    I bought a grass gobbler for my 48" scag the other day. It is the worst thing since Vanilla Ice. The cover that you clip on doesnt even cover the opening all the way, it leaves a gap unless you play with it. The chute opening is way to long so there is a opening about 4 or 5 square inches between the mower and the catcher where grass flies out. But maybe it is because it is not made for a scag. Any suggestions on which catcher i should buy for my scag.


    I bought the 300 series, its a jumbo, maybe that is why the chute opening is so big.

    Thanks lawncare3!

    Precision were the brackets and everthing made for the scag or do they just give you a kit and you have to make it fit. I am looking to get one for my JD 797.

    They give you the brackets and you have to install it yourself. It wasnt hard to do, the only problem is that the opening where the grass enters the catcher is too long!

    I'm going to try and rig a peice of metal or plastic in there so there isnt a gap.

    Grass Gobblers come in two styles for Scags. One is for the regular deck and the other is for the Advantage deck. Did you get the right gobbler for your machine?

    I went to the site given above and I can't find anything about what mowers they fit. Like I said I want one for my JD 797 but don't know if it will fit or if they have one to fit it.

    I agree, I have one of these for each mower and they are sh*t.....Go wit the aluminum one from accelarator ind.

    Much much better...:D

    I have a GG too, and though I'm not in love with it, shouldn't you at least have the CORRECT MODEL FOR YOUR MOWER before you go comparing it to Vanilla Ice?
