Yes. I use gator mulching blades during the summer. They won't bag a thing. The original/standard blades will bag some grass/leaves, if they are dry and not too dense, but they are prone to clogging. The high lifts work much much better.
I get mine on amazon. The shipping is free. LA145 48" deck. Part GX21785. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CAXMAG2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1#product-description-iframe
if you look up "john derre riding mower" blog or club, I'm pretty sure you will eventuality find a bunch of lawn mower enthusiast, with alot of time and resources on their hands. Most of the time you can find rare parts, paint, manuals and lots of extras.
Make and model are important and would help. Generally they are pretty simple. Some older models you had to bolt a mounting bracket to the rear corner of the frame and then a support slipped into the bracket. Some newer models have a drop in feature (these have rounded ridges on the back of the frame and have horizontal slots cut in them). On these the support bar simply drops into the horizontal slots then a swinging bar slips into 2 holes on the fenders to support the rearward hanging weight. The most important part is getting the right bagger model for your model. If it is a very old model that discharges grass out the back of the deck you may have a hard time finding a bagger at all. If you have a side discharge just make sure you are getting the right version for your tractor. If your tractor has a smooth flat back you need the version that has a bolt on mounting bracket. If it has the rounded vertical humps you need the newer version.
There could be a couple of reasons for a bagger not picking up clippings. One could be a clog in the ducting or in the air venting from the catcher (if applicable). Second could be worn out blades that can not generate the power to move the clippings to the catcher.
