    Good ? what do the customers prefer , I also want to know...... One thing I do know is that my Lazer 60 with out a strip roller makes a pretty good strip and to date none of my customers have asked about a better strip.... The lawns in my area that are done with a strip roller look good there lines are always more defined than my non strip roller Z , but to me the grass with the striper always looks a little matted down and that is why I have not bought a strip roller...............

    Not sure if they know what a stripe kit is but I sure they will like a clean cut lawn.

    I say if you have the kit already, put it on, but I would wait till after your "spring" clean ups. This is just my thought

    I use the stripe kits on my scag mowers. I like them and they do leave a nicer stripe if you use them right. I even have customers that pay extra for the stripe. I usually stripe it once for no additional charge to see if they like it enough to pay for it. My stripe kit lowers and raises and locks into place so it's easy for me to do it either way.
