    I am going to break down and get an OCDC. Has anyone used the qwikchute and the director? Which one did you like better? Comments on both units appreciated. This is for a 60" Lazer.

    I like the Qwikchute on my Hustler Z. It is simple to bolt on. Simple to use.
    Mechanical operation....NO electrics to wear out or to wire up.
    Easy installation.

    239. tax and shipping included.

    Couldn't MasterChute make one without a motor? I can't see spending $350.00-400.00 just to use my foot or fingers. Seems to me LOTS of them would sell if they were cheaper, a manualy operated one.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    We do in fact build manual ones, too, we just don't have them listed on our website and have chosen not to promote them right now.

    The reason why we like the automated are:
    1.) It's faster
    2.) It's more convienient
    3.) It's gets used more, making it easy for operators to do a beautiful job.
    4.) It keeps the opertors hands on the controls at all times.

    We think of it like:
    crank windows vs. electric.
    belt drive vs. hydro.
    spade vs. gas edger.

    I installed a Director on my Exmark LZHP and love it. I haven't used any others, so I can't comment on them. I just know that I would never be without an OCDC, and the Director is well built and works very well......simple and sturdy design.

    Do they make The Director for walk behinds. I am looking for one for an Exmark TurfTracer HP 48. What is their web address if they have one?
