Tiller Flap & Deck Discharge Chute Deflector

Recommended Posts

Roy
Pictures are of the tiller flap I made for the tiller on my 725. Haven't tried it yet but expect it to work OK. Wish I had made it a little longer. Note the matching color of the red silicone rubber. Borrowed the idea from MPH but used rubber instead of steel. Tiller flap:




Next pictures are of the mower deck flexible discharge chute deflector I made. The color match isn't as good as the faded tiller color. Chute deflector:

"Where'd you get that nice color rubber?" The plant I retired from was going to trash a partial roll of the rubber. I had them trash it in the back of my truck. :) Unfortunately the red silicon rubber is not as flexible as standard Neoprene so I don't expect the mower chute deflector to last 8 years like the original one I made. The red rubber should last fine as a tiller deflector. A metal, serrated deflector, ala Troy Built, would be nice. Used what I had for materials. Thanks all for the kind words.

Good idea! I've nicked alot of my tress. My discharge is on the right. I wonder if you could attach a piece to the left side somehow without drilling? Not only protect the trees and things but the paint and metal. Of course it would have to look good too.
