    How do you achieve the stripes look?. Other then a roller, do you change the blade height at each pass?

      I have never in my life used a striping kit.



      You've got to experiment with deck type, deck height, deck pitch and blade to deck distance. There is no forumla as all decks are different.

            Have a look if you haven't already. If you have anymore questions just ask.

              I have seen rollers, hanging chains, broom heads used as stripers.
              I myself have never used any. If you play with the deck pitch and mow back and forth in line you can create decent stripes. See Ritchiem's post on striping.
              I couldn't explain it any better.
