    Heres a pic of a chain striper I put on my 737 tonight, it was originally on my JD4100 when I used it with a belly mower. We'll see how it works tomorrow. It needes some adjustment for backing up off the trailer, at first it was bottoming out on the ground/getting under the drive tires, should be good to go now.

    I have 2 737's and have a homemade chain kit on one of them. Works good. I think though you need more chains and loose the bars on the ground. I'll take a pic of mine tomorrow (if I remember). Along with the awesome cut, now you can lay some nice lines! Heres one of mine...

    i agree, you need more chains. And you only need to go inbetween the rear tires. I bolted mine on those holes that are pre drilled. Looks like you bolted yours on there also. Good luck.

    Yea mine are just in between the tires. I lost my camera, so as soon as I find it, I'll take pics. I think the chains are great, but I'm thinking that rollers would do better. Dunno. I also have rubber flaps right behind the deck and they seem to work pretty good too.

    Hey stumper, how do you like the bagging kit? I need to get one for mine. I bought the mulching kit but really don't like it. Makes a mess with just a little moisture.

    works great.
    wish it was a 3 bagger, fills up fast when dethatching. I'm running it when dethathing & cleaning up leaves, using gator blades, so far I'm very happy with the job it does. with the counter weights on it don't even feel light up front when packed full and going up hill. it could easily handle a third bag.
