    I put a striping kit on my bobcat zt200 today. the instruction stated to attach the brackets to the bottom whole then drill and additional hole across. Instead of putting it on the bottom hole i put it one hole higher. But my problem is if the ground is uneven at all there runs a chance of running a line down it. Any hills and it bottoms out. Has anyone had this problem with they're striping kit.

    Was going to buy one BUT, after 16 years running mowers thats the first thing i could see. It,s not going to do that nice stripe on most of my lawns. I made one out of conveyor belt 3/8" thick mounted on 1/2" square tubing and you can move it up or down with 2 pins. If the kits was spring loaded it would work on all lawns, but they are not. That is the only problem with them. J J Landscaping - Jim

    roller kits are not suppose to touch the ground anyways, makes no difference if the lawn is bumpy or not.
