    I'm getting a bagger for my Tiger Cub and can't decide between the standard 3 bag 10 bushel bagger and the 12 bushel clamshell from Scag. The clamshell lets you dump w/o leaving the seat and holds 20% more but its also $600 more ($1799 vs $2399).

    Does anyone else make a good bagger for the cub?

    Thanks in advance for a rookie.

    Purchased the clamshell today. I'll let everyone know how it works tomorrow.

    The bagger is great. I highly recommend it for anyone with a Scag. I used it the day of a light rain and it only clogged once with heavy wet leaves.

    One thing to consider is how to get the clippings from the mower to the back of the truck. If you have a good system or on site dumping... go for the clam no prob. Otherwise, for ease of lifting go with the three bagger. I have a walker and 10 bushels of wet heavy leaves or grass is ALOT!
    Hope that helped
