If you are looking for a neat and tidy looking lawn, the soft two bin bagger will help you achieve that 'picture perfect' look after every cut. The entire unit can be attached, or removed from the tractor in seconds, thanks to the design of the mounting system. The soft bins are easy to handle and empty - simply slide them in or out of the unit. They also use less storage space than hard bins. No more raking the grass, or leaves after cutting with this unit !

I like the bagger but am having a problem keeping the rubber ring in place that holds the shute in place. Anyone else have this problem and what did you do. Also it does fill the left side and very little on right. Over priced for this idem.

I bought this this week a little pricey but i love it,works great but you have to be careful on wet leaves as it clogs the chute but this happens on all leaf baggers ,great for home gardeners as mulched leaves can go into garden beds.

Comments about CRAFTSMAN®/MD 2 Soft Bins Bagger for Tractors:

I got this today. Installed it in under 5 min. fits perfect, works even better than perfect. It fills both bags over the top. By the time you notice the indicator wheel has stopped its to late the bags are over full and the tube is plugged. but simple to clean out. Wish I had ordered this years ago.

Soft Bin Bagger Experience

By 

from Pinawa, MB

Site Member

Comments about CRAFTSMAN®/MD 2 Soft Bins Bagger for Tractors:

Installation of the unit on the tractor was straight forward. There were no issues with installation. The unit functions quite well being able to pick up lawn clippings, leaves,etc. Emptying of the bags is easy although can be a bit dusty.

The only thing I have noticed is when the indicator says bags are full the left-hand bag contains notably more clippings than the right one.

          Comments about CRAFTSMAN®/MD 2 Soft Bins Bagger for Tractors:

          tips for keeping chute in good working order... keep blades good and sharp... make sure deck and catcher are kept clean . make sure the air intake around the mandrels are keep clear of clippings.. the catcher needs good air flow to work proper especially in wet lawns. Also the exhaust in the catcher has to be kept clean.. I like to use the soft bags so I can reach back and feel if bags are full.. the spinner will start spinning faster as the bags are full and if you don't wait for them to stop spinning you can empty before chutes fill up .

            Comments about CRAFTSMAN®/MD 2 Soft Bins Bagger for Tractors:

            I am very unhappy with my purchase. The grass chute for the unit is pooly designd as it only overfills the left bag and only fills the right bag partially. The discharge of the grass chut is too long and poorly designed to supply even filling. IF THE WHOLE BAGGER WAS MOUNTED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BACK PLATE OF THE TRACTOR INSTEAD OF THE RIGHT IT MIGHT SPREAD THE GRASS MORE EVEN. AS IT IS I AM GOING TO HAVE TO CUT THE END OF THE CHUTE OFF SO IT DISTRIBUTES THE GRASS MORE EVENL. tHIS WILL VOID ANY WARRANTY THERE IS ON THE UNIT. THE FULL INDICATOR ON THE CHUTE IS A USELESS ITEM IT WOULD BE BETTER IF THERE WERE A PLEXIGLASS WINDOW IN THE CHUT NSO YOU COULD AT LEAST SEE THEGRASS MOVING IN THE CHUTE. iF THE GRASS IS THE LEAST BIT WET THE CHUTE PLUGS SO DONT MOW UNTILL LATE IN THE DAY ON A HOT DRY DAY

                Comments about CRAFTSMAN®/MD 2 Soft Bins Bagger for Tractors:

                I found that it worked very well picking up lawn clipping and it's an absolutely great time saver in the fall, picking up leaves.

                I particularly like the 'Soft Bins'. It stores away in a lot less space then the 'Hard Bins' bagger, and does as good a job.

                My only complaint is that if I over fill the bins and the loading tube plugs up with grass clippings or leaves, the two sections of the loading tube must be removed and cleaned out by hand. There is a telltale spinner on the upper tube that warns the operator when the bins are full but by the time the spinner stops spinning, the tubes are alredy plugged.
