Would Not Purchase Ariens Oom 42!
I bought a zoom 42 Ariens zero turn mower.
I thought that the mower mulch kit was a simple plug fit that fit in the hole in the discharge chute.
Now I need to remove the blades And mower deck to install a simple plug style cover.
The type I had on my Cub Cadet 50 tractor mower.
I should have checked into this BEFORE buying my Ariens.

Joseph's Experience With Mowers Direct
"The only problem was I purchased this mower at end of season.
I contacted the Mowers Direct people by phone during the first week of December.
After finding out I could get a savings off the discount price buy paying with check.
I sent my check vis USPS the company held it one week before I could get the shipping started
Old Dominion freight shipped it to their station in deep South Texas before I was contacted.
It was finally delivered 12-30-15. I had to pay $50.00 for a lift gate delivery service.
Mowers Direct did pay the freight to Texas."
The mower works great but I'd probably not buy the mulcher again. Grass cuttings are somewhat smaller but not that much and doesn't seem to justify the hassle of putting it on and the cost, very hard to put on, one of the bolts was stripped so I was not able to put the self tightening nut on it, on the left side, grass clipping spew out as it doesn't make a perfect seal (this may be an intended design).
Cons:Heavy, Difficult To Use
