I don't have a large yard but I'm emptying the bag 8-10 times at least for my front yard. I was just wondering if there is a bigger bag available for purchase?

My front yard is about 1000 sq ft and I usually empty the bag twice. I probably cut roughly an inch each time I mow. Back yard is about the same, maybe slightly bigger, and it needs 2 bag emptyings. I like the size because the mower does start to feel heavy when the bag gets full. Also, I think it gives the battery a chance to cool down a bit while emptying the bag.

In another thread, someone mentioned that if you take the bag off, shake the cuttings to the back of the bag. you can get more in it.   I have been mulching and haven't used the bag since the first time, so I can't offer an opinion.  The 21 inch model uses a larger bag than the 20 inch.  As to whether the 21's bag would fit on a 20 inch, I have no idea.

I push everything to the back of the bag and get it as full as possible. I do have the 21 inch mower

Hunter, I would contact Customer Service to see if there is another company that can provide a bigger bag for your mower. EGO mowers have different configurations than other mowers, but there might be one out there that can work for you ... good luck.

Im scared to ask, but why bag? Why not mulch it?

On this particular day after letting my lawn go longer than I should have, I filled the bag pretty darn good:

Perhaps a different lawn with shorter clippings wouldn't bag quite as impressively?  Dunno, but for me it's working well.

I really doubt there will be a larger bag option available.  One thing to note, since these mowers are fairly light having more grass hanging off the back could imbalance it, causing the front wheels to lift over bumps etc.

Good point on the balance issue.

We unfortunately do not offer a larger bag, Hunter. However, David is right in that it wouldn’t hurt to call customer service and see if they have any suggestions.
