    Hey Envy, no I dont have a pic. My computer tore up last month and had to drag the old webtv back out till I get new pc. My mulching kit on the 717 works the best of any I have ever used. Dont have one for my 737, I did have a welder friend to make me a plate today to fit over the discharge chute though. On the 717 there are 2 shields (I think they are called baffles?) that bolt under the deck and a plate that goes over chute. It is NOT a 5 minute job to put on or remove though.

    Here is a pic of the components from an old style Mulch Kit.
    It is my understanding that they havent changed all that much!

    The top part is the baffle with the discharge plate
    Next are the deck skirts which prevent blowout
    Mulching Blades and a Hardware kit

    Hope this helps

    I don't have any pics of mine but the one jpmako pictured is not a 7iron mulch kit, looks to off a garden tractor?

    Sorry DLCS
    I don't have a 7 Iron deck so I don't know what that mulch kit looks like. this is the style that I have on my 48" WB.
    Is the one from the 7 Iron deck a lot different?
    How does it perform in wet grass?

    jpmako,

    Ah... thanks anyways for the picture! It is a picture, and of a JD mulch kit, and an interestingly designed one as well. I bet those 'lips' are really trick for controlling blow out/blow away during leaf season....
