Due to popular customer request, we are extending our sale price of 160.00 plus shipping on the TCA-0230 striping attachment. We are placing some on ebay for convenient purchase, or contact us. We are also offering for auction at ebay a custom built, non-production striping attachment. Only 2 of these were ever built. One is in use and this is the last one. I will post pics 2 boxes down .
The ebay link for the TCA-0230 is:

This is a pic of the custom built unit we are selling at auction. Unit has never been used. Roller is constructed of solid UHMW. Attachment is fully adjustable, and very heavy duty. The blue connection is a special rubber torsion suspension system, which allows the roller to absorb shock from all directions. The ebay link for this item is:

lazer z: The owner of the Gravely actually has the attachment as low as can go, which is unnecesary. (He has since raised it, and tells me his results are still good) So in actual use the bottom bar is higher off of the ground than pictured. So to answer your question, there is no interference when loading/unloading from a trailer. The chain bar is ordinarily up and close to your mower frame, so it doesn't scrape. The rollers make it impossible for the attachment to get stuck in expanded metal or the expansion joints of your trailer decking.

the hell with the velky, i want to know how you walk behind that thing? i'd be tripping over it all the time.... unless! oh yes! i could wear roller blades and stand on the roller and just skate around on it like it was a giant velke!!

LGF, you don't.
BSDeality, it actually doesn't stick out as far as it looks in the second pic (about 6")
In any event, that roller attachment is one of two units that was built by us for a custom job. It's not meant for everybody. I'm putting it out there in case someone has an application for it.

BSD I think your on to some thing with the roller and roller blades. I would like to see someone else try it first though. I always use to be the one to try it first, but not anymore. haha

pinnacle: You might be interested in this pic since you ask about the elastomer. This is a small (and dirty) version of what is on the big roller. Each square embedded in rubber oscillates plus or minus 30 degrees, producing up to 63 ft lbs of torque. So the roller end itself can apply significant downward pressure while bending upwards up to a combined 60 degrees. Provides damping function as well as absorbing significant radial, axial, and cardanic forces. The answer to your question would be yes, as far as durability of rollers which provide ground pressure without the use of physical weight.
We don't build chain stripers for 21" mowers because of the impracticality of it. Mounting and usefullness being some of the issues.
