hey just wanted to find out the truth. I bought my first exmark 3 yrs ago and put a striping kit on back then. i purchased my second exmark last year and went to a company in york pa to buy my striping kit and they told me i had to buy it from the dealer I bought the tractor from they no longer sold to the public. I just got a letter from York sheet metal and they now told me if I needed to buy another striper I can purchase it from them for $249.95. They told me you guys are no longer buying the striper from them and are making it yourself. so you have stolen their invention and are now going to sell it for $350.00. GOOD LUCK I will tell everyone I know with an eXmark where they can go to purchase one for $100.00 less than you are selling the same product for.
