This is my new striper I'm also making one for my walk behind.
Striping kit and striped look good.
Just a tip, when taking photos of your stripes, take them with the sun at your back. They will show up best from that angle. Give it a try.
Looks pretty neat. I suppose that the unit floats up and down, but how much downward pressure do you have? It appears fairly lightweight.
Ive been toying with a similar idea of using a single length of heavy pipe mounted on a couple of sealed bearings. Not too sure of how much weight is too much, or how much not enough. I tend to think that the downfall of the roller type of striper tends to be on uneven ground, as you can imagine. In this case, dragging chains could be better.
Looks like Tanka truck wheels, what is it?
It does look vary professional though.
The wheels are solid rubber and each turns individually on its own bushing. That way when you turn it will not pull up sod, like a solid piece of pipe would. Also it may look lightweight but the unit weighs 50 pounds for a 60" roller. One thing you can't see is on the mounting brackets there is a quick release, just a single clevis pin for each side, that way if you pull up to a yard and don't want to mess with striping it just pull two pins and it is off the machine.
Would you be willing to make me one.
If so, what would it cost for a 50'' one?
