    Well I was getting sick and tired of trying to find a blocker for my mower, tried the vulcher, was to many adjustments that needed to be made, most others either didn't fit this deck or again to many modifications. I mean I don't mind modifying my deck but to justify paying 275 and up when I have to, to me is crazy. So myself and another old lawnsite member (chadslawn) built one for my Toro, now the plate is a bit to thin as it does move a bit so will get a thicker piece of metal on monday and fix this probably next weekend. here are some shots.

    looks good, how much did it cost to make. those are some kick butt velcro shoes and tall socks.

    Nice fab job. That'll save some $$$. I've been wanting to one for my xr7 deck, but am a bit confused about the handle situation. If you've got any, could I please see a close-up picture of the handle? thanks.

    total cost was 60 bucks, the handle I used was from an Old walkbehind mower blade engage lever. I will take some closer pictures of the lever, but yeah that was our biggest hangup, was figuring that part out.
