THE BAGGER IS A PAIN IN THE--- TO HOOK UP THE CHUTE I HAD TO HIRE A TECHNICIAN TO HOOKUP THE CHUTE ON MY CUB CADET 50" AND I AM CONSIDERED TO BE A VERY GOOD AUTOMOBILE MECHANIC THE LAWN MOWER TECH DIDN'T KNOW WHERE ALL THE SMALL PARTS WENT AND THERE WAS QUITE A FEW PARTS ,AND BOLTS LEFT OVER.THE MACHINE ITSELF IS GREAT.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve This bagger does not function properly.
When I received the product, I was missing the manual and 2 parts. When I finally received those parts, the installation took less than 2 hours. I have only used the bagger 3 times, but I have been extremely dissappointed in this product. The chute constantly stops up even though I have tried to only use it when the grass is dry. I do not know if the flaw is in the design is or a power assist bagger is needed for Z turn mowers, but the performance of this model is poor,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DKLC Terrible Bagger. Should be Recalled
This is absolutely the worst piece of yard equipment I've ever bought. You'll be lucky to mow for five minutes before it plugs up. Even if you are mowing dry leaves, it tends to plug. I can't believe this was properly tested by any MD engineers.
As a service to its customers, Home Depot should stop selling this bagger until MD can re-engineer it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnN Difficult to attach/assemble and plugs up easily
I had several difficulties assembly/attaching the bagger, including having to drill special holes in the back frame of the mower to attach bagging frame. Putting the weight on the front and the small plate inside the mowing deck together required a lot of main frame disassembly, so once you put this on your mower, you are committed, as it is not easy to take it all back off if you are not satisfied. Once I finally got it all connected, the shoot didn't fit the deck very tight, allowing air to leak out the sides, which is probably why the shoot plugs up so often. With the airflow compromised, I have found that the grass, even when dry doesn't push up through the shoot as efficiently as I would expect for spending nearly $500 on this attachment. When dry, on 1 acre of mowing, I can expect the shoot to plug up 1-2 times. When slightly damp, it is almost impossible to mow, as it will plug up on every round I make--mowing a mix of bermuda/fescue. I think my record for plugging up during a normal 1 hour mowing is 9 times! I have been very disappointed, as all the benefits of a ZTR mower for time savings have gone away due to the number of times I have to stop, disassemble the shoot (2 pieces), unplug by hand, reassemble shoot, then mow back over the area where it plugged up again...and this is with me mowing twice a week, on the highest setting, so the grass isn't that tall. If I go a whole week without mowing, I can expect a lot of frustrations with the system plugging up. Presently, I am considering selling my Cub Cadet 50" ZTR and returning the bagging system as it has made for a LONG summer of mowing, which i normally enjoy doing. Very disappointed in this accessory. Some serious engineering modifications need to be made to this after market add on. I have loved my Cub Cadet and have mowed with this brand for 20 years, so you can imagine my disappointment in how they'd put out a product like this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Excellent bagger and never clogs
I've used this bagger extensively on my Cub Cadet 50" tractor on everything from 1 foot tall grass in an old horse pasture to nice lawns. It works phenominally well - it never clogs because of the 8" chute (not 6" like other brands), and it fills all bags completely, even with wet grass. It picks up leaves, debris - you name it. It's easy to install also, I have my son do it. Couldn't be happier.
