      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Power flow bagger

Recommended Posts

I sold my buddy my JD GX345. he was asking about a bagger and wondered if he had to have to power flow for the 48 in deck. I didn't know. I see that the homedepot models with a 48 in deck don't need it. He said he asked the dealer and they told him the decks are different and he would recommened the powerflow. But he never did say the other (way cheaper) wouldn't work.

I sent an e-mail to john deere and this was the reply:

Thank you for contacting our Web site. The power flow is not required to be used with the collection system for the GX345 or the L series. However, being that the GX345 was a premium model we offer the power flow as an option to the collection system. This option is not provided for the collection system for the L series. The high performance blower acts as an additional vacuum to help move the grass clippings. If additional power is not needed then the standard 7 Bushel bagger can be used. If we can be of further assistance, please call the Customer Contact Center at 1-800-537-8233.

So if anyone has used the $300 bagger on a 48C deck could you please comment if the cheaper bagging system works.

The Power Flow baggers are belt driven off the deck with an impeller.

Non Power Flow is just the chute coming off the deck channeling the clippings into the bags. The blades on the deck do all work.

It's an extra you can get by without but one of those bells or whistles that's nice to have when the job gets a little tougher.

It should also aid in keeping the clogging to a minimum. If you bag all year or have a large lawn with a lot of leaves then the belt driven one would be a better choice. But just for an average yard to bag leaves two times a year, probably not worth it.
