I have an older used 40" Murray riding lawn mower I bought last year. I'm looking to get a bagger unit but the cost of the recommended Murray bagger (Model 24744) is anywhere from $400 to $500, which is significantly more than what I paid for the lawn mower.

Home Depot sells some generic baggers (38" and 42") for around $300. Is it possible to get one of the Home Depot generic baggers and try to use it on my riding mower? If yes, should I go for the 38" or the 42"?

Or are there other baggers that I could purchase to use on my 40" tractor?

Any guidance on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

I'm sure some mods would have to be done to make it work. The two biggest issues I imagine would be mounting the rear bagger bracket unto the tractor and then the even bigger issue would be connecting the chute tube to the deck discharge. I looked at Homers site to see the bagger set up but only saw a generic bagger for Husqvarna built tractors?
