As for the cutting, I didnt know what to expect. I guess they performed better than expected, but I had to drive slower than expected. Im used to speeding around the yard at a fast pace, whereas with these blades and the port cover, you need to take your time. If you dont the clippings do not have enough time to be mulched and will clump a bit. If this happens, just go back over the clippings and they will be minced up. But to get it in one sweep, I put the mower on a slow pace and just sat back and enjoyed the day. My grass was really long and yet the set up still mulched 90% of the clippings to a non noticeable size.
Only issue I had personally and was due in fact to my worry of loose blades, was that the clippings inside the deck when mowing make a much louder sound than with a discharge port. I guess because the clippings clump and smack against the newly installed port blocker. It just made me think the blades were banging around under there when in fact it was just grass being demolished. No issue really, just had to get used to the new sound.
I recommend this kit. However I will be attempting to re-sharpen the blades instead of buying new ones next time. They are no different then the ones I took off. Just a bit sharper.
It is close -- the old and new shield clearly share most of the same design, but everything is a little off. The new shield is too high and also does not extend laterally far enough to meet the mower deck. Therefore, there is a gap about a foot long and an inch wide between the deck and the shield. I suspect that the mower deck/ shield was redesigned sometime between the time we bought the tractor and the time this was made.
We have jury rigged the new shield in place and it sorta works. I am not sure if I will continue to use this or go back to the older partially functional unit.
Incidentally, the box is label "Electrolux" not Husqvarna. I assume that Electrolux also sells a mower made by Husqvarna? But the contents of the box are clearly exactly the same as the illustrations at Amazon, so I am sure the wrong part was not shipped in error.
and I thought that this would fit. It
I bought this mostly for the mulching discharge shield, but also figured I would get an extra set of mulching blades.
In my opinion, having a mulching blade is a must have if you have a riding lawn mower. Not only does it cut down on the time to bag and dispose of clippings, the small pulverized clippings provide about 50% of the fertilizer needs of the lawn each year. My lawn and my neighbors lawn went in at the same time and we water them the same. Mine is a dark green and richer lawn. His is more yellow and stays green for less of the year. He's now switching to mulching blade.
