2 Bin Bagger

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:easy to install, easy to empty the bags

Cons:tube clogs up, large box

The Bottom Line: I do not recommend it.


I bought this unit end of October 2006 and wanted to primarily use it for the fall clean up. Our half acre lot has several large trees and raking was always a pain.
The box the bagger comes in is very large, it barely fit into my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Assembly was very easy and I was eager to try it out.
The weather was warm and try for a week now, and it was time to get to work. On the first round it picked up the leaves and little bit of grass clippings pretty good. But the bagger was full just after a few yards. So I drove to the street and damped out the bags. Off to the next round I was! After just a couple yards the indicator stopped spinning, but the bags were still empty. This was my first encounter with the clogged tube. I took the tube apart and cleaned it out by hand. This went on every time I didnt catch the bags before they filled up or, if I forgot to empty the tube before driving off again. My disappointment grew with each round. I found myself more off the tractor than on the tractor. Remember that the tractor will shut off as soon as you leave the seat! It was a hassle. Cleaning the bagger was easy again, I just hosed it off.
Overall I think it was more hassle than anything else. I decided to return the bagger.
