Leaf collection for Grandstand?

I have checked out some of the previous threads on this, however they are a bit dated. So...are there any new leaf collection options on the market for the Toro Grandstands? I realize you can slap a grass gobbler/bagger on the side, something better would be ideal. Thanks!

Accelerator aluminum catchers are quite a bit lighter...which can make a BIG diff with each emptying.

So, I guess Toro was full of it when they said they would come out with something 4 years ago. Oh well.

Protero has a vac system that can be mounted on the grandstand. Aside from their vac and a regular catcher, there arent many other options I am aware of. Its actually the reason I am getting rid of my grandstand. Im ahppy with my machine but I need something with a big vac system.
