WORKS GOOD
I HAVEN'T HAD THE PROBLEMS MENTIONED BY THE OTHER REVIEWERS EXCEPT FOR THE FRONT OF THE CHUTE COVER POPPING UP FROM TIME TO TIME AND I JUST POP IT BACK DOWN WITH MY FOOT, UNTIL I FIXED IT PERMANANTLY BY SIMPLY DRILLING A SMALL HOLE AND PUTTING A COTTER PIN IN THE BRACKET SO IT CAN'T POP OUT OF IT. OTHERWISE, REGARDING THE OTHER COMPLAINTS, BE SURE YOUR SCREWS ARE VERY TIGHT AND YOUR HOOKS ARE SEATED PROPERLY, EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO TAKE SOME NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS AND GIVE THEM A LITTLE MORE OF A CURVE. ENGINEERS ARE A LONG WAY FROM PERFECT. SOMETIMES THEIR DESIGNS NEED SOME CONSUMER MOTIFICATION.

Craftsman Mulch Kit
The blades work fine and mulch quite well. Problem, the mulch plug does not attach like the instructions say. There is no hole to attach the front rubber on the mower. I had to drill a hole for the hook to go into for attachment. Also, the rear rubber is supposed fit around the spacer on the 1/4 inch bolt. That does not work properly, there is no clearence for the hook to go around the spacer.I am a retired Ironworker so I made everything fit the correct way.

Quality Product with nice fitment

Great product, rugged and excellent fitment. Has to be put together but not hard. Springs are very strong but may lighten up as the rubber stretch. Look for coupons and get at a great price! Would definitely recommend.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

How long will it last?

Agree with comment on how tight the tie-down straps are -- both are stretched past their max length. Wonder how long before they either pull out the screws in the plastic guard or rip through the holes in the straps themselves. They definitely hold the guard in place.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A must for the health of your lawn

A good mulching kit is essential for your lawn and also for the leaves in the fall. Don't waste all the nutrients by bagging it up, just mulch it with this kit and add to your top-soil level. This kit is very easy to install and functions as advertised. I recommend lightly sharpening the blades with a hand file for best results as the paint that is on the blades from the factory impacts the effectiveness of the mulching. I have found the mulching function works best at 3in cut and lower. Anything over this level creates an air gap in your mower deck and the trimmings tend to discharge out the front of the mower. I like to mow at a longer cut (for the health of the lawn) so this is a minor concern otherwise I would give a 5 star rating. This issue most likely is a mower specific issue (deck) so you may have different results with your mower and type of grass you cut. It is also nice to be able to remove the stock discharge chute. With a large deck (54in) the chute sticks out another foot which can be cumbersome during close landscaping mowing. The mulching kit allows for removal of the chute and a more maneuverable tractor is the result!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

craftsman tractor mulch kit

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Mulching Kit Rocks

Great option. I have an acre of lawn, am not about to rake it. Mulching adds about 15% of nutrients back into the soil. Replacement blades

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Bad Engineering

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.

Blades seem decent, but cover is not thought out

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
