John Deere 54-inch Deck Mulch Kit

The mulching attachment for 54C/54D/54X Mowers controls the flow of grass clippings during the mulching process to provide excellent performance.
The mulch plug is made up of two halves. Most side-discharge and material collection jobs can be done by only removing the right half, leaving the left half in place.
Special mulching blades are included for optimum mulching performance.

Great Kit, all inclusive ( including the blades ) very easy to install after you remove the mower deck. I initially tried to cheat and attempted to install with the mower deck still installed, mistake! Mower deck actually comes off very easily, and the mulching kit installs without any drilling or prying. Grass 6” high will cut cleanly with no clumps. Light leaves will disappear into the grass.

Used on a John Deere 1023e with 54D mower deck. Works great. The picture is a little deceiving: the baffles are actually 2 separate pieces. The 2 curves are one piece, the end curve is the other. I didn't time myself doing the installation, but it was definitely less than an hour. Took me longer to clean and scrape the underside of the mower deck than to actually install the baffles and new blades. I also took the discharge chute cover off completely. The kit comes with a metal rod that props the chute up, but since i took it off i didn't attach that rod. The smaller 1 curve piece of baffle literally "plugs" the discharge of the deck.

I have 2 acre yard with multiple 50 and 75 year old Red Oaks that produce vast amouts of leaves. My John Deere Z445 does a good job cleaning up the yard. Some areas I may have to cover twice, but that's only when leaves are very heavy. I have tried the yard sweepers, leaf vacs, etc., but this is the easiest and simplest way for me. No extra motors to worry about or having to get off mower to unclog or dump.

Great results on first use. Easy to install if you remove the deck. I have used yard sweeps and rakes and this product is effortless to rid you of the fall leaves. I have several maple trees with large leaves. A few areas I had to raise the deck for the first pass and run a second pass with the deck at the desired height but far better than taking and hauling. I would recommend this to anyone that fights with leaves in the fall.

great mulch kit
Got this for my X500 with 54" deck. It fit in easily and it does a great job. No more shooting grass on my flower beds. The mulching blades that come with this kit seem to do a nice job chopping all the grass up. Easy install. My deck goes on and off easily so it didn't take much time to put this kit on.

Great company to purchase from. Quick delivery. The mulch kit was also easy to install on my 1023e. The hardest part was removing the original blades off my deck. Mulches very well and doesn't leave clumps of grass over the lawn.

Love this mulching kit, only took 45min to take off old blades and install this kit. I don't understand why I waited so long to get. Very happy!!!

The mulching kit was easy to install. I have mowed my yard twice since installation. The results are excellent.

I have been very unhappy with my JD GX 345 and this product has turned it all around. I was having problems with uneven cutting when bagging and debris everywhere when not bagging and this was my final option prior to a trade in. With this mulching kit (and my deck leveled) I can go at nearly twice the speed and there is nothing left behind and I mean literally nothing, the yard is evenly cut and looks as though it was bagged. I am completely satisfied and while it did take a while to clean the deck prior to the install, that was entirely my doing and once the kit was in I was off an mowing. Again I couldn't be happier with this product!
