    Hey guys. I was wondering which grass catcher you reccomend. I am putting it on my 48" Bobcat that is the old style. I was looking at grass gobbler but I'm not sure which one to get. Any help would be great. I would also appreciate some pictures if you have any?:confused:

    Call wright mfg. They might still be able to make you a grass gobbler for your bobcat. Since they used to. Might cost you a couple extra bucks. But call them and find out. You never know until you ask.

    Get the jumbo or you will be emptying it all the time. I would call the accelerator comp too because the gobblers get very heavy at 5:00.

    Listen, buy an accelerator grass catcher. They are made of aluminum so they wont rust like the Gobblers, are much lighter than the Gobblers and dumps easily. They make one especially for your Bobcat. They sponsor this site and have a link up top at the forum headings.

    I have an accelerator xl and couldn't be happier.

    Aluminum is good,but they are expensive to fix as aluminum is not easy to weld. I have a grass gobbler on my bobcat which is fine and has been fine. If you do decide to go with the grass gobbler,i have a brand new one still in the box I would sell.

    Accelerators warranty puts those fears to rest. Mine has been through some tough s--t and is as good as the day I bought it.

    Thanks for the advice. I am going to check out accellerator for their warrenty but if you have one forsale. I am interested in the gobbler too if the price is right. Now that i have thought it over, is it worth it to bag or should i just mulch. Right now i am side discharging but it is getting very messy with fresh mulch in the beds. What do you think??
