    I am looking at a used 62" Toro Z and bag all of my accounts, my question is if I buy the toro bagging unit will it work well on a 62" deck or will I have a lot of clogging because of how much is being cut?
    Anyone have this setup?
    thanks in advance.

    we have a 61" Ferris 3000Z with a bagger setup. We typically use it for leaves in conjunction with our Walker. Most of the time though, we remove the bagger and store it away. Senseless to bag everyones lawn, plus the lawn does not benefit from the added nutrients that fine clippings can offer.

    I know walkers are great I have used them but they are a bit slow that is why I am looking into the Z.

    I don't want to bag everyones lawn but up here clients want it because the grass grows so fast you can't mulch and side discarcging leaves ugly grass piles.

    There is only one place that I had this past year that wanted me to bag 50% of the time and discharge the other 50% and that is because they don't use fertilizer.
