The commercial collection system includes a 12 gauge steel hopper and high density polyethylene hood to provide long lasting durability. The 11 bushel hopper has a convenient spring assisted release handle which is accessed from the seated position. Efficiency is increased by allowing the operator to remain on the machine during the removal of collected material.
“High efficiency and increased time on the mower is important for professional landscapers” says Sean Dwyer, Husqvarna product manager.
With a deck driven blower assist, the collection system accelerates debris through the tube and into the hopper. The DFS attachment comes with a front weight kit for proper mower balance and has an MSRP of $2,899.95
