bought a mulch kit for 17/48 tthp. it says to remove flow control baffles before installing mulch baffles. okay so do i cut welds on existing baffles and drill holes in deck to match mulch baffles? carry a portable welder with me to weld baffles back in when i need them. No problem call dealer they will know , maybe i got wrong kit. Dealer says what kit no. do you need i say whatever kit fits 17/48/tt. they say what kit no. do you need, i say you are selling the kits you tell me. They tell me we are so sorry we dont even know dont know how to find out. hang on it gets better. I ask for exmarks 800 no. oh they say, we cant give that out its not meant for residents. No problem go to my exmark operater manual i will find # there. hey dealer was right they dont give theyre # out . Question,maybe exmark isnt a U.S. company maybe based out of lower slabovia or something. Wow im glad i never had to order any parts or anything complicated. Oh well I dont really have to have a mulch kit anyway. So this is the # one mower that everybody buys.
