I have always been of the opinion that a side bagger will change the weight distribution of the mower, & consequently change the way the unit stripes. I have often wondered as the bagger gets full, if there is enough weight there to effect the cut level. There is definitely more weight on the discharge side of the mower, so does it "flatten" the tires on that side enough to cause the mower to cut lower on that side than the other side.hamsey said:I got an accelerator Industries bagger for my TTHP. When using it I do not get those nice defined stripes that I get when not using it. Why would the bagger effect striping? My curious mind would like to know. Thanks for shedding any light on this.
