Product Description

The Craftsman Soft Bagger 9 Bushel 3 Bin Lets You Maintain a Well-Manicured Lawn

The Craftsman 3 bin soft bagger for lawn tractor easily attaches to a 42 inch deck to quickly and efficiently collect grass clippings and leaves. Plus, unlike a typical bag system, you won't need to deal with individual bags – simply fill the bins up with clippings, lift, dump and refill. This bagger completely eliminates the need for manual raking. If clippings aren't collected directly after mowing, they can build up over time, compress and prevent grass roots from receiving the right amounts of water, oxygen and nutrients.

Easy-to-empty Craftsman soft bagger 9 bushel 3 bin collects up to a massive 9 bushels of clippings for less frequent dumping. Boasting a 50% larger capacity than a standard 2-bin bagger, this 3-bin bagger offers less frequent dumping, as well as less frequent stopping so you can get the job done in half the time. The top of the bag is designed for improved airflow, which results in fuller bags. Easy-glide design with built-in handles provides no-hassle clipping disposal.

  • Built by Craftsman, this Craftsman 3 Bin Soft Bagger For 42" Lawn Tractors was built to last
  • Fits lawn tractors with a 42 in. deck
  • 50% larger capacity than a standard 2-bin bagger
  • Improved airflow results in fuller bags
  • Easy-glide design with built-in handles for easy clipping disposal
  • Collects up to 9 bushels of grass clippings, leaves and debris
  • Simple lift, dump and refill operation
  • No bag required
  • Some minimal assembly required

They must have made improvements
This review is for the 42" 3 bin, not the 42-46 hybrid. I was hesitant to buy this due to some of the bad reviews but went ahead anyway. I have to say I have zero of the problems others have had. I was amazed how easy it was to install and remove when not in use. I don't see how the bins could fall off but would note that the instructions specifically state to load from the left to the right for proper bin overlap. Yea the bins fill from left to right but when you open it, at least the overflow can be rolled into the right bin before dumping. Not going to avoid this situation with any bagger system. There are 2 different mounting instructions to the mower deck. Mine was easy, the other involves an extra plate that comes with the unit. I am just using the original blades and the bagger works fine. It should go without saying not to try and bag wet grass or yes you will have clogging problems. I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend this product to anyone.

Love Hate relationship
I couldn't agree more with "If I had rated this a year ago..., May 19, 2008 By OneCraftyMan from Maryland ". Love it but hate the fact the left side bag falls off almost every mow. I have gotten used to knowing where it may happen now and I just move the end bag to the middle about every 1/3 of my .5 acre lot. I too was disapointed about the service I had from Sears because there was nothing they would do. Oh well, lesson learned...I do like having the baggers though.

NOT WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE

I had to replace an old twin cylinder 42" deck mower (see my 22HP tractor review) and wanted to keep my old hard bucket 3 bag catcher. The wife said just get a new one so you don't have to fool with making it fit. Spend over $450 (wasn't on sale) and had to wait 3 weeks and during that time we had the snow come down so I was too late in picking up leaves. The soft bagger came, packaged nice and looked as the old one which lasted me 20 plus years, so no complaints there. Until yesterday when due to the warmer weather (31 deg F) I had a chance to pick up the leaves from my lawn. The chute (part that fits the deck) would not fit. This chute is held in place with two rubbers mounted to it that you must clip to the mower deck. With two people this was unable to be accomplished. I ended up having to use a long bungee wrapped around it a couple of times and then hooked to the deck(back part). Secondly as soon as you hooked the longer hard hose part that goes into the bagger to the lower chute it would move the chute away from the deck leaving a gap for yard waste to be blown out instead of into the bagger. The plastic has not been formed right, I was very dissapointed but had to go ahead and pick up leaves/grass if I want a lawn next year and B-4 it starts to get wet and snow again. I say it again as mentioned in my tractor review IT BEHOOVES SEARS/CRAFTSMAN TO GET SOME QUALITY CONTROL. For the price you pay this accessory should fit flawlessly I now have to get out heat-gun and try to re-form the plastic so it fits. This will probably take me as long as trying to return this non-fitting part and getting a new non-fitting part. I rated this POOR due to the problems I encountered but when the unit does fit it would get 4 to 5 stars as it does work when it fits.

A must have accessory

If you can follow directions from a manual, you can install this nagger with no issues. While others complain that it's overpriced for an item made of plastic, it's actually a plus. The unit is light, won't rust, bags are flexible. 3 bag capacity is perfect for medium sized yards. I no longer use a blower for the sidewalks after mowing. Looks better than a job done by a pro. Once you have an attachment like this, you'll never want to mow again without one!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great bagger

This bagger is a great addition for us. We were disappointed because there were some bolts missing that we needed instead of waiting for replacements that never arrived, we got them off of another piece of equipment we had. We have a very large yard and it does need to be emptied often because of that. The shoot clogs alot if the grass is the slightest bit damp so alot of times we have to use our lawn sweeper instead to the bagger. Overall we are satisfied with this bagger. We love that it has the 3 bags and they have hanglesnon the bottom so they are easier to empty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
