I've purchased an enclosed trailer and I'm looking for some ideas on how to transport the heavy top of an Exmark Ultra Vac bagger system. I don't want to leave it on the machine as I don't use it every day. Is there a way that anyone knows of to mount it on a wall or some way to keep it handy and out of the way yet secure?

Yeah, they're a real beastly piece aren't they.

It's a two man operation to mount.

Maybe use some pulleys and rope and hoist it to the ceiling of your trailer/shop.

That might work.

Why remove it? They are a pain to keep putting back on.

They can also cause alot of damage in a moment of carelessness or inattention. And don't tell me you've never bumped anything!

They're freakin' HUGE! Mine isn't on any longer than it needs to be.

I only have a 52" lazer hp and we have always left the ultra vac rear portion on the machine. We do a mix of bagging and side discharge so it would be a pain to take it off all the time. I has ben backed into trees a few times but I have found it to be surprisingly rugged.

Me too. But I'm not worried about the ruggedness of the Ultra Vac - I worry about what I "bump" with it. They'll really do a number on cars, trees, fences, gates, children :rolleyes: . . . .

The double bagger is no big deal. A LOT lighter and easier to maneuver. It's the tripple bagger that becomes a real hinderance.
