    Does anyone have a good idea of a manufacture of chute covers. I just bought an Accelerator bagger for my JD 717 and you have to remove the chute. It would be easer to just cover the chute in between uses than reattach the factory chute. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've found that an OCDC is the best for my set up. I have more options with it. I can close it to keep grass out of beds, open it a little, or wide open in just a second. Mine is made by Quikchute.

    I may have missed your point, sorry.

    THE MASTERCHUTE IS AN ALTERNATIVE, BUT I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN CONNECT A BAGGER TO THE DECK WITH IT INSTALLED. THERE IS A THREAD THAT HAS ONE IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT. IT MAY GIVE YOU SOME IDEA OF A WAY TO MAKE IT WORK.

    I made my own ocdc for my JD 757. I have maybe $10 in materials into the ocdc.

    The Master Chute I looked at but it needs to be mounted to the top of the deck. I couldn't find anything out about the QuickChute. I would love to see some pictures of that one you made (DLCS). This is a picture of my delima.
