    found some park smart things for the garage...kinda like speed bumps so u know where to stop in the garage..cut out the flat rubber and used it....pretty thick....the flaps bend a little on pavement so i think it should have enough down pressure on a nice carpet of grass :blob1: hehe...i can only wait and see...if this dont work ill take the rubber off and put on chains.

    its pretty solid...a few more braces and a metal blade would make a nice grader :blob4:

    I take it some part of the structure will flex enough whether going up a ramp or a bank without bending or breaking it. The striper sticks out pretty far from the back wheel so I hope it works out for you. If it does, your lawns will look great. Don't forget to alternate patterns. Checkerboards make lawns look like ball parks and golf courses! Good luck! Let us know how you make out.
