    I don't know... but why would you want to?

    These mowers stripe very well... if they are set up correctly.

    Just off the top of my head I am guessing that you probably need to lower the stock stripe roller into the lower position.

    The m60 has it's own striping kit installed. Works very well when in the lowest position. If you are not satisfied take your mower to the dealer and have them level the deck and sharpen the blades. Deck should be pitched forward ever so slightly on the tank.

    Ant trick to keep a "straight line"? I've been trying this whole summer to make straight as an arrow lines and it's very hard.

    Yes, the lower holes.

    You can do this yourself in a few minutes with a socket and rachet.
    The deck is threaded for the bolts... no nuts...

    Back out the 6 bolts, lower the whole assembly to the lower position, re-install the 6 bolts.



    By the way... is your M-60 a newer one with the "wide-track"?
    (rear outside tire-to-tire width about even with the deck width)

    What about lowering it past these holes??? Putting it even lower??? But only one bolt will work in each bracket???


    Mine is a hold over 2006 model!!!

    I've had my roller off and the mower has a natural stripe to it already.

    Lowering it to the lowest factory setting should be sufficient.

    If not, we need to explore into other things if you are not getting an excellent cut and stripe.

    Having a roller really low is just an annoyance... hitting the ground often... and causing more movement /more wear/tear. Sure don't miss it on the eXmark.

    Anyways, with this mower you shouldn't have to use a roller to "smash" stripes into the grass.
    You should get a nice manicured cut and stripe... if not, something else needs attention.

    What else could it be?? I have a Fescue yard. Mowing around 3 1/4" tall. I change my direction every time I mow to keep from mashing the grass. I have the "GATOR" blades on it.
