    Make them for the WB's... Everybody makes an OCDC for the riders because it is easy... You will get a lot of sales if you make one for the WB's because there aren't any around....

    You will sell a bunch of them if they are reliable.

    This is the truth, Dixie's OCDC and the quickchute work fine. Walkbehinds need them also. Make them work so that you can still use an accerlator catcher also ( not hard on Hustlers)

    There is a big market with WB's IMO

    Not digging, but what model car did that window motor come out of.......?

    Since the inner door panels of cars are not 100% dry environments, using the a window motor is a good choice...

    I could se emy guys opening it partway and then clipping a tree or something....

    Aint nto warranty gonna cover that....

    Nice looking product though...

    I have checked with my supplier and they have given me a written guaruntee that the motors will be covered in the open application that I have placed them in on the Power Chute.

    If the motor comes back to me in a condition that shows no signs of abuse, bent or broken appearance in any way then they will be covered including any failure from water damage. Now granted... I don't recommend that the motor be pressure washed, but any failure from rain, condensation or normal environmental conditions will be covered with only shipping charges to you and a two to three week turn around. I have not had a motor fail yet, but, if a person has a few Power Chutes in use it may be advantageous to have a spare motor. I do not make a profit off of the motors along I'm just providing them as a service so you have continues use of the product in case of motor failure.

    I know I am selling these, but I am also a user of the original prototypes and test Power Chutes and once you get used to them, you will not want to go back to any other OCDC. Especially with the Power Chutes being priced so close to that of a manual OCDC. Why use a manual unit when you can have a Power Chute for almost the same price?

    Take it from me, you can't build it cheaper than he's selling it. I built my own and paid through the nose for it. He's right, when you use it and see how easy it is to operate and how much time you can save, you'll be hooked..
