    Does anyone have a Accelerator grass catcher mounted on a zero turn? How does this work? Does it leave a nice yard? Any problems with the weight on one side of the deck, when it's nearly full. Ever run in to anything with it sticking out on the one side?

    You did not say what brand of mower you have,but i believe I would go with what matches my mower..........however I would say anytime you hang something on the side you increase your chances of hitting somethin

    :blob3: Jake, yes i use them on a 44" lazer HP and a 52" bobcat they work great i needed no extra brackets they just slip right on. in the spring when the lawns are nuts i cut the lawn at 4" then drop down to 3.5" and throw the cathcer on and it does wonders. Tony

    I used one on a Great Dane Super Surfer and I was impressed how it bagged in the pouring rain! I had no trouble as far as hitting anything with it! You have to remember that anytime you have a blower or any type of catcher hanging out there that you are taking the chance you are going to damage it. They are built great and Peter at Accelerator is a great guy if you ever do need repairs!

    I have one a Encore 34Z, and it does effect the deck height. I only use it for bagging leaves. Tried it on grass, but caused it to cut uneven. This is on the Encore. Don't know about the other brands.

    got one on a Great Dane 36". love it for small yards, they are a little dusty in late summer or just dry weather. However, the payoff to me is tolerable.
