I just wanted to pass on some information regarding the Director OCDC from York Sheet Metal. I installed one on my Lazer Z HP, 48" deck last week, and I am totally impressed with the time it is saving me. In tight areas around beds, or when discharge would normally go over paved areas, I simply close the OCDC and virtually eliminate a lot of the blowing and clean-up I would normally have to do. In a lot of cases The "half open" position is great for those times when you are mowing grass that has gotten too high between mowings (seeing a lot of that with all the rain we've had!). In this situation I will often discharge to the center of the lawn to avoid discharging heavy clippings over the area already mowed. I use to still have problems when I got down to the last 8' or so of unmowed area where you would be discharging over the uncut grass into the cut area on the other side. Now I can direct clipping where I want them, and with just a couple passes can disperse the accumulated clippings and make them dissappear. There were several threads on here a few months ago from folks looking for the Director for the 48" LZHP deck. It is now available from York Sheet metal, and I would strongly recommend it. I am going to take some pictures and post them for anyone interested.
