I really like power chute design...just find them unreliable with time.

Ive had my power chute design for 2yrs. 750 hrs. of use and abuse. I ve run in to big rocks/rock walls and bent it in half several times. Just take the arm pin out and pond it straight with a hammer on a flat surface. It performs perfect. It sits in wet grass and mud most of the year. I bet the mount one time as well. Again with the hammer. Works flawlessly. The only thing i did was change out the connector internals. Tiny little metal contraptions you can get at a car dealership. And that was only because i took off the power chute to bag and I didn't secure the connecter and it got chewed up in my pulleys. Get one! You 'll wonder how you ever mowed without it. It really is a tough piece of equipment and super easy and useful. It becomes second nature after a little while.

I have the power chute as well and have beat the crap out of it for going on 4 years. I had to replace the toggle switch due to moisture/corrosion once. The switch can be bought at any local auto parts store.
