Can the Recycler Kit be installed by a homeowner without removing the current bed?

I want to know the difficulty in installing the recycler kit.
Asked by: Rich
Yes and no. You can do it if you have a drill strong enough to put self tapping screws. I had to take it to the shop because I didn't have one. You'll have to remove the deck but it's not hard.

Customer Reviews

TimeCutter MX 50 in. Recycler Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings... Mowing taller-than-normal grass vibrates the baffles and sounds like they're loose when they aren't. A design I might have changed, had I been in charge. Since I wasn't, I took what I got. Slow down while mowing grass that's thick or the slurry of clippings will force the spines to lay down rather than be cut and leave little trees in your freshly-mown lawn. Having said that, I can't give 4.5 of 5 stars or I would. Extremely easy to use and installation (I removed the deck; remove spring for the belt, one cotter pin and two hooks and slide it out) was less difficult than I imagined. Stand the deck on its back edge so bolts can be accessed from both sides. Lawn looks great and clippings are destroyed. Would purchase again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mulching kit This is an absolutely great product except and cuts the grass great, except a couple of the bolts snapped off that were welded on so do not over tighten. Re-ordering to replace One of the curved metal pieces

After searching the internet extensively, I could not find a recycler kit that was officially endorsed by Toro to fit my 2013 50-inch Toro Timecutter MX5060. I tried the Toro part 79019 and found it was not even remotely close to fitting. I next tried the Toro part 79024, and, despite finding no evidence that it would fit, it worked like a charm. All the baffles and bolts line up to existing holes. The kit includes "self taping" bolts/screws to install the internal ridges and separator panel but in reality they are simple 5/16" bolts at 3/4" length. The leading edge resembles nothing of a self taping style and consequently it takes considerable effort to initiate the bite. The existing holes in the MX5060 deck were too small to easily slide the bolts through. Instead of forcing the bolts in, I drilled the existing holes out to 5/16" and easily slide the bolts in. The kit only includes flange nuts to lock down the steel baffles to the deck. If you drill the holes out for the internal ridges you will need extra 5/16" bolts. I ran to local hardware store and bought 8 stainless 5/16" flange lock nuts which I used to install the internal ridges and separator panel. This will also allow for easy removal of the kit and conversion back to side discharge. I suggest removing the deck and propping it up using blocks or against the wall. I was to remove the deck and reinstall it by myself with a little elbow grease and a couple spare 2x4 blocks. For un-handy folks this process may prove slightly difficult and frustrating but be assured it can certainly be done. Once the deck was assembled and back on the mower I tested out the kit on some left over fall leaves. Mulching results were fair to good but the kit did not produce dusk or powder like leaves. I would say for the money, it was a decent investment but compared to a dedicated mulching deck it leaves a bit to be desired. In summary, I am pleased and if your on the fence about the product I would say give it try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Kit - Mulches Leaves Really Well FYI - I have an Exmark Quest S with the Series 2 fab deck, which for 2014 at least had the same deck as the Toro MX. If you didn't know, Toro owns the Exmark Brand. This kit for the 50 MX Fab Deck fit my Exmark perfectly, for about $75 less than the "Exmark" kit. The parts are good quality. Installation was easy, except the self-tapping screws for the kickers can be a little tough to get started. I'd recommend sharpening the blades before you install them and be careful with aftermarket blades, because the blades pass under the kicker flanges and your aftermarket blades could hit if they're too tall. Performance is really good for both leaves and grass, but you may get a little dusty.

It works good but it requires strong drill to put self tapping screws and it didn't say anything in an instruction. I didn't have strong enough drill to put that screws in so I had to take the deck to the shop. It was not pre drilled. Ended up breaking my tail lamp on my SUV while loading the deck and cost me $600.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mulcher! Worked as promised. Easy to install and is working much better than the original blades and side discharge. I was able to cut my mowing time down by quite a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I search the Internet for reviews on how this kit worked on mulching leaves found very few I am impressed how this mulches and shreds the leaves even wet oak leaves wish I bought sooner very easy to install with self tapping screws holes are already pre drilled on deck worth every penny
