Product Description

9 Bushel 3 - bin Hard Bagger for 42" deck. Fit Lawn tractors. The 3 bin bagger has 50% more Capacity than a standard 2 bin bagger which means less stops toempty the clippings.

Bagging is a clean and efficient way to collect grass clippings and leaves. The Permanexpolyethylene containers hold three 32-gallon plastic bags, or they can be used without bags. Thetop of the bagger is designed for improved air flow, which results in fuller bags and less stops. The easy-glide bin with built-in handles makes clipping disposal easy.

9 bushel 3 bin hard bagger
WOW!!!! I have hated raking leaves my whole life, and at 53 I finally decided enough. I had bought an L2000 tractor in the spring , so this fall I sprang for the 3 bin hard bagger. I can't beleive I let $1350.00 between the tractor, & bagger make me do all that hard work for so long. I kinda enjoyed mowing this summer, and than here came the leaves, well this deal makes clean up easy! I did my front yard on one dump, back on two. Now thats me dragging a tarp of leaves30-40 trips. I heavily reccommend you buy one, and watch out the window as your neighbors spend a whole weekend cleaning,and the following week recupirating from back strain! You will not regret this buy, although you may resent waiting so long! LOVE MINE

This unit will not hold up under significant use
I mow two acres and I bag the grass every time I mow. I bought this unit but after 1 and a half Summer's use it has basically fallen apart. There are minimal welds on the area where the arms that hold the bags attach to the unit that bolts onto the back of the tractor. After bouncing around for a Summer or two with the weight of the bags of grass on the back the welds fail. You first notice the top will not stay latched on the buckets keep falling off the back and dumping the grass on the lawn. Closer inspection will reveal the welds have broken causing a great deal of movement and flex which pops the top off the end of the arms and buckets fall off. The collection chute attaches poorly to the mower deck and shuffles out of place. It does tend to clog and the wheel that is suppose to show you when the bags are full stops spinning randomly when the bads are not full. The plastic buckets also fail with repeated use. The top portion of the bucket, which you have to assemble when you get it, fails to stay in position as the small retainer pieces start to fail. You can still use the buckets, as the bottom will hang from the top but the two pieces become two pieces, not a bucket. I used a bagger on my Statesman tractor for 12 years and never had a problem. When I bought the new Craftsman mower and bagger the bagger did not last even two years.

Huge capacity bagger for a 42" mower!

This is a big bagger for a 42" mower. The added capacity works great for those individuals who do not like to repeatedly stop and empty bags. It installs easy, one can be using it in about 10 minutes right out of the box. This bagger is made of rugged plastic materials so it can withstand some abuse, moisture, and heavy use, and still last for years! There is a gauge/wheel on the tube that let's the user know If the bags are full or if the tube is plugged, as long as it's spinning you are in bussiness! The bags are very easy to empty, simply pop the large plastic lid and slide them out, the tip them over! Easy! The bags also fold nearly flat for storage during the winter. The bagger can be remover from the machine in less then 3 minutes. Very nice design, a must for those who wish for a perfect yard!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

happy so far

My experience in ordering the bagger on-line for pickup later the same day was excellent. It took about 30 minutes or so ( my wife helped) to assemble and start using it. It worked very nicely for picking up leaves, although it takes a few minutes to get used to the bag full indicator. This is the best $349 I ever spent. No more leaves to rake!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

3 bin bagger

This bagger works great! I originally bought a 2 bin but it filled up to fast. It works great! My 42 in mower grinds up the grass and leaves. Guy Next door he puts out 6 bags to my 3. Works great!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best invention by man!

4 years ago we moved into our home with a half acre wooded lot. For the past 4 years I have used a blower and rake to clear the leaves in the fall. Each time it would take me 3 evenings after work to do the whole yard, only to have to redo it all over again 5-6 more times before the last leaf fell. This year I said enough. I went online, where I found this beauty on sale. It is the best decision I ever made!!! When I got it home I had it hooked up and ready to go within 15 minutes. I had the entire half acre lot cleared in under an hour and a half! Plus I didn't feel like someone had just put me through a meat grinder. The only time the chute clogged was when I let it go too long before emptying-and even then it literally took 10 seconds to clear out! I'm definitely glad I went with the hard bins-no dust and easy to empty. I have had no problem with the bins filling as mentioned by another review. After fighting with my lawn for the last four years-I now actually enjoy clearing up the leaves! I even help my neighbors do their yard, too! Best invention by man!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I purchased the 3-bin bagger and absolutely love the way it cleans the clippings in my yard. I am female and it was simple to assemble & attach to my mower. I think choosing the "hard" bagger was a good idea. The mesh bins would be too flimsy to handle when full and might rip & tear. I give this product a 5 star rating!!!
