Walk behind grass catcher that sits on the deck

I saw a walk-behind mower with a grass catcher that looked like a garbage can on its side sitting on the deck.

Anybody know who makes this? Or how well it works?

Thanks

I've seen track vacs or ultra vacs on walk behinds, I think that's what there called. But the cans stand vertical. We bag all of our grass and use the fabric ex mark chute bags, pain in the rear, especially when it's wet out. I would assume it works fairly well as they have an impeller that runs off a belt connected to a blade pulley to further accelerate the clippings through the tube into the barrel. But could still see clogging in wet conditions. That's about all I know about them

I'm familiar with the trac-vac and really like the one we have. This appears to just be a catcher that sits on the deck of the walk-behind (horizontally not vertically like the trac-vac).
