    Has anyone had any experince with this bagger?? How much does the model 16 hold for mid-mount?? Does it pick up really good?? How does this compare to the Scag Clam-shell Bagger?

    Hey, is it this one?


    If so, I couldn't tell you personally other than they appear to do well as far as I have been able to observe them in action.... and I think I would prefer it over their cheesy looking bag system.

    If you do not get enough info here then let me know. Two other respectable outfitts here locally run Grasshoppers and have the clamshell dump style catchers. One outfitt has them on Frontmounts... the other has them on both frontmounts and mid-mounts part of the time. I'll be glad to catch up with them and ask if need be. Just let me know.

    I think one guy here on Lawnsite has one on his mid-mount also.
    Let me see if I can remember who....

    I figured out who that was and sent him a message with a link to here...
    It's the holidays, but hopefully he'll be along before too long to offer his opinion.

    By the way, welcome to Lawnsite... and Merry Christmas...

    I use that Cheesy system because it alllows me to dump the bags in my dump truck. other wise it would all have to be dumped on site or piled and picked up.
    And it works great :)

    Agreed... makes sense for you to use that way...

    But you gotta admit that's still a cheesy looking bagger :p

    There are a few unique things I like about it.
    But I can't imagine what it would look like after one day's use.

    Got one..... Costs around 2k. But worth every dime when it comes to bagging. I dump mine on a tarp and put it the dumpsters at the clients place. Works for me....

    Good luck... I have to repair mine this week.....
