Accelerator on a Lastec?

In the spring I may be purchasing a 73" Lastec and I may also be upgrading from Grass/Leaf Gobblers to the XL. Lastec is not one of the manufacturers you have listed on your site so I'm wondering what I can do to get one and make it work.

Send me a picture of the opening area on this mower, along with the length and width. As long as the opening is not too irregular, we can manufacture a fitting for it so you can use our catcher.

Peter,

Thanks for getting back with me. Since I don't own a Lastec yet I can't provide you with any measurements of the opening. However, I attached a few pictures that should give you a great view of the discharge side. From what I see it looks to be a very easy deck to put a bracket on.

Can you get a picture from the side with the deflector raised?

This is all I could find from my library of Lastec pics. Let me know if you still need a better shot and I will try to come up with something.

We can do a catcher for that opening. The only issue is the deflector assembly on top of the deck. The bracket would need to be notched correctly to fit around the small tubes that the deflector fits in, so I would need you to send more detailed pics with a few measurements.
Give us a call if you want to go ahead.

Since I don't have a local dealer for Lastec, if I end up buying one in the spring I will get back in touch with you then with measurements and better pictures. Thank you for your help thus far.
