My husband and I purchased this kit to install on our Craftsman garden tractor once the snow is gone the spring. We have a similar kit on our other mower deck and think it helps with making the grass clippings and leaves much smaller. The kits are easy to install but are somewhat pricey. We decided to buy this kit because it was marked down due to the Sears Hardware store in our neighborhood going out of business.
Tried to install mulch kit on our mower, but found that the straps provided needed Superman to stretch them. The hole for the front strap is in front of the mower deck wheel and not accessible. I know how to fix the problems, but, I'm wondering, it's a shame someone didn't try to install the kit during the planning phase.
The blades seem perfectly adequate, however regarding the plastic mulching cover, on my 54" GT6000, the forward latch spring assembly has nothing to attach to and hangs loose. The whole attachment scheme seems designed by 6-year-olds. Somehow the cover seems to stay in place anyhow. Nonetheless, weird and not at all polished or thought out. It's just barely recommendable since it seems to work despite it's shortcomings.
Purchased for the YT 4500 Craftsman tractor, and although not given much use yet, they are less noisy and better balanced than the bagging knives that came with the tractor. They mulch very well. Very happy with the product, but disappointed that it wasn't included with the purchase of the tractor.

I bought this kit I 2010 .Im still using it at the end of 2012. I have never sharpened it yet. It's going strong for three seasons now cutting 2 scares of lawn every week for the entire spring summer and falls for 3 yrs stright. I don't have to rakeor puck up any grass after I mulch. It just crushes the grass to find bits which is good as manure for the lawn .
