Default Hydraulic Operated Grass Catcher

I realize this is NOT the place to discuss lawn equipment but I have come to know the diversity of this group and hope there is someone out there that can give me some help. My back isn't what it used to be and I wanted to buy a John Deere material handling system (580L) that will attach to my tractor and dump grass catchings hydraulically. It seems John Deere doesnt sell these in North America but nearly everywhere else in the world. I live in Canada and would dearly love to know if anyone out there has come across this problem and what they did to find a solution. I would be prepared to purchase a unit from the UK and ship it here if necessary but was hoping there was an easier and cheaper solution.

My recent solution was to employ a lawn contractor and he does a great job. I'm having difficulty bringing my self to sell all my machines after manicuring my lawns for the last 40+ years.

Gumtree, Harry, Gumtree.......


PS, some of the 'suburban' blocks I saw in US and Canada are much larger than our suburban blocks.....

I know that James, it's a matter of actually making the decision to sell them that's holding me back. All of my surplus tools were sold on Gumtree, my phone hardly stopped for days, mind you, the prices were designed to sell quickly.

"Gumtree???"
Rather like your Craig's list, no charge to advertise, it's owned by Ebay (surprise, surprise!) It appears that America also has Gumtree!
