Catching system

Presently run a 52'' Lesco Z 2 with a Peco catching system. Main issue is hopper being mounted high and taking out tree branches and not being able to get close to trees, leaves extra trim work or even walkbehind cutting. Any good suggestion on a rear mounted catching system.

The trac-vac is just as high BUT it not as wide. Did you look into a side bagger??
Accelerators bagger has an extension that makes it a total of 9 bushels. It is lower and can fit a walk behind too if they are the same make( but check with peter for fit)

John when that thing is full does it tend to drag the bag side down at all? Just curious.

No it wont tip over but it will dig if you go over bumpy lawns fast. In the pic you see the bagger is very full and it has high moister grass. I dont have the pick with it full and i have it apart but you can see by the pic on the trim side that it looks lighter then the bag side.

These are pics that i have from testing the bagger and how i know when its full.

I like to use the side bagger in summer and for fall, when the leaves are deep i use the ultravac and put the accelerator on a walk and suck up alot of leaves where the rider wont go.
