Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wvRickert I don't do reviews....
I don't usually write reviews, matter of fact this is my first one, but this bagger has made an incredible difference in my yard. I bought my Cub Cadet LTX1042KW two years ago. It did a good job but threw grass clippings everywhere. I upgraded to a mulching blade and mulch kit. This was better but I still had clumps of grass in my yard and grass all over my sidewalk and driveway after mowing. I kept reading reviews on this bagger and finally decided to give it a try. Purchased it on line because it was not in stock at my local store, and the price was the best I could find anywhere. Shipping and delivery was extremely fast, I had it at my front door in 3 days. The difference is incredible! After mowing my grass now looks like carpet and there is no mess on my sidewalk or driveway. I don't even need to get out my blower now. Yes it is a little pricey and I do have to empty it about 6 times for my 1/2 acre yard, but it saves time by not having to rake or use the blower, and my yard looks better than ever. Even my wife made the comment the last time I mowed, "That is the best purchase we have made this year!"

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ted3 This Bagger Made My Day!
Just purchased 42" Cub Cadet and bought the bagger. OUTSTANDING decision. The updraft blades effectively lift, chop and propel grass through chute into collectors. Bagger is easily assembled by one person, solidly attaches to machine and is well designed to tie into mowing deck. Can easily be removed without tools to check chute or to remove whole unit. I mow about 2+ acres. Quality materials suggest this unit will continue to perform for a very long time. Could not be happier! The lawn has never looked this good. Important side note...sharp updraft blades are a key to successful, systemic operation of bagger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jett Love the Bagger, Excellent air flow and lift to catch the grass.
I have had several lawn tractors with grass catchers, but this Cub Cadet is the best.

Excellent product after I removed the cardboard insert in the tube duh!!!! Easy on and easy off for storage! Two wing nuts!! Not sure how the foam tape protecting the tube from the catcher will hold up! Already starting to show serious wear from removing the bagger for storage!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rayfuss Works well even with (GASP!) wet grass.
Bought this for a XT1 42" Cub Cadet to maintain rental houses as well as personal residence. That's 3 acres of weekly cutting. Fast shipping, easy to assemble extra parts for several models included. Took about 18 minutes (after reading instructions and identifying all parts) to assemble & start bagging. I have not installed the mulching blades, so clippings are larger than walk behind with mulching blades. I don't usually bag my fescue clippings, but I have leaves and small twigs 11 months of the year. I bag the areas where the birch trees litter constantly. First try in damp grass (fescue one inch cut) was clog free. Not same for 3 inches of dry mixed grass at the rental property lower forty. It works great on leaves & twigs cutting my prep time (pre-cut blowing & raking) to zero. Same design issue as found on mulch plate. This part does not keep the air stream contained & properly directed. I foresee a redneck repair coming to stop clippings from spraying out the edges of the plug & from around the lower lip of decking. Does an excellent job of removing most of the clippings on the fescue lawns. I am anticipating even better results when mulching blades with higher lift are installed this fall. The two bags hold all the wet grass I want to lift and bottom handles on bags make lift onto the compost pile easier. I think the bags will last as long as the mower. Metal parts are thick enough to take some abuse & powder coated to resist rust. Has an extra 5/8" hole in lower mounting plate so I can pull a cart with the bagger attached on the XT1 42". I remove and store bagger and mounting brackets after each use. One wing nut at deck & one hitch pin at rear mounting plate make removal fast.
Overall I recommend spending the extra $ on this over a generic bagger.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TIna Not what I expected
Previously had a Sears Craftsman tractor and bagger for 13 years. This Cub Cadet bagger is definitely not as sturdy. Having a problem with grass not getting inside the bagger. It shoots out from underneath the deck and through the top of the bagger. The lid doesn't seem to fit snug or tight. There is no blockage in the chute. It was installed by Home Depot Tech.
Also worried that the seams will tear and it will not last because is not as durable as my previous bagger.
I called Cub Cadet who advised me to take it to an authorized dealer for repair. The dealer asked if it was purchased there. When I told him no, he said there would be a $100.00 pick up fee. He said he would check into finding out if the type of blades that came with tractor could be the problem and call me back. He never did.
