I have more than enough mowers that have seen their better days some run like champs and others need some help. My question here is how long should a bag last? I had an old honda hrc216 that the bag lasted 5 years no rips and sold it with out a single rip in the bag. I also have a homeowner version of the lawnboy insight gold, no rips on these bags either after 3 years. Now I bought a Exmark metro 26 this spring I believe april and it is tearing in the corners and in the middle where the metal is welded. I took in in for warranty repair and they said it was normal wear and tear. I might only have 150 hrs on it and have not in any way abused the bagger in any way. My question to you is how long should a bag last, realisticly? I say at least 2 years. let me hear your thoughts. and dont say get an accelerator because they don't make them yet.
