    ok guys I have to ask, whats the best way to make stripes with a 21" mower, I have a commercial snapper and a toro proline. I did a serch and I found lots of set ups with chains for the walkbehinds. Just wondering if anyone had any info on making them for the 21" Thanks in advance:eek:

    i used a chain striping kit i made with a piece of preforated angle iron, with about 8' of chain, thats bolts to the back of my lawnboy[​IMG]
    i am going to add more chains to enhance to effect though.

    There was a ad in one of the turf or pro mags for a roller that is filled with sand that fits 19 to 21 inch mowers for stripping. the company is inventtec and sells for 49 bucks.

    How cool is that? Love home made stuff that works good. It looks like it should have a sign on the back that says"Just Married" LOL

    I just double cut and it looks like a mlb baseball field with my John Deere 21" 14SB walkbehind.

    thanks for some good info guys, keifer do you happen to remember their web site. I would tend to go that direction for fear of getting the chain stuck and having the toro handle go into my stomach or even worse........ ouch!!!! thanks again
