    Ive got a 52"eXmark with a stripeing roller on the bottom rear part of the mower deck, I've had it all summer and i finally put it on today an mowed a few lawns all except one was Bermuda grass, The stripes the roller made were very disappointing at best, ma by i need to lower the roller bar down even more than i have ? Is there any one out there who can tell me the best way to make these stripes the way i see pictures of on this forum? How far down should the roller be on the exmark mower ,thanks for reading this post.

    I have a 52" toro float and a 26" fixed deck. I jave no problems with striping. Of course I am mowing fescue and the bermuda may be harder to strip off. I suggeest to give it a few weeks. Sometimes for me a new lawn takes a few cuts to get the stipes to show. Good luck!
