Toro ZTR Bagger Demo!

Had a Toro 52" ZTR with a bagging system to demo today. Wanted to try it out because I have the mower and was intrested in buying a bagger for leaf season. First problem was I could not get the unit off the trailer without scrapping the bottom. Second problem was all the blow back from underneath I could hardly breathe. I wonder is there another bagging unit that will fit the TORO ZTR other than the TORO factory one? Hopefully one that will go on and off easier and load on the trailer without scrapping?

I just called my Toro dealer yesterday to ask about the Exmark Ultra Vac, and would it fit my Toro 52" 255 Z Master. He informed me that it had a different attatch plate. Shucks I was thinking that since they are the same mower's minus the deck that the baggers would be interchangable. Does anyone else have any experience in this?

I just called Toro, and they said that nothing but the dump vac is available, nor did they have any knowledge of one coming in the near future. Sorry for the news. Maybe next year!:blob3: Looks like I will have to stick with the Craftsman for bagging. Heck I've got to use it for something! Its hard to get on it for the following reasons: #1 Tired of loading and unloading it. #2 At 6'6" 290lbs it is like riding my daughters 20"bike. #3 So slow 7-8 mph it aint! #4 After riding a Z Master getting on a Craftsman is like getting out of the space shuttle getting into a glider

Blessed 1,

How long have you had the ZMaster? I have about 130 hours on mine. It is the 200 series with a 20hp Kholer. The bagging unit I spoke of cost around $2100.00! Ouch!

I bought it back in May. I had the 200 series 44" 20hp Kohler for about 2 weeks, but because it kept bogging down (carb problem) I traded it in on the 255 52" 25hp. I am only part time evenings. I have 31 hrs on it so far. The ultravac baggers go for $1895.00 here. Now do you see why I keep the Crafsman for bagging puposes! Not to mention it is new too. I have 12 properties and growing!

I'm thinking seriously about buying a Little Wonder 8hp to take care of my leaf work this year! It runs aound $800.00. Big difference in price and here you can put the leaves to the curb and the city will pick up. I'll buy a bagger for my Z if I can find another unit that will work on it.
