John Deere 48A Mulch Control Kit 

The MulchControl attachment for the 48A Mower Deck makes mulching more practical for many mowing situations because it not only does an excellent job of mulching but it also allows the mower to be easily converted for times when it is more desirable to side discharge or collect the lawn material. Advantages of mulching grass clippings include:
  • A beautiful looking lawn
  • Grass clippings not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
  • Less fertilizer use
  • Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings

Excellent Cut
This mulch control kit was a perfect fit for the 48" deck on my Z355R. Installation was easy and the instructions were easy to follow. The instructions are for a variety of decks, so make sure you follow the one that applies to your machine. The mulch blades leave much finer clippings and have an excellent cut. I highly recommend this upgrade to the mower deck!

It works - better than I thought. I thought the instructions could have been clearer. After installation, you can feel a little more vibration due to the mulching process and possibly from the suspended metal baffles under the deck. You end up getting 2 large baffles, the door to switch modes with a spring handle to open/close, and 3 new blades.

This is a wonderful product. It has made my mower do just what I wanted it to do. Lawn looks great. Can't wait for more leaves to fall so I can really get another benefit.

First off, I was impressed with the fact that the Greenparts folks took the time to contact me to make absolutely sure I was ordering the correct part. (Thanks Cameron!). Second, the part is built solidly. No flimsy, cheaply made knock off here. It was relatively (the deck has to be taken down) easy to install with the appropriate tools and the directions were easy to follow. It works great and I can mulch or not when I choose to at the flip of a lever. I am very pleased with this purchase.

JD Mulch Control Kit
I installed this on the 48 inch deck of my X380. Install was fairly easy, requiring just a few adjustments toward the end to get it all snug. The most confusing part was the three extra bolts which are included and listed in the parts list, but do not appear anywhere in the instructions - even for special configurations (e.g. European models). Other reviews on the web indicate the same, so I don't think it was just me. Once installed the kit works great and still operates as smoothly as before, but with the added bonus of mulching. Highly recommended.

Outstanding Purchase
After last year's fiasco of having trail lines of cut grass & blown leaves on 1/2 acre of new home, this mulcher attachment has made my life so much easier. Being a widow at 62, having no assistance with yard work, and physical health declining, this gem has become one of the best investments I've made since the move. Works beautifully & highly recommend.

Works great for mulching lawn
I'm cutting bermudagrass which is pretty thick and haven't had any problems with cutting the lawn. The only issue I have noticed is in the real thick areas it can have a tendency to leave a small trail of grass down the right side of the mower. I assume that it just can't keep up with the amount of grass its trying to mulch or I'm simply just going too fast through those areas. The install took about 45 minutes and the instructions were mostly clear. I did have to swap the bolts around a little because I used a long one where a short one was needed. I have not noticed any issues with the quality of cut, it has been excellent. I have not even noticed I have to slow down, except for the above mentioned, where the grass is extra thick or I let it grow a little too long. But a quick second pass solved all those issues.

Great Addition exceeded expectations
The installation was easy and straightforward. However, the instructions leave a little to be desired with regards to calling out or identifying the correct bolts and their sizes. installation was smooth. I did not change the blades,, kept the new ones as spare, they did not seem to be different than what was on the machine. mulched leaves nicely and grass too. however I had to leave mower higher for leaves. overall well worth it, took me maybe 25 minutes to install.
