Yes, OCDC kits are available for TurboForce midsize mowers. Your Toro dealer should be able to order it for you. If you would forward us your deck size we can send you the part # you will need.

Thanks - The Toro Company

Totallawncare25 - There are pictures of the OCDC on Toro.com. Use this link (http://www.toro.com/professional/lce.../g3/74901.html) to get to a model page. Click on Accessories and expand Operator-Controlled Discharge Chute.

Thanks - The Toro Company

You’re welcome. The part # for the Mid-Size TURBOFORCE 40” OCDC is 115-4190. A handle mounts to the side of the control tower (above right drive tire). The OCDC mounts to the underside of the rubber discharge chute and the position is controlled by a cable connected to the handle. It is a simple yet reliable and effective design.

Thanks again-

On the subject of the 40" walk behind, is there a striping kit sold for this unit?

There is not a striping kit available for the 40” midsize mower.

OCD vs Adjustable Flow Baffle

What is the difference between the Adjustable Flow Baffle (particularly on the 48" Grandstand) and the OCD accessory that can be added? How much more will the OCD close off the discharge chute?

Grandstand

If I'm reading this correctly the difference is the adjustable baffle is incorporated into the deck by selecting A= Max dispersion,B= Bagging or C= short dry grass.The OCDC is actually a little different from others I've seen as it doesn't close 100% and fans out horizontally instead of vertically. Hope that helps.

The adjustable discharge baffle operates inside the deck, while the OCDC kit operates outside the deck.

The adjustable discharge baffle doesn't actually block the discharge opening at all. When the baffle is fully open, it allows clippings from the left-hand side of the deck to partially bypass the center and right-hand cutting chambers. The primary benefit is that the cutting deck requires less power in this configuration, allowing for higher ground speeds in heavy cutting conditions. There is some impact to clipping discharge, in the sense that the discharge velocity is not as high when the baffle is fully open. When this baffle is moved to the "closed" position, the distance between the blade tips and the baffle decreases. As a result, the clippings tend to be cut into smaller pieces, and the discharge velocity increases (because essentially the same amount of air is being pushed through a smaller opening). In some conditions, this will result in clippings being thrown farther from the deck. However, in other conditions (especially drier, less dense grass) the higher velocity will actually cause the clippings to scatter more (and disappear more).

In contrast, the OCDC can be used to block off the discharge opening. The accessory has three positions: open, closed, and an intermediate setting. In the open position, grass discharges from the cutting deck just as it would without the OCDC kit installed. In the closed position, a rubber paddle blocks the discharge opening in order to prevent clippings from being thrown out of the deck. (The paddle does not form a tight seal, so the deck is allowed to breathe, avoiding the potential to create a stream of pureed clippings along the edge of the deck.) In the intermediate position, clippings are allowed to escape from the deck, but the throw distance of the clippings is reduced.
