This is the mower my father in law handed down to me, about 9 years old? Ginat Vac - Giant Mow 32" mower. Before I took it he had it completely serviced at a Dealer (JD) at a cost of $242. The thing looks like new and I believe less than 50 hours maybe even 30. So I have a few questions; based upon my only using it for residential on a 3/4 acre lot (my own). 1) being that I would only bag ocassionaly and for fall leaves, is it more justified to just get the gobbler instead of the more expensive Accelerator? 2) Should I get the 3.4 version or the 4.1 size version? would weight matter being that it's only a 32"? 3) The JD shop replaced the blades with some regular blades (2 for $23). It cuts great (first time) but the cut grass doesn;t compare to when a pro mowed my lawn earlier in the year. the grass cliipings were what you see in a babrer shop vesus the larger clippings I get now. Just didn't know if there is a better differently designed blade to get to get that fine chopped up clippings like I saw by the pro. Over all I am thrilled with the mowing of the lawn because the JD 21" I have just made lawn mowing tedious and long. I'd appreciate the help of you guys so that I may order my catcher on friday and get it here in time for leaf pickup.
