    I am looking at getting a stripping kit for my toro 253. Is it worth the money our can i build one for less that will work just as well?

    Yes they are but you can build one for less. Do a search on home made striping kits and you'll see a lot of pics for ideas. If you go with a chain kit you'll probably be in a price range of $100. for materials depending on how wide you make the kit.

    I think stripe kits are well worth the price. Many mowers stripe nicely with no kit. If you have the means, like Playboy said, build one, they are easy.
    Playboy,
    What happened to your little signature guy telling me my iso or isp??

    Playboy,
    Just watched your GIF, way cool. By the way, you'd better get to mowing or something productive. You've got way to much time on your hands to come up with that one. LOL!

    Tell me about it! I just refinished a trailer and I'm starting to sand one I have for sale. I bought a bunch of new/used stuff so i got lots of washing to do. I've sharpened all my blades so I'm just looking for things to sharpen. Yeah i'm bored..... LoL

    What is the best means for making a striping kit? Also where to mount it.

    Many of the manufacturers attach them to the back of the deck. Some, like Big League, make a kit that can put a roller in front or in back of the rear tire. Personally, I prefer a striper behind the rear tire. The attachments can be placed on the frame under the motor or behind it.
