I found that out the hard way doing it with inferior equipment for a couple years, pain in the butt unless you are set up with the Z and attachments.
Also I think power raking/bagging is a waste of time for the most part. Doesn't serve much of a useful purpose IMO. BUT, and this is a big but, customers line up to have me do this to their lawn. This is one case where what the customer wants, the customer gets.
I have only done small jobs
