    Anyone here have any luck with striping bermuda grass? I have a 32" Metro with homemade striping kit and it barely does anything. The very next day there is no evidence whatesoever of a stripe. Ohh and I cut it at 2 3/4" thanks

    I bought a flap that eXmark puts on their walkbehinds and put threaded rod in the bottom to weight it down a little. Does yours have that flap? The reason I bought it, my Bob-Cat lost some of it's striping ability when I put on gators. It works on everything, including weeds! Bermuda is everywhere around here and it can be striped.

    Here, we mostly have Ky Blue and Fescue. I was cutting at about 2 3/4 inches. Recently I raised my deck to cut to about 3 1/2 inches. The stripes I lay now are very nice. They are alot more visible vs when i was cutting at a shorter length. I mow with a 48" Exmark w/b with a homeade striping kit.
