I've been doing quite the yard renovation over the last year that we've been here.  I want to get a lawn striper for my 42" Husqvarna riding mower, but I don't want to pay that ridiculous price.  I was looking at the checkmate one from bigleaguelawns and want to make a clone for a fraction of the cost. Does anyone have one and are they worth it?  There's tons of youtube videos, but none really say if they're a waste of money or not.

This is what I want to attempt. Use some channel strut and some rib rollers from a boat trailer. These damn wheels are expensive though.

Strut is super free if you have any electrican friends, its thrown out daily at every job site.

 

Then I would do some measurements on RC car wheels? 

 

Looks like a great idea. Might have to try this one out.

The striper relies on weight. RC car wheels will be too light and I always stripped out the plastic hexes on them anyways. Lol. Plastic isn’t strong at all. Solid rubber will be the way to go. I want to make mine 35-36” and it should weight almost 30-40lbs to properly fold the grass over.
