    As far as stripe kits, most dealers should have one for your mower. My JD dealer is also a farm equipment dealer, so we have made a couple out of pieces of used round baler belt. Just bolt it to the back of the deck so it will brush the tops of the grass and there you go, leaves a pretty good stripe. As far as techniques, I dont know if there is a link to Eric ELMs sight on LS or not. I think it is just, he has a pretty good write up on striping, and from what everyone says, he was the king of stripes.

    Some mowers its just the deck setup. On my bobcat I don't have a kit. I also know walker doesn't have a kit either.

    the other thing you can do is buy a quality machine. that will eliminate the striping kit
