    ok so maybe every 10-15 minutes but it is very time consuming to dump all three bags I was just trying to find out what everyone else is using, I like the idea behind the DFS system but most people say they do not performe as good as the ultra vac system

    Actually you will find the ultra vac does not perform well in high and wet conditions! Toros old bagger was the best out there by far.

    DFS - all 4 Z have them. I really don't have any issues - the chute or boot may clog now and then but I like them cuz it fits our rigs.

    We back up the trailer - which has a side dump on it, unload, start mowing again. Really have no reason not to get off the mower.

    No more lifting bags over the truck or trailer, on / off etc.

    I have a Z Master 560 series with 60in deck and also have the DFS system. I was wondering if anyone has trouble with the deck blowing the leaves in front of you on the right side of deck before you can pick them up? Over all I like the system but this one problem is a pain in my a**. I have adjusted the chute and makes no difference. Anyone else have this problem?
