The first thing that comes to mind with that design is how to convert that grass catcher to a cooler. :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

They were listed on the site when I was researching my LT 150 a couple of years ago. I don't know how long before that though.

MowHoward,

I don't know how old/new they are, but they have had one at my local JD dealer for a while. Rear "bag" is plastic with air filled type accuator rods for a more solid feel when opening and closing the container.

If your interested, I'll try to get there tomorrow and get some pics.

these things are copies of the jonsered machines sold in europe -- these are even sized in cm and mm - european mowers - you can buy the jonsered ones in the usa as well as the jd versions -- they don't sell well around me in illinois

I went to my local JD dealer today and took some pics of the LTR180 rear bagger tractor.

You can see the low profile of the LTR compared to the standard bagger next to it.

The clippings exit the deck under the seat. Again, a nice clean profile.

This is with the bagger (actually a solid plastic "bucket") looks when it's open. A single knob unlocks the bucket. Notice the difference in the bagger profile of the standard unit behind the LTR.

This is a pic of the rear of the LTR with the bucket closed followed by a pic of the bucket open.

Lastly, the rear discharge chute at the back. pulling another lever releases the bucket so you can pull a trailer or other accessory.

Interesting little tractor, espcially for those with a smaller yard that only mulches.

I agree, Greg, and thanks for the good camera work. Can the bagger be emptied from the operator's seat, or do you have to get off the tractor?

I guess one good thing about the rear discharge is you can cut close to ether side of the tractor.

MowHoward,

To unlock the bucket you pull on a knob located to the right of the driver on the back mounting plate. You can see it in the top right corner of the last pic. You can also see it to the right of the seat in the first pic. However, after dumping, I think you have to get off the tractor, push down on the bucket to lock it back in place. It might be possible to do from the seat but I didn't try it.
