John Deere Mulch Kit For 48C Convertible Mower Deck

The mulching attachment for the 48C/48X Mower provides excellent performance.
  • Mulching attachment effectively controls clippings at all three blades for improved mulching and more even distribution of mulched clippings.
  • Plastic molded part will not rust.
  • The mulching attachment is held in place with wing nuts on top of the mower for easy installation.

Special mulching blades are included. These blades can also be used for side-discharge mowing with a Power Flow material collection system, though overall cut quality may decline slightly.

Installation is straightforward and fit to mower deck is good. Just know however that it can be installed incorrectly. I replaced an existing worn out attachment with this new one and installed it just like the original (the left outside blade was making contact with the mulching attachment). The metal support bracket that goes between the attachment and mower deck on this side was missing and I thought that this was the cause for the blade making contact with the attachment. My first installation of the new unit also made contact with this blade. The cause was positioning both of the molded-in locating tabs of the attachment to the inside of the metal baffle attached to the mower deck. These tabs must "straddle" this baffle...this allows everything to fit correctly.

Bought this Mulch Block and it works great! No clumping or rows of grass the lawn looks great! I would give this a 2 thumbs up and a 5 star rating, when i order this i didnt know that it already had blades that come with it, and i had order blades too, so dont order the blades.

I replaced an existing mulcher that was damaged. Installation was easy since all the holes were there. One detail missing from the instructions is to make sure you align the mulcher left-right so blades don't hit it. I had it all tightened down and when I went to install the blades I noticed the interference. With the wing nuts, it is easy to loosen and whack over a bit. The mulcher is really the best way to cut as I had been using it without and boy does grass go everywhere without it. My sweeper couldn't ever pick it all up. You almost don't even need to sweep or rake with the mulcher.

I bought this kit because I'm not much into raking leaves in the fall. It only took about 30 min. to install. I made one pass through the yard without looking back. When I got to the end of the yard and turned around it looked like I had bagged. Some of the heavier areas of leaves needed two passes but that's it. Never rake again. Buy one of these. Very satisfied.

Nice mulching kit
Rather simple installation. Clean deck very important. I chose to remove chute since I don't plan to return to standard mower. Only minor complaint, I've noticed it will miss tall wispy weeds occasionally. No big deal just a quick backup gets them or mow at a slower speed for those areas.

Fast delivery and easy to install. I spent more time cleaning the deck than installing. Wonderful product.

The installation of the mulch kit for the 48C mower deck was straight forward with 4 bolts. It took an hour including removing the deck, blades, cleaning housing completely, installation, and reassembly. I am very pleased with the way it works. No longer do I have stripes of cut grass from the discharge chute or grass in the flower beds or wood mulched areas. The kit also makes the mower a little quieter since the deck is fully enclosed. I have another John Deere mower with a rear bagger but would recommend the mulching kit over the bagger for size and simplicity.

Very pleased
Was easy to install, does an excellent mulching job. The price was a little below that as posted on John Deere's site.

Great product! Does a beautiful cut. Best mounted with the deck off the mower. Make sure you know how to remove and replace your deck.

Installation was easy using the supplied hardware and factory ready pre-drilled holes. Most of my effort went into cleaning and prepping the deck. I did just remove the chute rather than install the included prop. I used it the first time and I was very pleased. No windrows of grass and no clippings piled on top of the deck like there always was before I installed the mulching kit. I would highly recommend this product!

Easy install- works great
The toughest part about installing this mulch kit is hauling that heavy old mower deck around. Once I got the deck into place, standing on end, the mulch kit installed easily into the existing holes. I have used it several times and do not notice any grass clippings on the lawn when I am finished.
