Some Problems But Works Great
Initially I was not pleased when the box arrived. It had been beaten during shipment I assume and one post on a baffle was bent and wouldn't line up with the predrilled holes in the deck. The other baffle had damaged treads on one post.

After I re-threaded the stud and straightened the other installation was a snap! Without the issues it would have taken approx 20 min to install the kit.

The lawn looks great with no residue left on the grass. If the grass is really long you may have to... more

Change Your Mower To Toro
I bought the Toro for my husband. His other lawnmower was noisy and took him 4 hours or more to cut the grass. His new mower he loves, it's quiet now his gets the grass done in 2 hours. My great grandson loves it even more. He has his seat between his Pa-Pa. It's so much quieter he can fall asleep. My husband said that when he first started cutting the grass, he had to look back to see if it was cutting it, he said there is a big difference from his old mower. It was a different brand... more

Mulch Kit
Kit very well built. Very easy to install. Before installing the new blades you should sharpen them. They come powder coated and don't feel too sharp. I installed them like that and they cut, but not too well... I read about people complaining about that, so I found out that sharpening them will fix the problem.

Mulching Blades!
I highly recommend changing regular blades to mulching blades...not only do you not throw grass in the street but you do not have all that grass cuttings all over your yard! Just makes your yard look so much nicer! We love this kit!!!

Easy Installation
Took me about an hour by myself to install, and I haven't had a chance to use it yet. It recommends leaving on the deflector but I removed it since I wanted the narrower deck. The cost seems reasonable for what it provides including the new blades.

Does What I Needed
Purchased to mulch leaves and it does a good job. We have a large yard full of oaks. I'll probably bag but could just leave the the mulch on the lawn. Installation was easy understanding that the deck has to be removed.

I sharpened the blades primarily to take the coating off. I wish there was an easier way to remove the kit (like some other machines that have a "plug") for quick easy change to side discharge or installation of a bagger. All in all, I'm satisfied with the kit.
Pros: Durable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Difficult To Installuninstall

Don't Expect To Change To Discharge Easily
I installed the mulching kit and it took 2 people to install some of the knobs on the threads that go thru the deck. I was able to install without removing the deck by using a lawn tractor jack.

The negative is that you will not be able to quickly go form mulching to discharge and back without lifting the tractor or removing the deck which greatly limits the mowing capability.

Most other mowers have a removable plug in the discharge which can be switched easily, this does not. I did... more

Dissapointed
Purchased based upon other reviews. However, other reviewers must not be as particular about their lawns as I am. Having mowed my own lawn for over 50 years with mulching lawn mowers from multiple manufactures, this has to be the absolute worst performing "recycler" ever invented. Installed as directed.

First mow left a lot of uncut areas and as much or more rows of clippings as mower equipped without mulching kit as well as throwing clippings out of the cut out. Adjusted... more

Jack,
Sorry to hear about the kit. I would recommend to try Gator Blades which is a better blade than the one that comes in the kit, these blades are designed to give a nice cut when mulching and we have received many good reviews on them.

Great Product!
I am more than impressed with the recycling kit for the Toro mowers. I am happy that MowersDirect had a cheaper price than my local dealers, even with the shipping costs.

The only issue I had, which was easily fixable, was that the shipper caused minor damage to the kit. 2 of the baffle mounting bolts were poking out of the box upon delivery and I had to file the threads to get them to fit the provided nuts.

Nothing I haven't done before, so no big deal. Overall great product and great... more
