Hi All,

I have an old Simplicity 5212.5 with a dual bagger in the rear. It still runs great, but the clear plastic tube back the bagger is very cracked and held together with duct tape. The OEM tube is no longer available.

Does anyone know a source for generic clear plastic tube stock? The original tube was 6.34" inside diameter x 24" long

thanks

Here are the dimensions: Simplicity 1679174SM Lexan/Polycarbonate TUBE 6.340" ID 24.00" LG
If you can't find a tube that diameter, you could always "roll-your-own" and pop-rivet the joint (keep the joint at the top).

A 35" long tube in that diameter is available (but pricey at $144+shipping) : Murray Simplicity Snapper 1701864SM Tube-6.340Id 35.00 Lg
Here's a 43" one for $125+free shipping Simplicity 1700774YP Grass Catcher Tube OEM NOS | eBay
Chalmers says 10 43" ones in stock for $109+shipping Murray Tube-6.340 ID 43.0 Lg (1700774)
29" for $93+shipping PartsTree - Home of OEM Parts for Outdoor Power Equipment
Each of these would just require cutting it to the correct length.
