I am getting close to purchase of a x750 with 60" HC deck. We want a large capacity bagger (6-7 acres) that is easy to take on and off. We have ruled out the bagger systems.
MC519 is a 19 bushel cart with the powerflow system. Is blower strong enough to push material to cart? What is complexity of blower removal? Does the weight of the blower require releveling of the deck?
MC542 requires separate cart purchase and no powerflow. The material flow is created by a gas motor mounted on the tongue of the trailer and it therefore pulls material from the deck. Capacity is 42 bushels. Is blower strong enough to pull material up chute and in to cart? Is the chute removal from deck straightforward and easier than the Powerflow? Does deck require leveling after taking on or off? What motor is used as the blower?
My DW does most of the mowing and will install/remove collection systems. The big difference is 519 May be more complex and 542 may be easier to install but there is a gas motor and capacity. The salesmen I have talked to at 3 dealerships say they have never sold either of these. Thanks
