I have been looking around and doing searches on chute blockers and OCDCs for walkbehinds and have not really liked anything Ive seen. So I decided to fabricate my own. I came up with a very good design that is completely different than anything else out there. I was going to post a pic of it, but a couple friends told me I should try to patent it, since it is so different. Mine is on a turf tracer, but it would work on every other type of WB, it wouldnt work on a ZTR though. It is manual(non powered)and stays very close to the mower meaning it wont get caught up on anything while mowing. Has anyone ever tried to get a patent on something they made and/or tried to sell it? Ive seen those cheap inventors commercials but they look kinda shady, so I dont want to go that route. I spent alot of time searching the internet and different lawn sites, and I never saw anything even close to my desgin. Any thoughts on how to go about this?
