This blade is similar in design to the gator mulching blades. I have found them to do the best job of mulching. The resulting material is a finer mulch than what the standard mulching blade produces. Highly recommended
I was pretty anxious to see how these performed in contrast to the original stock mulchers on my 2013 LT2000. Imagine my surprise when, after dropping the mower deck, I discovered that the end of the spindle where the blades are mounted is shaped like a six point star. If you look closely, these blades feature a five point spindle mounting "star" thingy. (Much cursing followed) Back to the store they went. What baffles me is the amount of mower blade part numbers I see on catalogs and this site, yet none seem to match. Speaking of stars, I'm giving this 1 because of the funky spindle configuration that was a complete unknown until I had the things pulled off.
Put in model number for blades and was given wrong size for my 42" mower. Cant find receipt so I'm having to eat them plus thespclet I bought to change them, which h was also the wrong size.
Description says these are for a 46" mower. THEY DON'T FIT. I had to drive to the store to return them and purchase the correct ones. While at the store they told me I would get an e-receipt. I never got it. When I finally got an email confirming shipment I saw that they never applied my rewards points.
