Hello new to the forum and like what I see!

I have a question on the Accelerator Bagging systems. These are the aluminum side bag attachments for leaves and grass. I have a 2011 Toro 52" Grandstand that I want to buy a leaf collection system for doing fall clean-ups. I have checked out the systems sold by Protero for the Grandstand units but they are built to order and take about 2 weeks to get. These units also cost around 2k. I'm in Wisconsin and by the time the thing gets here the snow will be flying and it will be useless to me. Toro does not make a vacuum system for the Grandstand yet and they only use the cloth bag #30104 for this application. The Accelerator looks really nice and I talked to the guys that make them and they said they work very well. I can buy one for about $475 versus the cloth Toro one for about $370-$400. I was wondering if anyone else here has used one of these bagging systems and if they do work as advertised. I can get one shipped to the local dealer here in 2 days. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Have you considered any of the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuums units?

A lot of members use these and have posted rave reviews about them.

I have a mower that I want to add an accessory to. I could not imagine hauling that hunk of a square box around to pick up leaves that I only do a small portion of the year. I wouldn't waste my money on that thing I'd just buy a system for my mower from Protero. God what a pita that has to be to haul around to jobsites! I bet they work well but that's not what I'm looking for. Thanks for the reply though.
