    insurance reasons, i keep it on, and just keep it bungied up. That way if i injure something i pull the bungie and it falls down looks fine.

    I leave it on and in place for open areas mowing, Toro's big rubber one reduces a lot of dust.

    In tighter areas e.g lots of trees etc or very long grass, I flip it up.

    I use a chute blocking plate sometimes too, love an OCDC though!

    Best looking piece of metal when the mower gets traded in. That and the guards over my deck belt.
