    Does anyone know if a stripping kit by Bunton will fit on a Bobcat w/b? I may have a line on a used one for cheaper than I can make one from scratch. The bad part is, the guy lives an hour away (a long way to go to find out it won't work).

    Is this an older machine? I have a new Bunton W/B and it stripes awesome.

    I didn't know they were made for those machines. It must be aftermarket. My Bob-Cat striped just fine but I added an eXmark flap for more even definition.

    What kind of stripping kit is it (chains, roller, flap, etc..)? I have been looking for one, but nobody around me knows. I have a new Bunton 2350 ztr.

    Ok, there is only one "P" in striping......

    Anyway, I'm running a Bobcat with single high lift blades. This guy (a friend of my wifes family) says his Bunton is only 3 years old and has a Bunton Roller Kit between the deck and drive wheels.

    I checked Bunton's web site and the Adobe Acrobat file with the specs on the Bunton includes "striping kit" under the list of accessories. I also know that Bunton and Bobcat are made by the same company, now.

    I installed a chain kit on my Bob-Cat Z219 and also a rubber flap on my Bob-cat 48" WB. Both do an excellent job of enhancing the stripes. Both of these mowers did a good job of striping before I installed the kits but anything to enhance the stripes is good. Bob-Cat does make a striping kit for their mowers (ZTR) but it is just a rubber flap for about $30.00 (according to my dealer).
