    If you put a roller in front of the deck, it will lay the grass down and not cut it right.

    Wasn't this in another thread?

    What don't you like about the way a Walker stripes? I'm not being a smart a$$ but I am confused. You using a GHS deck (which I have) and I have people commenting all the time about how good it looks.
    If you are looking for a single stripe type of look (like DC- see ERIC) then you have the wrong mower.
    Walkers GHS striping comes from the opposing rotation of the blades on the deck along with the placement of the drive wheels and the tail wheel. A single tail wheel gives better stripes than a dual system but the single can tear turf on tight turns. A tail lock kit will give straight lines.
    If you look at DC's they have chains that drag along to comb the turf and give that single stripe look. Its all a matter of personal preference. I can tell a Walker stripe all the time.
    Good Luck

    I have a Walker with a 48 GHS deck and 54 side discharge. I have no problems with either deck striping. we have never done any thing to them except keep the blades fresh and sharp. It gives off a very distinctive cut and customers are always pleased when using Walker on their yard.
