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 Lawn Tractor was built to last

  • 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

Great bagger
Very quick and easy to assemble. I just got done mowing for the first time this season. My yard had some leaves left over from last fall. The leaves and grass clippings fell nicely into the bins. As described, the left most bin fills first, then the middle, and finally the right most bin fills last. Extremely easy to remove the bags and empty them!

If I had rated this a year ago...
If I had rated this a year ago, after using the bagger for a month or so, I probably would have rated it as 4 stars. After having used it for a year I can only give this product 1 star. My first hint should have been when I had to have it delivered 3 times as the first two came with cracked tops. The catcher does fill from left to right as each bag fills. After time, the weight of the left bag has caused the left support pole to bend out. The support bars are not a heavy enough gauge to support the weight of full bags. This makes the catcher sit uneven with the left bag hanging lower. This has had several negative effects. First, the bag hits the ground when I go through even a gradual dip in the yard. This causes the bag to bottom out and be lifted off of the support bars and onto the ground spilling half of the bag on the lawn. Because the assembly is leaning down, the support bars are also leaning down which will also allow the bag to fall off. I had to use bungee cords attached to the bag handles to keep them from slipping. This also adds additional time to dumping. Even with the bungee cords holding the bags, I am constantly reaching back to pull the bags back into place. Finally, I noticed that a crack had started to form in the hard shell next to one of the hinges. As I was cutting last week, the entire shell cracked in half and the bagger fell apart completely. Other than these problems, it's been great. One other thing worth mentioning, I have a craftsman 42 deck with 22 horsepower. I would recommend only getting a bagger if you have a minimum of 22 HP. I don't think that a smaller engine would be very effective at pulling the grass into the catcher when it is high or damp. For $450 to replace this item, I think that I'll be going back to mulching.

Outrageous

A price of $359 for formed plastic is just nuts! The gasket for the tubes running into the bagger is weak and produces blow-back. Be prepared to be the dirtiest lawn person on your block after a year or two. WAAAY overpriced!

Triple bagger

I've been using the same 3 bagger on my yard tractor for 10 years. I have to say that the earlier model was more flexible the newer version than the newer version. The newer model cover cracks way to easy. So I went back to my older model cover. It doesn't break like the newer one. I changed my bags to the mesh bags. They seem to work a lot better than the plastic bags that came with the attachment.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Didn't last 1 year before arm kept falling off

Bagger worked just great at first. Then it started to fall off the side clips late in the first season I had it. Then the next season, it was so bad I had to abandon using it altogether. Everytime I try to reattach it to the side, it both barely fits, and then falls off after 2-10 minutes of normal use. Keep in mind, this is after using it without issue for the first few months, so all was attached and working just fine initially. I am not sure what changed/broke on the bagger, only that it refuses to stay attached, even with modification.

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Leaf clean-up

Did what it was supposed to do. Glad to have more capacity than the two bagger. Fit much better on the deck than my old one. Nothing exceptional, but nothing to complain about so far. (Except price was a little high, even on sale.) $84 for delivery is rediculous, so we had to drive 30 mi. to pick it up.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Leaves Beware!

Easy to assemble, easy to operate, and does a great job of collecting sucked up leaves, grass and twigs. Makes Fall lawn maintenance a cinch.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A Great bagger system

My bagger is for a 46" deck. It does a great job sucking up all leaves and grass clippings. The connections from the deck to the bin have no openings for grass and leaves to fall back on the lawn. The blades do not blow leaves away before the deck goes over them. My old rider would blow some leaves away before being driven over.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
