    The toggle switch is usually ordered for anyone using a walk behind or stander type mower. We do suggest, in the instructions, that you mount the switch where your feet normally don't rest. I actually mounted mine above my right foot rest on a seperate piece of flooring I bent and shaped. I know as mine are size 16 boots.

    Thanks... Norm

    I had plenty of wiring when I installed a Power Chute on my 757.

    Norm -

    Do you have any more pictures of your model on the Kubota 331?

    I was wondering specifically where you put the switch, seeing as the hydraulic controls for the deck height are at your feet already.

    I carry a 5 gallon bucket between my feet as well, to put garbage in as I go, so I'm already using quite a bit of space on the "floor board".

    If you go to our website and on the left side toolbar click on the Product Images page you can go down and find several pictures of a Power Chute on a Kubota 331.
