    I am 6" 4" and around 230 lbs. I once owned a zero grasshopper and put a fabric catcher on the back. The weight from the added grass/ leaves was way way way to much from the engine. I am thinking of a 48" zero and wonder what your thoughts are regarding an accelerator or clam shell catcher.

    The Lazer HP 48" uses the same basic drive components as the full size Lazer Z. Operator weight shouldn't be an issue even with the UltraVac. An accelorator should not cause any undo strain. Horsepower should not be an issue either.
