Glad to hear it works out great. I would like to try it one out bagging. I bag all the time, and i would like to see how this is. Plus i want to try out this 2 cycle engine..
I was thinking of installing that Hi LIft Raptor gator sytle blade Indy posted in the link on his Torothe snapper is simply peerless at leave cleanup. its all i do nov-march here in fla. you will never rake leaves again! if you think the ninja does a good job-wait till you see what the gator does! -its simply amazing. want even more vacume? install the high lift blade -need even more?-add the wings to the blade and watch it suck up darn near anything
Well...i left that part out.:fing32:Hmmmm? Sounds like something my wife would say also. Of course then my replay would have been, "No"! "I'll need to go back over my paths to CUT the grass this time"! :1221:
Actually Eric its the STEEL HI-VAC commercial deck.I assume this is the alum hi-vac deck with the black chute coming out of the notch in the side? Sounds like it works awesome.
What order would you put the following mowers in terms of bagging performance?
Lawnboys (side or rear bagging)
Mine was grabbing a few acorns with just the ninja...i can't wait to try a Gator or Raptor.wait till you try a gator-you will amazed! usually no bagging-just run them over are they are gone like magic. snapper will even vacume acorns. back when i worked for some one who used snappers -we killed several peoples lawn by bagging all the time(boss insisted we bag)snapper pulled up the soil and left the roots exposed to hot fla sun . lawns died. try the wings and see what happens! megga suction. i use them to clean up after hurricans etc. will pick up and bag most anything that fits under the mower using the wings
I think the Gator blade or Raptor blade from STENs is about as good as you'll get with the already superior snapper deck.I just picked up a '81 Snapper HI-Vac Agco 21401 Series I B&S 4HP for $40. Haven't been able to find a WR yet! It runs great. Lots of power from the B&S of old. The chute feels like a high-speed blower without the bag! Not like the B&S of today. What blade should I use to suck up the leaves from my oaks?
I'm just like Florida here in SE Texas. We need to pick up leaves almost all winter, but I mulch the rest of the time.
What the **** does the snapperizer do and is the mulcherizer worth messing with?
So I guess I need a Gator blade. Where do you get them? Would my local dealer have them?the snapperizer is a wire screen that fits inside the deck and forces the leaves tru and shreads them. gator makes this part un-necc. for oaks you want the stock blade or the gator will work but you might have to go over them twice-1st pass -mulch-2nd pass bag. oak leaves dont decompose as well/fast as others so its better to bag them if you have a ton .
