    I just purchased and installed mulch kit part#106856 .The dealer told me that the oem fusion blades I have on now would work fine.Installed according to instruction that came with kit. Now I have a lot of blow out from under mower.Reading other post it appears there is some problems with the xr7 deck . Why am I having this problem with blow out,what are the best blades to use for the mulch kit and what are the issues with the deck and how do I get it resolved.I read that the deck issue would be fixed under warranty.

    First of all you need to run mulching blades or Gator blades with a mulch kit, that is one cause for blow out.
    Secondly we offer a blow out kit for these types of conditions, they are for use with mulch kits when needed and catchers.
    The XR-7 issues you have read about are in northern regions and they have been resolved.
    I would get the right blades on there and then see what you experience, if needed you can always put the blow out kit on there.
