Where can I find a stripe kit for my 36 inch john deere walkbehind?
you can build a striper by using rubber bed mat material and attaching it to the rear of your deck.
ahhhh, not a gs30 i hope? I like toro's way on their walk-behinds. take those clamps with the rubber insulation, wrap them around the axle and hang a length of rubber material from them. no worries of getting sucked under your deck.
yeah it is the gs 30 whats wrong with that?

I have a gs 30. It's a great machine... Though I don't use it anymore due to the fact that it's a belt drive. However, the timed blades make for a very good cut... and their high impact plastic mulch kits are 2nd to none. I pretty much keep it because it's pretty and green. PS, I wouldn't have a toro wb... even if it was given to me.
really? my 15 year old bob-cat cut wayyyyy better then my '30. and the timed deck was such a pain in the but. Until recently, i've never even seen a john deere that can mow a lawn, just maul it.
I made a "striping kit" for my JD GS30 WB by attaching a 16" x 36" x 1.5" piece of rubber matting that is used in horse stalls (can be found @ TSC) via 2 bolts to the 2 shipping brackets located on the lower rear part of the power frame. It drags the ground about 3 to 4" and actually stripes pretty well. Total cost was about $14, and took me 15 minutes to install.
Bringing this one back from the dead..
Long time reader, first time poster.
Any pics of the stripes?
Does anyone else have any input on the subject?
TLC, Question on how low you punched your holes for the bolts at the top of the strip. Pics would be much appreciated but if not, I just need to know how much to leave at the top.
