I have a Walker and run a 52" SD deck in the general mowing season. I only use the 48" collection deck for cleanups. On a couple lawns I use the 52" deck in combination was an accelerator catcher. Well, I mowed a lawn the other day with the collection deck that I usually use the 52" deck in combination was an accelerator catcher and what a difference. I know there are pros and cons to each. Of my route (which is small compared to most standards) 10% of lawns I collect the grass and another 10% told me this year they would pay extra for me to collect their grass. Even though I feel that 20% would pay extra for this service, I just can't seem to justify the extra expense and hassle to get set up to do this the way I would like to. What I am talking about is adding a dump kit to the truck ($1000) and a high-lift kit to the Walker ($3000). The setup will cost me about $4000. It would take a little bit of extra time to dump in the truck throughout the day, but the real difference would be at the end of the day or week to take the truck to the recycling center to dump the grass. The added expense for dumping grass would have to factored in the cost of the cut, as well as the added time. I just feel collecting grass is superior to any other method as far as looks go. I am not looking for a pissing match here. I guess I am looking for replies to people that decided to collect grass for cosmetic reasons and built they're business around that market. My business is still in the infant stages and looking for some guidance here. Of course I would have to tailor to the higher end residentials, but is it all worth it?
