Yes it fits, takes 60-90 minutes to install, but doesn’t work very well. I ended up taking mine off. Kept having to stop and close it again every couple of minutes.

I installed the mulch kit on a Z335E mower with a 42" mower deck. You will need to remove the deck from the machine unless you have a lift as some of the fasteners must be attached from the bottom. Start to finish, this job took me about an hour. The instructions were pretty clear, I only had to have pretty basic metric tools. The kit comes with a set of mulching blades. After installation, the mulch kit has a lever on the top of the deck. You turn the lever to close a gate and mulch the grass. Turn the lever the other way and the gate opens for side discharge mowing. It couldn't be much easier! The parts seem to be high quality. I felt the price was a bit on the high side. You get what you pay for I guess.

Overall, I'm disappointed and will likely remove this mulch kit. It's true that the cut grass ends up chopped into smaller pieces, but the price you pay for that (aside from the kit cost) is mowing MUCH slower, more often, and, frankly, you still get stripes and random uncut bladed. I'd rather deal with the clippings.

A must for anyone who doesn't like grass clippings all over your lawn, especially when the grass is long. The mulching kit works quite well and reduces dust and small particles which helps with my allergies, but also keeps more of the debris off the mower. The kit was easy to install, only took about an hour which includes new mulching blades as well. If the grass is wet I simply flip the lever to open the chute as mulching wet grass doesn't work well.

Starts immediately, has an oil drain hose. That may not sound important until you drain oil all over the place using the original setup. T does vibrate/shake a bit as if the new mulching blades really are not balanced at all.

The mulch control kit works great. It was a little hard to install because the directions were not clear and the pictures hazy, i think I was also given instructions to another model. It is definitely a nice addition to the mower, however.
