    Hello,
    Would anyone tell me how you guys get that checkerboard pattern ? I would be the only guy on the block with that look.
    Thanks.

    If you click on the little RED house down below and that will take you to my website. I have a page on striping, just click that link to see directions and pictures of examples. I hope this helps.

    Hi Joshua and Eric,
    Thank you for your replies. Judging from your pictures Eric, it looks like your part of the country has some massive lawns. Good luck with your business, both of you.

    Eric,
    Do you know if there are any striping kits for John Deere tractors? Thanks

    You could make one and mount it on the hitch on the back. The only mfg that I know of that makes a striping kit is Dixie Chopper. As I have said many times, a kit will help with striping, but isn't necessary to to make a lawn look good. If you make one for the JD, extend it back far enough so the chains don't get under the tires when backing up. I hope this helps.

    I bought a striping roller for both my Lazers. Extremely good product, and does one hell of a stripe. Bought ir from York Sheet Metal for around $250 each
