    Turns out is mounts perfectly to the 1 Series and to the JB Bracket for the I-Match. No mods necessary, fits right out of the boxes. He said it works great on the 3-point because you can raise the hopper high enough to dump on a nice pile, if desired. He is going to get some video of it in action during this weekend's mowing.

    Take a look at the pics. I think it turned out pretty nice.
    That's a really nice set up!

    I'm curious as to how this setup is working out for the OP? This would allow my wife to mow while I'm at work and still bag the grass. She can't lift the bags very well. It would be a benefit to me due to on going lower back issues.

    Looks like it's part number LP47170.

    I know of a couple people running this set-up now. I will reach out and see if they can provide any feedback on it. Truthfully, the only thing would be the reach to the dump handle. Hopefully I can get a response or two on this. I will just have to dig back in the old memory bank and see if I remember some names.....

    I reached out to two guys this morning to see how they like the hoppers on the 1 Series. With their permission, I will post if they respond.

    I heard from both guys. The general consensus is they love the hoppers, but the reach for the dump handle is an issue. Both guys use my I-Match adapter. One has the standard set-up on the I-Match and the other is using a custom bracket I did for the Pat's Easy Change System.

    One gentleman has back problems and does not even try to reach the handle from the seat. The other stated he has to lift off the seat a bit to reach the handle and, if he had not disabled the safety switch on the seat, the tractor would likely shut down.

    I think its either a "wait and see" what Deere comes up with a solution for the reach problem or go in with the understanding the hopper handle needs to be extended to make the reach more comfortable. I have been thinking about getting a hopper for myself. Maybe I should think about it a little harder and do a handle extension.

    Thanks Randy. I figured the handle would be the issue. I've got some flat steel laying around from another project. Figured I could drill a couple holes in the handle and bolt an extension on. Have to wait an see.
