Hustler 48" WB OCDC wanted

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.

Brian,

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.
