    I am getting ready to purchase the mulch kit for the 60" XR7. What I need to know is that when I install it and the blow out kit will I need to remove the air lift kit and/or the triangular baffles?

    Does this kit come with the wavy blades or do they have to be purchased separately? And if so does anyone know the price?

    Thanks.

    You will need to remove the air lift kit and the triangular baffles.
    The wavy mulching blades are what we suggest and they must be purchased separately.
    I don't have parts pricing, check with your dealer for your best price.

    Actually, the lift kit itself can stay. The triangle fillers and the front baffle, however, need to be taken off.

    If you are installing the blowout kit, you will need to remove the lift kit. But, I reinstalled my mulch kit today; and the mulch/lift kit combo worked very well for me. I also used gator blades from an exmark and was very pleased with them.
