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.

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.
I don't know y people are complaining about this product if they new how to use it it would work for them I haven't had any problems with the Bagger and it's so easy to hook up.
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!
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.
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.
