Power rake/dethatcher: bagger or no bagger?

    Last season I rented them when I needed one and all they ever rented me were non-baggers. I went to auction a few months back and found a bluebird w/bagger and picked it up for only $150. I havent had a chance to use it yet but wondered what downsides there would be to having a bagger. Only downside I can think of would be weight, does it make that much difference?

    if the bagger does a good job it could save you a lot of time. it seems the clean-up takes longer than de-thatching!
