The bagger assembly is 24966. The mulch cover is part number 145579. The cover only comes as the cover. You'll need to also get the hardware with that so it can attach. If you need the hardware, you can click the link below and use the model number to pull up the parts information and order the hardware (as well as the cover) from the parts site.

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I will be happy to assist you. I posted an image below that shows how to check the oil in the transaxle. Just click on the image to enlarge it. The best way I have found to access the transaxle, is to remove the draw bar plate on the back of the tractor. Remove the four bolts and the plate should come off. If the transaxle needs oil, I recommend adding 20W50 mobile one motor oil.

 

 

 

I hope this helpful. If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.
