A while back, someone posted a thread about changing the pulley sizes on their spindles to increase blade speed. Technical issues aside, the general consensus was that if there was an accident, and the attorneys found out that someone modified their mower that way (beyond OSHA standards), it would result in even more liability. So, I was wondering if youre using an Operator Controlled Discharge (OCD), would that expose you to more liability in the event of an accident? Like an accident such as throwing a rock and putting someones eye out, etc. Would an Insurance Company claim that you modified your mower to the point of being unsafe, and thereby deny a claim? Surely it would make you more liable if its a homemade OCD. But what if you installed an after-market OCD?
