I dont bag anything but have started raking leaves this year and have noticed that it would be much much easier to bag them. I dont have a bagger for my mower because it is strickly a mulcher. What I was thinking was, since bagging would be a very little part of my business I would buy a bagger for a Murray mower that I have at home. Murray bagger $225 and a vac bagger over $1000. But what I was worried about was the Murray not picking up pine straw. What about putting high lift blades on, would that puick up the pine straw? Any ideas would help.
