Well, I have made a very cheap mulch plate. All I did was I found an old gutter guard laying around, so I drilled one hole and bolted to the turbo baffle on the scag tiger cub and then cut the excess length off. Now I realize this is not a true mulch plate because it has holes in it, but it might work during the summer time when the grass is short and dry. I will have to be careful mowing over small sticks because it could bend the gutter guard into the rotating blades. I personally don't know how well it will work but I thought it would be worth the try. So what do you guys think?
