Type 1 - Existing flat edge:

  1. Align the supplied bracket flush with the edge of your deck. The bracket must follow the edge of your deck for correct fitment.
  2. When the bracket is in place, mark two holes and drill to 8mm.
  3. Bolt down the bracket with the hardware provided ensuring that the bracket edge is flush with the deck edge.

 

Type 2 - Catch Pro ready decks:

  1. Your mower deck may already have a locating hole in place on the upper lip. If so, skip to the Attaching the Catcher instructions at the bottom of this page.
  2. If the deck has no hole on the upper lip, remove the locating pin on your Catch Pro.
  3. Place the Catch Pro on the upper lip so the inlet is covering the mouth of the mower.
  4. Mark the position where the locating pin will go (through the hole where the locator pin was removed), and drill a hole to 13mm.
  5. Reinstall the locating pin on your Catch Pro.

 

 

Type 3 - Decks that require an adaptor:

  1. Place the supplied adaptor over the opening on your mower deck
  2. Drill to 8mm on the top of the bracket and through your mower deck.
  3. Drill two holes to 6mm on the flange (Front edge) of both mower deck and adaptor.
  4. With the supplied hardware, bolt down your adaptor.

Type 4 - Decks with a rear curve

  1. Place the provided bracket on the edge of your mower deck.
  2. Starting at the rear of the mower deck, slide the bracket forward until the rear of the bracket fits snug against the mower deck.
  3. Check that the bracket is in flush alignment with the deck to create a straight edge.
  4. Mark two holes and drill to 8mm.
  5. With the hardware provided, bolt down the bracket.

 

Adjusting the Locator Pin:

If your Catch Pro is not lining up with the existing hole, the locator pin can be removed and reinstalled in one of the three countersunk holes  to allow for correct fitment.

 

Attaching the Catcher

Hold the Catcher with 2 handles, approach the bracket/mower directing the locating pin in the mounting hole provided, then lower the hook over the upper lip.

 

Removing the Catcher:

Hold the Catcher with 2 handles, lift the catcher with the rear handle, pivoting the hook off the lip. Move the catcher away from the mower, sliding the locating pin out from the mounting hole.
