    Questions to those having 462Z model - what's involved in attaching/detaching the unit from the mower, how does the boot hook to the mower's deck and finally what's the price range for the unit.

    Have used them. It works!!!! Set up is most important.

    A special hitch for only certain models is bolted too the unit. It stays on.
    This gives the best fit & performance. Usually no holes need to be drilled.

    The vac frame is then simply hung on the hitch similar to a 'tongue & grove' fit at the top, and usually only one bolt at the bottom helps to hold it in place, and keeps it from bouncing-shifting.

    No tools needed to R & R the chute/boot which is special made to fit each mower, again for best fit, and vac performance.

    A bracket is bolted to the deck, and many time the discharge chute doesn't need to be removed.
    Chute/boot is simply set into place, and locks itself, or a long pin is used.

    It's simple, robust, and one person can usually R & R the vac frame.

    Price.....shopping to the only way to find out in your area.

    On your 737 there is a quick attach plate. Undo 2 bolts and lift off. I used one on a M655 and 757. Worked great except the hose kept getting holes in it at the bend. Outside of that it is a good unit.
