    I don't run a roller, but I just built and added a stripe kit to the back of my lazer. It consists of a NAPA mud flap for a tractor-trailer, 36" angle iron and flat stock that is bolted to the guard for the Mule drive belt. Just put it on last night so I don't have any pics of it yet. I hope it works well. I am also gonna fab one for the WB.

    What kind of grasses are you cutting with your stripper? Here around the Savannah area, stripping is not a big deal and I did not think that most warm season grasses stripped well anyway. If I can figure out how to strip the lawns here, I might have a leg up over other LCOs in my area by offering a more eye catching stipped cut.
