Enjoy an Immaculate lawn Thanks to the Craftsman 3 Bin Soft Bagger
The easily attach the 9 bushel 3 bin soft bagger for Craftsman tractor with a 54 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 3 bin soft bagger 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.

I was skeptical about a bagger because of all the bad reviews. I was very hesitant to buy it, but decided to try it. I was amazed as to how good it worked. It only took 10 minutes to install. Tried it with wet grass to test it clogging up. It never did and I put it through some tall grass at my regular cutting speed. I highly recommend this product and hope the ones that gave bad reviews check to make sure they are using bagger blades.
Easy to mount. Comes off easy to. I orded this and it fit perfectly on my 2013 Husqvarna GT54LS garden tractor (stamped deck). Got a better deal through Sears than the Husqvarna dealer plus earned rewards points. The only complaint is it blows dust all over everything including you and the tractor. Use a leaf blower to clean up the tractor and me afterwards. It came with 2 different style mounting brackets. Use the the one that does not fit your tractor application to mount bagger on garage wall when not in use !
Overall I am very impressed. It fills up quicker than I expected, but sure beats a rake and a bunch of blisters. I saw some negative reviews prior to my purchase, I would have to strongly disagree. It did clog up on me a few times, the leaves were damp though. It seriously takes about 30 seconds to fix that problem. I just shut the mower off, disconnected the upper tube and reached into the lower tube to remove the blockage and I'm off again.

Very easy to mount on Garden Tractor. Do not recommend placing plastic bags inside as the sewing seams will shred the plastic bags as you try to remove them. Use them with no plastic bags inserted. When full, remove baggers, set them on ground, slide plastic bags over the baggers. Make sure plastic bag reaches the ground, turn plastic bag and bagger over. Take hold of ther strap on the bagger, shaking the bagger as you pull it out of the plastic bag. Once the bagger is out, tie the plastic bag and reinsert the bagger into the bagger frame. I use ********** Members Mark, 39 gallon bags.
The big 3 bags made the choir of raking grass clipping and leaves a breeze. They are very to handle. Will recommended for all with a big yard. Just make sure that you use it when the debris are dried. Otherwise, these wet stuffs tend to clog up the chute.
Purchased two smaller Craftsman baggers previously and had no problems. Read the reviews and was skeptical about purchasing the larger 54 inch 3 bin bagger. Ordered it and the more I read the more skeptical I became. I returned it unopened. Tried an expensive off brand lawn sweeper. Ho hum! Used it once and started reconsidering. Decided if the Sears bagger turned out to be as bad as some reviews, I would pack it up and send it back. Some mentioned that the bagger hood material is flimsy and not up to par with older baggers. It's the same sturdy material that has been used for over twenty years. Some people had problems with assembly. Very easy step-by-step assembly. Some mentioned that the shoot gets stopped up with debris and at times in damp grass. Mine has NEVER clogged and I have put it through it's paces. For optimum bagging performance - use high lift bagging blades. It is worth the cost if you want something dependable and getting the job done right the first time.
Only have used it once so far, but was really impressed with the ease of use. Ordered this with my tractor and it came already installed so I was ready to mow when my tractor was delivered which is a big plus, was expecting to have to put it all together and install it myself, but they already had it done. Easy to pull the bags out and empty, and it holds quite a bit of grass, and having close to 2 acres, a big capacity is very nice!

Very nice bagger. I like the fabric bags, old one hand hard bins. You do have to move the seat forward to open lip completely on the GT6000. Great holding capacity and mounts easily.
After one and one-half hours of operation the unit is performing to meet all expectations. A better time frame might be after 500 hours and after 1000 hours.
