I have demoed a lesco ztwo with a peco bagging system this spring. I currently run a emark 52 inch hp mower with 2 bag ultra vac and a 60 inch lazer z with the 3 bag unit. The peco system was nice but using the mowers side by side I was more impressed with the spindle driven lazers. It does take a couple horsepower to run the vacs but if I had to use one day in and day out I would go with the emark ultra vac. Have been using them for 3 years now. They work great. Except in wet grass. Not to take anything away from peco system. Just my opinion.

If you get the Accelerator Jumbo Bag and Extension You will have the same Capacity with out any engines or heavy belt drive blower. You can also remove the bagger in 3 Seconds compared to 15 Minuets.

How well do the accelerator bags fill? Will they fill all the way up or get stuck halfway? Thanks

Hello John G., sounds like you're speaking from experience. I've got a couple of questions for you:
1) Do they fill ok when the grass is thick/wet in the spring?
2) I've got a Toro Z-master with a 62" deck, so the deck is pretty heavy, but do you have problems with a full Accelerator being so heavy that it starts to pull the floating deck down on the discharge side, causing an uneven cut?
I like the simplicity of the concept (and the price too compared to a spindle or motor driven setup) so your input would be appreciated.

thanx

1.You will need a high lift blade and you will cut slower but it can fill all the way.I have found this is where the Meg-mo Blades come in handy, they will fill the bagger up with wet grass every time.


2. It can get very heavy when filled with wet grass, it can affect the cut. I dump it before its gets to heavy.

The blower on theses baggers is heavy as well and it does take power from the engine. I have had the ultra-vac clog in wet grass and when the bags get full it can make the mower rut.

The engine baggers clog in wet to and you do have the engine to maintain and gas up.


all in all you will get to know what your bagger will do in the climate you are in. If you only need the bagger once and awhile, the side baggers are the best.


Just keep the bagger clean.

John, do you use the standard size accelerator or do you use the XL?

XL. Like i said, to use the bagger in wet grass you need meg-mos or Double high lifts and it will work.
