The stripe kit for the 7 Iron decks should be out soon. I saw one at the GIE last fall, looks similar to Exmark's. I have the JD bagger on my 757 works great. Just need more capacity. You need to watch the bags because they can't rub against the muffler and melt but other than that pretty good unit.

On my 737 Im going with an accelerator catcher if I go with any at all. Right now I mulch but still prefer the look of a bagged lawn, not to mention leaf clean-ups.
I have the JD power flow bagger on a 188 that I have had for years. I like the bagger but dont like all the extra maintence or repairs. (pulleys, belts, springs---its just too much hassle) However the accelerator has no moving parts, hence nothing to go wrong.
Looking forward to the roller as well.

I stopped by my dealer a couple of days ago and they didn't have it yet (striping rolloer). But they knew about it and there was a guy in there just before me looking for a roller for his 757 also.

I have the powerflow unit on my 757. It works great. I do wish it had a little more capacity (3-bin unit on the max-frames would be great). Very easy to take on and off. To take the powerflow part off, all you have to do is loosen the belt and pull up. To take the hopper off you just take off two pins and pull up. Only takes one person.

I'd post some pictures of it but they are on my laptop which is getting fixed right now. I did find one though...

I paid around $1200 for the bagger on my 757. The JD rep that I talked to at the GIE, said that he thinks the stripe roller is going for about $200.

I really like the gs30. Very durable, cuts good, and the price was good. I don't want to use it anymore now that I have the 757

Here is a gated backyard that I use the gs30 on:

cntryboymc - I have a couple pics of it. I paid $1,000 for my powerflow and I do feel that it is worth it, though I wish it had more capacity. It really sucks up grass and leaves nice. I'll be happy with it as long as it lasts a while.

I think EZ-dumper and truckcraft are both good units. If I were to buy a new one, I would probably buy the EZ-dumper again just because i've had good luck with it (10 years and still going). I would strongly consider rhino lining (or line-x) the whole thing though. Mine is starting to rust in spots (from the inside out) and I think rhino lining could make it last forever. And it would still be cheaper than the aluminum truckcraft unit (seems very nice, but pricey).
