Rated 4 out of 5Â by JonD Baggers are Better than Raking!
I have about a one acre yard and have been using this bagging attachment for about a year. So far, so good!
Here's what you need to know:
1) It takes two people to install. One person to hold the attachment up against the Cub Cadet while the other mounts it in place.
2) The bags fill up fast. This isn't a complaint - just a fact. If you're using it primarily in the fall as an alternative to raking, give yourself plenty of time to stop every few minutes to empty the bags.
3) There is a cheap foam gasket used to hold the upper tube in place. It was ripped to shreds after the first couple uses but hasn't seemed to cause any legitimate issues (yet).
4) People complaining that they can't see how full the bags are simply need to pay attention. All you have to do is reach back and poke the bag from time to time and you'll get a feel for how full it is. Be warned - if you DON'T empty the bags when needed, the whole chute will fill up with grass and leaves and you'll have to take the side tubes apart and dump those along with the bags. It's frustrating the first couple times it happens but once you start paying attention, you'll know when the bags are getting close to full.
Overall I definitely recommend getting a bagging attachment if you have a riding mower. This is the only one I've used but it seems to do the job just fine. There really aren't a lot of options for specific mowers so don't waste to your time researching alternatives. If you have a Cub Cadet mower with the 42 or 46 inch deck, you're going to get this bagger. The alternative is some weird looking gigantic bag that drags behind the mower but I can't imagine that works well.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Trina What a time saver!
I bought this for my husband's birthday in mid-October well before anyone knew Hurricane Sandy would be hitting. We are now cleaning up in the aftermath of the storm and this bagger is a lifesaver. It easily attached to the mower and despite the crazy amount of leaves and debri from the storm, it easily cleaned a path through the mess. Such a timesaver with free shipping and fast delivery too. I only wish I bought it sooner!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jrag Works better than expected
Install was OK once we got the hang of it; then mowed the lawn which it picked up everything and had to empty it more than expected. Now picking up the leaves, is awesome! so easy! and really does a very good thorough job. Son borrowed it for his Cub Cadet and hope he gives it back!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Tark Could hold more
Easy to assemble and install. Easy to unload. Capacity is ridiculously small. If needed to bag leaves, I probably wouldn't buy it based on size.

Easy to assemble. Bought it for leaf cleanup. Sucks up everything. Wish the bags were bigger.
