Looking for some feedback. I have a 48" TrimStar. I have two customers who insist on me bagging their clippings. Up until recently I was running the stock fusions (very happy with them). I bought a set of gators and noticed the clippings are not being thrown into my accelerator as well.

I understand what it happening; I believe the gators are doing their job of keeping the clippings in the deck longer. Here is my questioin: I thought about running a gator on the trim and mid spindle and putting a stock fusion on the discharge spindle.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Kevin

That would do it.
The problem is the Gator does not have a solid lift to push the grass into the catcher the way it needs to.
