Glad to see your rebuilding stuff. I'd hate to be in your spot but I do admire you as most of the others on here probably do for keeping your head up and pushing through.

I'll be praying for all you guys hit by these tornadoes, I'm sure it's hard loosing everything and trying to rebuild.

On another note, I can tell you like the bagger, does it clog much or does the belt driven fan prevent most of that. My grandpa has a similar bagger on his cub cadet riding mower, but it doesn't have a fan and ends up clogging sometimes.
Yea, in that thick stuff it clogged up alot...

Nice dump, that thing's sweet. Exmark makes bagging easy with the ultravac. Simple, reliable, and effective. I'd love to see the difference between a triple and double bagger.
