    I am currently looking at different ztr's trying to decide which of them would be best at the three at the methods with one machine. I know that a machine that will do all three or a compromise of all 3 is just that, a compromise. I really need something with large capacity to pickup leaves in the fall, pick up a lot of grass in certian situations and mulch/discharge the rest of the year. I do not want a aftermarket unit that requires a 2nd power unit.
    Dealer situation is also a big deal to me.

    1. Deere dealer is the best in town (F680 out front z-track).
    2. Toro dealers are numerous and competent(z350).
    3. Exmark dealer(hmmm jack of too many trades).
    4. Scag is just not really a choice(scag cougar).
    5. Walker has no dealer close.

    Those are the only ones with integrated higher capacity catchers that I have found. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Try www.Grasshoppermower.com . I've got 2 of them. The bagger picks up grass and leaves quite well. You use the same deck to bag, side discharge, or mulch.
