Does Exmark Vantage have a bagging option?

Dealer told me that it does not, but is there an aftermarket option?

Accelerator bagger will fit. If you go to their website you can plug in your exact mower and it will tell you which will fit. They are also a advertiser on the left side. This bagger is awesome reviews from everyone that has one.

No problem. From what I have heard they are pricey, but worth every penny.

Wow....THAT is what the dealer is telling you??? Exmark DOES make a bagger for the VANTAGE....3 bushel type...the same that have been used on the ULTRACUT decks before the stander was released. In fact I'd kindly take the 2011 EXMARK catalog and turn to page 21, and 3/4ths down the page it is listed in black and white. Also on page 34 there is a VANTAGE pictured that actually has a bagger on it.......

wow, well that makes me question them for sure. I will call them again. Unfortunately this dealer is the only one within 70 miles.

yes and no

I remember when the vantage first hit dealers over a year ago, there was something screwy with the baggers so If your dealer hasn't had alot of experience with that, it may be stuck in his head.

Accelerator GCEX or GCEXXL fits right on. Expensive but well worth it. That's what I offer.

Go to pro tero web site. They have one that fits a grand stand. It should fit a vantage. It's dump from the stand. Like a dump from the seat ztr. You will have more capacity and save time over an accelerator bagger. If you bag leaves or run a jrco dethatcher you will need the extra capacity.
