Where can i get a grass catcher for a 36" exmark walk behind? I know some will say accelorater, but, i looked at that, and i think $400 bucks for a catcher is ridiculous. i seem to remember buying one about 10 years ago on my old lesco 32 for around $100. Any suggestions?

The ones through JThomas are just like the factory baggers. These work very well for what they are intended for. If you are cosidering for doing large amounts of leaves though,...forget it. There are much more efficient methods for doing this.

Any suggestions? It may seem like a lot of money now, but you won't have to replace them due to rust. The are a whole h*ll of a lot lighter than steel catchers, you have no bracket mounting with eXmarks and Accelerators are easier to dump. The 4.15cuft model is larger than a standard GG. They ARE worth their price!

I bought a Grass Gobbler catcher from my dealer. $189.00 It does the job, a little bad on dust, but gets her done. The Accelerator will be my next brand of catchers for sure. There aluminum, less weight, and you can get a huge one.

I bought a Grass Gobbler for my 36" Exmark Viking eleven years ago. It has a couple of places where rust has started to take its toll. But, nothing has ever been done to maintain it, and it is outside all the time. It has been used heavily most seasons, so I would consider it a very good value for the money. As noted in so many other places, these steel catchers are heavy. I have a cloth one too, used with the backing plate. But, it has been used only sparingly, not in the past few years. The Gobbler is heavier, but the bracket stays on the mower deck, and mounting/dismounting is easy. The cloth bagger has two pieces to manage, and having to deal with the backing plate on loading/unloading is a hassle -- tradeoff is heavier catcher.

Check this one out, verify the inlet opening size to your mower. I think you would have to weld a piece on to close the opening a bit, and add a mounting bracket but thats an easy fix. And at 6.2 cu. ft. the price is 40% off from accelerator. I just got one from this guy for my 36" TTHP and it works well.
Just a thought!
