You kind of lost me but I didn't really take time to study all you said.
Accelerator has excellent customer service! I would give them a call. They will get you straightend out. Some of the guys here really know their stuff, but I think Accellerator is your best bet.
LOL, nevermind...didn't realize this IS the Accellerator Forum...didn't know we even had one...oooops
Please excuse me, lol.
But excellent bagger...good choice...love mine!!!!!!
