    Hello, does anyone know of a good replacement shock for the grass catcher on a Walker mower? Mine came without one and I would like to try replacing the Suspa with something less expensive. :eek:

    We've been there a dozen times. There's all kinds of auto/hardware store types but none of them work as smoothly or safely. The frugal way we do it is to swap the trunk lifter to the bucket and use a cheap hardware store one with the same length for the trunk.

    Not sure about the trunk lifter but if you say so.
    I don't have anything similar in size on the mower to the struts on the catcher. I was going to try a pair of struts that are on the tool boxes that Tractor Supply has for sale but if you say that their is that much of a difference then I guess I will break down and get the original.
    I tried to search for similar posts but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks for your help!!!
