Ultravac QDS

Has anyone seen or used this new bagger. I just got something in the mail about it, looks great. Seems sort of weird that the 60" model is $50 more than the 72" model. Any comments!

This sounds like the much awaited rear dump ultra vac system. I have yet to see any pictures, can anyone help us out with some pics?

Something tells me that QDS stands for Quick Dumping System. It must BE the new clamshell hopper.

The new Bagger is smaller than the Old ultravac. It's eleven Bushels.

Yes it is the type you can dump from the seat. It is available for the 60" and 72" models. It appears that the majority of the bottom and about half of the back swing open to dump. This is showing a price of $1949 for the 60" and $1899 for the 72" model. I will try to scan a picture of it in, this will be my first attempt.
