Things You'll Need

  • Bag assembly

  • Screwdriver

MTD Yard Machine push mowers have two different styles; the standard discharge model and models with a mulching bag. The rear bag connects to the mower and catches any grass that is cut. Grass mulched in the bag can be used in the compost pile after it is disposed. Properly attaching the bag prevents clumps of grass clogging the back of the mower and reducing the efficiency and power of the mower while cutting the lawn.
