i have made my own stripe kit that worked so good that if you tryed to make a pass say 12;00 to 6;00 and then a 9;00 to 3;00 it would erace the 12 to 6 about 75% of it any way. this has been on my mower for one week now and makes some realy nice stripes .so nice that i dont have to walk around in the yards to see the stripes .i just stand in one spot and i can count all of them they are so dark and light that if i walk to my neibors yards 2 houses down i can count all the passes. i did this with $2.00 worth of bolts and washers and a 1/2 inch piece of rubber that a gravel pit gave me for free off of a convayer belt i had enough rubber to do it 2 times once under the deck and once in between the rear wheels of my dane chariot this has improved the stripe 1000% better. i made a post yesterday about checkers this stripe kit worked so good that i could not make checkers .well i fixed that i had the rubbers even with the ground they was raking the grass hard so now i cut some off now i have a checkerd yard. they are now set at 1 3/4 up from level ground and still work great. some one else please do this that has a camera to post pics .it will be worth the time and the best $2.00 ever spent .i even put it on my 21" mower and that crapsman stripes now.
