    Hey JP,
    Nope, the bag won't work as the back just doesn't fit the armrests well at all, and I tried hanging it off the front of my seat but then the bag covers my controls (key, throttle, etc.) I wish Snapper would have mounted that stuff on the tank, oh well. I was looking at my deck to see if your method would work but even with a 52" deck I don't have enough room for a pail. I did find a smaller bucket that will probably work for me just by sitting on the platform, but now I have to figure out where to hook my grabber...if it's not one thing it's another... :D

    Hey Buck,

    I might give the smaller pail idea when it gets warmer here. Been in the 50's the past two days so I have been stuffing the trash in my jacket and then putting it in the 5 gallon bucket in the truck. We had snow,hail, and rain here yesterday. Felt like November to me. Riding on the ztr I should have had my complete carhart outfit on. :p

    I hear you. Sunday we had snow coming down so hard you couldn't see 300yds...I'm serious. Today was nice, in the 50's finally. If I would've done any work with the Z last week I would have been fully decked out in my snowmobile gear...minus the helmet. :D

    When I worked at the city we put a 5 gallon bucket on the front and strapped it on with a bungee cord.
