I am new to the forum and wanted to start a NEW thread....don't know if I succeeded.

Here is my question. Does anyone here know where I can find a bagger for my 2008 ZTT i1042 cub cadet for around 250 bucks. I don't mind used. Have searched everywhere, ebay etc ...no luck

Welcome to MTF Zmanl! You are the 23rd i-Series owner on MTF since I started keeping count in late '08.

Looks like you both started a new thread (this one) and added a post to an existing one (unless a moderator copied your post over and made a new thread out of it).

FYI, to start your own thread you have to be browsing a forum (where you see the list of active threads) and then click the "New Thread" button.

Finding used attachments for the i-Series will be slim pickins because it's such a new product. The first model year was 2007 so there just aren't a lot of them out there yet, which means fewer numbers of each attachment out there, and the ones that are out there are relatively new so owners probably aren't looking to sell them just yet. That's one of the downsides of buying into a completely new product line.

I didn't bother getting a bagger for my i1050.. wasn't interested in paying the $350 or whatever for a new one and I knew I probably wouldn't find a used one very quickly. Instead I got a Cyclone Rake tow-behind lawn vacuum for leaves (or lots of clippings), and in general I use Gator mulching blades and a mulch plug so I usually don't even produce clippings to start with. Haven't missed not having a bagger.

In a pinch you can use a lawn sweeper. If you keep the mulch plug in (even without mulching blades), the clippings should fall pretty much under the tractor so the sweeper can get them in the same pass (if it's wide enough). If you side-discharge, you'll need to do a second pass with the sweeper to pick up.

If you're still interested in hunting around for a bagger that will fit, I'd suggest using SearchTempest.com . This is the new name for CraigsHelper, and it will search multiple CraigsList towns at one time based on a given search radius that you can specify.

Good luck, and again, :MTF_wel:

De nada. And thanks for the kind words. It's a great forum with lots of helpful people. I've certainly learned a thing or two from others here.:hatsoff:
