    Ever since I bought my SuperZ, I longed to be able to use my York Sheet Metal EZ-Striper on it.

    I did some measuring and figured it could fit.

    With a little modification it fit just great!

    Now, I'm able to remove the cumbersome rear anti-scalp wheels (to improve trim-ability) and I'm also able to ride berms length ways without the fear of scalping.

    Plus, it really firms up the stripe.

    With my slight modifications, I am unable to adjust it up or down, but for my needs, it suits me just fine.

    Here are a few pics....

    I had to grind some metal off the YSM red bracket to get it to fit around Hustlers reinforcing ring. Exmarks' doesn't go all the way past this bracket.

    I didn't need a wrench on that bottom nut!

    This is how it hangs...

    Here is a good shot from underneath.

    All these pics are with the deck down and set to cut at 3.5"

    Somewhere around 1.75" off the ground when cutting at 3.5"

    I beleive my Lazer was set a little under 1.5" in the same position.

    It isn't necessary for it to roll on the ground to give the stripe.

    Did you have the Hustler roller on there before ? Or did you use the Exmark roller cause you already had one ?

    Whats the difference between Hustlers roller and Exmarks ?

    I had this roller on my 2001 LC Lazer that I recently sold. I didn't sell the roller or the Director with the mower.

    I figured I'd try to mount up what I have. If it didn't work, I would have went with Huslters' version.

    I never seen a Hustler striper in person, so I cant comment on the differences. This YSM version has lasted me 5+ years and all I did was grease it 2x's a week.

    No, I don't have any pics yet of Hustler stripes.

    Here is one cut with the Lazer....
