    .... but it does fill up quickly.
    I keep a roll of lawn and leaf bags in my pocket. Then when it's full, I just dump into the bag, leave the bag right there and keep going.

    Then when i'm done, I'll go back and collect the bags and get outta there.

    It's what I use on my own yard. I have three, hundred-year-old oak trees, a 75' pecan and a bunch of smaller maples so there's a massive amount of leaves in the Fall. If I wait too long and let them get too deep, the deck wants to push them in front of the mower. But if I run over the yard about once a week, it looks like I used Mama's vacuum sweeper on it.

    The gator blades help to reduce the volume of the leaves so you get more in the catcher, but you do have to stop and empty every little bit... Sure beats raking by a mile and a quarter.

    Good weekend all!

    I've been wondering the same thing. Any more people with input? Yeah the mower's great. I've been trying to decide if I want the bagger or a total different machine for leaf removal.

    Hey Gary.....plan on a BIG SALE for the catcher? I'd love one but it's a big chunk of money. Put 'em on SALE!!
