    You can now see Power Chutes in action on our website. We now have four streaming videos on the website with more to come in the near future. Just remember that the 'model' Power Chute used in the video is a working unit that has seen better days as far as appearance.

    Actually I made final patterns for both Toro AND Scag mowers this morning. I'm going to start the CAD work tomorrow with hopes of taking final products back to the dealer for testing and pictures next week. So I am hoping to have models available for both Toro Turboforce & Scag Velocity Plus decks by next weekend.

    I can see the benefit with that device, it would have to be removed for the bagger.

    That's true, but we have several on mowers with baggers. When the bagger is used it only takes the removal of two bolts and the Power Chute is completely off of the mower.

    Since OEM chutes are safety devices, are there any legal concerns regarding modifying a mower with your product? Lets say a stone is thrown and someones eye is poked out in Red Rider fashion. Would a lawyer have a field day with your product installed, saying it was a non-OEM modification of a safety device?

    Any plans on making the power chute for bobcat mowers?

    So according to these videos, there is no variable on the chte being open or closed to control or direct. This is a MAJOR asset in doing cleanups - amongst other things.
