    Oh that is a great picture! Have you been getting many compliments from the owner on the stripping? I would be complimenting you if that were my lawn!

    I'd love to see a few pictures of how you made your stripping device as well. You are always creating fantastic devices!

          Nice pictures Dave!

          Rick,

          What made you decide to make your stripping kit like that? It's a very fascinating design!

          Did you put anything in the pipe to weigh it down?

            Well the Rzt doesnt have clearance behind the deck so off the back was all I could really do but I am adding a bracket to bring the angle closer to the ground so I dont have to be soooo careful in reverse (it wants to go under) as for the push mower I ripped off the design of http://patternyourlawn.com/
            They are both filled with dirt and rocks.

              Have you ever experimented with other types of stripping material? Like for instance I have seen dangling chains used. How do you like the results so far with this type of striping kit?

              With the design you have now, do you have the bolt going through the entire pipe and coming out on both ends?

                How I made it....I found the 4" pipe after a trailer moved and left it so I went to Home Depot and paid about $7 for each of the end caps and $4.50 for a 3' threaded rod I think it was 5/8" thick and like $1 on nuts and washers and I had the two flat metel brackets already.
                So basically drill a hole in each cap
                Put one cap and pipe on
                put washer next to pipe the a nut
                fill with sand or dirt
                put the other cap on washer then nut
                put your brackets on
                then two nuts on both ends and tighten together so it can roll

                  That is very creative! I look forwards to seeing more of your pictures as you experiment more with your striper!

                          Thank you. I really like how the stripes are turning out.

                            Do you have any big lawns that would allow you to really get creative with striping?

                              Hey Rick,
                              How long does the striping effect last? Does the grass need to be damp? Dry? I've never done this but would like to try it.
