    Striping! I guess it's done by pulling some type of weighted roller around behind the mower or what? How is it done? Also do you charge extra to do it? If so, how much more?

    Actually, it's just the grass being laid over to one side or the other. My first ztr had a striping kit which was just a roller attached to the back edge of the deck. My ztr now doesn't have one and it does it just as well. Cut in one direction (example:north), then cut right beside it in the opposite direction (south). The grass is laying over in opposite directions and you're striping!
