            Good value
            I couldn't afford the mulching kit so I bought just the plug / I have to say for the money well worth the price I would add a before and after photo but this app does not want to let me do that

              Works fine; recommended install not so much
              Works perfectly well on my D125 although I chose to install it a bit differently. I never don't mulch so I chose to take the chute assembly off. Then instead of placing the cover on top of the deck I worked the back sloped edge of the cover UNDER the metal mover deck and then push (a little effort) the rounded edge down into the mower deck rolled edge. The front of the cover sits on the outside of the deck. Gives a much better fit. It doesn't clog or seem to impede the mulching action at all. Has never fallen off, never an issue. Works for me.

                I just purchased a 2017 John Deere D130, upgrading from a push-behind. Not having any place to dispose of my clippings, I've always mulched the grass. Most of the reviews I've read here and on the HD page for this product are focused on installation challenges. I've seen some people that have removed the grass chute and the metal rock guard, but it's not necessary. I've taken some photos, which hopefully come across way better than the faded black and white instructions in the box and anything you'll find on JD's website. I'll take you the process, step by step, below. But first, let's talk about whether "mulching" just requires having this plug and keeping the standard blades. For my D130, and my grass today (relatively long and with some morning dew), the answer is a resounding "yes." I'll likely swap the standard blades out with mulching-specific blades when it's time, but for my 22HP engine and 42" deck, at a 3-1/2" setting, there was no clumping, even with morning dew on the grass tips. Now, let's get that mulch plug installed! The most-challenging part for most will be just getting the grass chute and rock guard up and out of the way so you can see what you're doing. I used a bungee cord at first, but then figured out how to raise and lock the rock guard, which keeps both the guard and the chute clear. The manual says to un-hook the battery and do everything else to make absolutely sure the blades don't randomly start spinning. So, do this all at your own risk. - If you pull the rock guard towards you a little, and to the right, it should unlock so you can lift it up. - Then, if you push it back to the left, while it's in the "up" position, it should lock in place. (Now you can see everything) - Sit on the ground looking at the opening, now work left to right. - In order to not scratch your deck's paint, come from the inside-out with the left hook (work it around a little bit so it locks in--your mulch plug will be upside down). Almost every photo/video have this going from outside-in, but you'll easily scratch your deck's paint. - Next, flip your mulch plug right-side up (rubber band will be twisted, see pic). - Now, feed the left side of the mulch plug into the left side of the opening, so the middle tab on the plug sits flush behind the left side of the deck opening (see pic below). - The bottom of your mulch plug should be sitting in the lip of the deck. - Next, align the cut-out on the top of the mulch plug to fit around the base hinges of the grass chute/rock guard (see pic below). - At this point, everything should feel tight and secure and fitting nicely. - Lastly, take the hook on the right side of the plug and, from behind the bracket to the deck wheel, place the curved hook in the small hole, closest to the wheel (see pic below). Now, you can undo your bungee or just unlock the rock guard and the guard and grass chute will fall back into place. Don't worry if they don't go all the way back down, everything will still work.

                  Delivery was on time. Took me a little while to try it but I did today and I am very pleased. We have had some rain so I wasn’t sure if it would work well but it did great. I will try it with dry leaves also but I think them being wet they laid back down better. You will have to figure out hight for your yard and what you are mulching. I have only tried it on leaves. I have a lot of trees and the lower areas of my back yard I want it Look natural but neat. I blow the leaves from the up yard down there and then mulched it and it is somewhat un-level so I have a couple of places that scalped but I can fix that with a rake. I’m sure I will I will learn more as I use it but overall I’m very happy with it

                  Good alternative to a more expensive mulching kit. Not quite as good as the mulching kit and mulching blade but now have the ability to switch to bagging
