ATCO 20” catcher

Hi all,

I have just come into possession of a 20” ATCO series 172055 mower num 20L52. Unfortunately it did not come with a catcher and I am after any info, specs or even photos of one so I can make one myself.

Any information would be helpful.

Cheers

Those numbers don't mean a lot, a model name will help but best of all an IMAGE of the machine.

Sorry about the minimum information. Here is the mower in question and the front page of the manual book which I found on this site but I believe it to be an atco light. There are no other markings I can see (unless someone knows somewhere I’m not looking) apart from saying that it is a 2 stroke atco with a Villiers engine

Unfortunately a bit older than any of my literature but the attached snap of a slightly later grass box may help. Hopefully, another forum contributor, more into earlier machines, will have something more useful.

Cheers for the eBay link.

unfortunately after contacting the seller it seems it won’t fit my unit. It looks like I’m going to fabricate up my own I’m just really interested in some good photos of the catcher so I get a rough idea what I’m making. Thank you again for all your help guys

Suggest getting up close to (say) a 14 inch catcher and taking dimensions from that to scale up, as appropriate. Fourteen inch catchers are fairly common in Oz, although there are two or more designs of them, some more "open", others more "closed" (such as the style of the one in the parts diagram posted by wristpin).
