Default Homemade Striper

Well, I found a metal pipe about 2" in diameter. I tried tying it on to my lawn mower with string, then duct taping the string to the striper. It Failed.

Does anyone have an idea how I could attach it?

i tried making mine and i loved it

cost about 5 bucks to make

take some pvc with 2 matching end caps
and 2 eye hooks
plus some zip ties

secure the eye hooks (make sure there bolted kind) to the end caps

pvc cement or bolt one cap on (cement is best)

fill tube with pea grave,sand,rocks,cement, whatever

attach other end cap

and zip tie them to the mower


costs 5-10 bucks depending on available materials

and it works great

That would have been great to see a picture of your first attempt.

Keep us posted on how this goes.

There are a bunch of pictures in the forum of this if you do a search.

yeah I like the roller because I have control over the height. I drive mine down the asphalt to get to lawns since I'm limited to my neighborhood until I'm 16. I didn't even finish the one I was talking about earlier because I knew I was upgrading from a 33" to my new turf tracer 52" - it stripes fine how it is, but it could always be better...

I've had my striping kit since '96 and have only replaced the chains once.About 6 years ago I took them off and turned them around and put the good side down.I think I replaced them last year.
