I saw a crew earlier this year with an interesting bagging setup on their toro W/B's. It was a hose coming from the deck leading to a 33 gal plastic barrel on top of the mower. I have searched both this site an the net in general looking for this. Any help would be appreciated. Kerry

More than likely it was a front-mounted setup by Trac Vac. It includes a discharge chute, a tube to carry the clippings into a mounted 5 or 6 HP motor with fan and then another long tube to the barrel (I think ours is 42 gallons) mounted on the front of the mower.

I have them for all our 52" and 61" Ferris WB's. They're great once you get used to them...seeing over them or past them can be a pain if yoiu're short, though.

Hope that helps. By the way, they're about $1100 or so.

We had one on a scag it blocks your veiw.They also get heavey on the front and make it hard to raise up the deck if you need to go over a bump
Also makes it hard to grease the spindles because you have to remove the mount that holds the barrel.

That's it. Trac Vac Model 470.

It looks like that but it did not have a motor attached and it was not from tracvac. It looked spindle driven. I haven't seen the crew again to ask them. Maybe it was just fabricated. Thanks for the help ! Kerry

A1 Lawn,

Try this site: www.turfspecialty.com/page4.html.

This is not exactly what you are looking for, however, may be better.

1. Spindle driven
2. Larger capacity
3. Lower profile
