    Im looking to get a grass catcher for leaves this fall for my Ferris 52" dual drive. I found one at mowtownusa thats 4.3 cubic feet for 179.99. Does anyone else have one of these, if so how do you like it? It says it fits Ferris mowers so Im assuming it will fit mine. http://www.mowtownusa.com/m5_view_item.html?m5:item=CK-4430

    We have the Rackem' version, for our Ferris DD48, which looks identical to the one in your link. We have added the fabric extension to the steel catcher which just about doubles the capacity. The steel unit has a bracket that you drill and mount on the deck. The reason that we added the fabric extension is that you will find that you will fill that steel catcher very quickly. Hope this helps.

    Have you considered an Accelerator? They are a little pricey, but will far out last that steel catcher and are also a ton lighter than their steel counterparts. Here ya go http://www.acceleratorindustries.com/mowermodels/Ferris.htm
