    do a search for homemade striping kits. I have seen a few on here that guys have made themselves that seemed to work well for a very low cost.

    i have done the chains and i have a rubber flap on my 737 both work well. I wouldnt go spend 200-300 on a roller kit.

    I have used chains but then i just took a piece of a bed mat from an old pickup i had and it works good just make sure its thick. Its mounted on a 48 walkbehind.

    Hey Landscaper:
    I agree with all of these guys, I have tried chains, and I used a rubber bedmat ,and then I was at a scrapyard buying some steel for a new ramp
    for my trailer ,I found some material that was great its a material used for
    conveyor belts.
    It has a strong memory,will stay pointing down.
    Hey good luck
