First, it took over a month to receive the bag- it kept saying it was back ordered each week. No instructions were provided but it was pretty easy to figure out. However, the bag is useless as there are multiple open slots/holes where grass shoots out of. That wasn’t the only concern...after the bag was only 1/3rd full, the weight of the bag caused the bottom to open up, in which grass spilled everywhere. So I would recommend not purchasing a new bag- $100 is way too much for a worthless bag...use that money towards a new mower that has a better bag design.
