    does anyone know the model # of the bagger ?

    I would like to add to my 148Z.

    how well does this bagger perform ? clogging ?

    which spindle does the drive belt operate off of ?

    do you need to add a pulley to the spindle ?

    You'll love it. Night and day from what you were using. I purchased one two months ago and my son won't let me get on it. Lol

    just take it easy on the turns and don't try to do it in such a small area. give yourself more room to maneuver and as you become more comfortable with the machine and how your inputs affect it you'll notice you need less and less room to make the turns without tearing up turf. your inputs will become more fluid and controlled. try and keep both tires moving throughout a turn. there's definitely a learning curve to it that only time and practice will make better. practice makes perfect!

    I have the 452 with the tripple bagger? The bagger bags well when dry but will clog fast in anything wet. Had to unclog it at least a dozen times this morning.
