    I have a 48" exmark metro(04) and I was thinking of getting an Accelerator catcher for it....and I have a couple of questions...

    1. Does it require a bracket to mount the catcher?
    2. If so, is a difficult job?
    3. Will I need to remove my ezchute?

    thanks in advance for your responses........ (and before you tell me to contact accelerator industries...they are on vacation until 8/11)

    No, you do not need any brackets. Just make sure to order the correct cather for your model. The Accelerator has a pin that sticks in a hole around the discharge. The catcher then pivots downard and hooks onto the top of the descharge chute. Very easy to put on and take off. Also very light.

    You will probably have to remove ez chute. You may be able to modify it somehow.

    I am very satisfied with Accelerator products and support.
