Q:

Grass catcher fit which mowers?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to use the old two bin bagger on a new tractor.

We have changed manufactures of our Tractors in recent years so your bagger will not fit the new ones.

Even if we had not changed manufactures the old supplier had changed the design of the tractors enough that the old bagger still would not of fit.

You would have to purchase a new bagger also.

While the bagger is very similar to the new bags the mounting brackets and the chute attachments are different.

Q:

Installing this catcher on a new lawn tractor P/N(07128852000) M/N: 28852, how can this be done? 917249491 Craftsman Grass catcher

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the bagger and it should mount to the frame the same as it did on the original tractor. The only problem you may have is with the lower chute. Over the years, the discharge opening has changed slightly. If the lower chute does not match, you need to order chute number 405455. Craftsman bagger parts . The part can be ordered from the following link. Click here to load the instruction manual for the bagger.
I hope this is help. Please let me know what you find.
