    I just bought a Scag 32" WB, used. I'd like to get a bagger for it (for leaves) but it seems like I could MAKE a better one than the one that sells for $250!!

    Does anyone have pics of any home-made baggers (or other cool things) that they have made?

    I'd LOVE to see some ideas..

    A1 Grass - You probably can not even come close to making one on your own as to what you can buy one for, and besides, the one you buy will probably work better - There is something to be said about volumn manufacturing as to cost, and testing as to results. Those people that make baggers probably logged more time in testing and perfecting the product than you will do in a lifetime.

    Hey Brad, didn't u "make" the Flex-Deck With out the advantages of production and testing?

    Just wondering, It struck me odd that u would offer that opinion in your situation.

    Mark,

    why do you have no chain behind the wheels, is that so you dont run over it when going in reverse? how well does this striper work? is their any way to raise it when not using it? i'm thinking of making one for my wb.

    thanks

    see the bar where it attaches to the back of the mower looks like it flips up and the bungie is holding it from moving

    Don,t need striping behind the wheels. The wheels do the work. Yes trial and error on backing up. It does hinge back to go over things in forward direction. See for yourself on performance.

    I could see myself banging my head on the control panel.
    Either you are short legged or riding on a sulky <sp
    I in no means mean any disrespect! But hou would you use this method without personal injury?

    I am six ft ,300# and haven't tripped on it all year. The amazing thing is if you step on it it just pulls out from under your foot. Chains are smooth. Only real problem is going around pole and forgetting that that bar is hanging out the side. This could be fixed with spring break-aways.
