When mowing with my my 48V self-propelled it leaves “trails” of cut grass that the bag is not picking up; bag is filling ok but these trailing edges of cut grass are a problem that requires extra time to rake up. Is there a fix for this?

Mark, is this when pushing as well as pulling the mower, or only in one direction? Have you made sure the bag is not full?

If you have been using the bag on the mower for a long time you may find it necessary to wash the bag out. The bag will eventually get full of small clippings and grass debris, which limits the airflow through the bag reducing its ability to except clippings from the mower.

I washed my mower bag for the first time in two years a couple of weeks ago and noticed an immediate difference in airflow through the back of the mower.
