    same here. In my area it only adds to the quality of work I perform, and the accounts I maintain are seen by many:cool2:

    Personal satisfaction is why I do it. I'm only doing it to a few yards but the customers have mentioned that they like it.

    I would think striping all your jobs could slow you down. Does it?

    Not too much once you get the hang of it.

    Problem is, even without a striper the deck still stripes the grass somewhat, so you still need to be aware of how you're mowing.

    No doubt! Sometimes I wish it wouldn't stripe. Someone needs to make an anti-striper!!!:)

    I wonder if one could just be mounted to the mower deck so it would still go up & down accordingly.

    How did you get power to pull all of those with gear wb? let alone caster sulky? What you do when backing up with those roller?

    I weigh around 170 lbs but my 15 HP Kawasaki has no problem pulling me around with the roller assembly and the sulky. The roller assembly pivots/floats up and down over any object (rocks, roots, curbs, etc.). Backing up is not as easy as with a hydro but I manage... :weightlifter:

    Hey I have the same exact mower and have been looking for something just like this. I have a couple questions though.

    were you able to get all pieces at home depot or lowes?
    -like the cold rolled steel?
    -I know the rollers came from a boat store

    Can you post some more pics of how it attaches to the lawn mower?

    and you said you bought a drill bit but what did you have to use it for if you used the pre drilled holes in the mower?

    Thanks
