Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Captainsursea The Mulcher is Excellent once on the 42" Mower
I purchased a Husqvarna Poulan Pro 42" riding mower and the Mulch Kit for it to make mowing easier in addition to the mulching benefits we all want for our lawns. The blades are well made, balanced and "heavy duty." The thick plastic cover that fits over the grass exhaust is well made and fits like a glove. After I mounted and calibrated the height of the blades on the mower I made a number of passes around the lawn. The mulching was excellent and the cuts were just the right size - not too long or too short. I recommend these blades; they're terrific.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tim 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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Johngee Poor fit
The cover did not mate with deck properly and permitted grass to shoot all over.

Seems to work as designed. The cover is not extremely tight to the mowing deck so a little bit of grass clippings fly out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grinder369 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 .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cutter 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.
