Power flow bagger

5 posts in this topic

I sold my buddy my JD GX345. he was asking about a bagger and wondered if he had to have to power flow for the 48 in deck. I didn't know. I see that the homedepot models with a 48 in deck don't need it. He said he asked the dealer and they told him the decks are different and he would recommened the powerflow. But he never did say the other (way cheaper) wouldn't work.

I sent an e-mail to john deere and this was the reply:

Thank you for contacting our Web site. The power flow is not required to be used with the collection system for the GX345 or the L series. However, being that the GX345 was a premium model we offer the power flow as an option to the collection system. This option is not provided for the collection system for the L series. The high performance blower acts as an additional vacuum to help move the grass clippings. If additional power is not needed then the standard 7 Bushel bagger can be used. If we can be of further assistance, please call the Customer Contact Center at 1-800-537-8233.

So if anyone has used the $300 bagger on a 48C deck could you please comment if the cheaper bagging system works.

What is the difference?

Is one driven with a belt off of a spindle and one with another external engine?

The Power Flow baggers are belt driven off the deck with an impeller.

Non Power Flow is just the chute coming off the deck channeling the clippings into the bags. The blades on the deck do all work.

It's an extra you can get by without but one of those bells or whistles that's nice to have when the job gets a little tougher.

It should also aid in keeping the clogging to a minimum. If you bag all year or have a large lawn with a lot of leaves then the belt driven one would be a better choice. But just for an average yard to bag leaves two times a year, probably not worth it.

Any idea what the non power flow baggers cost for the L 111 series John deere would cost? Any chance of finding one used?

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
