    Personal preference really...

    With the right user either is effective...

    Personally I find that the side bag gets in the way constantly.

    On the other hand, especially doing cleanups, the rear baggers chute plugs relatively easily. Although possibly just optical illusion, the rear bagger seems to be bigger... (And easier to dump)

    Did you buy one of those kee 26s?

    No,I didnt buy one yet.I need to get some more customers to justify the cost.I got a late start with advertising and I just dont have enough money coming in to justify buying one yet.

    I prefer the side bag. Although the rear bag is larger, I find that it often gets clogged easie because the airway is smaller. I've always used side bag LawnBoys and never seen to many LCO's with rear bags. All have side bags.

    i'd go with the rear because the side won't fit in some tight areas.

    On my previous lawnboy I always had a plugging problem with the rear bagger, the opening is just not large enough for damp grasses.

    Definitely go with the rear bag. It hangs quickly and comes open very quickly to make dumping real easy. I keep mine in the truck all the time because it's so easy to use.
