I got this mulch kit in 2003/03 as an experiment. I was using my other 47" bagger to get the leaves up on about 4 acres which took about 3 weekends. The salesman at Sears said give it a try and if you don't like it bring it back. I loved it. It turned three weekends into a weekend and all the leaves go back as nutrients now. I even mulch my nature trails throughout 10 acres. I am very happy with it. The blades are heavy duty and I sharpen them 2 to 3 times a year. The blank is sturdy plastic but the design isn't all that great. Eventually debris gets jammed at the seam and it starts to raise up then you have to clear it- this generally doesn't happen with grass but with heavier debris and leaves, but I don't pick up everything before I mow. I am so satisfied with this kit I am looking to buy another. I have my $10 coupon but now I think I'll wait for it to come down to $40- yeah!
1. They sell you another set of mulch blades. It comes with mulch blades. 2. the The cutting deck mulcher cover is held on by bungee cords and if you happen to run over a pine cone it dislodges the cover and cuts itslf up. Cheep plastic with rubber bands--NOT SEARS QUALITY 3. The cover should be well fitting, made of metal and bolted on.
Had chat was told this was the correct part NOTHING worked blades were right length spindle hole to small,mulch cover was not even close ( Told chat the craftsman mower I had and he confirmed fit)
The kit had everything needed to convert my mower and the instructions were clear. The difference in the lawn cut has been phenomenal.
The entire hardware to attach cover was missing from this kit that I ordered.
Not much to say. When I finally received the complete package the contents for perfectly and the mulching had begun.
Easy to install perfect fitment.
