    I built this awhile back to use for powerrake thatch and leaf cleanups. It obviously wouldn't take the weight of green grass but it wasn't intended to either. I just got tired of dumping the catcher 50+ on a 1 acre place so this took it from 50 to about 20. BTW thats on about a $300+ type of job, I don't normally bag the larger places unless for the reasons of powerraking or leaf cleanup so this works great. Its larger than the $330 extender as well. My overall cost was less than $20.

    BTW the dog isn't trapped inside, its on the other side:laugh:

    Looks good, the dog thing is funny. I don't imagine its very durable though

    It looks like it's made out of fence type material, or something similar !!
