    The only Mfg that makes a striping kit for their mowers is DC that I know of. Maybe you can bolt one of them on your mower some way. The DC kits bolt to the wheel motor brackets. Here is a picture of one, see if it will work on yours. ;)

    Its possiable, I tell you what Eric I visited the DC site and liked what I saw, I emailed you about running doubles on the tiger and have since then noticed a clutch going south. I truly love my scagdealer and dont know any DC dealers in this area thats the hard part. The scag dealer in town here is great, but the performance of a DC is really catching my eye. It could be good bye scag, but it would be rough just because of the great dealer service I recieve.

    Hey Eggy
    I have a 52inch turf tiger, i made a stripe kit out of tailgate protector rubber and wrapped it around the orange bar between both of the wheels under the engine area. I rapped it around it and put bolts through the rubber so it wouldn't fall off and so it wouldnt move when i drive around. I would suggest getting a thick piece of rubber because the rubber i used isnt thick enough to make a big time difference in my stripe. Basically the total cost for the stripe kit was like $20. Its not that hard either but if u dont have time well then maybe look at what Eric has and buy that and get it bolted on the turf tiger somehow, theres enough metal in that thing.

    Leaves are falling, but grass is still green

    Well of course no response from Scag yet on where to find one, but no big suprise there.........I would like to find one like the DC chain kit, however I do agree it would have to be mounted on that bar as mentioned in the post above.....hmmmm

    york sheet metal makes a roller type one for a Lazer and it might fit a scag.
