    Can anyone help me? Looking for advice on chains or roller for striping.Which would work/look better. Going to use it on lazer 60in. Any pics would be appreciated.

    My vote is the striping roller eXmark sells for that unit because it requires no modification, and mostly because it also acts as one big anti-scalp roller. I like rollers but none of the mowers I use now are floating decks, so any rollers I would use would have to be the kind that mount under the machine like Checkmate's (http://www.bigleaguelawns.com). I am not sure about that design because it seems like I could rip it off going over something that i normally lift the deck for, or backing up the trailer ramp, etc.

    Oh yeah,

    Last year I had a Dixie and made a chain kit that looks very similar to the one that Dixie sells. It's not even close to having a roller kit.

    Yes it does make that much difference, and I know all first hand! ;)

    THANKS FOR THE ADVICE. SOUNDS LIKE I NEED A ROLLER. I JUST THOUGHT THE CHAINS WOULD BE MORE DURABLE UP AGANIST ROUGH GROUND, TURNING, LOADING ON TRAILER ETC.
    CRAZYGATOR I WILL E-MAIL YOU.
    THANKS AGAIN
