    what you all think about the grass or leaf catcher from accelerator industries?
    is it better than the ultravac for exmark rider?
    i call the dealer in my city $389 for the 4.15cf and $539 for the 6.2cf.
    I dont know how much is the ultravac for a 46inch exmark triton but the accelerator bag seems very convenient.

    I can only get mine half full before nothing else will go in.

    Can't go wrong with the Accelerator units. They may seem a little pricey, but the are strong, light and easy to use. Had one for two years and love it. I'm getting the extention for mine to help with the leaves.

    but any bag like that is gonna fill up real quick on a z. I'd go with the ultra vac. Anyone who tried to go that route to save rather than paying the money for the ultravac regretted it.

    I think exmark is doing a 12 month no pay defered interest right now so you'll have a year to pay for it.

    Would you say the same (ultra vac, rather than accelerator) if the bagger is to be used a couple of times per week, usually on different days of the week. And, what about the additional trailer space needed for a mounted bagger? A hang-on bagger can be stashed on the trailer, away from the mower. But, a mounted bagger needs to have its own space behind the ZTR, right?

    TTPRODR, I think with the 6.2cf and an extender you'll be better off than with a full blown Ultra Vac. Dont get me wrong, I have nothing against having an Ultra Vac, but if you can save a few $$ then go the least expensive way.

    how much the ultravac runs from?
    under $600 I can get the accelerator 6.2cf so I imagine it might be close to a grand for the ultravac.
    im getting lots 1 and 2 acres lots calls for fall clean up and aint funny to blow,rack n' bag.


    anyone know where online the accelerator can be bought?

    TT, The full size Ultra Vac's go for 2K+, so the little Vac's are over 1K. The Accelerators can't be bought online, visit Accelerator's website and do a dealer search I'm sure you have one in your area.
