not to hijack the thread but how much did it cost you to build? I'm thinking of doing a 12x12

Haha! 10x10 might hold all of our Christmas decorations!

I'm thinking 12'x14' or 12'x16' with a large door for ZTR on one side and maybe a man door on another side - doors = lost storage space though.

Something that size may be too expensive as a pre-built, so I may do it from scratch.



This waiting is driving me nuts. I have to wait until WEDNESDAY to get my mower!
All I have is the owner's manual and the spare key. I told my wife I want to wear it on a necklace to keep it close to me.
She thinks I'm retarded.

I built mine from scratch ,it cost me $1000.00 to do it but I live in Canada .2X8 floor joists ,2x4 wall studs and 2x6 roof .I used 4x8 hardie board siding ,and a 36" steel man door .I still have to trim the corners , install the flooring [probably the garage floor stuff from costco ]and install the soffit and fascia but I probably wont get going on that for another month or so .
10x10 was the biggest I could build without a permit ,I can build several more if need be ,and I also have a 10x20 garage ,a 24 x 20 garage [needs to be replaced next year ] and a 36x 18 carport ,but I needed this shed to hold my plate tamper,post hole auger ,whippers ,pushmowers,chainsaws,ladders,portable air compressor ,snowblower ,sod cutter ,job box ,along with my renovation tools ,all of which were in my way in my other garages .Everything goes through the door easily ,but since I have been super busy ,it is a complete mess .

I built a 12x16 for my brother-in-law a few years ago ,the materials cost a little over $2000.00 , honestly I would rather just build a single car garage [12x20]for very little more $$$

You are correct it is the same thing as a poulan ztr. But I do not remember off of the top of my head if they are currently making the craftsman ZTR mowers. I think MTD is now making some of them and they also have Snapper mowers rebranded so who knows who made a craftsman mower right now. It is a consumer mower but it should still outlast a consumer tractor and cut faster so good luck.

Maybe one of you "parts guys" can help?

The salesman said they have a bunch of baggers in the warehouse that the mgr wants gone. "If I can get you one that works on that mower for 70% off, do you want one?" he asked.

If I had to guess, 99% of what they have will be for tractors and/or for CRAFTSMAN mowers in general.
I tried looking online for a bagger that works on this ZTR and so far, I'm just seeing the Husqvarna bagger.

I DID locate THIS on the Sears website, but it scares me that it doesn't note specific MODELS.

If anyone has any way of determining if that Sears unit works with my ZTR(RZ5424), let me know so I can tell him exactly what to look for.

It's not being delivered until Wed, so hopefully they can locate what I need and deliver it at the same time.

I would need to know the bagger info from the warehouse but I would doubt that the one for a craftsman ztr would fit a husquvarna one and I know the one from a tractor will not fit your new ZTR.

I haven't called them yet (calling tomorrow) and I doubt they are going to give me model numbers for every unit they have lying around.

I'm more interested in knowing if the one I have linked in my previous post will actually fit. That way, I can ask if they have THAT unit available.

It's sold by sears and states that it's for "Husqvarna zero turn mowers", but does not get any more specific than that. I've never seen an accessory that didn't state what it actually FITS on.

It's Sears Item# 07124900000 Model# 24900



Note that someone I know on an unrelated forum tried to help - he sent me the following:

this is what you are looking for as far as I can see....I'm out of town until tuesday, if you haven;t found anything by then, let me know.


966 44 50-01
Collection System - 9 bushel 3 bin 2008 and 2009 Z and
RZ mowers (SEARS ONLY)
RZ54 and Z54 series Replaced By 966004201 $529.95
That "966004201" is teh one shown on the Husqvarna website - it's not the one that is on the Sears site. The Husky one has plastic bins - the Sears unit has soft bags.
My head is starting to hurt. This shouldn't be this difficult. LOL

I can not find much info about that part number even though I can sell it, from what I can see it looks like it only fits the units sears sold that have the engines fully encased in plastic. So I do not think it will fit on your unit.

Well, thank you anyway for taking the time to look into it. It is appreciated.

I did call regarding the availability of a discounted unit, but got the old "guy who was supposed to check isn't here today" excuse.

Oh well. At least I have a few months to research it more and see what I can come up with.



Just got the call - delivery between 7:45 and 9:45am tomorrow!!! Woo-Hoo!

Sure would have been nice if we hadn't gotten 3" of snow TODAY. Ugh.
Supposed to warm up though, so hopefully I get to try it out soon. No grass to cut, but I still wanna ride it.
