thanks guys
