Simplicity Clean Sweep Twin Catcher Complaint - Simplicity Clean Sweep Twin Catcher
PORT WASHINGTON, WISCONSIN -- I purchased this bagger for my tractor on October 20, 2009. I have approx 1/3 acre with many mature trees so my purpose of this attachment was both to catch my clippings during summer time grass cutting and fall clean up with the leaves. While using the bagger last fall it was a waste of $465 plus tax and installation. The leaves just clogged up the discharge chute so I just assumed that this was my fault and that it was not designed to collect leaves. This spring as I started my grass cutting season it was obvious that the problem didn't lay with the material I was collecting but more so the design of the product. I spent more time cleaning out the discharge chute than cutting grass. After calling my dealer and demanding my money back, they simply offered to sell me a different blade with more "lift" to alleviate the clogging problem that I was experiencing. The new $30 blade does move the clippings along better but its no way perfect. I still continue to experience a clogged chute and get disgusted every time I cut grass. This product in my opinion in the biggest waste of $465 and I hate this product with a passion!
