Very easy to install on my 46" deck and works well. Some others have made mention of hardware coming loose or not being able to get a replacement cover. I used 271 "blue" Loctite to secure the screws for the rubber hooks. If you do need to replace the cover, 532406581 is the part number for the cover in the 46" kit.
Need to make this apparent on the product specifications. If you want to buy a mulch kit or Blades for your 46" Craftsman LT 2000, you have to buy the MTD kit. It was a total pain to try to figure out exactly which kit to buy. I figured that if there was only 1 craftsman 46" mulch kit that it would pretty much be a no brainer. Not so.
I was thrilled to get this mulching kit for my Craftsman tractor. However, when I got it and installed it, I have a serious concern that the deck plug will not last long. It is made of very thin plastic and the first big rock or other hard object that accidentally gets in my mower deck will go right through the plug.
This tractor mulching kit was easy to install using my new "lift." Once installed, the mulching kit will stay on all year round. Not just for leaves, but for normal grass cutting too. It does a beautiful job on the lawn, and no more worries of anything being thrown out the side of the mower. I am very happy with this purchase!
This kit fit on my craftsman yard tractor with no problem and no modifications. Mulches the clippings very well. Glad I purchased.
