I know OCDC's for walk behind mowers has been discussed here some, but I wanted to try to get some more discussion going on them since we have alot of new members. Just saw an add in the new Turf magazine for a product made by W.E. Chapps called The Grass Handler. I went to thier site to try to get more info, but it wasn't even listed. Is this new? I tried a search here but nothing under "Grass Handler". From what little I can see in the ad, it looks like it slides forward and backward as opposed to lifting up and down. Seems to me that up and down would be better because you have control over how far the clippings will shoot. The sliding action only limits how much can come out by the size of the opening. You might have a smaller opening but the clippings will still shoot straight out and just as far, wouldn't they? I would have posted this in the W.E. Chapps forum here, but they have that terrible music on there that causes my PC to lock up sometimes. And what's up with that York Sheet Metal??? I have e-mailed them twice about making OCDC's for WB's, and they don't reply! I've read posts by others here that said the same thing! What kind of way is that to do business? Just send a reply saying "sorry, we don't make them". I know some guys have made thier own, but I'm not as much of a do-it-yourselfer as I'd like to be. Maybe if I had a couple good pictures to look at so I could copy the design, but no luck so far. Anybody know any good welders/fabricators that might be interested in producing something like this for the industry?
