Any thoughts, my power bagger on my toro 269h, 20 hp, keeps plugging up, it has a blower attachment off the deck, i generally use this over my septic bed, the grass grows really fast there, i have tried to let it dry but i never does over the bed area which is about 100ft x 100ft, raking it is not an option as both my shoulders are nfg, i was thinking of building a bigger blower and attaching it to a trailer, cause i am lazy and hate pulling off 3 bags every 5 min, at least im honest with myself ha ha ha !!!

The easiest solution would be to mow more frequently. good Luck, Rick

 If it has mesh for air exhaust on the bagger maybe it's partially plugged restricting air flow.

When was the last time the chute was cleaned thoroughly?  Old crude could be cause it to plug up.

Clean, then wax the inside of the chute. Sand down any rough spots first. Make it smooth.

Take the Bagger off, just run over the grass 2-3 times chop it up and push it off to the sides.

Like was said earlier cut more often.

Well i would like to have more seat time, i am not really lazy, just sick, 2 hours of seat time mean 2 days of pain and suffering, i try not to take the pain killers they gave me which are sythenic herion, really messes you up, but after being out on the tractor i have no choice, i try to only take them at night so i can function during the day, i will check the screen and wax the chute latter today thanks

Can you break up the mowing into short sections to avoid the pain? Maybe 20 minutes per day? I was laid off and found after 8 months that for the first time in decades I was waking up without pain. I now try hard to avoid pain. I hope that you can find a way to eliminate your pain and the problems that cause it. Good Luck, Rick
