The Deck Adapter Kit includes:
- Universal Deck Adapter – This attaches to your mower deck to collect and direct the leaves into the Discharge Tube.
- Discharge Tube – A wire reinforced flexible tube used to carry the leaves from the Universal Deck Adapter to the Leaf Bag.
- Chute Vent Disk – the Leaf Bag attaches here and the holes help maintain airflow.
- Lawn Tractor Leaf Bag – The time saving bag for collecting leaves while riding around on your lawn tractor.
- Miscellaneous Hardware – to attach above components to your lawn tractor.
Checking the Fender Clearance:
You will need to check the fender clearance over your right rear tire. The Discharge Tube normally sits against this fender but may rub against the tire depending on your fenders position. If there are controls to your lawn tractor located in the fender you will need to attach a clamp.
The simplest type of clamp we can recommend is the Irwin Quick Grip clamp with a 6 inch opening. It clamps easily to the fender without drilling, comes with non-maring rubber heads, is easily installed and removed, the tube sits on the clamp bar, and it can be purchased at any hardware store (see below)
