Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertized Saw some negative ratings and was a little worried about it working / fitting while waiting for it to arrive. Those feeling quickly went away once I received it. Fit and worked just like the original did on my Z245. The blades seem designed more for lift for use with a bagger, a dedicated mulch blade would make this system top notch. Photo's taken after I had mowed two large yards of 4" grass. 4 is a great rating for me as nothing on earth is perfect and I always want things I buy to be cheaper. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by For D140 Remove the chutes first!!!! You can only get it to fit by removing inner and outer deflecotrs first. Just reove the two nuts and don't bother putting the delectors back on since they serve no function with the mulch cover in place. May 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I hoped for! I bought this for my 2013 John Deere D140 48" mower. Used it for the first time today with new mulching blades. Worked perfectly for me. I have an acre lot that is almost all grass and have been filling up about 30 bags of clippings per week. No more! I did have to mow a little slower to ensure the clippings were cut small enough to work down into the grass, but that was a small price to pay for the benefit of not having to deal with 120+ bags per month of clippings. Some reviewers complained of installation problems, but I didn't experience any problem. Nothing to remove from the deck - just lift up the deflector chutes to their full extend and clip on the mulch cover to the same locations I use for the bagger attachment. September 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just replace the rubber straps ($10) when they wear out; you do not need a new cover When my 48 inch mulch cover straps broke (after 3 years of use) I went to the JD dealer and purchased replacement straps for only $10. Just drill out the old rivets; then use bolts to mount the new straps to the cover. You can buy new rivets if you want. By reusing the metal hooks and the plastic cover with new straps you are ready to go for only $10. The mulch cover with mulching blades work just fine on my L130 JD tractor. April 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great!! Works great. Don't have to rake any leaves anymore plus I'm feeding my lawn at the same time. December 23, 2014
