  9 Questions
Q: Will this mulch kit work on my YTH2348 (96045000500) with an 08/08 build date?
by Eric from Texas on September 04, 2013

A: Yes, your model is most likely classified as either a late model 2008 or a 2009. This mulch kit is going to work on 2007 models and newer, so I do not see any reason why this would not work.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this kit come with 2or 3 blades? The picture shows only 2, but they show 3 on other web sites.
by Tony from Alabama on May 12, 2013

A: Tony - the HU48 mulch kit includes 3 mulching blades.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will this fit a YTH24K48/96045003500
by Fred Eschler from Oregon on May 10, 2013

A: Fred - yes, the Husqvarna HU48 mulch kit will fit a YTH24K48 tractor.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will this mulch kit work for a husky GTH2548?
by Mark from Indiana on June 17, 2011

A: Mark - the HU48 mulch kit will NOT work on your tractor. The GTH series tractors have a fabricated (welded) mower deck. The HU48 mulch kit will only work a stamped mower deck. You would need Husqvarna number 965 89 40-03. mulch kit
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have a 2011 yth2348 3 blade 48" deck what is the proper mulching kit?
by Mike from Ohio on June 05, 2011

A: Mike - the HU48 mulch kit is the correct kit for a Husqvarna YTH23V48 lawn tractor. Don't be misled by the image that only shows two blades. This kit has 3 blades, just like your mower deck. HU48 mulch kit
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will this kit fit a husky YTH24V48LS with a fabricated deck?
by Wes from New York on May 17, 2011

A: Wes - the HU48 mulch kit WILL NOT fit a tractor with a fabricated deck. This mulch kit will only work on models with a stamped deck. If your YTH23V48LS is a 2009 model or newer, then the 965 89 40-03 zero turn mulch kit will work on your tractor. We sell this mulch kit on our web site. If your tractor is a 2008 or older model, you will need to contact Husqvarna to find out the proper mulch kit.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Todd, In the picure your mulching kit for the 2348 appears to have only 2 blades while the mower has 3 blades. Can you clarify this issue for me? Thanks
by Ed Loudermilk from Georgia on May 08, 2011

A: Ed - this mulch kit would contain 3 mulching blades, as the Husqvarna 48" mower deck requires 3 blades.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I am looking for blades only. Husqvarna 48 inch cut 3 blades tractor style mower. mulching blades.
by Terry from Kansas on May 03, 2011

A: Terry - the mulch blade for a Husqvarna tractor with a 48" mower deck is part # 532 17 39-21. We offer these on our web site.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I am looking for a mulch kit for my EZ4824. it has three blades, will this kit work? If not what kit do I need
by Bob from Michigan on May 01, 2011

A: Robert - The Husqvarna EZ4824 zero turn mower has a WELDED mower deck. The correct mulch kit for a Husqvarna zero turn mower with a 48" welded mowing deck is a Husqvarna 965 89 40-03. We carry this mulch kit on our web site and it sells for $169.99.

Works Well
I purchased mulch kit at the same time I bought a new mower. It appears to be the exact same blades preinstalled on mower that are in mulch kit. For me the only useful part is the plastic mulch cover. The kit and the mower work great and mulches great.

Does A Good Job!
Directions for installing were a little hard to follow...after I figured them out, the install went well. Product did a very good job of mulching fall leaves. No more bagging! Just wish I had located this product earlier! Very satisfied

Option 3
I was sick of seeing my grass clumping all over my yard after I mowed. I knew I had 3 options to cure the problem: bag it, sweep it, or mulch it.

Bagging was out because of the extra time and effort of disposing the clippings. Also, bagging equipment cost more and takes up more room on and around a riding tractor. Sweeping is cheaper yet, but awkward in tight places. And you still have to dispose of the clippings. This left me to my only option of a mulching kit.

Mulching pros:... more

A Must Have!
The mulcher helps with the lawn clippings tremendously. They didn't have it in stock at Lowe's where we bought the tractor. So, we bought it through this website and received it quickly. There are three blades, even though the picture may show only two. The quality of the blades is on par with the brand-excellent. However, the instructions and diagram included were a little confusing. Overall we are happy with the purchase once we installed them.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Bad Instructions

Wrong Parts For My Mower
I ordered a mulching kit for a 48" Husqvarna mower from your website. I purchased a YTH24V48LS last year and wanted the mulching blades and chute discharge cover. Received the parts, installed the blades and rotated them by hand to ensure they did not hit the housing. All seemed good until I engaged the mower and heard a metal to metal sound. I looked under the mower and could see the blades had hit end to end. Removed the blades and compared them to the old ones and found they were... more

A Decent Mulch Kit For The Price.
I have the 48" Husqvarna "Fast Tractor" with the tube reinforced stamped deck. The mulch cover didn't seem to install the way it was supposed to. I may have the wrong kit, but I was able to hook in the front strap/hook to one of the holes for the deck roller and it doesn't interfere with the little tire. In thicker turf grass (full, thick lawns about 4.5-5" tall, it leaves a row of cut grass along the right side of the deck when mowing quickly. If I slow down to about half... more
Pros: Durable, Price, I'd Buy It Again

Mulching Kit For Husquvarna 48" Tractor
I installed the kit on my tractor and it kept clogging up where the chute used to be. I had to stop and unclog the grass several times. The grass I was cutting was approx. 3"-4" long. I checked the blades to make sure I had installed them correctly, and they were on the correct way. Also the installation of the chute provided allows the strap towards the rear of the mower to keep slipping off the bolt system provided.

Well Pleased
I bought a new Husqvarna 24 hp riding lawn mower and wanted to switch it over from side discharge to mulching.

I ordered the mulching kit from your company and I must say, I am well pleased with the whole transaction. The shipping time was short, the product was in excellent condition, and the quality of the product is five star.

It does an excellent job on my lawn, and the price was much better than the price was from where I bought the tractor. I would definitely recommend your... more

Husqvarna R322t Awd Owner
Found the mulching kit on Mower Direct works great and tech support was able to tell me that the unique 48 inch front mower deck was similar to the Husqvarna standard 48 inch riding mower deck. Mulching kit fit like a charm.
