Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KarateDad It does the job, but doesn't do it well
The mulch kit does work, it closes off the opening so you can mulch. However, there is nothing holding it in except friction, and it occasionally will pop out while mowing.
Also, it always leaves a trail of grass between 2 of the blades, and sometimes 2 lines. This means I have to go over it a second time. The longer the grass is, the worse this problem gets, and sometimes it takes 3 passes. Often times I will mulch it all once, then go over a second pass with the bagger. I got this because the bagger sucks so bad, and it has helped somewhat, but I still have to cover the whole lawn at least twice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Grizz Serious problems
This product was a huge disappointment. It kept falling out, and needed to be drilled out and installed with long screws attached to the deck. I jury rigged some long screws to hold it in place, front & rear.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by waterman works well
I found this much cheaper at the mower dealers 40 bucks, first time I tried it the thing fell off because when you run up again something that causes your shoot to ride up there is nothing holding the mulch kit on ... however what I ended doing was to cut the shoot off just past where it has the pins that hold the mulch plate in place then just for added piece of mind I ran a bungee cord across the face of the mulching plate and hooked it to the deck. now its been doing I great job has not come off and I was able to get rid of that shoot that I hated and guess you will too, the shoot was always running up against something and would prevent you from cutting close to your trees fences without turning around so that the other side of deck is against the tree or whatever your cutting near. so buy it fro the dealer, install it , cut the plastic shoot off and bungee cord if you like, and you will be a happy grass cutter...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EvilNeighbor The plug fits fine in the discharge chute.
I like to mulch or bag. The mulching plug does not fit inside the discharge chute after the bagger hardware is installed. This clearly should be a note in the advertisement, or something the sales staff should be made aware of so they can inform the customers. $75? and it doesn't fit with the bagger. Really? I just remove the bagger hardware, including the deck mount. It's an inconvience to say the least, but I can deal with it as I rarely bag.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TROY EASY TO INSTALL BUT THROWS UP A LOT OF DUST FROM UNDER DECK.
Extremely easy to install, no screws or bolts to worry about. But there's alot of dust that kicks up from under the deck - don't know yet if it's just from the dry conditions or gonna be a problem long term...only used it once so far. Made of plastic, so don't know about durability long term; had a 2007 CD LT1045 that I used the mulch plug all the time; this one is alot simpler and looks to be as durable - hope to use it for a long time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Y0s1m1te This item does what it was intended to do.
The item seems a bit pricey for what you get. It is an injection molded piece of plastic that is held in place in the chute by two tabs and the chute guarde. I have used it twice and it does do the job it was intended to do. I am worried about its durability, only time will tell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diana Works as expected!
Not to exciting to review a mulch kit! It does what it's suppose to, mulches grass clippings! I guess I could mention, it is a nice shade of black.
