    Does anyone have any direct knowledge about striping kits that use neoprene or conveyor belts? I was going to build a chain striping kit, but the tires on my mower do not extend the entire width of my deck. There is a part of the frame that would be a perfect place to mount a chain kit, but I have the tire dilema. My service center says they can build a kit for my mower using neoprene. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, is my tire dilema truly a dilema or am I just misinformed?

    Exmark sells striping kit for there machines and all it is to it is a roller, theres are made of stainless steel, that is attached to the back of the deck where the anti scalp wheels bolt on. but i dont see why a piece of pipe capped with a shaft out the end for a bearing to ride, then make carrier for the bearing to attach to the deck so that you can adj. the hight..

    good luck, and happy welding
