    Wondering if anyone has the factory OCDC for a Exmark Vantage? Iv'e seen a pic of one & there is a lever on the left side I'm wondering if the lever locks into a fixed position to stay open. Any input would be greatly appretiated! thanks

    I have one on a 52" Vantage x. The lever is firm and the factory option is really built well. Handle is conveniently located and is firm enough to stay in place.
    As far as the chute being completely blocked; it's not. It does work for my intended purpose though. Safety around people/property.

    I'll follow-up this post with a few pics this evening.

    No problem & your welcome.

    Many dealers aren't aware these are an option on the Vantage. I had to do a little convincing.
    After that & 2 days later; it was installed!

    Here's a shot of the rear section of the OCDC. FROM THE TOP:
