    If I get a striping kit for an Exmark, will you be striping every thing you mow? Can you raise, it or remove it quickly as not to have to?

    If you buy an Exmark, you'll be striping everything you mow anyway. Yes, it is adjustable, but it continully hits the top of the grass, even at the highest adjustment.

    Runner, Pace,

    What are we talking about here? A striping kit offered by eXmark? It is adjustable? Is this the YSM eZStriper that I have? I'm a little confused I guess.

    Tom,
    Yes, I was reffering to the York striper myself. It's the only one available that I know of. I would like to make my own, only have it a little closer to the Dixie kit with the chains. Even though they drag continuously, they are still much simpler and probably more durable than the roller.

    I think that if you have something dragging all the time that it would give you an uneven look by bringing up last weeks clippings. I find that the EZ Striper rolls the grass down and isn't abrasive on the lawn. YSM redesigned their brackets for the striper so it has more adjustment for mowing at a lower level.

    Do those striping rollers ever catch on water meter pits or the such? Looks like chains would be better in this fashion?

    Peace!

    The EZ-Striper roller is very much like the anti-scalp rollers seen under the deck of most non-eXmark mowers. They hang about a 1/4" lower than OEM anti-scalp rollers and go all the way across the deck. Only if I lower my cut to say...less than 2.5" do I notice that it hits irregular ground obstructions. And when it does, it just rolls right over them. Very good quality and workmanship!

    I just got my EZ striper in the mail not too long ago, looks very well built. I'm excited to see how it works.
