    I have a 36" lawn striper for sale. It is mounted on my 50" Cub Cadet RZT.

    I am asking $250.00. I can build these to fit any model.

    Thanks,

    Todd

    when you hit a bump does that bracket smash into the muffler shield?

    Hi,

    The pictures are about a week old and since then I have added about 3 inches to try to clear the muffler shield. My yard is mostly flat and I have not had any issues with it hitting. I'm still trying to tweek it a little to clear that shield without making it any longer.

    Thanks,

    Todd

    When it stops raining here I will take some before and after shots. The last time I cut, I cut 1 inch shorter than I normaly cut and the stripes were not as defined as I wanted. It is supposed to be mounted at no more than a 45 degree angle and it was above that angle. I have since corrected that and will try different cutting heights to see where I need to be. Let me know if anyone has any advice.

    Thanks

    What difference does the angle make, the rollers are round and roll on the ground regardless of the angle of the brackets.

    Regards,

    When It was mounted higher than a 45, even with stops on the upper bar, When I back up, it would try to ride under the mower. Now with it mounted lower than a 45 it corrected that problem.

    Thanks,
