    I have heard sliders stripe really well for they act similiar to roller which angle the grass in a specific direction.

    There is some very useful info on striping at:
    http://www.elmlawnsite.com (Eric's web page)
    It refers to the proper deck pitch - front of deck is 1/4" lower in the front than in the back
    Hope this helps!

    Big Mike,

    Best way to get stripes. Get a Lazer or Dixie and you'll have all the stripes you want.LOL

    Check the history post or look on Eric's Website that will put you in the right direction.
