    do any of you guys use striping kits on your dixie choppers. do they help or does the double blade system do an adequate job. i know that alternating the direction of the cut will do the job but is the kit necessary.thanks

    JcJrfl, My Choppers stripe well without the kit. I just bought all the material to make the striping kit on my own and spent about $70.00. I have not put it together yet because it's been a crazy month as you probrobly know. I just thought I would do it for the fun of it. I think the kit from Dixie cost about $350.00<p>Chris

    Would someone please tell me what the striping kit consists of and how it is configured. I know that it uses chains but I need to know how it is put together. I would like to make one for my Ferris walkbehind as well as my yazoo
