    I am looking into both the bins and the deflector. I need the bins for when I collect because I dump into a trash barrel with clear bags and it will be easier to dump the bins rather that digging it out with my hands or dumping in the ground first.

    For the deflector, it will help deflect the grass down and stop me from shooting against objects. I was cutting yesterday and when I turned I shot at my coworker (did not see him) and he said it hurts. Can you imagine if it is wet and shoots agains the house! I am just wondering how much the deflector folds down for storage. I know that it takes about 30 seconds to put on.

    Here is a good image of the deflector. http://emmettequipment.com/?attachment_id=290

    I have a set of large hopper bins for sale in Memphis, TN. These are in great shape and asking $100.

    4 bins placed under the hopper, tip the hopper up and everything falls into bins...........cheaper and easier than pulling bins out of a bin

    One idea is very large trash bags that you can dump straight in to. My walker dealer use to carry them but no longer does.

    I may try some from uline this year. So if anyone knows which size or spec bag they use. Please let us know.
