    a while back i herd on here the mulch kit was not measured correctly and when you engage the blades would bog or scrape the deck.so the mulch kit does a good job got any pics how much did you pay.

    I just put a mulch kit on my turf tiger last fall 61" advantage deck. Had ome promblem with the blades rubing modified it alittle and seems to work pretty desent. Though I think I'm going to try and build a adjustable discharge gaurd so It can be operated open or closed. Haven't mowed to much grass withit yet.

    I wonder where BHB is to reply on this one. He made himself a OCDC for his 52inch Scag WB, with a cable on it up to the handle bars, so when you get close to a landscape bed you close it up acting like a mulch kit, then open it up in the wide open areas to throw the grass out. Its pretty nifty, they do make the OCDC for the Turf Tigers, not certain what company does but do some searching on here there are pics of these OCDC.

    I am thinking of buying a mulching kit for my 52" hydro in a couple weeks. I already have something similar to an OCDC but it like has a metal rod attached to it so you have to park the mower and then go on the side and put it on and then resume mowing. It works well though around beds.
