Answer

Using your mower deck with the blades on to clear your sidewalk of grass clippings does not work well. The recycler mulch kit is designed to keep the grass clippings in the deck to chop them up into smaller pieces and in counter to the objective described. Even with the mulch plug removed it will not work well as they are additional baffles included in this kit that will hinder debris clearing performance on a sidewalk. This being said, the mulch kit prevents the majority of clippings from mowing from getting onto the sidewalks.

How much do Home Depot charge to install the kit?

I don't have a catalog w/ me but I am very satisfied with the leaf and grass mulching of this attachment. I also own a John Deere/w 42 in deck and a Agri Fab vacuum that does an excellent job. But...I have to empty it frequently over the hill. The mulcher chops is fine enough that I can leave it to compost HOPE THIS HELPS.

I just want to buy the mulching blades. I already have the whole kit so is it possible to get replacement blades

The mulching works great, so it does what it’s supposed to do. But it only gets three stars because it doesn’t come with a cover for the discharge chute opening. One of the advantages of a mulching kit is that you no longer have a discharge chute getting in your way and limiting your maneuverability. But apparently Toro thinks a discharge chute should continue to get in your way even after you no longer have a use for it. The instructions tell you not to remove the chute for safety reasons. That’s ridiculous because the blades are no more accessible when the kit is installed than they were before (see picture). If anything they’re even harder to reach. At first I thought the opening might allow more grass to be tossed out, or maybe even other objects you might run over, but that hasn’t been the case. I might not make as much as the engineers at Toro, but apparently I’ve got way more common sense. I’ll make my own cover.

Response from ToroAug 20, 2018
Thank you for your feedback regarding our Timecutter Recycler kit. Glad to learn the mulching is working great for you. Regarding the side discharge chute, please leave this part on the deck and do not modify this part of the deck for any reason. Please know that this discharge is there for a second level of protection in case something were to come loose or puncture the baffle that is blocking the opening. Contact our your local Toro service mechanic (Toro.com/locator) if you have any further questions. Toro

Too easy to install. The knobs used to attach the inner shirts are really convenient but do not last. After about 15 hours one side vibrated off and got ran over. The blades hitting the metal skirt were trashed. The knobs were a very expensive and annoying convenience. Replaced them with nyloc nuts and blue locktite. So far, so good. That said, this thing mulches great. Chops the clippings into fine bits that return to yard and fields. Doesn't work quite as well when the grass is wet but still works well. Saves a lot of time and effort and really greens up the grass. Getting rid of the discharge chute also makes trimming so much easier and faster. It even fits between obstacles better saving weed whacking time. I would absolutely buy this again just wouldn't use their stupid knobs.

I have a SS5000 (50 inch version 2015 model) It took about 2.5 hrs to put together, I needed a hand on the middle deflector plate but everything else I was able to by myself. I just tried it out and it worked great on leafs, very cool that now you can drive right next to things from both sides! 1) instructions say take off deck and turn it upside down but that is a lot more work, so i jacked it up front with jack stands for safety. 2) instructions are not very good and they leave out many steps, I was missing one screw plus the pictures are vague. 3) first thing take off plastic deflector and mine had a internal metal deflector plate underneath to remove. 4) two of the holes you will need have bolts in them so FYI to take them out. 5) the blades look very similar to what my came with but of course change them out with what it came with. 6) take off the old blades 7) you will have two big metal deflectors, the one that has some cuts outs on one side you put on last and it fits near the opening. get the screws handy with washers so when you get them to fit through the holes you can put the screw/cap on. 8) Next I put the plastic deflectors (I needed a short screw driver), the middle one i was able to get to by taking out the battery and mounting plate and then my wife screwed it in while I was holding the plate underneath. 9) Then put on the blades and any remaining hardware I used to fill in the prior mounting holes for hardware. 10) enjoy :)

Great mulching kit
I bought the mulch kit as I like to use the grass clippings to feed the lawn. It is a couple steel parts that help fully enclose the blades. The blades it came with appear to be identical as the ones on it already. I left my old blades on as they look identical and are new. It mulches great with some issues. First I cut my Lawn on the slow smart speed setting. At the high setting bumps are to much for my back. Even on the slow setting in dense parts of the yard you will hear a pitch change. When you hear this the vacuum of the blades has all the air above the blades full of grass clippings. You have two choices at this point. Slow down and wait for the pitch to return to normal or drive on and have clumpy mulch. The grass will still get cut but you can see mulch clumps. When I cut my lawn slowing down at the pitch change in one dense area you can see no grass clippings at all. My neighbor who bagged his grass was so impressed he went and bought a mulching kit for his cub cadet. It was just a plug and blades. He has bad clumps and is disappointed. Also the time cutters slow speed is still far faster than his. He is set on buying one like mine someday. My other neighbor who cuts his grass before me gets lots of clumps from his snapper. I raise my deck all the way up so I don't cut a stripe in his yard and mulch his clump piles up. He loves my mower too! So why not 5 stars? If you use the insanely fast mow and go speed you will have clumps. The steel parts are heavy and not packaged well enough to prevent the paint from scratching. So if you hate rust you will be painting them before installing. Over all I love my mower and the mulching kit. Plus I have an extra set of blades.

Mulch Kit (Recycle Kit)
I ordered from Home Depot and had it shipped to my home. It arrived in an undamaged box. All of the pieces were wrapped in paper or plastic or in a internal cardboard box. All of the components were included as described and no dings or scratches. I followed the instructions for installation. (removal of the mower was not hard) All of the parts went on without a problem. It took me just under two hours. I think I went slow and cleaned the bottom of the mower as I went and I did not have any assistance. I did use one reviewers advice however, I did not use the plastic knobs to hand tighten the steel guards. I used regular nuts and a wrench to tighten them as I suspect normal vibrations will not keep hand tightened plastic fasteners in place. The mower blades were sharp and ready to go. All of the holes needed in my mower were in the right spot. No drilling needed. As other reviewers noted, I also removed the now useless side shoot guard to make the mower usable from either side plus it fits through the gate better. This is an excellent adapter kit. I mow about two acres but I am retired and not in a hurry. I don't see any difference in the time. Mulching grass is far better than shooting it out to the mowed side. For the price they should include a metal cover so that the mower deck looks continuous and you wouldn't see the top of the guard. My mower is for mowing the grass and not part of a machine show, so I guess that's OK. These are genuine Toro parts.
