GrassGobbler. I have one on my 32" metro. I love it. Get the real deal. The other metal catchers just don't hold up to the original.

I also have the eXmark cloth catcher. Also work very well. I am selling the cloth catcher $110. It has some rips in it, but works just fine. The mounting plate was killing me on one property, because it keep if from fitting through the gate. So I replaced it with the gobbler. Other wise I would still be using it.

An operator to walk-behind it.

2nd best option is two-wheel velkie.

sulky and a accelerator grass catcher.. Much better than the gobbler in my opinion... its very light to, I have the 6.15 Xl catcher and full of grass its easy to remove and dump.... Couldnt imagine anything smaller I would be stopping to often.

Should have Got the TracerHP....Depending on the Size of your Props You May be back to using that 21" Sooner than You think.

Now, where do you buy these grass catchers? Do they have to be made for your specific model?

s and s mowing:
When you purchase and if you purchase a sulky, don't make the mistake I did and get a one wheel one if you care about your stripes, it destroys them. Get the proslide, it makes them alot nicer.

the company sponsors this forum. I got mine from lesco. and a sulky is important. If yo have a H/D get a casting sulky.

IMO the velky brand sulkies are the only wat to go. they are the only ones i have seen that the platform will rotate 360deg, and not kacknife when you back up

Don't know about a bagger as I put a mulch kit on mine the second week I had it and and have been happy with it. Since it is the metro backing up is basically you pulling it back with a little assitance from the machine. For this reason I would put a proslide on it. Step off the platform and it folds out of your way. Other than that an hour meter would be nice.
