I've been studying all the posts regarding homemade stripers, planning on making my own. It seems to be agreed that the striper only needs to fit inside the width of the rear tires, as the tires act as stripers themselves. This is a great design, and keeps the width of the striper to a minimum. My problem with my 72" deck is that it extends almost a foot beyond the outside edges of the rear tires. For the striper to be effective, it will have to be a full 72" in width. Just seems to me that at that point, the hassle of dealing with it outweighs the benefits of the stripes. I'm afraid I'll be wrapping it around trees and gateposts everytime I mow around one. Am I missing something here? Surely some 72" decks have striping kits. Any advice would be appreciated.
