Scag "CS" Grass Collection System
| The Scag "CS" Clam Shell Grass Catcher is the
perfect answer for operators that do not want to leave
the seat to dump their debris. This simple to use catcher
system allows you to dump the hopper by pulling a lever.
The unique metal debris screen design removes from the side of the hopper. This
allows the operator to remove and clean the screen anytime it is necessary. Other
designs require the rear door to be opened in order for the screen to be cleaned.
This causes the operator to cease production and empty the hopper before they
are able to clean the screen. The CS catcher debris screen can be cleaned at
any time, without having to empty the hopper.
A patented sweeping device resides
inside the hopper. It wipes loose debris out of the hopper every time the rear
door is opened. This ensures that the hopper is clean and the maximum capacity
is available for the next collection run.
After the initial installation, the entire catcher assembly can be removed and
reinstalled in minutes without any tools! Just pull three quick-pins, release
the belt and lift it off. A 12 bushel capacity hopper (112 gallons, 14.9 cubic
feet) collects debris from a blower that pulverizes the debris, reducing particle
size and increasing the density inside the hopper. What does this mean to you?
Shredding the debris allows you to pack 50% to over 100% more into the same amount
of space when compared to other grass catchers on the market. Simply put, you
will be able to collect more debris before you have to stop and empty the hopper.
That saves time and greatly increases productivity. Talk to your Scag

Note: The CS catcher system fits 2002 and newer product only (not available
for 72" Velocity Plus decks).
ALL STEEL BLOWER ASSEMBLY
The all steel blower assembly is driven by the cutter deck via a self-adjusting
belt idler system, rather than an auxiliary engine. That means a more
compact design, less maintenance, less initial cost, quieter operation
and less overall weight. Thick 1/4" fan blade material ensures
dependability and long life. Improved blower bearing features stronger
cast-iron housing and easier greasing for long, reliable service.
VERTICAL BLOWER DESIGN
Compact, vertical blower design adds only 8.5 inches to the width of
the mower. That's less space than the discharge chute normally takes!
The extremely durable, steel blower housing is angled at the bottom
and front to prevent it from damaging uneven terrain. The blower fan
is constructed of all steel, no light duty plastic components. The
blower fan is 12" in diameter with fan blades (4 blades total) that
are 5.75" wide. It moves
some serious grass especially when compared to other "competitive" systems
that only have 1.5" wide fan blades.
LARGE HOPPER CAPACITY
The large capacity hopper (12 bushels, 112 gallons, 14.9 cubic feet)
is tapered to allow the debris to dump easily.
AUTOMATIC DEBRIS SWEEPER
The patented auto-sweeper engages every time the dump lever is pulled.
It pushes out any stubborn debris and ensures the hopper is clean.
Being able to have the hopper completely empty maximizes productivity.
CONVENIENT DUMP LEVER
The dump lever can be mounted on the left or right side for operator
convenience and comfort.
METAL DEBRIS SCREEN
The metal debris screen removes from the side of the hopper. This allows
the operator to remove and clean the screen anytime it is necessary.
Other designs require the rear door to be opened in order for the screen
to be cleaned. This causes the operator to cease production and empty
the hopper just to clean the screen. The CS catcher debris screen can
be cleaned at any time, without having to empty the hopper. The all
metal screen design is resistant to damage from debris as it enters
the hopper. The flat design of the screen allows for easy cleaning.
HOPPER DOOR LATCHES
The hopper door latches automatically engage when the door is shut.
This prevents the door from opening even when traveling on uneven,
HOPPER PROP ROD
The hopper prop rod keeps the hopper door up and out of the way in
case you need to get inside of the hopper.
Front weight system is standard equipment. The front weights counterbalance
the weight of the rear mounted hopper. Each weight weighs 30 lbs. The
mounting bar weighs approximately 25 lbs. (Number of weights depends
on mower and catcher model).
