    I dont think my first thread went through...

    A couple questions:

    Can you stripe Bermuda?
    Can someone show me a photo of what a striper looks like?
    Do they make stripers for the average 21" walk behind mower?

    Obviousley I know nothing about striping....yet.

    Regards,
    Eric

    Ive heard bermuda is hard to stripe, but i only deal with cool season grasses here--- for a pic of a striper, go here http://www.exmark.com/accessories_ride.htm#stripinglink and scroll down to "eXmark turf striper" for a pic---- yes, they make stripers for 21" mowers but they arn't hard to make at all, just use some PVC pipe, fill it with sand, cap the ends, and they use steel rods to attach it to the bottom of the handle bars

    just so you know, this thread will probably end up being moved to the Commercial Mowing Forum

    Here is a bermuda lawn I striped the other day. The stripes are not as defined as cool season grass but you could for sure see them. Sorry the pic is not the best, its from my phone camera.

    yup its a walker! It does the nicest job on bermuda. Southern grasses can be really tricky because they scalp so easy.

    My Jacobsen 522 made awesome bermuda stripes on my lawn . I took the solid roller off cause im not particularly fond of stripes. It really makes nice ones when you cut at 1/2 inch as i do most of the time but you have to have a perfectly flat lawn with no low spots. I will post some pics if i can locate some in my files.
