    I bought the 42" with the B&S engine, and the grass catcher. I couldn't afford the extra cost for the Honda engine.

    I love the mower, this replaces an Old 1990 Country Clipper and is so much faster, mows very well, catcher works well, I would recommend this ZTR.

    I bought the one Hustler 2 bag unit that works with the 42" or 48" decks

    "2-Bag Catcher
    Easy-on, easy-off hopper assemblies. The Sport catcher holds 3.5 bushels. The Sport version does not have an assist blower."


    Take a Pickup truck to pick up the bagger, it is a lot of steel and comes in a big wooden crate. Well made in the USA. Kit has everything including the front counter weights.

    The catcher works very well!!

    Very good. Thursday night I started late trying to beat sunset, mower the lawn at full speed. The cut was excellent
