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 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.

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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by mattjax Works well , BUT..
First of all there are many varied reviews on this unit and after reading the negative ones I figured customers were doing something wrong.
I installed the bagger and started mowing and YES the chute did clog up with grass. I felt let down and planned on sending it back.
Then I realized that my shortcut of not changing the blades and installing the baffle (?) may have been my undoing. I HATE changing blades because the bolts are always very tight. But after struggling with changing them and putting on the baffle the mower and bagger work perfectly!
The new blades have very high "wings" on them which "blow" the cut grass into the chute.
You probably can't cut really high wet grass with the bagger but why would you want to cut wet grass?
1) works great
2) easy to dump cut grass
3) excellent Cub quality - thick 1/8 steel
1) kind of a pain to install
2) very wide and won't fit on standard 6 foot wide trailers without removing the chute. (which only takes 30 seconds)
3) expensive !

Does a good job of picking up leaves, grasses, etc. The bottom tube, however, is cumbersome to get unhooked and dumped (it won't pick up unless this is done each time the bins are dumped) It would be great if the bottom tube had a handle to grab and disconnect with.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by joey clogs up all the time
clogs all the time and then you burn your grass by having the mower running on lawn when your unclogging chute.total waste been waiting for cub cadet to issue a new design muffler which wont burn grass

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly Works well but must go slow and make sure grass dry
I like the grass catcher but found that if the grass is over 3" high, the grass catcher gets clogged up unless you go slow and the grass is dry. Otherwise a good product and I don't regret buying it.
