    I will admit, I didnt really think about bagging with my new hyrdo walk-behind when I bought it.

    I see on the website they list one as a option. My next question is how well do they bag? I bag about 10% of my properties with my toro 44" and I hated every min of it. It would leave thin trails of grass ect. Just wasnt cutting it. Is the hustler better or do all walkbehinds pretty much do this?

    :dizzy:

    Not all walkbehinds to what your explaining.
    Buy a nice side catcher and make sure it is mounted correctly (may be a problem with your Toro? maybe?) and you will not have any problems bagging with your Hustler.
    I would also run stock blades or highlifts for most bagging conditions.

    Don't mes around wiht a cloth catcher. Get an accelerator or grass gobbler.
    My 48" hustler WB bags great with an accelerator xl

    I ran doubles on my old 17hp 48" and it would bag thick wet grass like a vacuum. Bagged just great........FWIW, I ran a gobbler.
