“Best Buy” Mower Chute Blocker
Richard Streib, Fuquay-Varina N.C.: “I found a great mower chute blocker for my Deere garden tractor called the Green Guard. I bought it from the inventor Jeremiah Richards, co-owner of Green Boys lawn care in Topeka, Kan. It was affordable, easy to mount, and works great (www.the-green-guard.com; ph 785-249-5476),” says Streib.
The Green Guard works on most mower decks. A motorized rubber guard opens and closes over the opening and can be trimmed as needed for an exact fit. The guard is operated from a convenient handle-mounted toggle switch. The switch is set up to be handle-mounted on a zero-turn or walk-behind mower. Streib made his own pvc mounting bracket on his Deere garden tractor just ahead of the steering wheel.
The guard can be adjusted to different positions while mowing, saving the time of shutting off blades for manual adjustments. This allows for continued mowing in different conditions such as wet to dry grass or along mulch and flower beds.
The Green Guard comes with a one-year warranty and is available starting at $239 with free shipping.
