    I'm looking into buying an OCDC. From what I understand a Power Chute (http://www.powerchutedesign.com/catalog/c9_p1.html) is run off of the mower's battery. My question for you is, could a system like this be utilized on an 06' Super Z, despite little available ampage? thanks for your time,

    I cant really comment since this is not a Hustler item or a item we have tested.
    We have no way of knowing what the amp draw is on this item installed on our mowers.

    Mine has been working fine all season.

    I don't believe it draws all that much to begin with, but your only using it for less than a second at a time anyway.

    We have install power chutes on every Hustler size and have had no problems. We had a Super Z in the showroom with a power chute and it was sitting there for 3 months, it started right up. For those 3 months every kid with in 50 mile came in and played with the power chute.

    Anybody using an OCDC with a catcher, specifically an Accelerator, on an 07 60" Super Z?

    What about a power chute, is there clearance?

    I've got one (love it) on my John Deere QuikTrak stander, but I have to take it off when I when I want to use the grass catcher. It's a pain. I'm looking for a chute blocker that is compatible with an accelerator grass catcher on a Bobcat walk behind mower.
