    Peter,

    When did you go to a solid bottom on your catchers?

    We went to a solid bottom for the 2011 model year. Of course our distributors and dealers have inventory of various units, so the newer ones get added to the system as the older ones get sold. We do in-line improvements almost every year.

    We don't have any scratch and dent extenders right now, sorry to say.

    As far a side-mounted catchers go Accelerator is definitely top notch, but I much prefer my rear bagger. I don't have the option of putting an extender on mine though since it's an older model with the door welded on.

    I'll also add that it's a great catcher. I have one for my 36" WB. The blades definitely make a difference on how tight you can pack it. I only use mine in the spring for scalping, then in the fall for leaves. The rest of the year I mulch everything.

    Hi Peter, Is there any way we can get them down under to Australia for a reasonable shipping price? Need one for a 54in Hustler with vx4 deck
