    any one using rubber for striping kits ?
  2. Have you tried it yet?

    Anything will work if it lays the grass over.

    No but I hear mud flaps and old tires work well for striping kits. I started a roller striping kit this weekend and it's nice! Too bad I don't have a digital camera yet.

    yes i have been using a piese bolted to the deck for 2 years now .i get great looking stripes but today .i learned i wasnt getting the most enhanced stripe that i could get. until i had just got done cutting my lawn and went to wash the ztr and i let the deck down and the rubber was holding it up and one of the kids took it to the barn when i was done and forgot about the deck being down now that made the best stripe it ever made, even with no blades turning so i rised it up just alittle and went over the whole lawn again with out the blades turning wow even greater stripes.

    Isn't that to light? I am going to try a belt from the coal mines. Friend of mine went to see his dad this week and his dad is going to grab me one of the old ones. I'll give it a tryand see if it works.

    im not quite getting what you are saying rodey, because of the puntuation problems but i manged to decipher some of it.

    You have a piece of rubber (dont know what kind) and you lowered your deck. the rubber got stuck and it held up the deck. your kids drove your mower to the barn with the rubber holding the deck up. it left a nice stripe, so you turned on the blades and did the whole lawn again.

    Is this anywhere near what you are trying to say? Please help me understand.
