Is this a good price for a Exmark mulch kit.

    My dealer quoted me $120 for a mulch kit to be installed on my Exmark Lazer Z HP 52". Just curious if this is as good of a deal as he says. Sounds pretty good to me.

    Does that include mulch kit and installation or just installation?

    It includes the entire Exmark mulch kit and installation: Baffles, mulching blades, and the discharge plate.

    I JUST bought one yesterday for my 60" Lazer. It cost me $180, I installed it myself. Of course this morning at my first customers I laid on the ground and took the POS back off. It sucks big time in wet grass. So if it's wet or gonna be wet. I don't advise putting it on. You will be sorry. I spent an hour last night reading all the previous threads about it and opinions go both ways on it's performance. I certainly hope it works better in the dry and/or leaves!

    The mulch kit will be soley used for leaves in the fall. I am buying and picking it up now, but I am going to have my dealer install it for me come fall(are they that difficult to install??, I wouldn't think so.) I could never see myself mulching grass all season, it would just be too much hassel and I couldn't take advantage of the speed the Lazer Z has to offer.

    That is a good price. I paid $150 for mine installed. I have taken mine off an on several times. Very simple to do. Takes maybe 5 minutes of your time. ;)

    . :mad: I paid a lot more fore my mulch kit for a 48 turf tracer, and they didn`t install. It took long the first time I put it on, but after you see where :everything goes, it doesn`t take very long at all.
    For leaves the mulch kit works great, I will be getting one for my lazer this season.:D
