    how long did it take you to put this thing together and on the machine?


    how long do you think it will take you to take this on and off of the machine? do you take it completely on and off?

    i thought there were some gear boxes and stuff that you put on there maybe a clutch too. do you leave all of that stuff on there all summer while mowing.

    i'm from south of minneapolis.... 2 hours away from you. ;)

    That's the first Everride 3 bag set-up I've ever seen outside of their website. the bags look a LOT smaller than what they looked on their site. I'm sure they will stretch some over time though.

    You may want to pull those front weights OFF. I know with my Grasshopper 61" it came with an insane amount of front weight too for use with the 3 bag catcher. I noticed that the handling of the machine was VERY sluggish, and it was actually really front heavy and hard to even slow down or stop when just driving in a straight line. Just as as expriment I pulled all the weight off the front, and guess what, it wasn't really needed at all! Even with the catcher clear full of wet grass the front isn't light going up hills or anything. and it handles 100% better without all the weight.

    Just something to think about...

    i was going to say the exact same thing. that looks like too much weight. also those bags look a little small. here is the set-up i have now and my bags seem bigger than those.
