: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.
