    I have the toro 44" z-master also. When I bought it I also bought a mulching kit that consisted of two large interlocking baffles that are hollow plastic. Toro also makes a fabricated metal mulch kit for the 44" sfs deck which I saw later in the catalog, it was not offered to me when I bought mine. If you have the metal one, I'd like to hear how well it works. I've always had trouble with the plastic mulch kit in wet or weedy conditions. the two baffles on the front lip of the deck might be the anti-blow-out things. (mine are metal, but also 2-piece) the owners manual says to remove them when using a mulch kit. They are for side discharge mode only.
