    Are you serious? Seems like being a member for over 3 years, and well over 3000 post, you might would have heard of one by now. LOL. Try the search yet? If that doesn't work, I'll fill you in.

    If it worked your'd find it at your dealer/supplier! It's a stripping of your wallet! sells for $25 which is $25 too much!

    It's a weighted roller you hook behind your mower to create a nice stripe in your lawns. It basically bends the grass over. Here is a picture of a lawn I mowed with a 21" mower with a striping kit.

    Wha..wha...what?? Uh..they DO work, and well might I add, and they aren't even close to $25.00, much more, and there are more than once kind. Yes, Bobby, I think you would benefit from one, they do not hinder production at all. I have the turflex one for my 36", the kind in the other post with the chains and rollers on the end. I plan on getting the roller for my LazerZ.

    Let It Grow - what weight did you add to the roller? I added sand but it doesnt seem heavy enough!
     
  10. if you have the one from inventtek....i used 4 cartons of BB'S and sand made the roller about 35 lbs.
