    I have a 48" lazer hp with a striping kit. However, I am not very satisfied with the look of the stripes. Any suggestions on how to make the lines look better?:(

    southern grasses typically don't stripe as well as the northern grasses. you could try a chain drag or rolling striper. do a search, there's plenty of information on this site.

    Make sure the strip kit is at the proper level for cutting. I have the instructions downloaded. I'll post them when I find them.

    Where is that lawn JKOOPERS. Looks familiar, but maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me.

    Adjust your deck pitch per the manual instructions. Make sure all four tires are inflated to 13psi. Adjust your roller to about a 1/4 inch off flat ground.We don't have a roller on our HP'S, and the combination of keeping the tire pressures at specs,and the deck pitch,produces killer stripes.
