Need Craftsman mower grass bag

I have a very old, but really good condition Craftsman Eager 1 22" self-propelled mower. It originally had a plastic grass catcher, but now has none. I need one and Sears charges $145 plus shipping. There must be a cheaper way to keep my old mower going. Does anyone know of another grass catcher that would fit, or where I could get one for this mower other than sears?

Really old isn't very helpful.
Post the numbers off the mower. It should be something like 917.xxxxx
I still don't think you'll have any luck, but you have to give us a chance.

I just checked out the replacement grass bag for my Craftsman lawn mower and it is $46.84. $145 sure does sound high. As the previous poster suggested, give us your model number.

I used to have one long ago with the "hard" plastic rear bagger. Assume your talking same thing. I would imagine they are more expensive that a fabric bag. I have occasionally seen these listed on ebay...good luck

I have at least one of the hard, grass catchers here, maybe 2!
I'd send one if the numbers are right, and if you'd pay for the shipping! No cost other than that. I think the mowers have gone to "The lawn in the sky"!

I am also looking for a grass catcher for my old Craftsman Eager-1 lawn mower (4.0HP, 22in) model#917 372285.

Does Rustyj14 in the last post still have an extra one that he is willing to part with? Thanks for any other leads.

The grass bag for model # 917.372285 is available at Sears Parts for $51.90 plus shipping. In the diagram it appears to be a grass bag.

Sears Parts grass bag

Correction: Of course it is a grass bag; I meant to say it appears to be a fabric bag.

I have a similar problem ... the grass-catcher bag for my Craftsman Eager 1 mower (model #917376290) is so worn out that it is dangerous to use (not to mention the annoyance of getting a facefull of clippings from time to time) ... the bag itself is a Lift-Top 2.4 bushel Dust-Less model ... any idea where I can get a replacement bag (the mower runs great, just need a new bag)?

RE: Need Craftsman mower grass bag

The 917.376290 bag is available at Sears Parts for $72.71. If you need the metal frame also, it comes in 2 pieces; one section is 21.22, and the other is 9.88.

There are three Plastic Craftsman grass catchers listed for sale in Little Falls NJ on the North Jersey Craigslist- go to craigslist for New Jersey and pick out North Jersey the posting is on September 18th in the Farm & Garden catagory. The seller wants $10.00 each for the Grass catchers. He has pictures of them on craigslist. Good Luck!

RE: Need Craftsman mower grass bag

My suggestion is to put a WTB ad on Craigslist. I hit the jackpot and got a free bag for my MTD push mower.

Also might want to check at local small engine fix-it shops (won't be free, but will probably be fair price).

I am also looking for an Eager-1 Serial # 08141060234 lawn mower bag. The Model number of this one is 131.907741. Sears no longer sells them for this mower, does anyone know who might carry a bag that would fit? Fabric would be fine but original was probably plastic. Thanks to anyone that can give me some assistance with this.

You are not going anywhere without the Sears model number. Serial number doesn't help. If you're serious, see Bill Kapaun's post at the top and list the 917.XXXXXX number.
