  3. I just use a Wright mfg. metal bagger.<p>How do you plan on dumping the clippings into the back of your truck when needed?

    i prefer the trac vac for the bobcat, scag, & exmark ZTR's. They use a 45 gal. Rubbermaid trash can, & you can easily buy extras in the store to reload on the jobsite. No driving up into the truck or trailer or a sack like the Walker. Best of all, you get to keep the 61&quot; cut while bagging!<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>

    lawrence i realize now that i will have to use a tarp so i guess the trac vac will suffice. I just think that a simple bagger system will not hold enough leaves for a normal cleanup job.

    The small Grassgobbler weighs in at over 20 lbs. so the jumbo with the extension is even heavier. Better eat your Wheaties.<p>John

    Yardsmith, Have you found a suitable bag to insert into the rubbermaid can? I tried the el-cheapo and the bag wouldn't hold up.<p>Homer
