Well I put a striper on both ZTR's even though the turf here isn't very high quality. Not the greatest for striping but I thought I would give a short review of both stripers. Well the Exmark striper fits on the rear of the deck of course and it very convenient. It produces very deep stripes but if you change cutting heights very often it can be a bit of a pain because you can't adjust it very easily. If you cut at the same height all the time it would work out better. If I set it for 3 3/4" then it is hard to go to 3". It does not like rough ground or uneven ground very much. But over all a fine set up. The Scag is spring loaded and adjust to different ground contours better keeping steady pressure at all times. No matter what the cutting height it keeps constant pressure against the grass. It can also be removed easily with two pins. On the negative side it is behind the wheels so it may drag some getting on the trailer, but it will lock in the up position which eliminates most of that problem. Both have strong points. I would call it a toss up right now as far as which one is better. I would probably lean toward the Scag being a little more versatile while the Exmark roller is giving me a deeper stripe. If I could adjust the Exmark to different heights a little easier I would give it a better rating. If you have level lawns and cut at the same height all the time then the Exmark would be the one to use. It's a bit rough and unforgiving on rough lawns. Really the stripes are not that great on this weedy turf but the appearance is improved somewhat. This is 3.5" which is a bit low but still shows some striping with the tiger, not that great but i don't have much to work with, mosty weeds.
