:drinkup: :cool2: I asked my dealer about it a couple of months ago and they said they will give me a call when they hear about them.

I guess it's time to take a trip to the dealer. Do you have the item number incase they havn't heard about it yet? Also, do you mind sharing the price ($200 is what I formerly heard).

Looks like it was pretty easy to install?

Looks good. Soon we'll be able to lay down some stripes:)


Thanks for the pics

Yeh, installing the roller was simple, took about a hour. I paid $315 for the kit and the part # is TCB10802.

While the $315 price tag seems a little inflated, I believe other manufacturers charge about the same. While I could have bought a roller and made one myself, I don't think I could have found a roller as heavy duty and greasable like this one for $15 .

The roller is fixed to the deck. I looked at the shipping weight on the box and it says 35lbs. I think it will do a good job, just have to weight and see.:)

yeah it is. Given the benefit of doubt, still a lot for $50 worth of metal.

There are some things I can see buying rather then building (for example, I bought an EZGate rather then build one), but $315 for a roller is insane!.

I would definately build one.

Good luck with it anyway.

JD isn't the only one charging $300 for a striping roller, I believe ExMark does the same thing.

I'm the other way around. I built my gate lift but I bought my roller.lol

Do you have a pic? Where did you get your roller, greasable?

How do you adjust the height? Mine has zerks in both ends and the walls of the roller are 1/4 inch thick. The company I used to work for bought those rollers from McMastercarr for their conveyor systems and the walls would dent easily. Looks good though.:)
