Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/old Sabre attachments


QUESTION: Any suggestions on how I obtain an entire bagger assembly for a Sabre model 1742HS?

ANSWER: Did you call and ask your local John Deere dealer if they can order a bagger for your mower?


---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: I DID ask my local dealer, and they told me that my Sabre is 15 yrs. old, and JD D/N make attachments for them any longer. I'm having a difficult time finding one on the internet. I have now considered buying a "leaf-bag" that I found on the web. But I would still need to find a bagger post and hanger, apparently.
Thanks for your quick response. Sounds like I need to "jerry-rig" something. If only I were "handy". lol

I could not find a bag kit for your mower either...just thought is may have been an accessory that JD only sold through JD dealers as JD does not share much info with non-JD dealers.

Here is a grass bag kit on Ebay for Sabre, $440.00 delivered to your door.

If you have any questions about this part contact Bomberger's at 717-626-3301.  I've ordered parts from them before and they are very helpful.

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
