    About ninety five percent of the guys around here use the Grass gobbler. I have both sizes but I empty the large one before it's 100% full, when I feel the mower is being affected by the weight. They hold up well and are repairaible. I have not used the Accelerator, I might try one this spring. I am a little leary of aluminum because of fratigue strength.
    If I was going to only buy one G.G. I would get the large one because of leaf capacity.

    thanks for the reply. how much does the large gg end up weighing? on average, how much grass can you cut (sq ft) befor e you need to empty? how about leaves? i'm trying to quantify this some how.



    i was told that there some system you can mount on the side, has a flapper wheel and shoots the grass to a hopper that sits over the engine area.

    thanks again

    Hi Grounds Control,

    Here is a quote for you from this post.

    "Mine are the Grass Gobbler - Excellent but like stated heavy when full"

    I am guessing 25 to 35 pounds packed. Packed full two bags fill a 32 gallon garbage can. The way I duimp three bags per can. I am guessing 2500ft per garbage can. So your answer is 1250 sq. ft.

    :) I run the Accelerator's, they are lighter and do a heck of a job, plus the whole bagger is Aluminum and they will last forever......Marks Mowing Service
