    Good luck whiskeymaker, I've been trying to find one myself and you are right, they are $$$$$. I will do without before I pay what the dealer wants for one.

    I have a 737 with a 54 inch cut. I bought a new MCS system from John Deere this Summer. It ran around $2,500. I like the unit over all. It does bag very well. Leafs or wet grass has only clogged once. Only issue is that it does use alot of power. I am running OEM highlifts and with the vac attached it really drains the power. But it leaves a carpet like cut.

    I've got the JD bagger and really like it. Mine ran $1950 that was for the 3 bag system which I'm glad I spent the extra bucks to get. Like greengiant said, I've noticed somewhat of a loss of power, but does a very nice job.

    Have you guys found any after market places to buy blades? I bought a set from ExpressMowerParts, but they do not have the high lift that came with original equipment.

    Picked up a peco last year with a 6hp pony motor. picks up wet or dry and very thick leaves are no problem. The best part is dump from the seat. Found mine on ebay for 800.00 but new I think over 2,000 bucks

    How does it dump from seat? Do you mean on the ground or a lift to the truck bed like Walker offers. If you mean it dumps to the ground, what do you do then? The largest company here in town dumps to the ground with Grasshopper clamshell baggers and then sucks it into a leaf type box with a truck loader. It seems like an expensive method to me, but this guy had everything top notch. He has newer F-250 diesels, all kinds of trailers, and uys brand new Grasshoppers every year, bags everything as far as I know.
