    I installed a mulch kit on my new 60" super z 2 weeks ago. I have a lot of blow out coming from the left side. It is so bad that it is blowing quite a bit of grass into the flower beds. I am using the blades that came with the mower. It cuts great, but just a lot grass coming out from the left side of the mower. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.:confused:

    You need to install the Gators, It will take care of your problem.
    The Hustler part # is 782557 they list for $14.30

    Hope this helps

    is there a web site where i can buy these blades online? my dealer is about 50 miles away and he will deliver them to me, but it seems like a waste of his time to deliver me 3 blades. thanks.

    Got my gators installed today. the blow out is a llitle less, but it still blows a lot grass into the flower beds, not to mention, all over me. i cut 3 acres today, and there must have been 3 inches of grass on top of the deck and my legs were covered with grass and dirt. does anyone have the same problem? any other suggestions to fix this? is there more than one way to install the mulch kit? could i have installed it wrong?

    There is only 1 way to install that mulch kit, it should be fine.
    How much grass are you taking off at the hieght your cutting ??

    When i am mowing tall, thick and wet grass there is not much blow out at all. When I am mowing thinner grass and it is not that tall it almost seems like I have a front discharge mower. I mow most of my properties at 3" - 3.5". I also do a few parks at 2.5". It does not matter what height I mow at. It seems that when I cut tall grass and the deck gets full underneath, there is no blow out. Thanks.

    Did the dealer sell you the Hustler blades ?
    I mean did they have our part # stamped in them ??
    We have Gator make our Gator blades and they are different from most other gators.
