Answer: 
You could use them but you would not get any substantial mulching capability as the mulching blades are designed to elevate the grass in the cutting chamber, cutting and re-cutting the blades of grass to small biodegradable size, or mulch. The existing blades are designed to cut once and push the cut grass blade into the exit hole of the cutting chamber and into the catch bag. If there is no exit hole Read More
You could use them but you would not get any substantial mulching capability as the mulching blades are designed to elevate the grass in the cutting chamber, cutting and re-cutting the blades of grass to small biodegradable size, or mulch. The existing blades are designed to cut once and push the cut grass blade into the exit hole of the cutting chamber and into the catch bag. If there is no exit hole the grass falls to the ground and is left behind without mulching. There is also a buildup of grass at the blocked exit hole. This could eventually cause damage to the mower.
I do not recommend using this kit without the associated blades. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, they are designed differently to create a lot of lift, like fan blades, that keep the clippings airborne so they can be chopped into finer pieces.

Answer: 
Yes, the blades have a different shape and added 2 more sharped edges. You can use the standard one, but the process of mulching substantially is not effective. After the cutting I can see the size of the mulch and is smaller when I used the standard blades. You can attach the cover included in the kit using only the rubber bands removing the standard system.

Answer: 
More than likely, yes. I just purchased a 42" Ariens A19A42 mower (model 9601460061) and the OEM42MK mulch kit on June 7, 2015 and the mower's model # wasn't listed on the box...but it fit perfectly when I installed it.
It appears to fit the 42" mowers of the brand names on the box....even if a newer model number debuts.

Hi JD,
The blades that come with the kit are mulching blades, design to cut the grass blades several times before the grass reaches the ground. If you already have mulching blades installed there is no reason to install these. Keep them for the next time you replace the blades. Even if you have regular blades installed you can leave them on but you will need to thatch your lawn next year as they are

Also, you will need to drive slower with mulching blades if you really want them to be effective. Read Less

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great - directions for assembling could have been better written including better graphics. As mentioned above, the directions were for several different models but did not specify which directions for which model. That should be clarified by model number. The graphics were drawings which weren't exactly easy to identify. Actual pictures would have been more helpful. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I was looking for This was the mulching blades I was looking for. The right ones for my riding lawn mower. easy to install and they work great. August 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not so great I purchased this for my Husqvarna 42in riding mower. The blades are easy to install and great quality. However they were significantly duller than the stock blades. The blades seem to leave a dull grass blade and its turns gray leaving my lawn looking dull. Not to mention the clumps of grass all over the lawn. I had to make about 4 passes to get everything mulched down enough. I tried sharpening sharpening the blades with no more success. I only took about 1in off the grass each time to make sure I wasn't trying to cut to much. I would recommend skipping the mulching kit and get a bagger. May 20, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor fit The cover did not mate with deck properly and permitted grass to shoot all over. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works perfect I thought it would be a great idea to remove the grass Shute so it wasn't sticking out the side of the mower but if you remove trimmings come up through little gaps between the deck and the grass plug . What I did was reinstalled the shoot and cut it off flush with the outside of the deck so now it blocks that little gap and doesn't stick out past the deck . May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Effective Seems to work as designed. The cover is not extremely tight to the mowing deck so a little bit of grass clippings fly out. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fairly easy to install; works pretty well The basic installation process is pretty easy; the blades are held on with a nut, and the discharge cover is held on with hooks and elastic. The discharge cover makes a loose connection with the deck and can be jostled out of place a little. Mulching performance is fine. I did not want the discharge shield on my [Ariens] mower to stick out past the deck, so I removed it. This was a little difficult because it required prying off the cap on the hinge pin. Then the problem was that grass and dust gets shot up through a little hole in the top of the discharge cover part of the mulching kit. My previous mower had a bolt-on discharge cover with no gaps or holes, and it worked better. July 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Money well spent This mulch kit works very well. Super easy to install, and fits good. I'm going to buy one for my 46" tractor next. Best bang for your buck! January 5, 2016
