Yeah...prolly wont cost me a dime..
I have a little steel laying around...and 7 in. cutoff wheels are amazing...
I wont make the first cut until I'm positive that it will work...

Now..If sumbuddy wants to trade a 60" Dixie Chopper or Exmark Lazer Z...

Does ODC=Operator Discharge Chute? I don't have much time on Dixie stuff--don't know why you couldn't make it work.

On the other hand, depending on your brothers good nature, it looks like a good opportunity to swap trailers with him.

I have seen 12 foot bush hogs with this concept, all 3 gear boxes were on a fixed deck but the "wings" folded up for transport, you just had to make sure the blades didn't swing out and hit something.
Make the top cut just outboard of the right spindle but don't cut the skirts. Then build a heavy duty piano hinge out of small pipe and steel rod. Weld alternating sections of the pipe to the deck and wing. With the hinge in place, cut the skirts/ baffles and youre done.

Go down 1 deck size. You know which brand will work.

I hear you....I just don't have a 60" Lazer deck layin around...
Besides...that might actually involve spending some money...
Its a 2001 model...so modifying the deck ain't gonna hurt the MSRP...

In reality it could help it...... Think about motor homes and travel trailers with slide outs !
