Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobiss fell off... chopped up
Yes I had the same problem as everyone else. Check the Cub Cadet web site for proper installation of the plug. It is not installed as you might think. You can order the plug seperatly from cub cadet. Before I chewed it up in the mower I got about 10 hours of use. The grass mulched pretty well even in fairly tall cuts. p.s. I bought the Cub RZT S what a great machine... excellent on hills

Quick shipment & easy installation. Product works well, however, chute blocker, doesn't stay attached 100% of time, frequently dislodges on bumps.

Shoot cover doesn't fall off. I'm not sure how it could be such a problem, unless it's put on wrong. Great cut and installation took less than 10 minutes.

Save your money everyone!! This thing is a piece of junk. Blades are fine but the plastic cover is junk. Will not stay on. I have used it 2 times and it just came off and went through the blades. I have bought mulching kits for other mowers in the past and never has this problem. VERY BAD DESIGN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Mulch Kit for 46" Cub Cadet Lawn Mower
When I received the mulch kit, the mulch plug that goes on the the mower was missing, took 2 weeks to receive after notified Home Depot that it was missing.
Installed and mowed my lawn today, didn't make it halfway before the plug had came off and got into the blades and was destroyed.
If I order a replacement plug, it will be modified so that it fits securely and won't come off while in use.

I was sick of dead grass being left in our yard... it always looked good when my husband cut the grass, but then we'd have these trails of dead grass! I thought I was going to have to go back to raking it all up after him! Love this mulching kit...it was easy to install, price was perfect and no more grass trails!

Mulch cover should be sold separately from the blades to minimize cost

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phil Product works well but seems expensive for what it is.
Other reviews have said that the mulch plug tended to blow off. I bought this kit in early 2014 and the plug is secured with a strap and a bolt. I don't see how it can blow off and I've had no problems with that. I have seen some clippings blowing out under the left side of the deck, opposite the plug, but not much.
My only complaint is that $89 seems high for the kit. Two blades are $46 for cub cadet brand but other brands can be found for less. That makes the relatively small plastic plug cost $40. Too high in my opinion.
Also, make sure you have a good long cheater wrench or an impact wrench handy to remove the old blades. They are put on very tightly.
