    I looked at the site is there any VIDIEO to look at to see it work?
    And how fast does it work?
    Does it fold up out of the way?

    We have no video yet, but the chute works from fully closer to fully open in 8/10ths of a second or vice versa. It does open fully out of the way (at a full right angle to the deck), but technically is only to be run fully open to clear close tolerances such as gateways and such for conform to OSHA standards for safety. How the chute is used by the operator is out of our control.

    Remember that Power Chute is the only OCDC that you never have to take your hands off of the controllers to operate as it runs by a convienent powered foot pedal. You never loose forward momentum or control in a turn as you do with all manual OCDC's when you must run them by hand, thus releasing the controller to close, and then again, open the manual chute back up.

    Besides running the Power Chute open or closed a simple tap of the foot pedal also angles the Power Chute to control the defelection angle as to how far the clippings deperse out if wide open is too far for them to spread. You can stop the Power Chute any where along it's path besides fully open or fully closed.

    Also check the pricing of the Power Chute as compared to manual OCDC's as our pricing, is sometimes, within a few dollars of a manual chute. Full power with a lifetime motor warranty!

    Thanks Norm
