Anyone have experience with grass catcher attachments? I was looking into a Kubota B1700 and saw in the brochure a rear mounted bagger. Is it powered off the rear PTO? How well does this unit work? Will it also do leaves and hickorynut husks? Thanks for any info.

Kubota seems to offer a pretty compact/slick system, unfortunately I have no experience with how well it works. Its powered off the mid PTO from the mower, and the blower unit islocated at the exit of the mower deck. This is more of a blower design, rather than a suction type.I have a few reservations about it, only for reasons mentioned below. I have used 3 different rear mounted units, (2)Trac-Vac,(1)Allis C. The larger housing 4 blade Trac-Vac units are definitely king over the smaller housed two blade AC unit, especially in terms of ability to handle wet grass,leaves, ect. Hence, my feeling of importance to look at the fan/blade size and quantity. A large/wide 4 blade will obviously move more air per revolution than a 2 blade, & make more noise in the process. Secondly, Thick/heavy stuff req's HP, go for the larger engine option if one is available. IMHO, A system like the Kubota's, was designed to work well for the typical grass lawn. But you may be a little disappointed if the quantity of trees in your lawn have the ability to createa blanket over the grass in fall. Just a reminder: I've never used the Kub system, so I can only speak from my experience with Trac-Vac and AC. FYI: www.Trac-vac.com
