      It doesn't have to look baskety to be called kos na travu Kos na travu is the "terminus technicus"... I guess the first ones did look that way and now anything that serves that purpose is just called that, even if it looks like a spaceship... one of those things..

      The blade you were talking about is called a "mulching blade"; just
      about all American mowers are made with them now.

      From looking at this parts list, I'm getting the idea that the
      zasobnik serves the same purpose as the "kos na travu" but that it's
      just not baskety enough to be called that.

      Thanks for your help, as always.
