    Who makes the best lawn striper?
    I have a John Deere Z425 and the OEM striper is not very good. Have adjusted it up, down and all around.

    My JD 920m stripes beautifully without a striping kit

    Do a search for the checkmate lawn striper. They are not cheap though :)

    A lot of Deere dealers sell the Big League lawn striper. They do an excellent job, but they aren't exactly free either.

    In northern grasses you should bw able to lay down a decent stripe without any kit. A kit will just make it that much better.
    Try adjusting your deck pitch to .25" and it should look great.

    I use a Steiner 230 with the MD460 mower deck.

    Those stripes would have made Eric Elm proud. Nice work! :)

    The big league stripers are nice. I built my own. Cost me like $250 to build though, lays down nice stripes though.

    Nice stripes. There is a Steiner 230 for sale here right now with a bunch of attachments.

    My neighbor thought he was driving by progressive Field(home of the Cleveland Indians).

    I need to get a new cup holder. My beer spilled.
