    Looking at getting one for my Scag WB to pick up leaves mainly on a few small properties? How well do they hold up for occasional use?

    Rack em makes a good bagger for the money.

    yeah I got a brand new, "used" for 150. Haven't got to use it much but they look well built for the money. They look a lot like the "grass gobbler" so if you used those, the rack em is pretty much built the same way.

    I have one for my Scag VRide and its a solid product but even when its empty it is SOOO heavy and thats the only down fall for me and the guys. Otherwise its a great bagger and holds together

    That's something else I was wondering how much they weigh empty? I couldn't find it on their website.

    Well I got mine in yesterday. First off it's not near as heavy as I thought it would be, I was really surprised. It was very easy to install, it took me maybe 15 minutes start to finish. It fits my discharge opening perfectly too. I didn't get to use it yet because of rain today, but I did pick up a few leaves with it in my own yard between showers and it cleaned them up very well. I think it is going to work for what I want. And it looks like it is built well and will hold up.
