                        Despite the instructions, it does not fit very well.
                        The short story is, JD should tell you to take off both guards before installing this, and then leave them off. If you leave the guards on, they won’t go down correctly and frankly, look stupid. They hang up from where they should be. The mulch cover works fine, but the instructions suck.

                          Works as advertized
                          Saw some negative ratings and was a little worried about it working / fitting while waiting for it to arrive. Those feeling quickly went away once I received it. Fit and worked just like the original did on my Z245. The blades seem designed more for lift for use with a bagger, a dedicated mulch blade would make this system top notch. Photo's taken after I had mowed two large yards of 4" grass. 4 is a great rating for me as nothing on earth is perfect and I always want things I buy to be cheaper.

                          For D140 Remove the chutes first!!!!
                          You can only get it to fit by removing inner and outer deflecotrs first. Just reove the two nuts and don't bother putting the delectors back on since they serve no function with the mulch cover in place.
