I have a G1800 with grass catcher that I have used for 20 years.  Over time the dust screen inside the top of the grass catcher has deteriorated.  Kubota wants around $125 for this piece of plastic screen.  Anyone ever replaced this or have any suggestions on what to use?  Thanks for any suggestions.

How about some of that black screen door screen. I think it's synthetic and suppose to be Dog proof so it should be pretty tough.

Thanks Chris for the suggestion.  I will look into it.  It may be too fine mesh and will cause too much restriction.  The original mesh has about 3/16ths to 1/4 " squares, just guessing the size.

Your right about it having small squares. 

You might check with   http://www.mcmaster.com/    and see if they have anything that will work for you.
