Question about OCDCs

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for an OCDC that will allow me to leave it partially open. Ideally, I would like to be able to stop it at any point between open and closed.

Do any of you have an ocdc that allows you to do this? I've looked at the manufacturer site, and they seem to be very vague on this.

For reasons I'm not getting into, I am not looking for a powered OCDC. I am looking at specifically manual OCDC's.

I have the new Director for one of my Exmarks. I love this thing. Has three settings. Completely down, 1/4 of the way up and totally up out of the way. I use the 1/4 way up a lot. After my first pass when I come back the opposite direction I use it to make a line of grass on my first pass that I go back over on. This eliminates a lot of cleanup for me. I can use my ultravac bagger with it too. http://www.thedirectorocdc.com/

On my other Exmark I have a Quikchute older model. The handle is hollow and it broke after a year. I had someone weld a rod on the inside and it hasn't broken in 4 years. In my opinion their are too many parts for this. It works well, and has 3 positions, but the 1/4 way position doesn't hold if you hit a hill. Plus I have to spray lubricant on the plastic pieces or they don't move well, which broke the handle. New model looks improved, so...

Check grass flap if you don't want a power chute. Hands free is key.
