Does any one run the Accelerator catcher? What is the cost and durability? Are the brackets strong? Is this catcher inteneded to bag grass or just leaves?

I have been asking a very good employee for information about any variable about the job that makes it physicaly demanding. He stated several things one of which is that lifting the full grass gobblers with the extentions all day can add additional fatigue that might be avoided in some way. I was thinking that the all aluminum Accelerator has a far lighter empty weight when compared to the gobbler with its extention while empty.

Any experinces or knowledge?

contact capt devo here on lawn site and get the accerator delivered to your door for $410.00. You will not be disapointed.

Keep in mind that the smaller Accellerator will require more trips to dump. The Grass Gobbler with extension holds 8.9 cu ft.

Wright also has the Turbo 10 Grass Gobbler that holds 10.8 cu ft. It comes apart in 2 pieces so the lifted weight isn't as great. Slight mods would be required to Exmark and Gravely mowers but the setup is very close the way they come. I think I will start a new thread about the Turbo 10.

I love my accelerator bagger on the exmark walk behind

The Accelerator is 4 times the bagger at 1.5 times the price. No comparason.
