I have the standard catcher for the Exmark TTHP, could you post a picture of the dust covers you make for this bag as well as suggested retail price.

Thanks, Tom

Tom,
I don't have any recent pics on my home computer. I'll take a few new ones monday when I am back in the shop and post them here. Suggested retail is 59.95 for the 4 piece kit.

Here are some pictures of a dust cover (part # GCDust) on a 4.15 standard Accelerator catcher.

Thanks Peter,
That looks real neat. A couple of questions. Is it easy and fast to install and remove? Is the back gate covered also and if so where does the air escape? Does it still bag well installed, I know when things are dusty it means they are dry but in the spring I do short mows when the grass is dormant and sometimes very thick. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks again.

Tom

Tom,
Thanks for the compliment! The dust cover is not too hard to take on and off. I don't think you would want to do it between each lawn, but if you are putting it on and off a couple of times per season it is not bad. It attaches with small # 8 pointed screws that thread into the bag perforations. They are quite short, so they don't take too many turns of a philips head screwdriver to insert or remove. The material in the cover is very similar to that in a cloth bagger, so it lets air through. The airflow will be less than you get without the cover, but will still be comparable to what you get with a cloth bagger. There are 4 sections to the cover, including one for the back door (none for the bottom, of course). You don't have to use all of them if you don't want too. I would suggest experimenting around to see what works best with your conditions. I tried to select the best fabric for this application to allow for adequate airflow yet keep the dust down. Hopefully it will work well for you.

PS-
You don't have to use the number of screws you see in the picture. Half as many would be adequate.
