    I have a Toro z-100, 44", 17hp. Since the time I bought it is has never striped well, and I have tried making my own striping kits, but none have really worked. I do not really want to use chains or a rubber flap, but I like the roller. I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice.

    I doubt it would fit yours but there is a Toro striping roller on ebay. You could at least get some ideas from that one.

    Thanks, do you have any pics of the quality of stripes on the lawn and did you get that roller at Mc Master-Carr.
