    I am going to start bagging fall and spring clippings. What is a good bagger for the Exmark TTHP? Thanks!

    If you are just looking for a regular bag, a Wright Grass Gobbler will work. I have one and it works great. If you want to use it for leaves too, they also offer the Leaf Gobbler that is just an extension you can put on the Grass Gobbler. The grass gobbler, at least where i am, will run around $250. Just my 2 cents. Link:

    I don't want to be rude but the Grass Gobblers suck. I have one and I hate it with a passion fill it up with wet not damp but full on WET grass and tell me you still like it.

    My next bagger is going to an Accelerator it's going to cost me $500+ but it's aluminum and it's lighter than the GG's.

    Just my $.02

    I use the Exmark side bagger. Works pretty good. About $300.

    Hey Lazer Z, I have only used it once and it was ok, great may have been a little much. I have not used it except that one time but what happens when you fill it with wet grass. I will mainly only use the bag durring the fall. It is too much of a pain to take off the mulch kit. Please let me know so i won't waste the time trying it when i can just get the answer from you who is more experienced. Also, in wet grass do you just mow it twice then? Thanks, I am sorry to be so two sided on this issue. I think i'll just keep my mouth shut on this issue, sorry.

    My dealer carries Exmark and Accelerator. Price difference is about $60. Will the Accelerator fit TTHP without modifications?

    I just checked out the Grass Gobbler. Not much information on their website.

    I got my Accelerator from Bethel power and it cost me $440. I got the 6.2 and it packs full but this fall I will be getting the dust cover for it. When it's full with wet leaves/grass it probably weighs about 60lbs. Empty it's about 10lbs.. Very easy to put on and pull off. Fits perfect.
