I got a new striping kit from hustler yesterday from UPS. Was surprised to see it as I was not expecting it. The older first demo kit worked good until it got hung while turning at the edge of a driveway. The lip going from the asphalt street to the concrete driveway caught it just right and bent it bad. Had to take it off to finish mowing. The new kit was easy to put on and seems to be the ideal design. I tried it out how it works and it seems to do the job. Needless to say, my grass is dead, but it did enhance the stripes twice as much after I was done. I will let you know when spring gets here how it works. That really says alot about customer service when a company sends their customer a new product for free out of season and when no requests have been made. Thanks for all the help and great support. Just goes to show that the best mower company has unparalleled service to go with it.
