Great for leaves if you know the secret!

This is the greatest attachment for a tractor ever. I have owned one on my 42 inch 15.5hp tractor for 10 years now. It's great for picking up grass clipping, durable, and with the secret you can pick up a yard full of leaves The secret is this: Take one of the bins off, and put the bottom part away. Get a 45 gallon drum liner bag and put it in the top part, using it as a "frame" to hold the bag. Drape the edges of the bag over the edge of the frame. Then put that in the left side (looking from rear) and put the other bin on the right side. Then mow. You will fill a 45 gallon bag of mulched leaves. When full pop it off and put another bag on. Repeat..... So there you go. Enjoy!

2 bin hard sided bagger

Cheap plastic not very durable. Chute became separated from the mower within two month because mounting studs vibrated loose causing bungee connector to come off. SEARS DID NOT STAND BEHIND THE ONE-YEAR WARRANTY. I spent three hours on the phone with customer service, parts, and warranty people and the end they told me to take it to a Sears store. Took it back to the place I got it, and they said they would not honor the one-year warranty because I did not buy the extended warranty agreement. They told me to take it to a Sears Parts center. Not happy with treatment. Might be my last major purchase from Sears after $5000 worth in the past three years.

Fitment, BEWARE


While the description and specs of this says "fits 42" cutting decks"... That is false. It does not seem to fit my mower, that has a 42" cutting deck. Very misleading.

Make sure you do extra homework!

Works well but...


The bagger works good BUT only one bin fills up as the shoot to the bins faces only one bin and doesn’t fill the other bin much, is disappointing that way, should have one larger bin instead of two, would work better ...
