a new one is about $50-$60. I haven't been that impressed with my advantage and the mulching plate, but I may be missing another attatchment on the deck that goes with the plate. Or I just don't know what Im doing when I have it on.lol

I purchased the mulch plate with my new Scag SW 36 Advantage.
Only two bolts to secure it and it works great!

It's best to contact a Scag dealer for the accurate part #.

if everything goes smoothly I could probably put the plate on or off in 5-10min max.

Ok, so i bought a nice used 48 tiger cub with 19 kawi on it. It has the advantage deck on it. Question is:

My other mower is an old lazer z hp 48 with 18 kohler on it. Mulch kit is installed. Mows beautifully, but doesnt quite have the power to just blow through the taller stuff. I either have to slow down a ton, or mow high, then go back at the normal setting to get it done..so double cut.

How does the scag mow with just the mulch plate? Does it put excess wear on one side of the deck with only the discharge plate on? Does it tend to leave rows of grass from it all trying to exit then getting blocked? It came with a new set of gator style blades and it mows nicely, but would really like to chop up the leaves and stuff the first pass. So mulch plate or whole mulch kit, or keep it as is and just run over em a few times? I think the 19 kawi has more uummmppphhhh to it also, so i think it would mulch the thick stuff well.

Ok, more than one question, but input/experience is greatly appreciated.

I have a 2009 Scag SW 36 Advantage with 16hp Kawi motor and added the mulch plate and Gator blades, (no mulch kit) and it cut very nice!!!
There is no wear on one side of the deck and no grass trail.... only one pass needed. As for leaves, I will remove the plate and put on the metal catcher.
