What brand of machine do you have? I have a Toro vac system(same as the Exmark). They are about $2,000).If you use it very much it will pay for itself.

Im more looking for a vac for grass, i have a bagger already on my freedom z, it does pretty good with leaves, but with grass it sucks!

the chute gets clogged all the time, the grass has to be short and dry for it to work at all. basically useless

I can do either with mine because it has a vac motor(drives off the chute side spindle). If I use mine every week it starts to kill the grass after a month or so.That makes it a lot better than just a bagger.

Peco has a 2 bagger with a motor that the engine on the mower runs for $999, we put it on our Bad Boy Zt's, they work really good with the motor, useless without a motor. They offer is for $499 without the fan motor, but grass gets clogged really easy.

Bagging leaves and grass

nothing works better than my walker 26 HP EFI with a 48" deck. the large hole screen lets me bag wet grass and the regular screen does a great job with leaves. I have done some hurricane cleanup and it has made me some good money gettin properties back in shape for the labor Day weekend

Our Pro 2 bagger is custom fit for the Scag Freedom Z. Will fit on either 48" or 52" deck and any engine option. The blower is powered by the mower's engine and has a quick connect boot that allows for side discharging without removing any parts of the bagger. It retails for $1149 and can be purchased through your Scag dealer. Check out the video below to see it in action.
