FYI, The mulch kit is finally available for the 1500Z. I got one and it consists of baffles and a block plate. The deck will need to be removed and some holes drilled, but the installation doesn't look too bad. I wish the deck was already pre-drilled. Oh well. I'll be installing this weekend so I'll let you know how it goes. I also ordered and received the hitch kit. Installation is simple. Other accessories that I know are available are a light kit and baggers. The light kit is available now but no ETA on that bagger when I had called. I don't need a bagger but may order the light kit in the future. Just thought I'd pass along the info.
