    Will a 3-bag, bagging system designed for the Advantage deck, work on the Velocity+ deck?

    No. Are you the same one who asked a while back?

    I asked a different question about SCAG bagging systems a while back, maybe that is what you were referring to?. Is there an easy way to retrofit the Advantage deck version to make it fit the Velocity+? I ask only because I found a great deal on a bagging system for the Advantage, but all my decks are Velocity+...Thanks!

    Seeing as how the blower is the go-to part of the whole unit, I would imagine it would no longer be cost effective. I am sure the blower would be at least half of the cost of a new bagging system.

    700-800 for new blower.

    from what I've read they are the same for each deck. With the Velocity (which I have) there is a different baffle that goes on the deck opening that closes it off to accommodate for the blower.

    He is correct. The bracket that connects the blower to the deck will need some adjustment but I think it is two bolts only. You need that baffle to block off the deck opening from a Velocity.

    Yep. Just bought a backup for my new machine. Paid $700
