When lowered it will pull the door linkage to open the door and then pinch it shut again when in the extended position.

Yea mostly. I used the bag that came with the chipper that heavy fabric, It will balloon upwards tight about 4 inches when running. As long as it can release air flow it will fill up the box. on the first test trails i found out that the back vents i had were not enough to do the job.

Nice, it looks like a piston from an Exmark Turf Ranger.
