Will 2003 model 917.249890 42" grass catcher fit on a 2011 model 28856 tractor?

I'm looking at replacing my 2003 LT2000 (model 917.273143) lawn tractor with a new YT4000 (model 28856) yard tractor. When I look at the diagrams of the model 24892 grass catcher for the new tractor is appears to be the same as my older grass catcher, model 917.249890. The mounting system appears to be the same and chute parts are the same part number for both items. I have recieved conflicting answers from chat sessions. Can you help? If I can use my current grass catcher that is still in great shape that's what I want to do. My 12 cu. ft. Easy Dump Cart trailer (model 610.243552) and 42" High Perforwance Sweeper (model 486.24211) look to be a universal fit and should work on the new tractor with no fitment issues. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thank you for your question.

I have looked up the numbers you have submitted. I think the bagger will work on the new tractor. Usually the biggest difference it the lower chute. The two models use the same lower chute. If you have any problems with the bagger, it will be with mounting. I cannot confirm if they have the same mounting because the mount changed on the new bagger. Please let me know if you have any problem with the way it mounted.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

If it does not fit you need the lower chute from bagger # 917.24979
