Product Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grass Clumps I purchased the 42" mulching bladed a year and half ago and I would say they need some design improvements. The blades mulch okay in think lawns if you travel slow. If you travel an average speed in thick grass they rumble with wads of grass. They also leave a pile of grass when you stop and back up. I have to go over the grass clumped areas a second time to disperse the mulched grass piles. The plastic end shroud also doesn't fit snug and gets grass wedged into it. Sad to report that my older model Craftsman's push lawn mower does a much better job of mulching the same thick lawn grass areas than my 42" Cub Cadet does. I feel that the dual mulch blades need different top end angles/pitches to improve the grass mulching. They don't like thick grass lawns. I would say the mulch blades are fair in overall performance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what it seems… It was recommended for my mower…they were the wrong blades but the discharge plug works perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Star vs S shaped ?? I put in my model on this website, listed these as compatible blades. Since this is the first time replacing blades, had no idea about different types of bolt patterns. Why not list a different part number? Bummer. So First - Look under your mower......then purchase blades.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The discharge cover is trash The platic cover has metal post which fits into the front part of the deck, and a flimsy plastic flap which snaps into the rear of the deck. The plastic cover does not seat well into the deck and does not stop clipping discharge from the deck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mulch Kit on 42E XT1 Mulching works as advertised. For my electric 42E XT1, battery usage is about double the non-mulching setup -- important to know. Blade bolt and torque specs in the mulch kit manual are incorrect for the 42E XT1 deck as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST HAVE for your Cub Cadet 42 inch mower. Absolutely pulverizes the grass clippings into tiny pieces. There's very little clumping unless your grass is damp, but this is the best mulching kit on the best mower I've ever owned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks well built [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Haven't installed it yet. My ZT1 42e has been in the shop for over a month. Hopefully this kit will hold up better than the mower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong blades sent for a 42" [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My mower has a “star” mounting pattern to mount the blade on the spindle and cub cadet sent mulch blades with an “S” pattern.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mulch Kit [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Works great and easy to install. Only downside is that it seems to run the battery down quicker than normal on my ZT1 42E.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incorrect guidance from you system. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Your system generates parts for mowers that are wrong. Now I have to get another set that has the correct bolt hole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good product. It cuts really well! The plastic cap however lets a little grass through and makes it difficult to clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great blade, cover needs work. Blades are good, the cover doesn't stay completely closed and grass will come will come out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great blades, poor plug design The blades are great, but the mulch plug doesn’t fit the fabricated deck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but fit on LT42E dec could be improved [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The mulching plug "works", but isn't great. It doesn't fit tightly, which means it essentially always has about a quarter inch of old dead grass stuffed around its seam keeping it "plugging" the hole. Other mowers don't seem to have similar problems with mulching plugs that Cub Cadet does. The blades do a good job of mulching my lawn, including the leaves that are now falling. Leaves end up at about half-inch squares; grass is indiscernible. That said, it does, as other reviews have noted, inevitably shorten the battery life. I was able to get my full 1.5-acre hillside lawn mowed in one battery with the LT42E mower with just side discharge going. With the mulcher going instead I get about 65-75% of the way through it before needing to return to the shed for a battery top off of about an hour before completing the task. Not a big deal for me (I have other stuff I can do for an hour around the house), but may be a deal-breaker for others considering mulching with an electric mower. Still, it is an inevitable part of mulching grass (which takes more energy to chop it over and over again instead of just spitting it out), so not faulting the kit for that at all.
