    I just left our local Hustler Dealer and I have a question. I have 3 yards that I cut each approx. 1 acre. I was thinking of buying the MiniFastrak 42" model. I'm concerned about the bagger though. I have a lot of oak leaves that I will be picking up in the fall. And the bagger that goes with model does not have spindle drive vac. In your opinion, will this unit be able to bag these leaves. I can get this model brand new for $3200 + $550 for the bagger. That's really all my budget allows. Thanks for all the help! :dizzy:

    As long as they are as dry as possible and you are running the bagging blade when running the catcher I don't see why it wouldnt.

    Thanks for your input. Too bad they don't make an air assist bagger.

    The deck is designed for the transitional chute we use, that along with a bagging high lift blade we sell, packs the catcher very nicely.

    I'm guessing you have to buy the blade and bagger seperately?

    Also, what's the MSRP on the bagger for the FasTrak?

    My dealer said that there are high lift blades for riders, but not zero turns because of the high velocity of their blades. Who is right here? thanks

    This is for a Mini FasTrak, yes.

    I answered your question about this in your other post, http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=161562
    I actually put Mini FasTrak and FasTrak information in that post, which do you have? I am thinking you have the FasTrak.
