I had demoed the Deere 777 in early fall of this year. I really liked it alot. I was convinced if I could put the 7iron deck under the Super Z that would be the stuff. When I asked the dealer about an OCDC he said Deere was coming out with something and he couldnt really get into it. This was before Meg Mo was advertising their closure. Anyway, I stopped by the dealer today and they had one of the only 400 made versions of the deck under the 757. It is a mulch on demand deck only being used on the 757 for trial purposes. It has a lever like than of a OCDC but it not only closes off the chute, it baffles each blade at the same time just like a mulching kit installed. With a push of the lever its back to side discharging. If this thing works I may make room for one if and when they make it to the 777. Just though I'd share the info. Oh yea, it's about a 1000.00 option, but wont be mass produced untill the end of 2005.
