This kit is a BARGAIN at $39.99 (super saver shipping = free) when compared to brick & mortar stores (or other online sites) at $49.99 and up. It's made by Electrolux and has adapter hardware (nuts, spacers, bolts) included. I ordered it for a Husqvarna 48-inch riding mower and the kit included all mounting bolts, mulching blades, cover plate, and instructions for step-by-step mounting plus pictures. Except for the spacer bolt assembly (not needed), everything went on easily. The cover plate is notched for securing it to the mower platform and all items fit exactly. Overall assembly takes about 10 minutes for the cover assembly, and approximately 15-20 minutes for removal of the three (3) original blades and attaching the mulching blades, depending on your degree of handiness. I'd recommend either dropping the mower deck for blade assembly or suspending the machine using drive-up ramps (my preference). Good job Amazon.com for a fine product at a terrific price!!

2013 update: After using the above for two years, I've discovered that the weakest link is the S-hooks which secure the cover plate to the mower deck. Grass tends to get caught under the cover plate, forcing it up and exposing the spinning blade. Not a safe way to operate a riding mower. I've since had to forgo the above assembly unit in favor of using the original mower blades and cover opening. Until I can find stronger springs or a method to secure the cover to the deck with screws, it will remain off this year. Therefore, I'm downgrading my original rating from 5 stars to 3 stars as it's still a great bargain at the price but needs additional engineering tweaks.

I own a Craftsman 48" Lawn Tractor (model 917.27670). The Sears mulching kit for this mower is item #07124148000. After some research on the internet, I had a hunch that they are the same. When the Husqvarna 954040495 arrived and the owners manual said that it was for model Non MK48A & 241480, I was relieved. This is the exact part that you can buy from Sears for $69.99! Everything fit like a glove. The Sears item shows a picture of a strap which this does not have. The strap is not needed as this item installs beautifully and is almost half price.

This Mulching Kit was the best price I found on the net and was very easy to install. This has been a life saver for me as the bagging of the 3/4's of an acre yard was taking forever to mow. I highly recommend this mulching kit.

I ordered this unit to use on my 48" Husqvarna with a 23hp Briggs and Stratton engine (YTH23V48).

INSTALLATION:
The discharge cover did not fit correctly. My deck must be a different year than the other reviewers who claim it fit fine. Mine did not have the holes where the instructions specified (they weren't anywhere close). I bought my mower from Lowes in April 2010. With a little engineering, i was able to get the cover securely mounted. The blades fit fine and seemed as beefy as the OEM blades.

PERFORMANCE:
The mulching blades are not designed to lift the grass as the "HI lift" OEM blades are. The result is almost no suction at all on the grass while mowing. I used to have great mowing lines and a perfectly level cut. Not with the mulching blades, they leave light directional lines for each blade and do not look aesthetically pleasing as the OEM blades do. Also, since there is no suction, the grass is not as even as with the OEM blades.

The kit made my engine bog down in heavy grass that was not wet. The grass was lush and green (probably had high moisture content in the grass itself) but wasn't wet to the touch. My grass was not that long either as I was mowing every 5 days. This caused me to have to mow at about half the speed previously did. After several weeks without rain i now have a browner, less lush yard, and I can once again mow normal speed w/o bogging down the engine.

The mulch kit does a good job mulching, if you can tolerate the aforementioned negatives. It only left small trails of clippings when my grass was thick and lush and it was cutting about and inch and a half off the top. When mowing parts of my yard that weren't as thick there were no trails of clippings.

I am contemplating trying the Gator brand mulching blades which are supposed to have better lift. But i may just switch back to my HI lift non-mulching blades and mow more frequently to minimize the clippings.

I was skeptical that this product would fit my new tractor, but I was pleased that it did. Easy installation and a great price. The big box store wanted almost $65 for a similar mulch kit. If you have a Husqvarna 48-inch cut tractor and as long as the deck is a stamped vice welded deck, this will fit.

Have not tested blades yet but the cover fits my YTH2448 snug. Doesn't allow grass clippings to shoot through. I expect blades to be comporable quality to OEM. Using the gator blades now.

Mulching kit saved me from raking clippings. However, you need to take your time and learn how to mow over HIGH grass and/or wet grass. You'll need to go slower and feel how your mower responds; sometimes, you'll need to make multiple passes, also.

In a short time, I've learned the limitations of mulching vs. discharging and have not have any problems.

This kit was easy to install. Make sure you have a torque wrench to ensure proper tightening of the blade bolts without overtightening.

Can't wait to see how it does mulching autumn leaves!
