    Default Dumb question (?) BX grass catcher

    Searching grass catcher for the BX here I've found some pretty unhappy posts

    Does/why doesn't anyone make a 3 pt grass catcher for the BX? Why/why not?

    I have the factory one on my Bx 23 and it is great! Just don't expect it to P/U soaking wet grass.

    They made one style for the bx1500, 1800, 1830, 2200, 2230, bx22, bx23 and a new style for the bx1850, 1860, 2350, 2360, bx24, and bx25. I have one from bx1500 that I retrofit to my bx25 with the help of fellow tbner's.

    I picked up my kubota bagger (barely used) at my dealer for my BX2200. It's great. Wouldn't be without it. I've gotten much better at mounting and unmounting over the years.

    Thanks, guess I missunderstood. Thought they where all frame mounted.

    The newer models mount to the frame. The older ones the 3PH. I have the newer version and I like it alot. Once you mount and dismount a few times its easy. Heavy wet grass can clog it so dont let it get too tall. About the only unit I liked better was the cyclone rake vac but thats real big to be towing around all the time while mowing.

    I need help. Anyone with a gck60-23bx, please tell me how the duct attaches to the mower deck. I bought a used catcher from the dealer who sold me my BX25. I finally got the adapter kit last week and tried to attach this weekend. After some effort the catcher is on the tractor but for the life of me I can not determine how to attached the duct to the deck. There isn't even a mention of attaching in the grass catcher manual?? Thanks in advance!

    I think a lot will depend on which adapter (boot kit) you got. I have a BX2200 but I don't think it should make that much difference. The deck deflector on mine is metal. I got the heavy duty boot which as part of the assembly has a hinged part. You lift the deflector up on the deck and slide the hinged part of the boot which will have 2 slots. There is a wing bolt which passes through the deflector and screws into hinged part (there is a welded nut). BUT, the big IF, is this the style of boot you have. I am also attaching a pdf file which shows a lighter duty boot which attaches differently and uses a rubber strip with hook to attach. If you have the boot with the hinged portion that attached to the deflector then I can sendyou some additional pictures. I am currently using mine this fall to pick up leaves and everything is assembled.

    Thanks for the parts list and the picture. As soon as it get's light I am going to take another look. The boot I got seems larger and has a window on the top side. The two components that I could not determine appear to be the same as those shown on the exploded view in the parts list. I don't remember mounting holes in the boot. I will know in 30 minutes or so. Thanks for the response it is very helpful.

    Unfortunately the components didn't match. Still at a loss...
