Toro mulching kit

Does anybody have a toro mulching kit on the new turbo force decks? I'm interested in how well the do and the results you get from cut quality. Also the biggest ??? is how long does it take you take take in on and off because I believe I will be in the positoin of having to do that on a regular occasion. I know that My mulching kit on my 60" deere was a living he** taking on and off. Thanks

I have it brand new never used. It was put on by shop when I purchased it. It rained the day I got it home. Pulled it of due to rain and never put it back on. Does not take that long to put on take off, but I would not do so on the fly. I was thinking about putting it back on late summer this year and testing it. But I would not use if I had to change out regularly. Set up to do so you could do it in around 20 min maybe less once used to it I think it took about 30 min to take off, but we spent some time just checking things out.

I had 52 Toro Z with the turbo force deck and mulch kit...had a 19hp kawasaki.

It cut great, left the yard looking bagged. Its not something you want to take on and off though. For me, it was a 20 to 30 minute deal...I just left mine on yr round.

Only negative, when its a wet year and you are cutting thick wet overgrown need plenty of horsepower to run the mulch kit and you have to clean out the under side of the deck almost daily.
