    Was wondering how the JD 757 strips? Going tomorrow to order the mower.
    Wondering if I should get the kit for it.
    Those that have the 757 do you like it?

    I have a 737 and i love it, stripes ok but wish i had a kit, not availible for the 54" deck, my cut still looks really nice, i also changed the blades and put on Gaters. :D

    Ive got the JD 667 and it stripes well. A kit will help enhance the stripes. Really good thing to have if the grass is wet too! Id say get the striping kit.

    We love our 757. I would definately buy a second one.

    It stripes very well, in my opinion. A striping kit would enhance the stripes. I don't see myself paying >$300 for JD's roller though. I might pay in the $100's, but $300 is just too much for what it is. I personally would make my own striping kit.

    Good luck with your new purchase, i'm sure you'll be very pleased with it.

    I have $4.00 in my mudflap design under my Z-Trak and it does great.

    :blob3: congats on the new machine, i'm sure you'll love.
    mine has been great to me in the last season, i hope your dealer is as good as mine. that gives me a lot of piece of mind, priority service and if it were to end up in the shop for more than a day i know i could get a loaner.

    have a great season!! :cool2:

    I just purchased the 757 mulch on demand deck. My dealer is ordering the roller for it. $325 here. Just bit the bullett. I also bought a 99 model 25hp walker with the 48" GHS.

    I have a 737 and it srtipes ok but just attach a rubber flap on the back and it will stripe very well.. Like someone said you cant get a kit yet for the 54. At least you couldnt last year.
