    Have you priced out a model like Peco? They have one designed for your type of mower (front deck?) that seems to work well. www.lawnvac.com

    The 428D is a M-1.... and mid-mount. Sorry, I'm not up on what fits what as far as aftermarket catchers. But I would like to say, FREAKIN' NICE EQUIPMENT LIST!!!
    And ask....

    How you like the 428D 60"?
    How does the 321D 60" compare?

    What's the fuel consumption like on both???

    THANKS!

    there about the same. But the 321 will run circles around it on fuel.I had a 225 and it love gas. 14 gals a day 428 5 to 6 gals a day,321d 3 gals a day.. doing the same yards.. Hope this helps.

    Oh yes, that helps. Great fuel usage!!! I see a 321D/61's but I had wondered if they were strong enough....

    I wish I could help on the catchers. Nobody catches with Grasshoppers here, except the crew with 721D's and they use the OEM catcher on the frontmounts. Seems like a heck of a way to catch..... LOL!

    Otherwise, it's what? Peco or Bluebird?
