Overview
 
The bagger kit can be set up without tools in minutes, provides efficient bagging performance, and has easy-to-empty bags. This is also commonly known as a material collection system (MCS).
Benefits
 
Bagging
  • Two durable bags provide a generous 6.5-bu (229-L) capacity.
  • The lower chute provides smooth airflow to reduce the chance of plugging.
  • A duct directs air leaving the hopper toward the ground for clean operation.
  • Loose-knit bags and a large exit duct allow more air flow to provide complete bag filling in wet grass conditions.
Emptying
  • Monitor bag filling progress through a window; see light coming through the loose-knit bag or watch for grass lying against it.
  • The hopper lid stays open while you empty the bags.
  • The bags slide out with a pull and the handles make emptying easy.
  • The hopper cover automatically latches when you close it.
Additional details
 
  • Front ballast is recommended when bagging, especially on hills or inclines. Follow instructions in your operator’s manual.
  • Use of rear tow-behind attachments that could contact the hopper assembly is not recommended.
  • Installation:
    • The bagger kit can be set up without tools in minutes.
    • Special mower blades are not required for bagging. Three optional high-lift blades (GX21785) are included to increase bagging performance.
    • The kit is easy to remove and stores compactly. No parts are left behind to interfere with other attachments.
The 6.5-bu (229-L) hopper and chute are for use with:
