    I was wondering if Hustler was going to design something like the qwick chute for the super z's? I need a qwick chute but I was holding off to see if Hustler designs something in its place.

    We have done some work in this area, whether we will ever put it on a production mower, I am not sure.
    Your best bet is to buy a aftermarket unit at this time.

    Does hustler have a suggestion then? There's a boat load of them on the market. Every one seems to be slightly different in design and complexity. Hard to say which versions work best really.

    I cant really suggest anything in this area, there are several out there some of which I am sure are good.
    Any removal or modification to the stock discharge chute is not recommended by Hustler.

    That's true. I can see that from a liability stand point. Fair enough....

    The company lawyers said, "Don't you dare put one of those suckers on our mowers." Qwik? Chute works well.
