    I was wondering if a soild piece of rubber was mounted on the back of a Cub Cadet M50 and was done right.Will this achieve a full stripping effect as my Toro pacer gives me?I would hate to waste a couple of hours and find out it does not work.Thanks for any input on this:

    Yes it should work try a heavy rubber it's all in laying the grass down.

    Yes it will.
    The thicker and more stiff the rubber is the better it will work.

    Thanks for the heads up:usflag: I will be using a rubber belt from a conveyor line and should be strong enough to lay the grass down.I must add my 34" Toro strips really nice but it is a man handler and adding this belt to my cub cadet will do wonders for my lawn.Thanks for the advice,Gary

    I think you might get arrested for stripping on someone's lawn. Do you plan on bringing your own pole? :drinkup:

    I've tried the rubber flap but like the roller better. I am going to try to post some pictures. I'm not a good photgrapher either.

    Those are really nice picture's. I have mounted the rubber flap and as soon as I did it started to rain. I will be hopefully mowing tomorrow and I will post some pics if it works.
    How do you go about the rollers?Can you do it yourself or is it a aftermarket Item? Thanks again for the help
