    Do they make a qwikchute or masterchute for a 48'' exmark lazer z? If not, how can I make one from home? Do I need to take it to a professional welder?

    You can either weld it or drill holes and nut and bolt it togather.
     
  3. I bolted my Masterchute on a 52" wb to see if it fit. it does.

    I am pretty sure all the eXmarks have interchangeable cloth bagger and the Masterchute has a slotted bolt pattern so it should fit no problem.

    Mine consist of a plate with a plate with a strip of steel at the bottom bent inward to redirect clippings back into the path of the blades. A hinge to swing the chute up & down.....and a rod to attach to the hinge and a mount ofcoarse to hold the rod. I made one for my Z rider...now starting on one for the walk behind & a grass catcher for a walk behind. Most likely wont finish those projects till winter due to work load.
     
  6. Very easy to do, and consists of visiting www.masterchute.com and ordering one.

    LGF......I went to that website. They don't make one for a 48'' from what I saw, so I made this post wondering if there were other ways to make/obtain one

    When the OCDC is closed, how well are the clippings dispersed? I mean does it make a "windrow?"
