    Well, I read this and decided I couldn't leave this thread without speaking my mind.


    In my absolute honest opinion, I think pretty much all collection systems are a money pit.

    They all seem to cost a fortune, and none of them seem all that durable.
    Spend plenty new and spend plenty in upkeep.



    On a side note, were you aware there are I think 4 collection units for the Ztwo?
    The Peco and another hopper type collector... and the old 3 bagger that some didn't like and the brand new 3 bagger.

    It was too heavy, took two guys to mount. It sets too high on the mower, you catch all the low limbs and damage the unit. Plus, the one I had used a 6 HP motor to run the blower. Lots of extra weight on the mower.

    I'd look at the Protero for the simple fact they have a deck driven blower instead of another engine. Only aftermarket system I know of with thier own blower outside of OEM.

    Yeah, that's it.... Protero is the "other" hopper type collector I couldn't think of in post #5

    Then there is 3 including Hasty Vac that I have on our Z's (10 or 11 bushel) I believe.
