    Ok, i know of local companies that run ztr's with vac units on them all the time. The cuts look beautiful, but my question is what the hell are they doing with all the grass? I know that if i use my side bagger, I will fill up 2 garbage bags full of clippings depending on time of season. If they use a vac, they have to be filling up every 1-2 accounts. So, are they storing 30 bags of clippings in their trailer each day and dumping at the end?

    I have accounts that i spread, and only a handful that i bag, so if i bought one, i can't see keeping it on for all my jobs, or even taking it off.......then putting it back on for the according accounts. I'm even thinking of dropping my bagged accounts anyways.

    Please educate me as to how this unit works because i don't see myself hauling around countless bags of clippings. Unless maybe i'm missing something and this unit perhaps pulverizes the clips into dust, creating more room......
