    I need a chute blocker for my 61" scag. Anyone got any thoughts. I need one that will bolt on and I do't have drill any holes. Thanks Alex

    Sorry, but ours you do have to drill two small holes is all. I don't recall any existing holes in the Scag deck that any OCDC would be able to use. But, I may be wrong.

    Take care..Norm

    Could be wrong but unless you plan on using duct tape or magnets you will probably have to drill some holes.

    How easy is this system to remove? I need to put bagger on and off. Also is there a manual one out there? Thanks

    awagner, what deck do you have? Is it a rider or walkbehind? I plan on making one for my turf tigers and walkbehinds soon.

    I got a Scag and need one also.....the one that Scag has available only uses two bolts. These companies just don't want to provide a simple one that slides in/out manually and that is what I am going to have the dealer make for me next winter. Just take the scag blocker and do some engineering on it.

    Mower companies need to design their own chute blockers. One that can be used, and removed, in the field, if you need to use a catcher. Tired of carrying an electric impact wrench to change from one to the other.
