    alright, i was sick of blowing grass in to mulch beds, no matter how hard i tried to avoid it some properties, it always was inevitable. so i broke down and built an OCDC, i have not completed the linkage yet to control it from the handles but thats another day heres some pics:cool:

    not bad, are you going to port it a little bit though to let some air flow out?

    Looks nice. I'd hurry on the control mechanism. I'd be afraid of running over yourself trying to open or close it. Must be nice to have that option though (being able to build stuff like that). Only thing I can built stuff out of is wood.

    tideman i was thinking about that. i noticed dixie does that, i'll see what happens. if the meg-mos dont blow it open i'll leave it, otherwise i'll drill out holes. also the link-age i'm building is going to be killer!
