    The ACS has been out for a while now...

    What do you owners think of them?

    Is there any reason I shouldn't buy one or anything?

    Just wondering because if I'm not going to buy the ACS, I've gotta get my butt over to the shop and start fabricating my own real soon. Winter is flying by now... and it won't be long til spring.

    If they were selling a lot of them Dixie would probably intervene. It seems like Dixie is letting the little nobody OCDC makers slide while going after big sellers. Has anybody ever wondered why Dixie is the only OEM to offer an OCDC?

    My opinion is it is a P.O.S. Handle has broke off 3 times now, from the stress of opening and closing. Designed for the Bad Boy, not any other mower. Just a very universal fit. The holes to let the air out, plug up within 20 minutes of using the thing, they are too small.

    Ive been well pleased with mine, only problem I had was a 1/4 inch bolt broke theat the spring attacthes to. But after 2 years of use ........ that was just normal wear far as I was concerned. Ive never had much problems with the holes clogging either

    If this is the ocdc I believe it is, which I have commented on before -- I would say NO as it looks like a near-direct copy of the Trimmer Trap Blade Blocker (of which I have TWO which work PERFECTLY). No crummy meg mo's for me either, using those were the LONGEST couple of hours of my life!

    What about the Trac Vac model? It is just a rubber flap that covers the discharge chute, and I think only costs about 100 bucks. Fairly cheap if all you are looking to do is block off to cut around cars and beds
