    I have a rack em' catcher and i just get nailed with grass. Does anyone have any suggestions as to putting dust shields on it? i was thinking like rubber thats on truck mudflaps and then just rivet it. What do you think?

    i would think that the rubber would add alot of unwanted weight. i have an accelerator and i have used pet window screen, the thick vinyl type and just screwed it on w/washers and it worked pretty good.

    I use the GrassPacker poly catcher and I screwed aluminum coil flashing to the side of it. It doesn't affect the ability to fill up but it does keep the grass and dust off of me.

    you could just put some cardboard on the sides closest to you and hold it there with zip ties this doesn't affect fill at all....
