HI
THERE WILL BO NO PROBLEM, I CUT 2 OF MINE OFF SEVERAL YEARS AGO FOR THE SAME REASON, SEEMED LIKE THE TREES WERE ALWAYS COMING UP ON THE RIGHT SIDE, SO NEED TO GET CLOSER CALLED FOR SOME CUTTING, CUT ABOUT 2" OUT FROM THE SKID, THIS IS HARD TO EXPLAIN BUT I LEFT A 2" FLAP STICKING OUT ON THE FRONT SIDE, HEATED & FOLDED BACK TO WELD THE SEAM AT THE TOP TO HELP REINFORCE THAT FRONT CORNER OF THE DECK THAT WILL HIT THINGS.
GOOD LUCK
JIMMY

yesterday i cut the chute off the deck . first vultured another deck brace/skid off a parts deck and welded that to the existing one ,essentially making a 2" wide deck brace/skid , then using that as a guide cut the chute off flush , with a 6" cut off wheel . really turned out nice and the extra brace/skid provides strength and protection . wish i knew how to post a picture i'm not very good at describing things . thanks jimmy for your information , more than likely wish i had done this years ago > tim
