    Finally got the digital camera...here it is. Haven't sandblasted and painted yet, but you get the idea. Knee operated.

    Did you use the mulching plate to make that??? I am interested in making one for mine! It would be great for long strips that I handle at a mall.....any info you can pass on it is appreciated!

    Well...I did use the mulching plate, but only because I got impatient.

    I decided to start this one weekend and rather than go buy some raw metal, I started using things I had laying around when I started. So I smashed my mulching plate out flat and welded some flatbar to it for the hinges.

    I'd suggest going out and buying some 7 ga. or 10 ga. sheet for that part. It's gotta cost less than starting with a 40 buck mulching plate.

    That setup looks like it will do the trick. Also ,I think it would need the holes drilled in it like the ones on the Dixie Chopper to have the air-flow it needs.

    Nice job!

    The air holes aren't needed. They clog up very quickly with what ever it is you are cutting anyway. Been there, done that!

    Mark, got about 80 hrs for a little over 1 season.

    Hope the rain today gets that grass growin' and helps out your business!

    Can you explain what that contraption is, and what it does. I've seen posts regarding OCDC, but I don't have a clue
    Thanks, Bill.

    craig--it is an OPERATOR CONTROLED DISCHARGE CHUTE. real handy when you want to side discharge but wantto stop the clippings from blowing out for a short while. go to ericelm's web site for more info.

    Way to use that noggin! Looks like your gonna be a whole lot safer this season. I wouldn't worry about drilling holes, they are designed to clog up anyway--which they do rather quickly. I just put the mulching plate back on my Scag but left the Trac-Vac unit in place! Looks like I'm bagging but I'm not! How bout coming up with a way for me to convert to bagging real easy? I thought about drilling holes in mine so it would still bag when I wanted it to or just mulch when bagging was not needed. I think it would starve the engine on the unit for air if I did that though. Oh well, I figured while you were being creative you could fix mine too!
