    We are going with a couple stand ons this year. Not sure which brand yet. Has anyone found a good OCDC to use with these machines?

    How hard is it to remove the Power Chute in order to mount an Accellerator catcher?

    2 bolts and the whole Power Chute comes off. Make it quicker by using wing nuts.

    They do not work as advertised on a vride 48in. The motor arm hits the belt guard after opening only half way. MHO Powerchute is the only option for standers. Just FYI.

    Yea I'm not happy about. But there aren't really any other products out there that will work for this application. Just a lot of money for something that wasn't thought all the way threw. Where did you end up mounting the foot switch on the platform? All the way forward?
