Customer Questions & Answers

will this my huskee 42 in. deck ?

will this fit a 38" MTD deck?

Asked by: Pastor
Yes. It is a perfect fit. I just installed it on mine. The kit comes with four metal strips. You only use two. Look for the two stamped 38. The other two are stamped 42 and are for use on a 42" deck. If you choose to drop the mowing deck to install the kit, use a white grease marker to mark the holes on brackets. The cheap hair pins damage on removal. Get a hair pin kit for a few bucks at any hardware. It looks much harder than it is to drop the deck. Just take your time and pay attention to where everything goes. Use a cell phone camera if you think you may not remember.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mulch Kit When the kit arrived I excited but then it became evident the the kit didn't fit my mower. A complete waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install if you remove blade assembly and turn it over. Hard to start self tapping screws... Easy to install if you remove blade assembly and turn it over. Hard to start self tapping screws otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit. Being a lazy sort, I wanted to mulch the leaves in my yard this fall, as opposed to raking and disposing of them off site. I also wanted the additional benefit of enriching the soil. I found this mulching kit on line and had it delivered to my local Home Depot store where I picked it up. It fit perfectly and was quite easy to install, although I do have a lift for my tractor and that may have facilitated the installation. The kit does an excellent job of containing the leaves and grass clippings and I am considering leaving it attached to the mower deck all year round..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't fit my lawn mower Mulch kit was originally delivered to wrong address. It turned up at a neighbors house. After it arrived, immediately noticed it would not fit my mower. Found out kit was for up to 2009 MTD mowers, mine is a 2014. Internet research determined what was the proper kit (it is not obvious). This kit turned out to be in stock at local store. Returned online purchase for kit at local store, which worked fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! After purchasing a mulch cover plate online from another company that had to be returned, I bought the complete set - mulch cover plate and blades - from Home Depot. I did not change the blades as it is a new mower, but installed the mulch cover plate myself and I am a 60 year old female. I will keep the blades as a future replacement for my current ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value This product was the perfect item for my Bolens 38" riding mower. No more bagging clippings, removal of chute to get through gate and taking up valuable garage space with the rear bagger I had. Plus it was $30 cheaper than any other source I searched. Additionally, the mulch clippings are recommended for the St. Augustine grass in my yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MTD mulch kit (38 to 42 inch) the best money I have ever spent. Bolted right up and was mulching in no time. I was skeptical at first because this kit was for both the 38 & 42 inch deck, but fits both size decks exactly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a fit Was told this would fit my 42inch troy Bilt pony, but didnt. Not even close. The extra blades aren't blades at all.. just add onew to the deck. Complete waste of time.
