The mower will be brand new so can I just keep the original blades and still get the mulching action?

Answer: 
I didn't because I could not tell the difference between the blades that came on it and the new blades in the kit. It mulches just fine with the original blades, in my opinion.

Answer: 
I'm not sure on that. They look very similar, but I can tell you that it's VERY simple to do. I'm not mechanical at all and it just took a wrench and some muscle.
I switched mine out and then kept my old blades for the future just in case.

The Toro Recycler mulch kit comes with a set of special blades for mulching. The kit will not mulch effectively without installing these blades.

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

Answer: 
I see no reason to leave the chute on, as it doesn't discharge at all with the mulching kit installed. With the discharge chute removed, you can trim closely on either side of the mower. I took mine off.

Answer: 
Yes. I did. The blade surrounds block the shoot. The kit is all heavy steel. It bounces in the box. Be ready to touch up paint before install. It's 2 pieces and they scratch each other in the box. I did reinstall the chute hardware to plug the holes they would leave behind

Yes. With this kit installed you will no longer have a discharge shoot and it does make the mower narrower and easier to maneuver around obstacles.

The size of the deflector on the 50” TimeCutter deck is actually one of its advantages vs. competitive mowers when side discharging grass clippings. The large size allows for maximum airflow and dispersion of clippings to give the absolute best after cut appearance possible.

I would think this would fit any 50" deck. I have the ss5060 and really the only difference besides some comfort features is that the 5060 has 2hp more than the 5000.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! The recycling kit works great!!! Easy to install!! July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As advertised Worked as advertised, pretty straightforward install. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toro recycle kit Great. It works very well, dust free, leaves my 3 acre lawn looking great. Should be sold with the mower, I wasted three years cutting grass without it. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seems well made and not terribly expensive The instructions for installation were really poor. The construction was good. It seems to work well. The blades they gave you were exactly the same as the standard mower blades, certainly not mulching blades. May 24, 2016
