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:
    • Special mower blades are not required for bagging.
    • The kit is easy to remove and stores compactly. No parts are left behind to interfere with other attachments
The Power Flow blower propels the collected grass and leaves into the hopper.
  • Contoured design gives a clean appearance and smooth grass flow.
  • The fan is driven by belt parts included in the kit.
  • The Power Flow blower cannot be added to a bagger kit that was not originally equipped with it.
  • The four-blade fan runs at about 3400 rpm when engine speed is full.
  • The system is lightweight for easy handling.
