    Regarding the EZ Striper for the eXmark: The roller looks to be stainless steel...is it a solid piece of stainless? Approximately how heavy is it? If its solid stainless, I'm guessing it would weigh 75lbs or more.

    The roller is actually 5/16" heavy wall tubing with inserts welded on the ends. The weight varies a little depending on what size but they are about 25lbs.

    These are very strong rollers. Any other questions let us know.

    Thanks, Fred.

    I purchased my striper for my LHP 52" at the begining of last year. The striper itself now has about 600 hours on it. Still works like new:) It sure makes a difference!!!

    5/16" thick wall?
    Is this a change this year?
    I recently repaired an exmark roller. I had to drill a hole in the roller and then weld over the hole. This roller was NOT 5/16 thick. In fact, it wasn't even close to 5/16". Looked like schedule 10 to me. Were the old rollers made of thinner material or did you mean 5/32?

    I have mowed along with curbs on islands with mine already. The outside tire is completely off the ground and the Striper supports the entire weight of the unit.

    Maybe they cheapened them up a little. Who knows.
    I bought one at Louisville maybe 3 years ago before Exmark bought the what ever and its held up good.

    just wondering if anyone at Exmark double checked the roller thickness.

    I am curious as to when they started making them out of 5/16"?
