    Anyone using the Striping Roller on Exmark Lazers, how far from the bottom of the roller to the ground do you set it. The directions for my cutting height has it about a 1/2"...seems low. I'll be measuring on a flat concrete surface.

    Don't know what the directions say, but at a 3 1/4" cut height, my roller is at 1 1/4" off the ground. This allows me a good stripe from a low 2 3/4" up to 3 3/4" without ANY changing of holes. Any lower and it hits too many roots etc. and gouges in corners. I found the sweet spot and kept it there.
