    I bought a pair of dump bins for my MDD 9.5 Bushel. Used them once for about 20 minutes. Anyway, I paid $280 new and asking $250 since they are practically brand new. Selling because I am going to use a no catch deflector on most jobs. The other jobs I will just dump on a tarp. If anyone is interested PM me for more details. Thanks

    Are these the bags you dump the catcher into or the 2 bins that fit into the hopper?

    Thanks

    Yeah I read it. He said he would be dumping the walker onto a tarp instead of the bins. So are these the hopper size bins that you can dump it into or the bins that fit into the hopper dividing it into 2 sections?

    tell me your thoughts on the bins. i have been thinking of the purchase for a while now. why didnt u like them? do they spill a bunch of grass each time they are emptied? do you still have to put a tarp on ground to catch the spill?

    used them once. Some grass spilled on the ground when I first opened the door. For me it is not worth spending the money when I am going to use my no catch deflector. The market here is rough for price per lawn right now. I am not going to bag very many lawns to save time and money. I guess you could still put a tarp down or for the little that falls to the ground or you could just blow the grass clippings into the yard. Most of the people here are looking for the cheapest service possible so I am forced to change my ways. I am starting with only bagging a couple yards. So, I can't justify keeping these bins for the price I paid. If I can't get what I want for them I will keep them for a future need. Thanks. Hope that helps.

    they work pretty good,you do spill a little but one man can handle each bin to put into truck,otherwise you may need two people
