My Temp. Solution for the 'Metal Chute' Issue on 42"

Hi

What started out as a Joke has actually worked pretty good. During 1st 80 hours or so the discharge chute on my 2006 42" had taken such a beating I removed it before it broke the mount holes on the deck that its attached.

But after a few beers and not wanting to stick chute back in vise and ya ya ya again I just used a empty 2 1/2 gallon jug of hydraulic fluid and the 2nd best 'rigger' tool ever invented to man(bailing Wire , #1 is duct tape..) and Presto!! a Rugged discharge chute.

You can laugh and Bash me but I've put 15 hrs on this 'as is' and even though it looks like crap its very functional, shows no signs of deterioration yet...so I plan to keep doing this until Hustler comes out with a rubber replacement.

Later..

Take Care

As a factory representative I can do nothing more than suggest you install the stock discharge chute in its original form.
You are opening yourself up to all kinds of problems if something comes out of that chute you have installed and hits something or even worse someone.
We design every single discharge chute to its particular size deck and test them to strict ANSI and CPSC standards for safety.

I guess it's better than no chute at all.

There is not a "problem" with the MFT....
No excuses, we are working on plenty in engineering and I am sure this is on the list, when it will be out, I don't know..
