    Dose anyone have any suggestions were I can get a good conveyer roller, or "thick" peice of plastic to make a homemade stripe kit? I've checked Home Depot & Lowes (for the plastic mat) no such luck...

    Thanks
    Joey

    I don't have the answer to your question but have you tried LESCO?

    but I gotta ask what is wrong with your lesco?

    my 48 stripes beautifully and I wouldn't want it any better.

    I have a lesco 48 and man does it stripe well. I dont need a kit. My JD i had to make a kit. I have chains and this year made one out of an old truck bedliner.

    Try a tractor supply store or you can order a snow deflector it would work to

    I realize that my stripes are a function of several factors the grass, blade type, etc.

    I should have started my email by saying my Lesco stripes good, but I would like it to stripe better. I bought the mower used (don't get me wrong I love my mower) and the original owner put Gator Mulching blades???? I'm considering changing to a high-lift blade?

    Any thoughts? Thanks guys for all your suggestions on the stripe kits.
