    At least on the job site. I know you guys are gonna scream about more trips to dump the stuff but I don't have a problem with it. What it is is that I put the bagger back onto my tiger cub and found that it makes me more productive at the jobsite. Reason being, I don't have to walk around picking up trash before I mow or trash that I missed after I mow. I can bag it!:blob4: And it looks better too, imo.

    I agree. Don't take the clippings to the dump though. Take them home and mulch them with the leaves from fall etc. and sell it back to the customer for his/her garden in the spring.

    For smaller debris you will probably be able to vac it up. Looseleaf paper and items as such will still make a mess, although not as much as w/o the bagger.

    I personally like to just do a quick qlak thru if its along the roadside and grab the item or two that are there, and then Im on my way. If I missed something or it was buried into the turfgrass then I have my mesh bags for depositing trash into while cutting.

    Just remember that many will tell you that its best to bag during the hottest months only and disperse/mulch the rest of the time.

    Good Luck!

    CSRA,
    You must work in a really dirty area to have enough garbage on your lawns to justify the added labor & expense of bagging lawns.

    Kris,
    "Just remember that many will tell you that its best to bag during the hottest months only and disperse/mulch the rest of the time."

    I had never heard that one before. Why is this? I discharge\mulch all the time. But most of the bagger\vacuum LCO's that I know take their catchers & vacuums off for the hot months when there are much less clippings to deal with. I'd love to tell some of them that they're doing it opposite, if I have a good reason to back it up.
