48" mulching kit from John Deere. The mulching attachment allows converting the mower so it can be used to mulch grass or leaves. Remember you will have to follow the 1/3rd rule. No more than 1/3 of the grass blade should be cut off at one time. This allows more efficient mulching and will promote the continued good health of the grass. If the desired cut height can't be achieved by cutting off 1/3, or there is clumping of the clippings, it may be required to cut higher; wait a day, then lower the mower and make a second pass. Mow at proper intervals approximately every 4 to 5 days.

 This kit includes two deflector ramps that are used to redirect the clippings into the blades for recutting. Specially shaped mulch blades with longer cutting edges that are designed to cut grass into fine clippings and direct them into the turf

 This kit also includes installation instructions. This kit does not fit 48C decks. If you are unsure which deck you have on your tractor email or call us so we can help you determine which deck you have.

Great fit bolted right in , all holes existed. Slow your cutting speed a bit, compared to normal. lawn looks like carpet after cutting. Should have purchased years ago.

This mulching kit was easy to install and my yard looks much better mowed with the mulching kit. No longer have grass blown up in piles and it mulches leaves also. I have noticed that I need to run the engine at a higher rpm than I did with just the regular mower to do the mulching. Should have bought this a long time ago. This was the best price I found on this kit and the shipping and delivery is very quick.

Good Mulcher
Great product at a great price. Relatively easy to install. Just need to drill a couple bolt holes in the deck. Nothing difficult.

48" Mulch Kit
This is a great product. Always frustrated with the grass clumps from previous cut but this eliminated it. Wish I had it when I bought my deck from your team. You should consider automatically bundling it and stating that it specifically fits the 48" replacement deck.
