    I am planning to add a bagging unit to my 48" FasTrack SD, and wonder if any adjustment are needed - to the deck or tire pressure due to the added weight at front and rear; and to the engine RPM due to the added power drain by the suction fan - any one know this? Thanks.

    You will need to adjust your tire pressure accordingly for your lawn once the catcher is installed.
    As far as engine RPM's go, the engine just needs to be at the factory setting, no higher.
    Your dealer can check this when they are installing the catcher.

    You will need to check your tire pressure once the catcher is installed and you have a load of grass in the bags, you will want to make sure your tires aren't low or squatting, if they are you will need to adjust a couple psi up.
