easy to attach to riding mower. Assembly instructions could be a little more user friendly.

I have never used a bagger on a lawnmower before, so have nothing to compare it to.
I think this one is great. It fit perfectly onto my JD D130. I installed the mulch blade that came with it. It takes me longer to mow grass now, only because I have to keep driving back to the compost bins to empty the bags. They fill up fast. The only thing is that sometimes one bag fills up faster than the other, and there is only one notch on the shoot to adjust it. It was great in the spring to pick up dead leaves, and now green grass clippings.
The easiest way to tell when the bags are full is to reach back and feel them. The only time the shoot would clog up is when the bags were full. A clogged shoot is easy to clear. I like this bagger.
I am just starting a tree nursery and needed to start making my own compost. I have included photos.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Works great - doesn't chop up the leaves & grass like I thought tho
It's the same price as the competitors, seems to be up to John Deere quality. My only problem is that it really does not chop the leaves & grass but rather just seems to suck them up & through. So this time of year with all my leaves I am having to empty it all the time. Otherwise seems to work as it should, easy enough to install on my machine.

It works like a Vacuum Cleaner and easy installation!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jj5724 Poor performance regarding leaf collection
The bagger was fairly easy to assemble and install. However, if you have to pick up lots of leaves like my lawn requires, the bagger doesn't completely pick up the leaves as they are blown to the right of the mower deck which requires to go over and over the lawn to get all of the leaves. You need to feel the bags before they are completely filled or you have to unclog the chute. You can lower the mower deck to help vacuum more leaves but you run the risk of scalping your lawn. You also have to run the tractor at very low speed which helps but still too many leaves exit to the right of the mower deck. I wish John Deere would offer a baffle kit under your mower deck which could help. I do use the blades that come with the bagger but still have the leaf issue.

Bought bagger 2 weeks ago and finally got it today (had to shipped from manufacture....in the US). Instructions were some what difficult to follow but following the pictures made it much easier. Took about 45 mins to fully assemble. As the picture shows I had a bagger :) Does as expected works really well. Great product would recommend to everyone.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dwane Can't recommend
The instructions were fairly easy t follow and I had the entire thing out together in less than 30 minutes the problem is that the grass is constantly getting stuck in the tube and stopping the baskets from filling. I can see it happening with wet heavy grass, but it happens regardless of the circumstances. I have tried even cutting the grass at the highest level just trimming it, but it still gets stuck in the tube. Not happy at all with this product

This bagger works great. It can be a little tricky to install the first time but once you do its no problem. It picks up grass and leaves with no problems and the chute doesn't plug up.
