As for the grass catcher, it did fill up quick however im also coming from a push mower so anything is an improvment over that bag. It was not that bad though i honestly didnt notice it!
Yeah actually the handheld makes sense now. I had a couple times today I accidentally killed the backpack. Had to lay it down, fire it back up...you know..I also have a 5x12' trailer and I'm glad to see you can get two walkbehinds in a line on it. I've always wondered about that because I plan on buying a 48" stander later in the season and I wasn't sure if it would fit.

That's great about the bagging. I'd like to know, relatively, how much grass you can bag before having to dump (turftracer) Obviously type of grass and cut height will effect it dramatically. The only time I've done bagging was the a walker style mower that had the big 9.5 bushel so we could cut 5 yards before having to dump that thing. Of course that's 5 already maintained, not hugely overgrown yards. NONE of my customers have requested bagging so I look at that as a great thing. Won't need a $10,000 walker type mower

Great work. I'm going to start a pic thread with 5 yards I did today a little later, so keep an eye out for it!

Thanks man im hoping to have it done by weds. But with the weather the way it is( you know what i mean) we will see... Good thing is though there is really no time deadline on this project. I also will be reedging and re mulching this house. Last time I did it 2-3 years ago (before I got out of landscaping the first time) I think it used 48 yards total!
