Paul,
Thanks for the nice remarks. Since you purchased a catcher a couple of years ago we have added some gussets around the door area. Also, the door is now made from one piece of angle bar that is slotted, heated and bent, then the slot is welded. Every year we try to upgrade the catcher a bit, so any input as to where they could be improved on is welcome.

I just reread my post. Sorry for all the typos. I try to do better than that.

I do think that the accelerator is the best cather of it's type. You can mow a lot farther with one than with the same size of cloth bag. '
Peter. have you thought about making bags to replace the cloth ones used on rear bagging ZTR's?

Paul,
I have thought about that. I'm not sure there would be a market for these at the type of prices we would have to charge. It is hard to get the price down to a good point on something when the base materials cost so much. It would not be much less expensive to make the baskets for the rear collectors than to make the side catchers, so the chance of getting them to a price point where people might be interested (and still make some money doing it) is low. Especially since Aluminum has rocketed up in price a good 30 percent this year.
