I just ordered the catcher bag ( $160; ouch!). I'm hoping this could save me time on some leaf collection jobs however it may not be the right tool. Is the Scag ok to pick up leaves or will that harm the unit? I have a hand held blower/vac and bag, but surely that would take longer and probably be harder than even raking. I'm hoping the Scag will do it better ( at least on the main lawn section, not counting between shrubs and in beds) than I can with a rake or blower/vac or 21inch. But what do u guys say?
