    anyone know where to find a good striping kit that will install on various mowers, zeros and walk behind? I can not go another season with the kit I have from scag that attaches to the axle rod. I have scag, hustler and one MTD Pro walk behind.

    I use a chain kit. It will work on just about any mower, will not snag in gate tor irrigation heads ect.Works great.

    I made mine. Got the chain at Lowes and had the scrap piece of angle handy. I got really big size chain, to increase the striping and limit the possibility of hanging in my trailer gate.

    That was a great idea. I am use to the roller type that does an awesome job. I do not know, but it seems like the chains would leave an uneven stripe. Please tell me if I am wrong. Is one type less superior than the next? I guess there are chains, roller and squeegy type. I apologize if I am being a pain. I just want to make sure that I do not go from one thing to something inferior. Thank You very much.

    Here's mine that I made, I haven't seen a mower that it couldn't fit on yet.

    I have used the chains 2 years ago and did the " mud flap" type made out of an old rubber truck bed liner. Both work very well. The mud flap is the cheapest way to go. You could even have a logo put on the rubber flap.

    cleancut, i was wondering if your stripping kit does a good job, and how did you make it?

    thanks

    Here's some of the pics. I made it using a lot of metal skills, I have a metal bender, chopsaw, welder, and a good imagination.
