    I did the search already so don't ask.
    Heres what I am looking for.

    an OCDC that will fit a hustler 48" walkbehind
    that does not have to be removed to attach my accelerator bagger. I would like it to mount where the discharge chute mounts.
    The best design I have found was the ezchute but ezchute.com doesn't work and I don't know how to reach them to see if they can fit this mower.
    Masterchute doesn't have one for this mower and is more $$ than I have to spend on it right now.
    quikchute doesn't have anything for walkbehinds
    trimmer traps I don't think will work with my bagger.
    the director I just went a request for info to but I am not sure that the linkage would work for a walkbehind.

    I was planning on making my own but the winter is running out on me.

    any help is appreciated

    hey paul.....

    your brother got a welder?

    Bring that puppy up here ......we could have something worked out on a weekend.

    I've got access to what you would need, but it's all out in Lesterville.

    I need to make another on for one of my JD

    Just a thought.......GL

    I think that electric one will work. Or you can make one very easily.

    I'll probably have it there this spring to cleanup my parents lawn. If I don't have something by then, I'll let you know.

    I am thinking of just modifying the factory chute.

    If you use a spring to keep it open and that same spring to keep it closed then all you need is a bolt and a nut to keep it open just a bit.
    Then use a rope to open and close. you can use your original chute.
