Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mower1 Low quality product, product failure
The two blades received were not original equipment quality. They were lightweight, and after installed and put into service, apparently flex under the stress of being used and cut unevenly compared to the OEM blades. The discharge chute cover installed easily, but kept coming off the mower deck because the it was made of too lightweight of plastic. The bungee that was designed to hole the cover to the deck broke after about an hour of use and the plastic cover was destroyed by the blade when this happened. The entire blade and discharge chute cover failed. I will never trust buying accessories using the website going forward as the product appears viable looking at the website picture, but is junk for a high price. I wasted my time and money on the product.

These are not the right blades for my tractor. Its not Home Depot's fault. I called Cub Cadet and they tried to sell me the same blades. I had to return this kit and then buy the blades from Tractor Supply and the cover from Cub Cadet. What a hassle for what should be a simple purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JoseD Didn't fit my newer Cub Cadet
I purchased this item on-line back in late March '11 along with the 42" Cub Cadet (2010 model) and bumper kit. At the time that I ordered the mulch kit, there was no description for it being for Cub Cadet models for 2009 and prior models. That is now on the website which is a good thing. Unfortunately, the local Home Depot didn't carry any of the mulch kits in stock, so I had to order the correct one through Cub Cadet. I must add though that it was a hassle-free experience returning the mulch kit to my local Home Depot store. Just make sure that you keep your Shipping confirmation e-mail. You'll need to bring a copy of that when returning the mulch kit.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by HappyCubCadetOwner Bad design, but 2013 versin is much better
I bought the mulch kit already installed from a local cub Cadet dealer. The plastic shoot plug version shown here and sold in 2012 is a piece of junk. On the second mowing it cam off and I accidentally chopped it to pieces. Took it back to the dealer and they replaced it free of charge with the re-engineered version for 2013. MUch better, It has a bolt to connect the strap to and the plug fastens under the shoot hinge and clamps to the deck on the bottom. Don't buy the older (2012) version shown here. Buy the re-engineered version instead.
