    Anybody using the bagging systems for your Laxer Zs(60"),
    please let me know what you think. I just want an opinion before dishing out another 2600.00.

    I do not have one on a 60" but on my 52 it is great. I rely heavily on it and I could not imagine living without it.

    We have the self dumping baggers on 2 of our z's and they are awesome, just a bit on the heavy side compared to the mesh bag version. also, if you have the narrow front tires (the ones that come with the Lazer Z AS) you should think about upgrading to the wide ones - the narrow tires leave ruts with the wheel weights on. also, if you do opt to go with the self dumping catcher you have to run with ALL of the weights or you will wheelie on the slightest incline when the bagger is more than 1/3 full.

    I have 2 Ultra Vacs a 60 and a 52, clean cuts and super on the the fall clean ups, its worth the money imop,,,,,,,,,,, only thing I don't like about it is that it creats alot of dust and the filters get dirty real quick even on the new canister style,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I bet Exmark could make a snorkle to draw the engine air from a less dusty area, at present the air intake is too close to the bags,,,,,,,,,,,, Hey Exmark what do ya think about a Snorkle for us Ultra Vac users?

    I love my ultra vac, I don't have a big issue with leaf blow out, if the grass is really short and theres not alot of leaves, I tend to have alittle blow out, so I just cut with the vac to the inside of the uncut area.

    Only issue I had was the new one I bought last year, seemed to be not as tough as my first one. With under 50 hours on it the bags are ripping like mad, and a few other little issues.

    Yea the bags on my machine are starting to show wear too. The belt snapped in the first 10 hours on the machine, dealer said "it was supposed to happen". It happens to all of the machines, they are "designed" to do that. lol. The only problem I have had with it is it gets clogged fairly easy, but if you take it slow when its wet you will have 0 problems.
