It has surpassed my expectations! Your skill and design have made a truly excellent replacement bag. The zipper on this bag and the materials chosen to create it are well above industry standards! Keep up the great work. You have delivered exceptional value.
Best wishes to you and your family, Mike Moseley. It is not often someone takes the time to tell me how happy they are. I have beat the hell out of my two prototype bags. So I do use this bag also.What I love about it the most is I can see through it to tell how full it is when doing leafs or wood chipping. Using feedback from customers I made some changes. I have had a few customers try these bags for me first on there machines then I have used these bag on my own machines last fall.
My customers and I feel it works great. The first change was to the material. As you can see in some of the pictures you can see through the material from the outside. This does make it a little more dusty.
One of the 3 customers that tried it said it was more dusty. I think about the same as a new bag from Troy Bilt did.But this was a requested change from many of my customers. It is a little bigger than the original so it will fill up more If you look at my pictures you can see some of the pictures you will see through the gray and white mesh fabric. If you feel you need one with out any defects like the defects you see in the pictures send me a question and I will try to find one with out the defects for you. I also was told they wanted the elastic a little less tight to put on. So I replaced the shock cord with a little smaller cord and cut it a little longer. Everything below was from my listings a few years ago. NOW I HAVE 2 C O L O R CHOICES WHITE and EGG SHELL & 2 LIGHT GRAY COLORS 1 on bottom 1 on side DARKER BLUE GRAY TOP. I MADE THIS BAG A LITTLE LARGER THAN THE ORIGINAL (Troy Bilt part # 1901482) It is made from COMMERCIAL GRADE MATERIAL. My bags are made from the blue gray and 2 lite gray colors COMMERCIAL FABRIC using all new materials with a MUCH LARGER nylon zipper with 2 METAL zipper pulls. (see picture of my zipper pulls next to the zipper in the old Troy Bilt bag) I have a picture of my 1 Troy Bilt chipper vacs 1 with the new bag on (1993 5HP model# 47279) as MODELS ONLY TO SHOW THE FIT AND MACHINE TYPE IT FITS (THE MACHINES ARE NOT FOR SALE) ONLY THE NEW BAG. THESE OTHER MODELS ARE LISTED AS HAVING SAME TROY BILT BAG PART# 1901482. # 47260 (5hp) # 47261 (5hp) # 47278 (4hp) # 47279 (5hp) # 47280 (4hp) # 47281 (5hp). # 47282 (5hp) # 47283 (5hp) # 47286 (8hp) # 47287(8hp).

ABOUT ME I was a upholster by trade. Now more of a hobby. You may have seen or bought the black bags from me in the past.Every one of these heavy duty bags is cut by me and the sewing is done by me I also fit test every bag. So you may find a leaf or 2 in your new bag.
Now you will know why. If you see something I can improve on let me know. I have heard from a lot of people that bought the black bags that they wanted a more heavy duty zipper.
Then the next thing they wanted was a bag that will LAST LONGER. Then this is that bag you always wanted. You will NOT be disappointed. The fabric is so strong you can make a cut in the fabric then just try to tear it.I really did not think there would be a market for these higher price bags but my wife talked me into making some and listing them. Then the second one almost 4 hours after the first.
My wife is starting to rub it in. I cut no corners when making these bags.
