I am purchasing a J/D 657 54" stander. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on the size of catcher I should get. I live in MN so there is plenty of leaf cleanup to do in the fall. I would like to get the 6.2 cu ft with the xl extender but is this too much weight especially with leaves? All opinions appreciated. Thanks:waving:

I am also considering this mower, (it is between this and a 717). Can anyone say how much the bagger is?

List prices on the catchers are $359.00 for the standard size and $499.00 for the Jumbo.

If the leaves are dry there should be no problem and the extra room is to die for:clapping:
