    Operator Controlled Discharge Chute. It's a device invented and patented by Dixie Chopper that allows the operator of a mower to open and close a cover over the mower deck discharge so as to control the discharge of grass clippings from a deck.

    Kinda, with a blade blocker you usually have to get off the mower to remove it. With an OCDC you can open and close it from the operator's position.

    John Deere has the same set up on their new "Mulch on demand" mower decks. You can work it while seated.

    Ohhhh ok well on a Wb what I always do is remove the spring that holds it down...

    Granted you have to step off the velke but now you can flip it up on the deck with your hand and it stays there (thou a good bump might reset it), I do this all the time, finally we understand each other, yes that is very cool to be able to control the chute and I can see on a Z why you wouldn't want to unmount every time, thou how about a rope with handle LOL ?!
