    Have a lawn business in the new england region, but this past winter have spent alot of time in Florida and seen some interesting things that companies people use down there. I went to incorporate a few of them up in the new england region .. one is an attachment that fits to your outtake/shoot of your mower deck.... made of metal acts like a mulcher cover on outtake but has perforated holes to allow grass to escape but small enough for stop rocks and debris from shooting and possibly causing damage. It attaches to mower utilizing the bolts and screws that attach grass catcher attaches and the plastic cover on the outtake, that every commercial guy never uses...

    Can you help me find what they are called and where I can get them

    Thanks

    Also The Cages they put on the front of the trailers attaching to the body of trailer sitting up about two feet above frame so you dont lose trailer space but allows you a place to house gas cans and the like is pretty cool..... I talk to trailer companies in the north and the look at me like I have two heads..

    I don't know the manufacturer of the OCDC but it is a "national" brand, search online.

    The cages are fabricated by local shops to your specs.

    That proves it southerners are not as dumb as you northerners think:laugh::laugh:

    The cage on the front of the trailer is very common around here you can purchase a trailer with it already on it

    I believe what you are referring to is the VULCHER II @ Vulcher.com I just went there and they used to have a video of it and how it worked...

    I wish I could remember. Yes, they made some changes to the website and it no longer shows the video of it in operation. If I recall it was essentially an OCDC with some slots in it that allowed for mulching but don't quote me on that...it's been a while since I seen it in action.
