    I want to buy a striper for my FasTrak but have a couple of questions. I am only mowing my own lawn so my situation is unique to one piece of property. The property borders a gravel drive on two sides and I usually swing out into the gravel to make the turns. Will the Hustler striper kit pull the gravel into the yard when coming back from the gravel into the yard? Just wondering if anyone has had this situation and what the results were? Thanks!

    The gravel may get dragged into the lawn.
    But I would put the striping kit on and adjust it until it doesn't and you still stripe, and you shouldn't have a problem.

    What Hustler striper kit for this mower. Last I was told Hustler didn't make one because of loading on and off trailers. it would hang up and cause the front of the mower to rasie, So where did you find a striper as I would like to put one on mine. The only one I have found is from [Big League Lawns]
    If you have another please share it with us on this site.

    The striping kit we are talking about here is the one for the FasTrak.
    The one that we discontinued was for the Mini Z / Super Mini Z.
    Which mower do you need a striping kit for?

    If your pulling gravel with a striping kit, it's set entirely too low.

    I'd be more concerned with the blades sucking the gravel up myself.
