A guy posted on criagslist a JD bagger for $40. he had a picture of it and was a powerflo that he had on his 185. called him and we talked and I said that I will be at his house the next day to got it. got there and it is a powerflo for a 46" deck. Just what I need for mine 46" deck. got all the hardware to mount it. All but the drive pulley, he said that it broke two or three years back and he needs unit gone. so now all I need is the drive pulley. Have to call JD to see if I can got one for my 46" deck. I checked the bearing and they all are good and the bags are just dirty, no holes at all. There are no cracks that I can find, just a little dirty and dusty.
Can not wait to got it on my 214 and see how good it is. I hope it will pick the acorn nut and black walnut is fall

Have you had a look at JDParts.com to see if the part is available. You can get the part number and and if you register you can get costs.

Sounds like a great purchase. Those walnuts are a lot of fun to pick up, huh?

Power flow bagger systems work really well.After I made mine for my MF 1655 I couldn't believe what it would pick up. Almost like having a vacuum cleaner on there.Sawdust from the chainsaw,acorn nuts,etc: it sure cleans up the yard nice in the fall.You'll like using it thats for sure.Good find for sure.Larry

Sounds like you got a good deal on the power flo. We need to see about getting something to help with cleaning up the yard with all of the trees we have.

checked with JD and the part number shows M91361 for $43.99 - the dia for the mower desk drive is 4.528 in and the dia for the powerflow drive is 3.819 in and the height 2.795 in. I ordered it and should pick up next Friday. Hope it is the right one, it looks like it should work, but they also show another one part number M144550, but no specs for it

has anybody have a 46 powerflow on their 100 or 200 series tractor?
if you do would you check your's so that I know I am getting the right part
picture and/or measurement would help

Thanks Glen

Sounds like you got a good deal on the power flow. I've got a couple of them for the 46" deck. Got lots of trees also, and I kinda flinch when some acorns & nuts go through it, but so far I don't think I've damaged it.

When I went to JD to get the jacksheave, I took a spindle along and a 1-1/8" deep socket for the nut. The socket would nut go into the jacksheave and they looked it up and it said to use a 1-1/8" socket.

at home I tried to see if a 1" deep socket would fit and it did see I go in and it did. so I got out my grinder and grinded the nut to fit the 1" socket.

Put it all together and got the power flow (two bag) working today. Works great. Mowed the front part of my yard and got around three bags full. I notice the the left bag fulls up first and the right bag does kinda.

I am think about making a large dump box to replace the two bags that hangs on the tractor.

Is there a was to get both bags full about the same time?
