fixing door

Hi Randall,

Sorry I did not post here sooner- been busy with the holiday! At any rate, your door is probably "cocked" a bit, due to an impact on the catcher somewhere. When you try to shut the door, it probably is hitting one side or the other of the frame. Just open the door about 2 inches (at the base), stick a bar or some sort into the side that is too far over, and give it a good yank towards the center of the door. This will bring it back into alignment. If the problem is at the base, take the door off and use the handle end of a steel hammer to give one sharp rap to the bottom of the frame (this will bend it down just a bit). Give us a call if you need any other help.

Thanks Lou. Our company's goal is to make the very best catcher we possibly can. It costs a few extra bucks, but there is always a market for quality, even in tough times. Call us directly if you have any problems or questions.

For one man shows - the accelerator hands down. We run multiple crews w/ many operators. Grass gobblers last forever (many years) and if need to be welded, not too difficult. Accelerators - welds don't hold up as well (especially on door), they tend to get stress cracks more - require a special welder (we don't have and neither does our dealer). Cost difference gg jumbo around $220, accelerator around $420. After 2 years, 1 accelerator dead beyond repair and second one in poor shape. My gobblers have always held up better, but are definately much heavier. I love the handle and door design of the accelerator as compared to gobbler. GG has re-designed door closure & there are no more corners that collect debris that constantly need cleaning. I've been using walk-behinds since the late80's and thats my $.02
Thanx
Bob

I have looked into the accelorator catchers. I really want one they seem very strong for what i do as being an owner operator. But I used to work at an aluminum shop and atleast 1-3 times a week a local bigger landscaper was there getting the bagger re welded or repaired in some way. I recently bought a 36 toro proline and it came with a grass gobbler catcher and I have to say I am very pleased with it. It seems to be very strong and well built. I like the full open door to empty the catcher also. Just my opinion but from the price difference I think I am going to be staying with the Grass Gobbler.
