For leaves very good. Make sure you get the extender.

Get the Accelerator. You'll love it! Goes right on the mower. No installation at all. I just bought one for my 36" exmark viking. Works great.

I use Emark's side catcher on my 48" w/B and it works just fine.

Thanks to everybody for the good info. I went ahead and ordered the Accelerator and the leaf extender. I figure I will get plenty of use out of it this fall for leaves and next spring for lawn cleanup.

Dont forget the jrcoinc.com Transporter and tub. It gives you extra capacity for leaves or grass BUT when your not using it you can keep your beer on ice .

Do the baggers ever put extra weight on the mowers causing them to cut un-even?

They don't weigh enough to cause it. I have on on my Metro and it ain't no problem.

we dont pick up leaves too labor intensive. we use a mulch kit and break them up into dust. avg lawn caked with leaves is 30 minutes cut trimmed edged blow out and leaves gone, looks like its been cut in june.

I use the Accelerator with leaf extender and am very satisfied with the performance. If the leaves are wet it can make my Metro cut slightly uneven (lower on discharge side). But after you empty it a few times you decide not to let it get as full when leaves are wet (the extra weight taxes you), and the uneven cut problem is solved.

Never had a problem when the leaf extender is not being used.

Cool. I went ahead and ordered one. It was 530 with shipping directly from the man.
