Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DLE 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Glen 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.

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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mulchy 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Not for the MX5050 50 In Timecutter
Ordered this(202558181 TimeCutter 50 In Recycler Kit) Toro # 79019 as a suggested item when I purchased my Toro MX5050 Timecutter. The MX welded deck has different dimensions from the stamped deck and it would not fit. The correct Toro part # you need is 79024 not too sure what the Home Depot Model # is but you need to check if you have an MX deck. The items seem to be in great condition just not for my model.
