    Great looking stripes, were they done with a striping kit? If so where did you get it. If not does your exmark always produce such good looking results. Also, if your kid brother is ever in Vermont he's got a job!

    No I don't have striping kit it just ,But it's a walk behind. The dealer carries a striping roller for riders. The stripes don't always look that good it depend alot on the lawn, this one get's fertilized every month. I'm almost positive that it's a tall fescue lawn. I cut it at 3" ,the grass lays over really easy.

    I have a big question for those of you with striping kits. I am considering putting one on and I am curious. Do you ever have problems with the rollers digging into the turf when you do angled turns, etc? My floating deck mower has caster wheels on the edges of the deck to assist in floating, and if you make a turn on a raised area, sometimes the casters will catch the turf and dig in. My dealer warned me about the striping kits doing this as well. Any thoughts?
