    I picked up a new MT26 today and love it! I have a couple lawns where I will not collect and I **** grass in the wood fence. I am thinking about picking up the no catch deflector, but I have a question. Does it fold up for storage? I would not like to have another bulky item to have on the truck. Please provide as much detail as possible if you reply. Thanks!

    Why not just open the back up and let it fly? That's what I do.

    I did, but it shouts into the fence rails at one house even after bordering twice and also gets all over the place on a couple others. I have two others that I can leave it open at.

    That deflector breaks down rear nice but.....you will need to modify it to get it grass to go down. With the stock deflector I was throwing grass on the trim guys so I just wired about a 12 wide flap on it. I just opened my rear door a little bit to let grass slide out until I got the deflector.

    What do you mean by stock deflector? I did not get one with my unit. Also, can you explain how you made the 12" deflector? Pics maybe?

    Any Pictures on your modification?
    Been looking at getting one of these deflectors, instead of leaving the door wide open & shooting it EVERYWHERE!
