    How well do chain kits work for enhancing stripes? I am planning on making one this winter for my 42" Proline. Anyone have any pics, ideas, advice?

    Here's the furthest I got today. I think I have to make the chain a little longer, anyone else think so?

    Yes, but not so long that you trip or there might be some really big problems

    I have had the chains on my Dixie Chopper for two years and really love them. I attached a threaded rod to my brackets and slid the chains over the rod. Secure rod to brackets with threaded nuts to keep rod and chains from moving. The chains drag the ground about 4 inches.
    Mount them up under the mower as far as possible. The chains next to the wheels are shorter so the wheels won't run over them. They don't look as good setting back too far.

    Setting back too far! I mean setting back to the end of the motor Guard on the rear. The closer they are to the axle, the better it looks. They just need to be the wideth of you axle, between the tires.
