There has been a previous Ible describing how to make a trailer-style leaf catcher for a riding mower. http://www.instructables.com/id/Leaf-catcher-2000/

This Ible describes a grass/leaf catcher that sits on a platform attached to the rear of the mower. This is the same idea, different approach.

Step 1: Can Your Mower Use A Grass catcher?

Not all mower decks have the necessary outlet where you can attach the grass catcher. Mine did have an opening in the side of the deck where I could attach my fitting.

If your deck doesn't have an opening then you are going to have to cut an opening to make this work. That is a much bigger project and will leaved your mower permanently modified.

This looks like a great idea, thanks for sharing. Do you have any problems with grass getting stuck in the the drain pipe?
This is a great idea. Thanks for sharing. My brother-in-law is gonna love this!.
