    I have a Toro 36" WB with a steel mesh bagger and when I go to empty it out, with the weight of the grass and the grass catcher it's quite heavy. I see that Toro sells a soft cloth bagger and was wondering if anyone here uses it and what advantage/disadvantage it is vs. the steel. Is it much lighter? Easier to maneuver around obstacles? I side discharge in the summer but here in Michigan we get quite a bit of rain in the spring so many of my yards I need to use the bagger because of the length of grass. Thanks for your help! :cool2:

    I use an accellorator aluminum bagger. wet grass is heavy no matter what, but I love mine. I would guess it weights about 75/80 lbs with wet grass.

    I just recently bought a Accellorator aluminum bagger, and i love that thing. For the price I dont think you can beat it!

    Ditto, I would buy mine all over again if I had to.
