    Was gonna email them but I figured this would be faster. Can you get this for any unit or just Exmarks?
  5. Best call them for your John Deere.

    I think they have other brand mower models out or coming out soon.

    How do yuo put a grass catcher on with that thing in the way?

    that's one thing I don't like about the OCDCs on the market now.
  7. Grass cather = bagging grass. I don't bag grass.

    Catcher/leaf vac = on the machine which means remove masterchute.

    It takes about 15 seconds to take it off anyways.

    Ok you don't bag grass buti do. Sometimes I have to bag only part of the lawn (no more than nessecary). l would like to NOt have to take anything off to hang the grass catcher on, just open the OCDC all the way. I will keep looking or make my own this winter, somthing that atttaches where the shute attaches. Maybe make it out of the shute ??? maybe just use the master shute lincage and drive but to move a shute that folds back out of the way ???

    On the exmarks I am sure you could modify the bagging plate so that it would fit over the masterchute. you would just have to cut some slits where the masterchute pivots.
