    Got the new bagging system for my Toro Z put on today. Looks pretty sweet, good design, and looks to be pretty easy to maintain. Its raining kind of hard right now, but I did do a few rows in my own yard. Looks like I will have wait for Saturday or Sunday to give it real test

    I demo'd one (DFS system) yesterday at my dealer, his area rep had it there to show off. It did a nice job, but seemed like it made the machine alot heavier. i think he said in the neighborhood of 600lbs empty. (not positive on that??) Have to add baffles to bottom of deck and are somewhat time consuming to remove to switch back to side discharge. But I was impressed when he dumped about a half a load of grass and leaves out the back then turned around ran over the pile and sucked it ALL back up! No clumps or anything left on the ground.:eek: I think you would almost have to have a machine dedicated to solely use this system because it just seemed to be a lot of work to take on and off several times throughout the season. JMHO Marc

  6. we put two on two different z100 series for the up comeing leaf season.

    Nearly every time you take the machine with the baggers on em off the trailer it bangs the road.
    Th weight kit must weight 150 lbs.They sure do operate quiet.

    Cut same tall wet grass and they do bag well .Im hopeing with atomic blades the bagger will do good bagging leaves.
