Comments about Zero Turn Mower Blower Assisted Bagger Collection System:
A better bag dumping system is needed. Turn off the blades, drive to the dump pile, shut the engine off, get off the mower, take the bags off, empty them, put them back on, get back on the mower, start the engine, drive back to where you were mowing and start the blades. Do this 20 or more times doubles the mowing time and is physically exhausting. I used to enjoy mowing. One solution is to have a second person waiting at the dump pile. Or, if you want to make a quick cleanup pass over the yard, just take the whole bagging system off.Yep - once you have successfully assembled the bagger don't plan on mowing without it. It is a huge deal to get it back off.The bag full indicator spins when the bags are getting full not when they are empty (duh - my bad but a sentence in the manual would have been helpful).You find out the blower is clogged when the drive belt burns up. You know this when you smell the belt smoking, gets so hot the pulley cover melts and eventually the belt breaks.You must be ultra careful when mowing around fixed obstacles. Smack the blower into a tree and you have serious problems.I have not figured out how to install the towing bracket so I just left it off. Whoops now I cannot pull the roller when I mow in the spring.To address the clogging problem when there a lot of leaves or the grass is too tall I have to mow twice, once with the bags off and a second pass with the bags on.Under light conditions, the unit does an excellent job of mulching and bagging.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

MZ 61" Blower Assisted Collection System
from New Albany, Ohio
About Me Professional
INSTALLATION - VERY CHALLENGING:1. This COLLECTION SYSTEM (966793) is not on the Husqvarna web site. Is this model discontinued?2. The instructions would be greatly enhanced if photographs were included. 3. Assembly instructions VERY difficult to follow.4. My bad - right belt drive pulley was reamed out. Good catch.5. Hacksaw trimming of the blower housing was required. Why couldn't this have been done at the factory? Trimming very difficult due to the pre-mounted Rear Mt Bracket.6. Next step required removal of the Outer Pulley Cover. Why? Oh - because the belt was installed inside out by the factory.7. Belt twists were belt confusing - ended up with twists on both sides of the idler pulleys. Very concerned about this???8. Attaching the Belt Cover Tab: a. The holes did not align. b. To attach the knob a nut or threaded clip is required but is not shown on any diagram. Part Number for this clip?9. Bag frame mounting to the mower: a. BEFORE you start this step it needs to be made clear that there are TWO options for mounting: - Mounting plates and nuts/bolts FOR BOTH are included - Two additional pages are included - You pick must one)\ depending on whether MZ61 model is "ultra" or not. Have no clue? - These page are NOT included in the web site version of the installation manual . b. A triangular is plate with two bolt holes and a hitch hole is included. Again, mounting instructions are no help.. - Looks like to mount this plate you have to take apart two bolts on the muffler heat shield. - Included is a 3/4 bolt and nut that is shown attached thru the existing hitch hole. No longer have the hitch hole??OPERATION SEEMS GOOD:1. Bag Dump Indicator does not spin during operation.2 Adds 18" to mower width.3. SEEMS VERY FRAGILE - hit anything and you can tear the entire unit apart.4. BAGS DRY GRASS EFFECTIVELY.5. LEAVES WILL BE THE NEXT
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Do-It-Yourself
This is a piece of equipment that I need when the weather is wet and the grass is growing, and it's too wet to mow. When that happens I mow and then a day or to later suck up all the clippings. If the grass is tall and has a high water content you're going to have some problems with jamming unless you go very very slow. I remove the tubes and blower unit when not using, after doing this a couple times it's about a 15 minute job to re- install the bagger. When it's been dry not a lot of rain, the bragger does a very good job. This is typical of any bagger systems on the market. I mow about 4.5 acres. It's easy to empty the bags and re-install them.

Comments about Husqvarna Zero Turn Mower Blower Assisted Bagger Collection System:
It was fairly easy to put together. Works well when it's working. The red spin thing doesn't spin unless the bagger is full. I am on my 5th belt in just 25 hours of use. I also had an issue with one of the bags falling out when first assembled. I took a ratchet strap and bent the rails closer together and haven't had a issue with that problem since.

3 Bin ZTR Bagger 966793101
I have a new MZ6128zt and I bought the 3 bin bagger 966793101 for it. This thing was not that difficult to install but you do have to trim the plastic where it meets the deck. I made a template from a piece of card stock to trace the curvature of the deck discharge and transferred it to the blower assembly. At fist use, it worked good even though the tube assembly looks like it was fabricated by a novice DIYer. The little red paddle wheel on the top tube that is,I believe, suppose to indicate air flow was a nice concept but failed. Most of the time it would not spin. A better idea would have been some sort of transparent window or see thru tube where it can be seen from the operators prospective.As for the blower itself, the belt started failing. It would come off the tension pully and you would never know it wasn't working. This was happening after I would place the belt back in place and activated the PTO. For something that cost me a Grand, I would hope it would work flawlessly. I took my machine back to the Dealer so that he could verify my findings and he agreed that this was not supposed to happen. They contacted Husky and apparently they know this and there is a repair kit for this " Driver Kit Blower model 580975901". I guess we will see if this works or not.I expected better from Husqarna

looks and ease of on and off
while i have not had this very long, it does seem to do a good job. but the looks and being able to get the blower unit off are very disapointing the tube always looks crooked and bent and doesnt fit properly in the blower unit. you dont always need to pick up every time you mow and to take it off and put on is not easy. and this big bulky blower hanging off the side is hard to get in the shed for storage and seems to bounce on the ground with the slightest bump, waiting for it to break off. my old bagger seemed to do a decent job at half the price. dealer not very helpful and was the only bagger available for the fab. deck
