This is a G-R-E-A-T product!!
Wife & I are severely limited to the amount of bending/lifting we can do. We have to force ourselves to do yard work such as raking. We were considering hiring someone to help with the raking & bagging on our roughly 1 acre yard. I figured the cost of the bagger vs. hiring someone would be close to the same, so decided to give the bagger a try. GREAT CHOICE! There must have been some serious design changes over the past couple of years, because unlike some of the complaints in previous reviews, I have to say that this baby went together flawlessly. It almost put itself together, that's how easy it was. Here's a clue if it doesn't go together for you ... Read The Manual! It's not rocket science. It fits well on my LT 2000. We lined the bins with 39 gallon yard bags. Wife raked oak leaves from under the trees & shrubs and I drove over the piles with deck settings between 3 and 6 depending on how much height I needed. I gave the lawn a quick once-over, checking the chute & bins frequently. No Clogging. The left bin fills first then the overfill goes into the right bin. If the left bin started to overfill, I would simply push some of the leaves/yard waste from the left bin to the right. Simple. Remove & replace bags, and we are set. We filled six bags in less than an hour (usually a full day exhausting job). Our yard has never looked better. We can't wait to get out and do some more. $300 seems a bit spendy, but it certainly saved us in the long run from strained backs and wicked bad muscle pain.

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.

This thing costs almost $300, and it just strapped on to the mower. I have the lts2000 and i cannot fully fit it to the mower deck.

Mulches more than bags

I recently purchased a house with 3/4 acre of grass, trees etc. I bought the riding lawnmower from the previous owner for $200.00 so buying this still was cheaper than if I had purchased a new one so I thought why not. Even tho it was 150% more than the actual mower. 1st off, it comes with 4 threaded bolts that seem to be for hanging the bagging system yet the lawnmower holes there don't have threads and so it is of no good. I used to the (2) silver bolts and nuts that came with it and put them diagonally in 2 of the holes and then used a strap to keep it tight. I found the rest of the device to go together fast however the plastic of the bins seem cheap and don't really lock in place very well. The back of the property that has field grass (thicker blades) just clogged the pipe. I am not sure if it would work if I was cutting less grass height and so I will try that later. I was only cutting about 2" off. The back yard close to the house has a thinner grass and that seemed to work ok. So in reality, when it clogs it just helps become a mulcher and not a bagger unless the grass is probably dry or thin and you don't cut very much off of it. Which of course is not my intent as I don't want a bunch of thatch and want nice thick grass. I will probably give it a couple more go rounds and see if it performs better before considering returning it

Bagger

I purchased a Craftsman tractor on July 23 and I like the tractor but has far as the bagger it is a piece of junk.The one I had for my old tractor is similar to the one pictured on this page. I could not put the pin into the bracket that it was supposed to go into.This is a horrible thing to have to pay nearly 300 dollars.As I said tis a piece of junk!

Bagger not functional for the mower I purchased.

The bagger is not of the quality I have gotten in the past when purchased at Sears. I am having parts made to modify the bagger to prevent it from showering me and the mower with grass. The bagger I received could not possibly be the one for this mower. They ordered a second bagger and it appeared to be like the first one. I am totally unhappy to pay that much money for something that will not work.

Great ad-on to my tractor.

Very easy to install. Looked at reviews and was happy to be able to order and pick up at the store. Ordering was easy everything went well upon picking up the unit. Assembly was easy and looks great on the tractor. Performed much better thabn previous unit. It did not clog and the soft sided bags made it very easy to empty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It's a bagger, it bags... not many options

Depending on the model mower you have, there aren't a ton of options for baggers. Might boil down to soft bag vs hard bag. I prefer hard bag for longevity and durability. Price seems high for what it is, but again, you don't have options.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
