    I am looking for a company that makes a lever operated closer for a riding mower chute...

    I saw a company on here before that made them, but then I wasn't looking for one...

    I did do a search but came up empty handed...

    any help is appreciated...

    thx,
    Steve

    That looks sweet , if it works without any negative effects it would be a big time saver.

    The only negative thing I can say about it..............is that in wet conditions and the chute closed, it will clog the deck fast. But I think any brand will in that kind of conditions. This is the 2nd full year that Ive had mine and I have nothing but good things to say about the ACS

    I saved $250 and built my own. Works just as good. Just not as pretty.

    ...from Advanced Chute Systems.

    It works pretty well, I run with it open most of the time, but from time to time the flap goes shut...seems like the spring needs to be a tad stronger...

    LOL mine is just the opposite, seems to be stiff and hard to close unless I keep it lubed with fluid film
