I have a twin rear bagger on my John Deere X300, it goes ok accept when the grass is very wet or thick. You need to make sure they are on a regular schedule and don't let the grass get out of control. I am currently looking at adding one to my X595 which has a power blower so that you dont experience the blockages with wet or thick grass.

Remember to charge more for catching as you will be suprised at how much longer it takes to stop, and empty catchers. Also need to get rid of the grass. Last week from my Body corporate I got 19 Large Chaff bags of grass. thats 19 stops to empty both bags, etc. and a lot of tip fees.
