    I use a navigator with a 9.5 bushel hopper. I use an enclosed trailer so I have no option to dump on the trailer so I've just been opening the hopper and hand racking the leaves / grass into the largest lawn bags I can buy. Do any of you guys know of a bag I could use where I could open the hopper and fit the bag around the opening then simply dump the load into the bag? Appreciate your feedback!

    What about using the inserts that exmarks has? It would be easier to dump in a bag I would think

    That walker bags are good but too thin. I get pallet liners from a local factory free. They are heavy mil used to line pallet racks. Can usually dump 2 times in one, but don't much due to weight.

    I have a Navigator and I use both bags and the inserts. I prefer to use the bags though as it is faster to me. I do have the inserts that I would be willing to sell if you are interested.

    No...Exmark DOES NOT make the bags....they sell tubs that fit inside the hopper. I think Walker has the bags .

    Thanks everybody. I'm familiar with the tubs, and might consider buying these from you Reliable 1 (send me a private message for your contact details).

    I really was hoping for large plastic bag info that would be large enough to fit hopper opening (like the one walker has but a plastic lawn bag version that could be tied off and left for curb pick up).

    Again, appreciate all your input...please continue thread and please extend more helpfull feedback as I'm always wanting to do things better!!
