Ok the eXmark 52" TTHP and ProSlide stripes pretty good. I was content with that aspect of the mower. It actually did real good with the deck anti scalp rollers all the way down when mowing at 3.5" or 4". But sometimes on that occasional berm or ditch/bank, you'd get alittle dig in of the blades... so I went to the McMaster/Carr website (http://www.mcmaster.com/) and went to the section with conveyor rollers and found a fairly cheap 2.5" diameter plain steel roller, 40" wide. Cost $17.xx plus shipping. Then took some peices of steel cut to length and drilled the appropriate holes in it. Attached to deck wheel brackets and found the roller to be alittle short so I welded a small peice of rod on the end to make it longer. Tried again and it works excellent. I need to make thicker brackets with different hole placement but my drill bits are too dull so this will do for now. The only problem with these brackets are that the right side one needs to be alittle more forward so the tire does not rub on it at 4" cut height. Roller works very well and now will not scalp anything. Guaranteed to stripe ANYTHING dirt asphalt, etc. LOL. It stripes parts of my yard that I couldn't get to stripe at all before. I'm impressed. I think it has to do with the fact that it lays the grass over right after the grass is sucked up by the blades. More lawn pics tomorrow evening.
