Q: Can your 32" 20121 model mower be equipped with a grass cactcher and a mulcher?
by Michael from Massachusetts on April 23, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, this mower will accept these items. You would have to attach them yourself though. The mulch kit is model 79017 and the bagger is model number 79333.

Q: Todd,
My wife and i went mower shopping today.
We really like the Toro ss3200 zero turn mower. I asked if there was a mulching kit for the mower. The guy said there was, but that I really didn't need it. That I only needed a block off cover for the mower. He said that they are around $20. Is this true ? I noticed on this web site there is a mulching kit for $99.99 that has the block off cover and another plastic piece for the mower deck. Thanks, Jonathan A.

by Jonathan from Florida on March 29, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, a plug is required to block the discharge chute, but this kit has baffles included as well to direct the clippings back into the blade to be cut into smaller pieces. If you do not use baffles the clippings will not be directed back into the blades and bigger clumps of grass will be left in your yard.

Mulching Kit Works Great
Mulching kit works as advertised. Easy to install. Just follow simple instructions. Leaves real fine mulch behind. I'd recommend this as first accessory, even if you decide on a twin bagger later. Conversion from one to the other is straightforward and the mulching kit alone makes for a smaller machine during initial familiarization with the mower....just a thought.

Installation Of Mulching Kit 32" Zero Turn
Project instructions stated to remove deck from mower, not a hard project. I wasn't 100% thrilled with the direction (pictures and instruction different at times) however after a few attempts to install correctly I completed.

I thought the blade would have to be removed the mulching kit but the original blade stays and is never removed for this install. Their is a noticeable difference with the kit installed and glad I purchased. The transaction and delivery was excellent.

Great Item
I found that my ZT Toro mower needed a mulching kit. I began to shop online and found Mowers Direct. I called them by phone and the lady I spoke with was very professional and eager to assist me.

After telling her my model number she told me exactly what mulching kit I needed. I purchased the kit by phone and a couple of days later it arrived at my door. The kit was easy to install and now I love the way my lawn looks.

Thanks Mower Direct

Easy Installation
I ordered this on a Thursday and it was on my porch on Friday. Jose had sent me a link with the installation instructions which I read prior to ordering. I was not thrilled with the prospect of having to remove the mower deck so I stalled it with the deck on. I raised the deck to the highest level and there was plenty of rood to get my big arms and hands under the deck.

You have to search around some to blindly find some of the bolt holes but not a big deal. Getting the black rings on... more
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons: Expensive, Ring Install A Bit Confusing

Ease Of Installation
Not being mechanically inclined in the least, I was a bit apprehensive about placing this order but I was very tired of grass laying in the yard. The package arrived the next day and I immediately began reading the instructions first for removing the mower deck then the kit instructions.

I got at it on the next Saturday. All of the parts were there. The only hitch I had was lining the 4 edge pieces up on the bottom lip of the deck so that I would hit at least 2 holes with each piece. Not a... more

My Toro 3200 Zero Turn Purchase
I purchased this mower from Mowers Direct and it was delivered very quickly on a sturdy wooden crate. I paid extra for the lift gate option (Unless you have a forklift truck). It weighs about 580 lbs. crated. I purchased the hour meter and the recycle kit. It took me approximately three hours to un-crate it and set it up with the recycle kit. I removed the deck to install the recycle kit which was a little hard to do for the first time.

I downloaded the manuals to my computer a couple of... more

32" Mulching Kit
If there is ANY accessory you buy for the mower it MUST be this mulcher kit.

I am in shock actually at the performance and results of this simple kit, I just finished cutting my lawn and went to inspect and expecting clumps as usuall but all I saw was a great looking lawn.

The people that made this kit obviously did some R and D because it WORKS!!!

The only thing I regret is not taking before and after pics of my lawn so y'all could see what I'm talking about but I will say this, if... more

It Works!
Toro's mulching kit for their 32" zero turn mower is a relatively simple install. The instructions are clear and simple.

As expected, the single blade design of the 32" zero turn mower ensures that the mulching capability of this mower is similar to that of a walk behind mower. I've been using a Toro walk behind mulching mower for years because I'm satisfied that it does a better job than most of its competitors and can see no significant difference in my lawn's appearance after... more
