John Deere Grass Catcher Question

Post by SSE Dad »

Does anyone know if the grass catcher for a 180c will fit a 180sl and vice versa? I’ve ordered from 2 different sources with no luck yet but might be able to borrow one from someone with an SL and I have the C.

I’m having trouble finding a grass catcher for my 180c. I don’t want to spend $200 on it from the one website I found it on. Any ideas where I could look for one? Thanks

Here's some part numbers for it which I believe may have changed at one time?

I believe they should fit. I purchased a 260c grass catcher for my 260sl and it fit. Id imagine the 220 models would be cross compatible as well

I was shipped my 180C grass basket by mistake. It wouldn't fit my 180SL.

hmm. I think I purchased mine off ebay. maybe the seller mistakenly listed it as a 260c basket and it was actually one for the 260sl.

I wouldn't be surprised by that at all. My 180SL mower was supposed to be shipped with a functional grass basket, but they shipped the 180C basket by mistake. It definitely would not fit and I had to buy a new one from Greenfarmparts.com.
