Q: Todd, Just bought Toro Z4235 42" 20HP zero turn; is there a mulch kit out there for this mower? I noticed the two kits on your site do not fit the Zseries or the one that fits the Z series does not include the 2011 model.
by Dave Marino from Ohio on May 04, 2011

A: Dave - there is no 2011 model for the TimeCutter Z4235. You may have bought your mower this year brand new, but this is a 2010 or earlier model. Toro stopped manufacturing the Z4235 in September of 2010. All 2011 Toro TimeCutters are the new SS series. The mulch kit that fits the TimeCutter Z4235 zero turn mower is the Toro 79311.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will this mulch kit, Model 79018, with 3 blades, fit on a Toro Model SS4235, which only has two blades? The picture caption states this kit contains only 2 mulch blades. If so, how is it different from the other mulch kit Model 79311?
by Paul Sabec from Wyoming on April 25, 2011

A: This would be the mulch kit for your model mower as long as it is a SS4235. The 79311 would be the mulching kit for last year and later model TimeCutter mowers.

This kit would be different in the way it would fit on the deck. You would not be looking at drastic differences, but they are two different mulch kits.

Thanks,

Mowers Direct

Great Addition!
I have over an acre of lawn to maintain with many trees dropping huge leaves everywhere during the fall. For the last 2 years I have raked and bagged the leaves each fall season and I figured there had to be a better way! This was it! I got my mulching kit in faster than expected and it was very easy to install. After using it 3 times on my lawn I have not had to take a single leaf! Outstanding results in my opinion! Hope to never lift another rake again! Oh and I already notice a difference in... more

Not As Good As I Was Hoping
Had a professional install this mulching kit, just didn't seem to cut very well. Installed new blades and it really didn't help.

Skeptical..., But Now Very Happy!!!
I was skeptical at buying this looking at the other reviews concerning "clumping" but I bought it and am I glad I did. Putting it on was relatively easy, and I took off a good couple inches of grass and I had no clumping at all, and the lawn looks great!

Works....but:
This kit installs easily in an hour including removing and reinstalling the deck. The muncher kit works fine on dry or nearly dry grass. But it leaves clumps if the grass is much more than damp. And long grass will clump even if dry...as to be expected I believe.

Mulching dry grass is a very dusty operation on my little acre but I note my grass is not Kentucky Blue or any fine lawn grass. It's Zoysia and what we call here "wood grass" so perhaps that accounts for all the dust.

"A caution : some items although clearly indicated "free shipping" are not free. Example: the Toro mower bagger I tried to order clearly said "free shipping" on the product page but when I placed the item in my cart the shipping was $50.00. That is a new definition of "free" in my book."

Mulching Attachment
If you are considering this product buy it, it is the best investment. My leaves are starting to fall, it mulches them great, I mean fantastic. I bought my Zero Turn Toro mower 3 weeks ago. I put the mulching attachment on, WOW I have been pushing my yard. NO MORE just BUY IT.

Fast Shipping!
I have shopped around! You could not beat the price that Mowers Direct offers with shipping and all! They shipped it quickly and it arrived promptly. It is a beautiful mulcher that keeps all of those nasty grass clumps from building up on your lawn. No raking required!! Fertilizes at the same time!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

Not What I Hoped
I have had 2 top of the line Toro Super Recycler mulching mowers that really mulched well. When I finally splurged and got the Toro Timecutter 42" for my new yard I was influenced in my mower choice by my prior experience with the Toro mulching mowers and the fact that the Timecutter had this mulching accessory available. Overall I am quite disappointed at the results. It seems to work if going in a *straight line*, at medium to slow speed, on bone-dry grass, cutting off less than an... more

Mulching Kit
It took about 1 hour to install, works great. I read in other reports that the unit would discharge clumps of grass, but I have not had this problem at all.
