    This morning I was driving on the freeway in my work truck, I have my new 26" eXmark in the back sitting sideways next to the tail gate. The next thing I know the bag go's flyig off! Some guy in a BMW ran it over its history now. That bigger bag on the 26" catchs more air in the back of trucks. So be carefull! Im going to make sure there is some grass in the bag for weight from now on. I have drove my truck with all my other mowers in the same place in the back of my truck for 21 years, but this is the first time a bag has blown out.

    The Proline 21" Bags are Over $100...Guys Buy the Residential Personal Pace Bags Which are Cheaper, to Replace Proline Bags...

    The Metro 26" Bag is Probably Over $120 and You Can't Get a Homeowner Replacement...

    Think of This as An Omen...Throw Your 26" Metro Over a High Bridge...Buy a 21" Metro/Kaw and Mulch Everything.
