Most 3000 series decks use striping rollers on the rear of the decks. The rollers are very expensive from CC.

I have found that these: (Stens 210-175)

are MUCH cheaper and work well.

You need to drill the center holes to 3/4", but that is no big deal. I find that a step bit(w/max diameter of 3/4") works well and I usually drill half way from one end and then flip and drill the rest of the way from the other end.

Good way to get around outrageously priced OEM parts. Good work.

Nice find. Mine are a little chewed up but I'm not ready to replace them yet. Good to know there is a less expensive option when the time comes.

I've done something similar with these boat trailer rollers. Bored them out and inserted brass sleeve bearings.
