Answer: 
No. It does just fine. The Honda has a two blade technology but the John Deere 100 series mulches just as well with factory blades.

If the cover is all you need, then why does the John Deere site recommend purchasing the mulch kit (Item # BM21816) for this mower?

Answer: 
I would suggest getting a the mulching blade in conjunction with this cover because it can cut up the grass into smaller pieces. I actually got the Predator blades and it worked fine.

Answer: 
I'm not an expert, but I am pretty confident you need mulching blades as well. If you already have mulching blades, this should incrementally increase the amount the grass is mulched, but the bigger factor is having mulching blades.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 116 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Good Purchase Its just a cover to prevent the grass cuttings from exiting out. So in my opinion it is not really a mulch cover. But it does help in minimizing having to rake up grass clippings from my lawn. So I use it. August 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice add-on Works good! Its a little tricky to get the hooks attached and you have to bend it pretty hard to get the unit into in the groove on the deck. August 10, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Falls off ! Needs a better system to keep this product on . John Deere needs to build a better system to keep these on . Straps pop off !!!!!! July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by outstanding product Dont understand why this isnt in stores. This is a very effective and cheap alternative to the bagging method July 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by What a waste of my time Why would Home Depot add this item to the page for a Z335E 42 in. 20 HP Dual Hydrostatic Gas Zero-Turn Riding Mower is stupid. This is not made for this machine. waste of time to buy and then have to return it. Home Depot is set up to fail and fail it will do soon. There will be Lowes and Menards left. July 6, 2016
