    I am thinking of getting a Jumbo Accelerator for my Exmark ZTR for spring and fall cleanups. Anyone who owns one or has an opinion good or bad I would much appreciate it. Is it worth the money considering a grass gobbler only cost half as much as the Accelerator cost?

    Steve, I have an Accelerator for my Phazer and I would not trade it for anything. Yes, they are pricey but they are well worth the cost. The weight difference, the easier unloading, the ease of installation with the no bracket mounting. You may or may not need it, but I bought the dust kit for mine and it works great. They also pack very well and my little GCEX is about as heavy full as a standard GG is empty. If you have not already done so give Peter at Accelerator a call he could not have been more helpful when I needed to know when my catcher was going to be at my dealer.
