    I used my new 36" Fastcat and was surprised to see while using the side bagger what an absolute mess it made, much of the debris shoots out the bag mesh and really it tough running the machine. I may look into the rear bag option but I am sure its expensive. The other option is to get the mulch kit or just shoot it out. Any ideas or is this normal? thanks

    Thats what I was figuring, I think I may try to buy the optional mulching plate and see how it does or just use the side shut and see. Thanks

    Get an Accelerator and that will be minimized

    Why bag?
    Ultra nice lawns?

    If you have a mower with a sweet cut, mulch or blow out the side. Clippings should be barely noticeable.

    I put the collection system on my bob-cat but it is a 52". If it is offered on the 36" I would get it. I paid 1800 for the 3 bag system so the system for the fast cat should only be about 1200-1400. Mine works well with wet and long grass as well with leaves too. I am very pleased with it.
