New Toro g3 striping kit problem

    Just picked up a new toro 60" z master 6000 seres and added the roller striping kit. Even before we installed the roller (one size for 48-60") we could tell it was too short. Once on you can see a 2" gap between the edge of the roller and the tire. It leaves a trail of grass up in your stripes! Not the best lawn to test it but you get the point. You can see it her in the pic, the left side of the stripe....
    :dizzy:

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Toro why don't you offer the correct size for each size of deck?!?!?!

    The toro deck sits so close to the rear tire you cant get the striper any wider such as on a exmark,you can get a striper for a scag which mounts to the rear of the mower or secure a piece of rubber on the rear edge of the deck to get rid of that 2 inch void between the striper and tire,i also have the same problem with my toro,but have not yet fixed it.and there stripers are not one size fits all,they are specific to deck size and model.

    For the turbo force deck I was told by my dealer that it was the same kit for a 48"-60", they do make a larger kit for the 72" deck.

    I was looking at the scag kit but was told the the bagger would be in the way?

    Cant see my striper fitting on a 48" deck.if so then the 72" striper should fit on a 60".
