Our craftsman garden tractor model no. 27603 doesnt fit a bagger!

Why does the craftsman garden tractor model no. 917276030 not accomodate a bagger?? We are in desparate need of bagging the weeds as they are mowed so that they don't re-seed and more importantly, we have dogs that are suffering from the burrs and foxtails. Please help me find a bagger that goes with a similar model so that we can buy it and modify it to fit our garden tractor. Please help asap. Thank you. Janet Worsham Ramona, CA 760-789-8486

ALL craftsman side-discharge tractors can accommodate a collector. If you can't get one specifically for your model, a universal one will fit.

It takes the form of a couple of plastic bins fitted to a frame that is mounted on the towing eye on the back of the tractor. A large diameter tube runs from an adapter 'boot' that fits over the discharge opening, to the bins on the back.

I'm in the UK, but we sell loads of these kits. SInce they come from the States, it shouldn't be a problem.

Inspect the inside surface of the discharge tube. If you do not find any hangups, then I would wonder how fast you are mowing. If you are going full speed, I would recommend that you slow just a little. I was just thinking, have you been doing the same thing for a long time and recently have this problem develop. So, give good inspection. I do not know what type of bagger you have, but is the air able to escape the bagger, if it is not then it sets you up for a clog. If you can not find anything on detailed inspection of bagger system, there are sprays for under the deck of lawnmowers to minimize the chance of grass clinging to the underside of decks, you could try applying that to the ducting of your bagger. I hope this is helpful.

I modified my John deere with a chute from another mower into my cart, It works great and picks up 10 times more trash than regular bags, you have to use the pick up blades, I just fill up the trailer, and dump the whole thing in the burn pile. Then go get some more. Believe me, i could run all day and not clean the whole yard. The pick up blades have some power but they do get clogged now and then, i just unhook it from the deck and dump it out and get going again. Hope this helps.

Cut grass clippings does not get picked up by riding lawnmower

When using a bagger, you need correct blades on mower or Worn blades will cause the deck not to get the vacuum needed for the bagger to pickup.
