    Thanx Eric, I got the idea from your web site. the mounting braket can be adjusted to drag more chain on the turf.
    If I'm not mistaken I read one of your articles in turf magizine. I remember you once posted alot of tips for new guys in this forum. It was an awesome write up Eric. thanks for the info you have been providing.

    Thanks, I try to help out here as much as possible. I did have two posts in that thread I started, that made Turf Magazine. I figured it might help out the new guys and help them avoid some mistakes. ;)

    The chains on mine drag a bit more than what you have showing, so try it at different highths.

    The word is "STRIPE", not strip or stripping kit...........striping kit.

    Looks good though................what ya gonna strip anyway, centipede? You gotta show the pictures of whatever you "strip" as we are all interested in seeing things "stripped".

    I don't know how well it'll work on warm season grass so be sure and show the results.:blob3:

    What happens if you back up, is there a chance that the chains will get caught up in the blades?
