No more messy bags! The PV 212 works with power flow systems and passive chutes to replace conventional bag catchers on brands including John Deere, Simplicity, Toro, and Cub Cadet. Adding minimal length to the mower, while retaining good operator visibility, the PV 212 holds a respectable 12 cubic feet / 9.5 bushel capacity. The dump lever is easy to pull and gives a secure and positive spring-like feel when the door is latched and locked into place. The ruggedly designed PV 212 is an economical dump-from-seat alternative for commercial mowers. It works with the time-proven Protero universal blower, as well as major brand blowers, including Toro, Exmark, John Deere, Kubota, Ferris, and Cub Cadet. Catch grass and leaves with efficiency and convenience!
