Looking at getting one for my Scag WB to pick up leaves mainly on a few small properties? How well do they hold up for occasional use?

Rack em makes a good bagger for the money.

yeah I got a brand new, "used" for 150. Haven't got to use it much but they look well built for the money. They look a lot like the "grass gobbler" so if you used those, the rack em is pretty much built the same way.

I have one for my Scag VRide and its a solid product but even when its empty it is SOOO heavy and thats the only down fall for me and the guys. Otherwise its a great bagger and holds together

That's something else I was wondering how much they weigh empty? I couldn't find it on their website.

Well I got mine in yesterday. First off it's not near as heavy as I thought it would be, I was really surprised. It was very easy to install, it took me maybe 15 minutes start to finish. It fits my discharge opening perfectly too. I didn't get to use it yet because of rain today, but I did pick up a few leaves with it in my own yard between showers and it cleaned them up very well. I think it is going to work for what I want. And it looks like it is built well and will hold up.

How much did that go for? I want a accelerator, but will not get enough use to justify the higher price.

If I would've known about your brand I would've looked at it. Bigger is better as they say.

Never had that brand. I did have a metal one before. Unfortunately it was rusted in 2 years. Just the solid sheet metal. The frame and the screen were still good so I just redid the sheet metal with galvanized. Just sold it while while back. It still worked good. Do your self a favor and hose it out often.
After 9 years today, I just ordered a new Accelerator. My old one well, it's had it. Yes they are pricy but, 9 years isn't bad. 70.00 a year is worth it and now I have some spare parts or some good scrap.

I Have a exmark viking with the trivantage deck. I have removed the deflector shield and have a OCDC mounted on the pivot points. Can any of the catchers fit with my OCDC and allow me to go back and forth easily?

ive yet to find an ocdc that will flip up and allow you to run a side catcher. I thought I had it figured out but still no dice in my search. I run the rackem baggers on my scags. had to weld a little reinforcement on one of them but other than that no problems. they also make a 4 cube extension, well another company does. on ebay, but they fit. I plan to get one of them too.

I have a 54" Hustler Trimstar with the qwick chute OCDC and also an accelerator bagger on it. They fit well together.
