    I think they do recommend the front weight set for the 1 Family. I think for the 2 Family, is is fine without, but they are a little heavier and a little longer. I will let you know what it feels like with a load of heavy, fresh spring grass in a week or so.

    I was looking through the manual for the 14 bushel MCS the other day. It states that no front weights are needed if using a 1 series tractor. If you are using a 2210 or 2305 you need weights on the front. I've found I need at least five weights on the front with my 1025r and the 14 MCS.

    So the wiring harness connects to the fuel pump? Here I was thinking it would plug into the 12 volt power plug on my 1025r.

    Thanks for the update Randy.

    Yes, the connection is at the fuel pump. You uncouple the existing connection, the harness basically makes a Y. Reconnect the fuel pump, the new harness splits off and makes another connection for the bagger wires to continue on to the dump switch.

    Sounds like an "easy button" plug and play setup - nice!

    It was a well though out system. I like that!! Makes it easy for guys like me who are a little nervous about tapping into wires, etc!

    So I did a little mowing with the hopper last weekend. I went over the whole yard and didn't even fill it full. Great capacity, but also understand we are not fully in the growing season yet so the grass is still a bit weak. Let me tell you, it sure was a quick and easy empty, though!!! Drove into the tree row, hit the button and it was over before I knew what happened! The way the bottom opens completely ensures a quick and clean dump.

    I am very impressed. Once the grass volume picks up, I will get you some pics and maybe a short video of the dump.

    I have been using this hopper exclusively now for a couple weeks and must admit I really appreciate not getting off to dump the bags. I have been mowing twice a week lately ( I don't know what to do with myself since the kids are getting older) therefore have not maxed out the capacity. I am covering the whole yard and end up with about 1/2 a hopper full. It dumps cleanly and efficiently and very quickly. I am trying to get better about feathering the hopper open and driving so as not to end up with just a big pile of clippings in one spot. However, if you want it all in one spot, it will do that just fine!

    It is very easy put on and take off. No complaints here! I would give it a big !

    Could you send a photo of it from the "passenger" side so I could see the chute and power flow. My biggest question is I was thinking I needed a pto driven vacuum pump so I could could vacuum piles of leaves instead of drive over them but sometimes I think I would like just buying something and not modifying it.

    Great post. Thanks for the info. I am considering one of these next spring. With the 3 point dropping when you lower the deck, does it cause the MCS hopper to hit the ground? Or do you have the separate hydraulic mower deck option?
