    I'm looking at some different grass catchers for my Exmark Laser 60". I don't want to spend 1-2k on a bagging system but would like a grass catcher that will pick up some leaves after I grind them up. I really don't want a pull behind but saw a guy who had a Grass Gobbler and wondered what you guys thought. Any recommendations?

    Side catchers really aren't great for leaves. No matter how much you mulch them, the bagger fills up fast. If a bagging system is too much though, this may be your most economical option.

    Check out the Accelerator, possibly with a leaf extension. They're lighter than steel ones but pretty expensive. If serious about collecting leaves I'd get the powered catcher. Check ebay for deals. Personally I use a full mulch kit and never bag em except in rare circumstances. I use the exmark cloth bagger and a cheap steel one on another ZTR.
