Customer Questions & Answers

Do I have to install the blades that come with this kit to mulch?

The mower will be brand new so can I just keep the original blades and still get the mulching action?
Asked by: DanH
you should , they look very similar to stock blades but there is a slight change in design

With this kit installed can I remove the discharge shoot guard and make the lawnmower narrower.

Only thing I don't like about the new mower is the giant discharge shoot guard. Is the kit made of plastic or metal?

With this kit can the mulching kit be removed easily to mow taller grass, does it have like a shoot to remove and reinstall this kit?
Asked by: JOE12
If a recycling kit is installed on your mower and you want to cut taller grass, you can remove one of the baffles (with common tools) to allow the clippings to be side discharged from the cutting deck. All safety features, including the side discharge chute, should be properly installed and in use to ensure safe operation.

I have a SS5000 (50 inch version 2015 model) It took about 2.5 hrs to put together, I needed a hand on the middle deflector plate but everything else I was able to by myself. I just tried it out and it worked great on leafs, very cool that now you can drive right next to things from both sides! 1) instructions say take off deck and turn it upside down but that is a lot more work, so i jacked it up front with jack stands for safety. 2) instructions are not very good and they leave out many steps, I was missing one screw plus the pictures are vague. 3) first thing take off plastic deflector and mine had a internal metal deflector plate underneath to remove. 4) two of the holes you will need have bolts in them so FYI to take them out. 5) the blades look very similar to what my came with but of course change them out with what it came with. 6) take off the old blades 7) you will have two big metal deflectors, the one that has some cuts outs on one side you put on last and it fits near the opening. get the screws handy with washers so when you get them to fit through the holes you can put the screw/cap on. 8) Next I put the plastic deflectors (I needed a short screw driver), the middle one i was able to get to by taking out the battery and mounting plate and then my wife screwed it in while I was holding the plate underneath. 9) Then put on the blades and any remaining hardware I used to fill in the prior mounting holes for hardware. 10) enjoy :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I use this on a commercial application for my small business. Installation was about an hour. Because some pieces have to be nudged into place. Once installed. It's easy. Just mow and mulch. My only complaint is the price. I think it could be $25 cheaper. Bottom line. I'd buy again for leaf season. Makes a lot of dust with dry grass though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great!! Works great!!! Well worth the money. I have 2 acres and there is no way I'm bagging that much. Cuts down on the dust an leaves the yard looking clean (no clump rows). Instillation instructions fell a little short, but it was easy enough to figure out. If you can turn a wrench and use a drill you can easily install this. Baffles were solid metal (great quality). Directional (triangle) inserts were thick plastic, well made!!!! An absolute must get item for this mower if you are not into bagging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely recommended. It took some time to install but it was well worth it. My yard never looked so good because I can not see any grass clippings laying on top of the grass. They say mulching is the best for your grass since it chops the clippings into many small pieces and forces it back down. I will never bag my yard again! When replacing blades do NOT use regular blades but replace with mulching blades. They are designed to work most efficiently with the air flow under the deck cutting the clippings in fine particles. I took off the unused grass deflector so I could mow close to both sides of the deck. Save the deflector and reinstall if you ever convert back from mulching.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap fastners and poor quality control. The threaded studs were damaged so badly the PLASTIC knobs used to fasten the hunks of heavy steel baffle to the mower deck didn't have anything to grab on to. The pyramid shaped "kick plates" are made of plastic as well. One accidental twig or toy and they are toast. Rather than return it, I figure it's far less of a hassle to re-thread the studs and replace the plastic knobs with more durable nuts. I recommend this anyway for safety reason. If one of the plastic knobs gives way the steel baffles will fall into the spinning blades. This product is outrageously expensive for what you get, but we have no other options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mulching Kit for a Toro SS5000 Zero-Turn Mower I have used my mower about 3 times since I installed this mulching kit. It does a good job at chewing grass and leaves up, but not as good as my old Scott's lawn tractor did with it's mulching deck. It is acceptable, but when you mulch leaves, mulch them before they get too deep. I have found that the mower does a good job if you do that. And the mulching kit keeps the dust down, and allows close trimming on the right side. Anyways, I love cutting grass and mulching using my Toro SS5000 mower; it's a great machine, and fun to drive. One hint when you install the kit - use a short piece of rope looped thru the end of the pully tensioner spring to release it from the deck by pulling on it, and then dropping the deck is a very simple process, as this allows you to remove the belt from the bottom of the motor quite easily. Installation was not difficult; took me about an hour by myself, at a leisurely pace. Overall, the mulching kit works well, although it is a bit pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real TIME SAVER. I really like this mower. I have used it times thus far. I'm over yard maintenance for our HOA and mow 24 yards each week. I needed to cut my time down somehow and this really did it! I can mow almost everything with it. I finish the close in areas with a push mower. It WAS a beast to get home. Had to use a flat bed trailer. It was alot of work to uncrate. Very, very worth it though. This was a great decision. So far I am really happy with my decision
