Q:

Bagger

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have looked up the bagger for your tractor. I assume you need the lower chute for the bagger. In the image below, the chute is key number 18 and the part number is 192574. The part can be ordered from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

If I have misunderstood what you are needing, you can look up the parts for the bagger by clicking the link above. I used bagger model number 917248900 to look up the parts. If the bagger is different from what you have, you can find the model number for your bagger on the mounting plate that attaches to the tractor. It might be on the side closest to the rear tire making hard to see.

If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
