Need advice on a 36W/B for leaves +

I have 2 ExMetros (belt) and needed some advice on trading in for (A) hydros & (B) the best double combination for a bagger, and is the HP strain a consideration?

Luck has nothing to do with it.

Not sure if this will answer your question but I will tell you what I use. For my smaller lawns I have a great dane, 36" hydros. It has 17 hp, I use mulching blades with an accelerator bagger. The bagger is nice beacuse its light weight. This setup works pretty good for me. Never had a problem with hp.

I have a metro hp for my smaller lawns.When I tried doubles for the first time, I thought they put too much strain on the engine ( 15hp Kawi ). I had high lifts under low lifts. I thought I was going to like this setup pretty well until I hit some high burmuda grass and the blade belt started slipping. I checked the blade tentioner and it was aligned perfectly. I have an anti-blowout baffle installed so I dont have the blowout problems I was having while trying to bag leaves. For leaves I like gator highlifts. They bag really well for me and reduce the volume of leaves.
If your lawn grows an inch, Ill be back next week to cut that inch off.
