Here's the background info: Scag 48" (ONLY 19HP) velocity deck 14 residential accounts, none over 1 acre several are lightly-heavily wooded **I dont do fall or spring cleanups because I'm away at school** (I sub them out) I want/kind of need something to collect clippings and currently have nothing. Taking into account my light load of accounts, the fact that I never do "cleanups" and my mower is only a 19HP that I can hear struggle on some of the steeper hills I do, I am leaning towards a Scag made sider bagger. Light weight, easy to put on/take off and most importantly, its affordable. I have been discouraged from a side catcher mostly because it's primative, inconvenient, etc. Would anyone suggest (1) a different brand side catcher (maybe more durable or affordable) or (2) a vacuum system. If you think I need a vacuum catcher CONVINCE ME! Any opinions and advice are apreciated!
