I have a 1023e with iMatch. I'm looking for a bagger preferably with dump function.
I quickly looked into Protero and Superior Tech.
Protero shipped to CT (all in) is $3,400. I recall others getting this for less in the past. I like this one because it is PTO powered and the vacuum fan is near the "bag" and not on the side of the deck. It also comes with a stand.
Superior Tech seems to be a modified JD MCS unit for which I have to buy some JD parts in addition to the SP "bag". The cost of this is $2,500 + $750 for the JD chute and fan assembly.
This is quite a bit of money. Any one else have other options? How much is a regular JD MCS setup with fabric bags? Are the above units worth the premium over the standard MCS?
Thanks for any and all opinions.
