CAUTION: BEFORE ASSEMBLING GRASS CATCHER TO TRACTOR: • Depress clutch/brake pedal fully and set parking brake. • Place gearshift/motion control lever in "NEUTRAL" position. • Place attachment clutch in "DISENGAGED" position. • Turn ignition key "OFF" and remove key. • Make sure the blade and all moving parts have completely stopped. • Disconnect spark plug wire from plug and place where it cannot come in contact with plug. Care should be taken not to damage the parts and that the wheel spins freely at the beginning of each use. • If the grass catcher fails to pick up cut grass or leaves, it is an indication that clogging has occurred in the system or that the grass catcher containers are full. Usually this is indicated by the stopped movement of the full bagger indicator. a. Disengage blades, shift into neutral, en gage the parking brake and stop the engine. - Raise seat. Unlatch and raise cover. - Slide out containers and dispose of clip pings . - Replace containers, close cover, and latch. b. Unlatch chutes and check for clogging. - Remove all debris in chutes. - Reassemble and latch chutes c. Check to insure full bagger indicator has not become clogged. - The air passage hole must be clear of debris. Gently insert a small twig or wire into pas sageway to clear. Check the sides if they have got loose or cracked or may be not holding the bag as required then it may fall. Also check the frame if its bent or got bit loose then it needs to be re tightened and checked.In some cases it needs to be replaced. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query.

I canot get a bagger kit for the 54inch cut lawn tractor in UK, can a 48, bagger be fitted and altered to fit which I can get in the UK


I have never seen a catcher for this size of deck, Husqvarna do not offer one, i am sure the deck aperture is different from the 48" machine, if the catcher is available in the US, would they just supply the upper and lower chutes? the 52" deck produces a vast amount of grass, so will fill the boxes very quickly, you would spend more time going back to the dumping area than actually mowing, mulching would be a much better option, if you have to collect would a tow sweeper not be better, it holds more grass, and you would not have issues with poor draught, and grass blocking in the chute ( a big problem with noise compliant machines, and damp grass , and side ejection )

How do I install the grass collector


Assuming that you have the correct grass catcher..... Install the discharge deflector at the deck discharge. This is the smaller piece that bends 90 degrees. It will slide into clips on the deck when you have the deck's plastic deflector raised up. Next, install the bagging assembly. It's pretty straightforward. Lastly, install the plastic chute (tube). Push it in the grass catcher (bagger) opening, and then pivot it over the deflector and down onto it to seat it. Connect the straps.

Best regards, --W/D--
