    GrassGobbler. I have one on my 32" metro. I love it. Get the real deal. The other metal catchers just don't hold up to the original.

    I also have the eXmark cloth catcher. Also work very well. I am selling the cloth catcher $110. It has some rips in it, but works just fine. The mounting plate was killing me on one property, because it keep if from fitting through the gate. So I replaced it with the gobbler. Other wise I would still be using it.

    An operator to walk-behind it.

    2nd best option is two-wheel velkie.

    sulky and a accelerator grass catcher.. Much better than the gobbler in my opinion... its very light to, I have the 6.15 Xl catcher and full of grass its easy to remove and dump.... Couldnt imagine anything smaller I would be stopping to often.

    Now, where do you buy these grass catchers? Do they have to be made for your specific model?

    s and s mowing:
    When you purchase and if you purchase a sulky, don't make the mistake I did and get a one wheel one if you care about your stripes, it destroys them. Get the proslide, it makes them alot nicer.

    the company sponsors this forum. I got mine from lesco. and a sulky is important. If yo have a H/D get a casting sulky.
