    I used to have a small john deere with a bagger but have since traded it in for a front mount 0 turn that gets the job done in less than half the time but I need a bagger ....
    the bagger was good but would get plugged alot so instead of spending the cash on a bagger for my mower i was thinking of putting my old 210 to work pulling a 42 inch lawn rake/sweeper.
    now what i was wondering is there are a few out there but what should i look for so i dont end up with junk??
    John deere has one and so does sears also home depot ....
    do any of you guys use them and if so how is the john deere??
    or do i just buy the cheepest one ??
    sorry if i am in the wrong forum .
    thanks for the help

    I've got 4 husqie sweepers, they are heavy duty but pricier than the John Deere. I bought 4 john deere's, which btw are also sold in Home Depot around here, and I like the Jd's. There are a few weak points but not a deal breaker in opinion. Depending on how much you use it, you'll soon find out. The height adjuster needs a locking pin so it stays in place, the bag is well designed so when you're rolling stuff doesn't just fly over like the Husqie ones.

    Don't get the agrifab ones...unless you like junk. Too lightweight.

    Otherwise, the John Deere is always a good choice.
