This kit has definitely improved the mulching performance of my D300 over the simple port plug. It takes a bit of work to install, but the easiest way is to remove the deck, insert the plug through the port and then fit the bolt through the deck hole and fasten with the nut before trying to fit the other end in place. A little grunting will do it. I can't imagine trying to install it with the deck in place..

Works Well with my Z235
It was a tight fit, requiring a rubber mallet to get it properly on the 42C mowing deck that comes with the Z235. The result is a nice clean cut with the mulch blades that come with this mulch kit. I do have some Gator Blades on order and will try those when they arrive. I hope to update this review once I have a chance to use them.

JD High Performance Mulch Kit for 42C Convertible Mower Deck
Piece of cake to install, and works as described. No raking my yard anymore just pull a yard sweeper behind the converted deck.

This kit works great!!! Don't hesitate to get it.
The only complaint I have is the the bolt was very difficult to line up with the hole in the deck, but other than that the mulch kit works awesome. I got this mulch kit after the growing season and I used it a few times and it works great. I've even used it on the leaves in my yard and it mulches them up very good. It's November and I can't wait for the rest of the leaves to fall off the trees so I can mulch them up.

Grass Bag? I need no stinking Grass Bag!
When I bought my mower, the dealer insisted I needed a grass catcher. Several hundred dollars later, I'm bagging grass, dumping heavy bags, having to stop and clear the clogged shute. Now, with the mulching kit, I mow one way and then the opposite way and my yard still doesn't look like a golf course but looks really good in half the time. Now I have much more time to stand around, lean on my Deere and discuss nothing really important.

No more grass clumping
I agree with other reviews that the bolt doesn't easily line up, but a few taps with a rubber mallet and all is well. So happy that the grass doesn't clump when cutting. For that alone the mulch kit is well worth the money.Extremely fast shipping!!

Mulch Kit
This kit was easy to install. I did have a little problem with the wing nut lining up with the hole on the deck but with a little adjustment it fit. My grass is looking good and don't have to rake. I recommend this kit to others.

Slightly Difficult Install - Great Results
I received this item and had my son install it. Everything was pretty easy except for one thing. The bolt the wingnut screws onto didn't quite line up with the hole on the deck. It just barely missed it. We had to drill the hole on the deck out just a hair bigger to get the bolt to line all the way up. The mowing results were great. The grass looks great. It seems to mow better. I would definitely recommend the product to other buyers.

Best purchase
I ordered this for my new JD riding mower. Could not beleive how easy it was to install. Still using original blades till they get dull, then switching to the mulcher blades. The service and quick delivery from Green Part store was awesome. Thank you.
