    How well does this bagging system work. Does anybody have one or has used one? Thanks in advance....I'd be using it mainly for clean-ups...

    if its the same as exmarks dfs bagger it works ok. it needs to be higher off the ground, but its still faster than getting off to dump the bags. make sure you use plenty of counter weight as they are hevier then the bag bagger.

    The problem with the DFS baggers is what do you do with the clippings/leaves after you dump them? If you are dumping them on site they are great, but if you need them in your truck, bags are the best way to go unless you have a truckloader.

    I will be dumping on site in a lot of the properties but i did some measuring and i can back into my trailer and dump. I'll be using this set-up for clean-up's only. Although i like the 3 bag system because it can hold quiet a lot.

    on your trailer you can put a tarp down and pull it out or a 3/4 sheet of ply wood and hook it up to a tree or post if you have the ability to do so.

    I wonder where toro is to respond to this thread?

    Chime in when ever you want to. I amsure he posted on the toro forum to get your input as well, otherwise he would have posted otherwise. I guess we're used to other sponsers taking part in thier forums soon after the post is posted.
