    Power Chutes are now available for the all new 800 Series John Deere
    Z-Traks. Our first unit is now available for the 72 " 7 Iron decks with
    other width decks to come soon!

    Are the motors easily damaged during an impact? The plate it's self looks plenty thick. Do you sell replacement parts if something is damaged?

    Do you sell one to fit a Gravely 152XDZ?

    Great pictures mike, how is the 850 A treating you? I love the way the John Deere roll bars fold completely out of the way which is so handy around low hanging branches. They still need a Michigan seat though. I will be watching the 800 series. The 850 would be my top choice except for the 72" deck. How do you remove the plastic spindle covers, they look like they would be easy to remove but I can't tell by the picuture?

    I haven't got to mow anything with it yet but this coming week it will be put to work. The spindle covers come off just like the old ones by removing that wire ring and just turning the cover slightly. The roll bars are a good idea and the fact that they fold all the way down is a big plus. I was worried that I would have to remove them but they fold right out of the way. My suspension kit is still hasn't shipped. JD had a problem with them and now they are on back order. Suppose to have shipped April 9 but...

    DLCS, did this just bolt on or did you have to drill some holes. I am looking at getting a 997 Deere with a 72 inch deck in a few weeks and am definetaly considering one of the power chutes for it.
