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.

expectations exceeded - works like a charm even in damp leaves. Sears tight turn 42" tractor, fits like a glove. Wish I'd gotten this years ago, a real time saver. not one to write reviews, so pleased with this felt like i had to.
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.

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!
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.
