    I had an ezchute on a Bobcat and now have one on a 2006 lazerz. The thing I like about the ezchute is you can open and close it while you are cutting. The handle comes up to the armrest so you don't need to stop or reach way out to get the handle. You really just mow as normal and raise and lower as you go. The lazer steering controls come together and almost touch so it is easy to steer with your left and on both levers while you control the ezchute with your right hand. I never used any of the others, but I did look at the others before I bought the ezchute for the lazer. It looked to me like you could not operate the others while you mow without stopping or at least slowing down to reach out.

    I went to the sheetmetal shop I used to work in and fabbed up a pair of them (one as a backup in case one gets left at home) out of .22 ga galvnized that is actually doubled up with a triple edged hem on the edges and it bolts on.
    Cost me a gradn total of $5, I always pay the guy at least a few bucks for using his brake and any scrap stuff here and there.

    Riiiiiight............ Nothing like speaking about your company in a way that makes it looks like it's not yours, to try to get business.

    Trimmer Trap's Blade Blocker works great, but I think on a ZTR the Qwikchute looks like the way to go.

    I got this reply from EZ Chute for the Exmark 36" TTHP with the hydro in regards to whether they had a kit for it or not:

    "Our 48hp model will "fit" the 36HP TT. The 48HP ezchute plate fits on
    the 36HP discharge opening, the problem is, the control rod and control
    rod bracket would need to be modified or the control rod would need
    modified. The reason is because of the location of the hydro tank. (I
    assume you have the hydro version and not the belt drive). We have had a
    few customers who have bought the 48hp and modified and it works fine. To
    date we have not developed a conversion kit."


    So, that sounds like it will work with some tinkering on the 36".

    I may have to look into that soon.

    If you are talking to me seriously I do not work there, I did a few years ago before I went to work for the state.

    Power Chute hands down is the best for me. I own two.
