I purchased an 26" exmark mower this spring in april. I use it 2 days a week averaging 5-6 hrs of use a week max. I am having it rip where the two metal pieces in the middle come together and in the corners. this is after maybe a total of 150 hrs max. I took it to my dealer and he said that it is normal wear and tear. I understand normal wear and tear but not on a new mower. I have a residential lawn boy that has well over 500 hrs on it and bag is better off than this bag. I also had a honda commercial mower that had well over 1500 hrs on it and never had to replace the bag. I can make a couple of suggestions. 1. warranty these bags for a reasonable amount of use. and 2. add extra material to the corners and stress parts of the bag. This is upsetting more on the part that I can not get an accelerator bagger yet for this mower and do not want to shell out 100 bucks twice a year for a new bag. Please respond with a solution. Thank you.
