    I am looking at big leauge lawns striping roller, and i was thinking about getting one, i bought a brand new lesco 48'' w/b, i have heard they stripe well on their own, but i want to get a roller to enhance the stripes more.
    Is it worth it??

    Well, I take it you bought the fixed deck Lesco?
    The floaters come stock with rollers.

    I can tell you how to make and mount your own simple and cheap if you would like.

    Yes, can you take and post pictures on here of the area between the rear of the deck and the rear tires? Or maybe e-mail pictures or measurements?

    This is relatively easy to do and costs about 10% of what the MFG's want for the same thing.

    I have a Big League Lawns roller. Is it worth it? Well, I have some high end accounts that I got because I do stripe and the roller definately makes the stripes better. Let me put it this way. If my current roller were to get destroyed in some way I would buy another.

    Signature I don't want to hijack your thread but, I would like to ask Envy if the same building process would work on an exmark?

    Thanks
    Rob
