Questions & Answers

My son in law and I share n 1142' he wants to mulch by just adding a plug , will this work and if so why add blades

Asked by: Pepa
Mulch blades vs bagging blades, there is a difference. Bagging are meant to lift the grass to the discharge chute while mulching blades are designed to cut the grass more than once so it is smaller and unnoticeable on the grass surface. Mulching blades often have a curve on them. You will have better mulching results with a mulching blade. Look at your local shop, they are typically marked bagging or mulching.

should I buy the kit?

Asked by: jim
It is a Safety Hazard, opens up and cr...p flies every where. My wife took a rock to the face while checking out the New Mower. If you have pebbles and rocks buy a different mower with a steel Guard, I cannot believe they made this out of Plastic with no way to anchor the bottom.

Hello, i bought this kit and also the double bagger. I figured it would greatly reduce the number of bags i would end up with. Good idea?

Thanks
Asked by: Dave
NO, not a good idea. The whole reason for mulching grass is so that it will be left on the ground to decompose and return the nutrients to your lawn. If you bag your grass clippings you're needlessly removing the nutrients your lawn needs, much less creating a vast amount of work for yourself in having to bag them, and creating landfill which the environment doesn't need.

Which mulching kit fits Cub Cadet RZT-S 42 in zero turn with steering wheel?

Asked by: roadranger
This kit will not work for 2016 RZT-S mowers. You're better off calling cub cadet directly and placing an order through them.

42 in. Mulch Kit for Riders and Zero Turn Lawn Mowers (2010-2014) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great + Plug Tip This mulch kit works awesome. We have almost 2 acres of heavily leafy area and this is so much easier than raking! Mow just like usual and it chops up the leaves and makes them biodegrade much more quickly than leaving them whole. Plus it's great fertilizer for your lawn! Plug Tip: Like other reviewers have said, the plug likely wont stay on. Spend a few bucks and get some zip ties. I used 5 zip ties to hold the plug on by drilling some small holes in the plastic plug (see image). So far so good. A few broke, just check and replace before mowing if you need to. I really doubt the plug would stay on without the zip ties. Avoid problems and use the ties or something similar. Other than needing to make the plug modification and check your zip ties, this mulching kit is awesome!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate Easy to install. Mulch plug retainer strap is hard to stretch onto retainer post. Blades are painted so cutting edge isn't particularly sharp. At least with tall grass you have go over twice; there doesn't seem to be enough lift for the grass in the wheel tracks. It's a little hard to tell how good the mulching is. A lot of material gets stuck under the deck and for really green (albeit somewhat long) grass it leaves an occasional lump on the lawn. I don't believe the deck is well designed for mulching. The blades are only partially shrouded (the front edge or the deck is flat) so the mulching airflow will not be uniform. This is the only riding mulcher I've had experience with so maybe this is as good as it gets but I can certainly imagine better. If you already have a Cub Cadet mower like this (2013 LTX1040), I'd recommend this mulching kit. If not and mulching is important to you I'd do more research before buying this mower and mulching kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a mulch kit I attached the mulching kit plug with the addition of 2 zip-ties(shown in photo) and have not had it fall off. I read about others that have it fall off and just decided to address the situation from the get go. To change the standard blades with the mulching blades does require a good size breaker bar or ratchet since the mount bolts are torqued to 70 to 90 ft-lbs. I only cut using the mulch kit, at full throttle and with the blade height adjuster in the 4th position. It leaves behind no grass clumps or piles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything it should The cover snaps into place under the discharge chute rod......and at the bottom of the deck.....tight fit, no problems. The blade changeover is simple.......if you have an impact gun run by an air compressor,(which I have). I tried first with a breaker bar just to see.....umm, no way. Plus, if you have an impact, deck removal is not required. Only thing I'm worried about is the quality of these blades.....I put one cut on the original blades (RZT 42 L Model), and when I inspected them after removal, I could not believe my eyes when I saw little nicks in the blade. I have a regular yard as well.......no sticks, stones, etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Bad Mulch Kit Compared to John Deere's Being a previous John Deere owner, I'm very disappointed in this mulch kit. Mulch and silt from mowing sprays the operator from the connection of the plastic plug and metal deck opening with the design of the plug keeping the grass chute open. Without a doubt, the dirtiest mowing experience I ever had. As with other reviews, I will need to modify the connection and provide an out let that won't spray me while mowing. Deere's design provides a metal steel plate with per-furcated holes to allow the fine mulch and silt to flow through the grass chute and away from the operator. As an engineer, I can't imagine this mulch kit passing any Q/C checks, other than it's over-priced, cheap material, bad design and doesn't work. Does not reflect well on Cub Cadet.
