    who is running a stripe kit on their walkbehinds? if you do what brand are you using? I have 2 exmark metros that i want to put stripe kits on but the ones i have seen stick out behind the frame and i am worried that i would trip over them when making turns and maneuvering the machine around.

    My stripe kit is just a rubber strip mounted to the back of the deck. Cost me $75 but I bet you could make your own much cheaper.

    This is what i have used for 2 years now, 2 pvc end caps, i think it was 4" pvc pipe, drill nuts bolts, scrap steel and sand. Just bolts to the back of the mower doesn't interfere with my sulky and works great
    EDIT: I just realized these picture were before I shortened the red arms

    yes that is similar to what i am seeing online i do not use a sulky i walk so that would interfere. I like the rubber idea do you have any pictures or website that shows it?
