Rated 4 out of 5 by Dogo from Not bad, but not the best Got the mulch kit when I bought my tractor July 2019. Used it for the remainder of the season. Did a pretty good job. Not the best mulching blades I've used but clearly good enough to get the job done. Plug gets some grass clippings caught in the openings but it's pretty easy to pull them out when you flush out the deck. sometimes clippings slip out and leave a trail. Just rerun over them again and they get mulched again. Don't understand all the lost love in the reviews. It's a mulch kit. Puts the clippings back in the lawn. No bagging kit required. No heavy bags to dump. Not sure what they expect, but it works for me just fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by arco_iris from Mulch builds up & causes cover to lift, bad design Fitted by the dealer at time of purchase of brand new machine, as others have said the cover does not stay tightly closed so clippings fly out. Had a go at modifying it by putting a 1/4" bolt up through the flange of the deck, to prevent it moving outwards but after a while the cover has jumped up over my peg so got to have another go. I shouldn't have to do this on an expensive machine, it would be better if it was made of metal, or the plastic cover had more fixings. As this is an ongoing issue complained about by many, Cub Cadet obviously don't read these criticisms or do anything about it. Won't be buying another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KDawg from Blades are great but deck plate is not I bought this mulching kit to cut down on the amount of bagging and try to be a bit more environmentally conscious but it has been, well not the best experience. The plastic cover fits poorly as several others have mentioned. The poor fit results in clumps of grass and a lot of dirt and grass on the mower. I used some duct tape to seal the gap and that worked for a short while to cut down on the dirt and dust but not the clumps. With long grass or leaves I just end up with lines of debris that I have to go back and rake. Love the tractor, not the mulching kit!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ColaKing from Average Changed to these thinking that would prevent me from having to bag. Not really. Still clumps. We have some thick Palisade Zoysia grass, so it may have been inevitable anyway. Now I'm going to have to put the original blades back on and buy the bagger (which looks to have bad reviews and high price).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Waldvogel lawn care from love and hate Got this and clipping where going everywhere had to rig it and drill a hole in the deck and put a bolt through so thats the plug would stay shut and sealed! i would ditch those blades and buy the xtreme blades too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nick M from Much kit I bought my mower 3 years ago which I’m very happy with the purchase. I also bought the mulch blade kit. I’ve tried to make this function as it should no matter how I modifiy it. No matter what I do the grass pushed the door cover out releasing big clumps of grass that this option was supposed to prevent. It’s better than not having it and it’s far from perfect. I’ll keep trying to make it better and if I do I’ll update this review.
