Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great + Plug Tip This mulch kit works awesome. We have almost 2 acres of heavily leafy area and this is so much easier than raking! Mow just like usual and it chops up the leaves and makes them biodegrade much more quickly than leaving them whole. Plus it's great fertilizer for your lawn! Plug Tip: Like other reviewers have said, the plug likely wont stay on. Spend a few bucks and get some zip ties. I used 5 zip ties to hold the plug on by drilling some small holes in the plastic plug (see image). So far so good. A few broke, just check and replace before mowing if you need to. I really doubt the plug would stay on without the zip ties. Avoid problems and use the ties or something similar. Other than needing to make the plug modification and check your zip ties, this mulching kit is awesome! November 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's a mulch kit I attached the mulching kit plug with the addition of 2 zip-ties(shown in photo) and have not had it fall off. I read about others that have it fall off and just decided to address the situation from the get go. To change the standard blades with the mulching blades does require a good size breaker bar or ratchet since the mount bolts are torqued to 70 to 90 ft-lbs. I only cut using the mulch kit, at full throttle and with the blade height adjuster in the 4th position. It leaves behind no grass clumps or piles. November 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does everything it should The cover snaps into place under the discharge chute rod......and at the bottom of the deck.....tight fit, no problems. The blade changeover is simple.......if you have an impact gun run by an air compressor,(which I have). I tried first with a breaker bar just to see.....umm, no way. Plus, if you have an impact, deck removal is not required. Only thing I'm worried about is the quality of these blades.....I put one cut on the original blades (RZT 42 L Model), and when I inspected them after removal, I could not believe my eyes when I saw little nicks in the blade. I have a regular yard as sticks, stones, etc. May 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Bad Mulch Kit Compared to John Deere's Being a previous John Deere owner, I'm very disappointed in this mulch kit. Mulch and silt from mowing sprays the operator from the connection of the plastic plug and metal deck opening with the design of the plug keeping the grass chute open. Without a doubt, the dirtiest mowing experience I ever had. As with other reviews, I will need to modify the connection and provide an out let that won't spray me while mowing. Deere's design provides a metal steel plate with per-furcated holes to allow the fine mulch and silt to flow through the grass chute and away from the operator. As an engineer, I can't imagine this mulch kit passing any Q/C checks, other than it's over-priced, cheap material, bad design and doesn't work. Does not reflect well on Cub Cadet. September 12, 2014
