    Does anyone run the Accelerator Catcher on an Exmark Lazer Hp?

    I don't but a lco in my town does. He complained to me once about having to stop and dump it so often.

    I've been wondering if they make one that will fit my Kees. I know most folks run those big-daddy catchers on Z's, but very rarely would I ever use one. The side catcher would be a nice convenience more or less to have around for that oddball occasion. Plus if would be simple to throw on if needed.

    I use an accelerator XL for my three Lazers 60 and 48 inch. The same catcher also works on my Great Dane WB.
    Easy on and off.

    Envy Lawn,
    The kees mower will take the exact same Accelerator catcher as the Exmark (GCEX or GCEXXL). You just have to drill a 5/8 hole in the "lip" that runs along the top edge of the discharge (the Exmark already has a hole here).

    You can trim better with the accelerator bagger then with the ultravac. It is nice to take on and off and use on other mowers you have TOO.

    Mounted on a 60", I know it depends on how thick/tall of grass your cutting, but how much of an area on the average can you get cut, untill its pack full?
    This could be tough to answer:)

    The taller the grass the less area you can do before dumping. But if you cut first then bag you could do more. I use the bagger and extention for quick bagging after spring and before fall. If i need extra space i put on the jrco trasporter and tub and get another 8 Bushles worth of space.
