    I am intersted in buying a Ferris Comfort Control DD 60 inch. The only thing I don't know is if I can buy a grass catcher for it. Ferris does not list it on thier website. Does anybody know?

    There's a bag kit for the hydrocut, but not the DD.

    I don't see where they could even put it without making the machine 10 feet wide. And with 60" you'd fill the bag in a 100 feet.

    Not to mention, once you fill a side catcher the machine would be 100 lbs heavier on one side causing the mower to scalp on the right, skip on the left. (I have a side bagger on my Ferris 36, thats exactly what happens when the bag fills up)

    I had a grass gobbler on my old ferris mower back in the day. It worked just fine.
