rear discharge bagger

Investigating an option to add a rear discharge bagger to the mix, mostly as a back up and preferably in the 48" area; but here is not a lot out there. I love the cut of a Walker, but I believe (!) that it is most suited to highly manicured sod and less suited to the average yard. Exmark makes something as well. I remember Hustler had a rear discharge Shortcut but having run a side discharge many years ago, I recall poor hill holding ability. I did find one (Shortcut) in Jersey, but that is on the other side of the country. Also found some 250/251K and a 260 with bagger, which raises the question:

Can't find tech data on either of these, anyone? Looks like maybe the 251 has a manual deck lift and the 260 a hydraulic one? Engine size is slightly different. Frame different? Weight? Could one take a smaller deck and slip it under the 260? For those of you who have one or used to have one, how does it handle? Any comparisons to the Shortcut? Any other info you might have?
