Answer: 
Thank you for visiting The Home Depot website. The 48 inch mulch cover (GY20417) is designed to work with our 100 series mower with the 48-in. Edge™ mower deck. Therefore, this is not compatible with the Z525e 48" mower because it as the Accel Deep™ mower deck.

Answer: 
That is a loaded question.
It all depends what part comes in the box. if it's the part as listed in the picture here, then no, it is not the correct part (existing plastic chute should fit flat not an angle or need to be removed).
If the unit in the box comes with the straps on the vertical side #where the "48" is written) then it will fit correctly.
The part number is correct, but sometimes the unit Read More

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting The Home Depot website. It is not necessary to purchase a mulching blade along with the mulch cover. The standard mower blades on your lawn tractor are 3-and-1 blades.

48 in. Mulch Cover is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible item. Gave up on it after a few hours of use. Unfortunately, this appears to be the only place you can purchase a mulch cover from your John Deere mower. I mean the John Deere model. There are no other after-market ones available. This worked great the first couple of hours. Then I noticed it would no longer sit tightly against the mower and allowed grass to get around it and spray on your leg and foot. Plus, the grass get around it and leaves a row of cut grass behind and does not keep it inside the mower deck to be fine-mulched. It allows it to escape and really does nothing to help with the mulching process. It is made from the cheapest plastic you possibly could use (made in China, I'm sure), as it has already started to lose its shape. The rubber straps designed to hold it on are already stretched, leading to the problem of it not staying tight on the machine. After about five hours of use, this product is basically now useless. I am pretty creative and can rig most things to work, but this is beyond that. For the $30 plus dollars, sure not worth your money. Find another option if possible.

Reading other comments online, it seems to be a common problem. This fits the 48" deck, but it doesn't clip in very well. When it's on and bungeed, it stays in place and the mower does a good job of mulching grass and leaves. There's no alternative if this type of cover is what you want. It would get 5 stars if it clipped on correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Works great but did have to take off chute to install even though JD expert said you shouldn't have to. Chute would not go all the way down and would rub against wheel on the deck preventing it from turning free.
