    Hi everybody,

    Anybody have any experience with either of these grass catching systems? I'm getting tired of $89 cloth bags that only last a few months.

    Here are 2 options I am curious about.

    The Grass packer

    And the steel catcher by catcher king

    Thanks for any input.

    Thanks for posting this. I will be needing a catcher before next season and these were two of the three that I was considering. The third was the Accelerator. I'll be interested to see the responses you get.
     
  3. my grass gobbler has been bullet proof for the 2yrs that i have had it, but when packed full of grass it gets pretty heavy.

    I have one for my Dixie Chopper and that thing is nice and light and easy to dump but I end up more dirty than any thing else. The wholes in the accelerator the dust just flies right through it and right into my face! Its not bad when the grass is a little damp like it is first thing in the morning but thats the only problem I have with the accelerator. I ended up throwing a old sweat shirt on top of the bag to cover the holes and that prevented the dust from coming out the top!

    Accelerator is expensive but I have no regrets. Its the only one I would buy due to light weight.

    i have the grass gobbler too and i do say it gets heavy with a full load of damp grass. But it has lasted pretty well over the 2 years ive had it.
