Search Product Q&A's Answered by Jake, the Lawn Mower Expert

Details say "no side discharge." Does that mean the bagger stays on at all times, where the grass that's cut just gets mulched underneath the mower as it rolls along. Is that correct? Thanks.
Dave 
from Texas 
July 22, 2013
Answer
Dave - the Husqvarna SRD17530 does not have a traditional "discharge" feature. This mower will either bag grass clippings or mulch grass clippings. It comes set-up to bag grass clippings. If you don't want to bag, there is an optional mulching plug that blocks the opening in the rear of the mower where the bagger attaches that will allow the mower to mulch grass clippings instead of bagging them. When mulching, the grass clippings would be cut into very fine pieces and would just fall on to your lawn from underneath the mower deck. The clippings are not "ejected" from under the deck like a traditional discharge function would work.

Do you have the mulching blade that goes with this 960 71 00 24 kit?
James Crawford 
from Washington 
July 12, 2013
Answer
James - Husqvarna does not offer a 30" mulching blade. The mower blade that comes standard on the SRD17530 riding mower is a 3-in-1 type blade, that will mulch or bag grass clippings with equal effectiveness.

I have this mower and under the bagger is a hitch but there is not enough clearance to connect anything to it. What is the purpose of this hitch?
Eric 
from Washington 
July 11, 2013
Answer
Eric - what you are looking at is not a hitch. This is a support bracket for the bagger assembly. The SRD17530 riding mower does not have towing capability.

Jose, This mower will mulch but mulch kit not included and one is not listed under accessories where would you get one and whats the cost. Thanks
David 
from Arkansas 
May 03, 2013
Answer
David - the Husqvarna SRD17530 will mulch, but it requires an optional mulch plug, which is not available as of yet from Husqvarna. As soon as the mulch plug is available, we'll carry it and list it under the "accessories" tab for this model.
