Toro and chute blockers

I have recently purchased a toro G3 with a 60 in. deck and was wondering what kind of chute blocker you toro guys use? I have not tried one and was wondering about the success or the problems you guys might have had. Thanks.

Toro / Exmark are the top sellers. All Power Chutes are electrically powered so there are no cables. Just the power cords. And what is seizing up on you?

The area where the cables attach to the chute, seems to collect debris. The chute has a metal shaft on top of it that is supposed to pivot inside a metal bushing, but tends to seize up over time. It eventually becomes so hard to move that the guys don't use the blocker.
