    Ok i am probably going to purchase a toro 60 in ztr and am going to need a bagger. I would really like to get the DFS (dump from seat clamshell style) but am wondering if any of you guys use an accelerator on your big z's. I am most worried about it getting heavy and holding the discharge side of the deck down resulting in a scalp. Does this happen or am i imagining things. It would just be nice to buy a 400 dollar catcher instead of a 2000+ dollar catcher. Thanks in advance for your input in advance guys!!!

    The down fall to having a Accelarator on a 60 is you will be very wide and it will be in the way on alot of accts I had one on a 60 Dixie and it worked good but it was constantly in the way

    I have used one on 61" and 52" Standers for years.......no problems with scalping.......or otherwise....... they do fill up pretty fast.

    Thanks guys, you were helpful!!! I have always run walkers/navigators so i have never had to worry about a bagger on a Z.
