    Does hustler offer a ocdc for the super z or is there just a mulch kit?

    We do not offer OCDC's, sorry.
    We do have mulch kits for everything we make though.

    OCDC = Operator Controlled Discharge Chute.
    Its a discharge chute you can open and close from the operators seated position.
    It does not meet ANSI or CPSC safety standards so you don't see them from many mower OEM's installed from the factory

    They make several that fit Hustler mowers.

    Let's be fair, "it" doesn't meet the standards because it's not been designed and tested by Hustler. You can't say that an OCDC can't be made to meet safty standards in general. Right?

    It doesn't meet the standards because its wide open, it has nothing to do with being designed by us or anyone else for that matter, as you stated, a OCDC will not pass ANSI or CPSC standards.

    I guess. I question how Dixie Chopper is doing it though. They're telling me that every mower meets or exceeds the ANSI standards. I think it's just a matter of designing it really.
