I didn't put 5 stars just because not being a vacuum bagging system it still takes a bit of work and understanding in order to have it working right but frankly this thing is great. I bought a brand new tractor at the sears outlets the DYS 4500 24HP from last year for just $1199, after using half day with satisfaction I realized that a bagging system was indispensable. I assembled it in 5 minutes and I found out that in order to have the maximum functionality you need to keep the blades system high. This way more air will flow-in and this will have greatly in order to avoid congestion in the tube. Yes the left bag fill first but once it is fool the second bag fills so don't need to worry about that. If the air flow is good the tubes will not get grass stuck in it. Mine attached PERFECTLY to my tractor, it is really tight. People complaining about this either have an older tractor or didn't do the right installation. When I was keeping the blades mid level I had to disassemble the tubes frequently but no no more. Grass is still short, actually looks better, I was cutting too short. In my opinion you have to have this. Your tractor will not be complete without this. I was able to pick up fresh grass as well as the grass that has been under the sun from yesterday cut. I forgot. I do have 5 acres and I cut about two with my tractor. Naturally 2 bags can be filled relatively quick but it is nothing compared to the work we had to do before.
51 yr old, 5 ft petite woman... It was suprising very easy to install. Easy stopped there! Twnety feet of mowing and I was covered with dust and grass. At first, thought I didn't have it installed correctly. Discovered debris was blowing through mesh bags. Putting trash bags inside mesh bags solved the debris problem. 3 minutes of mowing and the orange "bag full" indicator stopped spinning. Opened the lid and the left bag was full but the right bag barely had anything in it. Emptied the bags and started up again. Oops ... the chute was clogged up. Had a pile of grass clippings by the time I mannually cleaned out the chute. Another 3 minutes, another full left bag and clogged chute. After 20 minutes and dumping 4 times, called it quits (exhauting work in 100 degree temps) Will try making some adjustments next time to get clippings to fill both bags. If I can't get it to fill both bags before clogging, will pack it up and get my money back.
can't tell you about it it never showed up did get charged for it and shipping but it is overdue by a month and customer service has been little help. The same thing is listed again but cannot get it now because of no shipping available to my zip code
Previously used the pull behind sweeper after mowing to pick up the clippings. The bagger helps cut down the amount of time it takes to mow the lawn with easier disposal of clippings!
