Works great, even on long grass. Was going to buy a bagger but thought we would try this first and glad we did. A lot less money and a lot less work - no dumping grass every time we cut. It is all invisible in our lawn.
A friend of mine had a craftmans riding mower with a mulch kit on it and I liked the way it cut the grass, so I thought I would get one, so far I like the way the grass is cut, very neat and my yard looks good, I like my craftsman riding mower, hope I don't every need another mower, but If I do I will look at Sears first.
Mulch kit easy to assemble and does the job as long as you don't wait until the grass is 2 feet deep. Otherwise it just clogs up. Easily fixed run once without mulch flap on and then again with flap on.
There are at least two 46" mulch kits available from Sears and they don't necessarily show up near each other in the search results. I wasted time by ordering the wrong one. The correct one is just like the original kit that came with my mower. The fit is really tight.
Environmentally responsible way to maintain your yard. No more piles of grass clippings, they decompose in the yard and feed your lawn. They will also still work to bag your clippings or leaves in the fall so no need to change back to regular blades. Consumer Reports gave them a positive review.
We should have ordered a mower with the mulching kit and did not. This is a great product and I wish we would have purchased it at the beginning of the summer. Mulches really good.
This is the second kit I've bought in the past 4 years. There were no obstacles under mower and cover was double checked for proper installation. Engaged blades and a six inch hunk blew off nothing hit the cover. Upon inspection the cover had a bad molding. Sears does not offer just the cover..... Am I going to spend another $55 at Sears ... Nope... found one on **** just the cover for $24.
I read a few reviews about this kit prior to purchase and although I was skeptical I bought this kit. I found it easy to install (less than 30minutes). The blades are marked as to which direction to install and they lock well into place. I have been using this kit for three weeks now and am completely satisfied.
I needed to replace the mulching plate on my 46" tractor, but they don't sell just the plate, have to buy the entire kit! It had lasted 2 years before the bungy cords holding the clips on broke. The new one didn't even last a complete trip around my yard before breaking in the exact same spot! Not sure what I'll do now, don't want to spend another $59.75 for another gamble?
