    Who out there makes those bags you see the walker guys dumping their clipings into? Anyone got a link to the actual bag or a price? If I get a navigator i am looking a getting some. Will they work with the exmark? And how many do you think you could haul in the back of a pickup(6 foot box)? Thanks

    They are made by walker and they are bout $65 each i use them on my trailer and they work good, you can probally hold 5-6 at the max im guessing they hold alot of grass and can get pretty heavy.

    Josh,
    If your not scared... swing in and ask Ryan at ATG, he told me he found a supplier that was pretty cheap. Heck you could probally ask any of the guys we see all day at the landfill too.

    BTW, that was a heck of a load of grass on your trailer the other day, how was that to unload?

    See ya round

    How realistic is it for one guy to load these into the back of a truck? Impossible or not? Thanks guys

    If you would like to save a lot of money, you could use tarps. I have a navigator and I use 10 5'x6' tarps. The navigator has a 9 bushel hopper and the 5'x6' tarp will hold one full dump. After I dump I use a bungee to tie them up and toss them into the back of my truck. If you have really wet grass those things can get a little bit heavy tho!

    Oh yea, I'm not a big guy and I have never not been able to get one into the back of the truck.
