    I was wondering if anyone new what the chain like material was that Dixie Chopper uses for their striping kit. I am tring to make one instead of paying so much, but I am not sure what it is or where to get it. Thanks in advance

    Go to your Dixie Chopper dealer and order the bracket and then buy the chains at Lowe's or home depot. There should be eight links on the outer most left and outer most right then eleven links on the inside.

    5/8 stainless steel chain. Have the guy at the store cut the lengths you want. You can probably find stainless angle iron with pre-drilled holes to bolt the chin onto. That is what I used when I built one a few years ago. I got all the materials at Lowe's and it cost around $50. I ended up selling it with my old Dixie Chopper.
