    I've got power chute and love it 140hrs no issue. grass flap is the other I'd recommend. foot operated ocdc is the only way to go. I've used advance chute and quick chute before but after using power chute I'll never be able to go back to hand operated one

    140 Hours is a joke for the Power Chute. Got about 420 hours on the current motor, about 1,500 hours on the current foot peddle an about 2100 hours on everything else. :eek:

    I have the grass flaps on all of my machines. If you own a 7 iron pro or a velocity deck and you run over a rock or something and it shoots put you can kill somebody. I had 1 rock i hit 5 or 6 years ago leave a hole in somebody's foundation on their house. It traveled into their basement and we had to pay to replace the hole. But yeah if you own a powerful zero turn like i do you need one

    If mine will last 3-400 hrs I'll be happy to pay the $50 to replace it. Thing is unreal around flower beds, cars roads etc

    I'm running a grass-flap on a 61" Scag Vride. Very happy. We don't bag, so it is a huge time saver.
