    I'd imagine after a little modification it would work.

    Krusty, you can't get pm's but I have a a bagger for you.
    I have an accelerator bagger that came off an exmark that will fit your encore. It is the 4.15 cu ft model, it is in fair shape a few of the welds that hold the bottom screen on broke but still works fine. This retails for over $300 new selling for $150 plus shipping.

    I also have the entender for leaves that is brand new bought in NOV used twice. Selling that for $200, (retails for $250).

    Forget the bagging - the grass will do better, saves money for you too.

    LOL, if we didn't bag here there wouldn't be any grass ALIVE in many places! Grass dosn't like to live when it's smothered under mounds of clippings. Iv'e seen lawns around here where the homeowner or lco "thinks" they can mulch or SD. It's NOT pretty!

    Krusty, if I was you I'd jump on that catcher! It's not easy to find those for sale and new prices are steep!

    I wonder if the back 1/2, the extender, are they universal and fit all the accelerator catchers.

    used to use exmark bags on our encores, you have to move the back mounting bracket about a quarter inch if I remember right...an easy modification. Hold the bag plate up to the mower and you should see what you need to do.
