    Hello all,
    I am hopeful someone has the specs for the weights for the DFS bagger system on a Toro Z500 with 60" and 27 HP air cooled.

    Thanks!

    What kind of specs?

    Just the actual weight. Bought a system from another LCO, but no weights included. Some hot rolled and u-bolts should do it, but I want to ensure I have it right. That DFS weighs a ton.

    I had an UV on my Lazer. It had cast iron weights that went over top of the casters. Probably 40-50 lbs each. Then it had additional weights bolted under the front of the foot plate.

    Don't know what hot rolled is though?

    Hot rolled steel. A little less density than cast iron, but it's the total mass that counts.

    The instructions show just the caster weights for the Toro. It looks like the air cooled 60" gets the "base" weight, while the LC and 52" get some additional stacked on top.

    Thanks.
