Heya Everyone - Although I am a "new" member, I have been reading posts and learning from this forum/site for two years now. Last Fall I designed a striping system that used two rows of looped rubber sections mounted to the rear of the deck on my 54" JD X500. I started to look at changing the design up a couple weeks ago and noticed that John Deere has new attachment that is called a "grass groomer lawn striping kit Model LP1002". I saw a couple earlier posts about people who bought this, but didn't see any good feedback on how the brushes worked for striping and how durable they were (although be buying the kit more for the mounting hardware). The pricetag is $109 which isn't too bad. My concept comes in at ~$50, but the mouting bracket isn't as nice. Thanks for the feedback!
