    Q:Is this supposed to come with the bolts for assembly? Mine did not, and the manual just says it should include assembly tools, without specifically mentioning the bolts as included.

      Q:So I can order the mulch kit but not just the blades? I don't need a mulch kit, my soil is sandy so why don't you or Ryobi just sell me the (replacement) blades that the machine came with?

        Nice Kit, No Replacement Blades
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like the kit on my mower. Unfortunately, you cannot buy replacement blades for this and that can cause a problem when you bend/break a blade.

            I purchased this new to the market item...i love the mower... However I have zero love for the mulch kit..... This needs to go back to the engineers/drawing board... I installed and reinstalled the kit to make sure I did it correctly... Did not pick up any leaves..... Did not mulch... The regular blades are better than it.... Glad i kept my old Husqvarna, because I have 9 trees in my front yard.. I was also highly upset with the cost, especially soccer it did not work....i thought it should have been included with mower

                This mulch kit does exactly what it was designed...
                This mulch kit does exactly what it was designed to do, mulch grass and leaves. The blades are thinner than the ones that came with the mower originally. There are, as expected differences in the blades, the blade has a shorter cutting edge on the blade and has more of a upward bend than the original blades, designed for lift. I mentioned earlier that the blades are not as thick as the one’s you’ll be taking off. So I highly suggest that you check your grass for any tree branches or other debris before you mow. I don’t know if these blades are going to stand up very well if you cut small twigs and branches. The installation was a breeze, the hardest thing to do was to get the front end on ramps to begin. Read the directions and look over your parts before you begin. The PCs. That are shaped as a “Y” go between the mower blade sections, and the bolt holes for installation are not in the middle, they are more to the top of the deck and I can see how easily it would be for someone to start drilling because they didn’t read the directions. Overall, installation took about 30 minutes and cut is good, mulches nice. Just not sure of the blades longevity. Cheers!
