    I have a 62" Toro and am thinking about getting a stripping kit for it. Do anyone know how well these work?

    TotalLawn,
    Go get some rubber belting and bolt it on back of the deck.
    That is what Toro uses and they charge a big buck for the striping

    I have one on my Z-255 and it works very good. Holes are punched and aligned so that you can make the stripes more or less dramatic. I paid $49.00 for the kit.

    the toro's that i looked at the kit was $75.00 and looked like what was on the back of a crapsman 21" it was hinged .so i made my own it
    dont henge and is 1 1/4"off the ground out off 1/2" rubber. it worked so good that i over done it and added another in be tween the back wheels of my chariot it has improved 10000%better stripes only cost $2.00 got the rubber from old convayer belt .you can use a mudd flap
    also this mower stripes better than any one else around here and theres a million lco's this is no joke some of the southern boys that say they cant stripe this works so good i would bet if you spent a hour doing this you could be the only ones striping down there.
    i dont need the blades on to lay the best stripes in cinn. ohio.

    see my thead-$2.00 stripe kit

    Don't waste your money with the toro kit. It's just apiece of rubber that is bolted to the back of the deck. The brackets that toro uses for this kit are flimsy and bend very easy. Try getting or making a chain kit like the dixie chopper.

    i agree toros is junk thats why i made my own .it dont henge like toro
    so it pushes all the grass in the direction you are going insted of floating on top of grass (toro)the same way a a 21" mower does. its wild how much better my mower stripes now.i used to have to walk a yard to count my stripes. now i can stand in one spot and count all of them.

    Does toro not have a roller type?

    Seems it's already been mentioned that they make them out of rubber flaps.

    Yea. although if i can fit one from an exmark or build one i think a roller would be better. iv also seen others use chains.
