    This is how it looks when its done...It waas a good kit...all the holes lined up ...and it took me about 45 mins to install it
    I like the way it dosent blow all the clippings in the beds ...also no more dust flying in my face.
    It will take some time to get use to it ...I cant fly through the tall stuff like i could with the side discharge... or it leaves strips:nono: I don,t like that part.
    I may also resharpen the blades ...they wernt to sharp from Kubota.

    I think you should not sharp the blades. They look soft because the black paint is thick. Use it for 5 minutes and you'll see the razor blade hidden by the paint.:)

    Most of my stuff is by the hour rate...But yes it may slow me down a bit...I,m hoping bu sharpening the blades that will help.
    But it sure cuts the grass up in to very small pieces.
