Needs Some Work
Rubber straps are too short. Right front anti-scalp wheel mount is in the way of front strap and front strap mounting pin is too close to deck for proper engagement of front strap hook. One washer was missing from hardware package. Kit works with some minor adjustments. Some minor adjustments to kit would solve all issues. Save money and just duct tape hole shut.

Works As Advertised
Pros: Installed fairly easily, provides a nice looking cut, grass is mulched into fairly small pieces, the deck cover appears to be very solid, and I expect it will hold up well.

Cons:
1. If you intend to remove the chute to provide better handling of the tractor in tight spaces, be aware that the washer holding it on (at least on my LGT 2654) will need to be hammered/punched out (my technique), or maybe pressed out. Adds a bit more work to the installation, but gives greater flexibility... more

Works Very Well
I added the mulch kit to my 54" deck, and it works very well- no more rows of cut grass to rake after mowing.

It has been a great time saver for me.

Mulching Kit
The kit worked as it should, but still leaves clumps of grass and clogs because of the poor design of the deck.

Converting To Mulching Blades
Been bagging hauling and dumping cuttings and leaves for decades. Bought a house with nowhere to dump, tried the conversion to mulching kit for my Husqvarna. Easy to install, works great. All those wasted years collecting cuttings and leaves!

Not The Best Product.
Picture and instructions connecting the straps to the shield did not match where the holes were aligned. Had to align the straps on the shield to the pre-drilled holes but had difficulty stretching the straps to the holes listed in the directions. Couldn't find the hole to stretch the strap to connect to the mower deck. There was a hole on the deck but it is too far away for the strap to be stretched. Trying different locations on the mower deck to hook the strap and when I do the shield is not... more
Pros: Durable, Price
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Holes Didn't Match Up

Mulching Blades
Cut a few times with the original blades and they did a good job, but when I installed the mulching blades to take care of the leaves that I have a problem with it made a big difference. Very satisfied.

Everything Not Always The Same As Directions Say To Do
The mulching kit adapts to the mower deck but the tie down straps directions were confusing that may be attributed to modification of the instructions.

Picture and instructions connecting the straps to the shield did not match where the holes were aligned. Had to align the straps on the shield to the pre-drilled holes but had difficulty stretching the straps to the holes listed in the directions. Couldn't find the hole to stretch the strap to connect to connect to the mower deck. There was... more

Joe,
Please feel free to call the folks at Husqvarna Tech Support, toll free, at 800-487-595. They should be able to shed some light on getting the straps positioned properly.

Wrong Item
They sent wrong item on first delivery. Finally got someone to authorize Fed-Ex to pick back up. Went a couple of weeks and called back to check on delivery. Must have slipped through cracks. Finally received about 3-4 weeks after purchasing product on-line. They were easy to work with when you could get a hold of someone. I know accidents happen, but will remember in future purchases. Wasn't offered any sort of incentive for their mess up. Glad I wasn't in a hurry for product or... more

Works Great!
Purchased the mulching kit for my Husky 54" tractor. Easy to install, works like a charm. No more raking! Best money I've spent in a long time.

To Ways To Use The Mulching Blades
The mulching kit works just fine. I don't usually mulch the grass thoroughly ever time I cut it. I raise the door and it still does a good job. My mower was bad about slinging the clippings across the yard before, but the mulching blades stopped that.

Mower
Finally getting time to finish assembly, Do the adjustments, and fueling
I was able to try out my new Husqvarna mower. I mowed about an hour
yesterday. All is as expected, doing a great job, am well pleased with
the performance. I think it will save me some time, in taking care of my small
acreage. Would recommend this machine to anyone with a lot of mowing to do.

Purchasing Mulch Kit
Mowers Direct is an excellent company to deal with. I received my mulch kit items in four days in a factory-sealed carton with no problems.

I would not hesitate dealing with them in the future.
