Welcome aboard looks good. Just a thought but I would have made it at least the same width of the tractor. This would give you closer to the same widths.

uploadfromtaptalk1434067012911.jpg I figured I only needed 2 go to the width of the tires since they would lay the grass down, or do u mean something else ?

how do they do that? Do they set the blades on the deck at different cutting heights?

Mowing in one direction and then turning around to come back along side lays the grass down in different directions giving the distinct stripes.

thanks to those giant pics, I noticed the brooms on the back side of the deck. Is that part of the stripper  striper or OEM?

I was just testing that out the broom... just the chains are used for the striping. I made this from parts from home depot

What's the point of the treaded rod?

Keeps the chains from getting tangled and also helps keep them aligned
