Last year I ordered the MCS 20 bagger system for my 1025r. It is an expensive setup (north of $3k) that I purchased as the final piece to replace the cyclone rake and GT235 i used to mow with. I now mow with my 1025r.
I have had the MCS (material collection system) system for a year almost to the day. After having it for a year, I am not so sure it shouldn't be called the MBS (material blower system) 20. There are times it works pretty well. There are times that the system creates a turbulent at the Powerflow intake that causes a strong enough wind to push all the material out from in front of the mower. In fact, don't even try to pickup scattered spring leaves left over from fall, the blower will blow them away from the collection unit faster than you can vacuum them up.
I know other people have this challenge. Has anyone developed a solution that reduces this problem? Has anyone gone to Superior Tech and gotten a response about this ongoing issue?
I love the integrated system that ties into the three point and is simple to hook up. But the fairly constant blowing of what your trying to pickup... Is frustrating. Overall well built product with a gremlin that is a pain in the a**.
