    I'm looking for a Mulching Kit for my Z Trak 727 (54" cut). What does the kit consist of? Is it just a chute blocker or does it come with new blades? Where can I find one? I've searched in Yahoo can't really find anything!

    It consist of 2 baffle plates (I think thats what they are called) that bolt under the deck and a chute blocker plate and a lot of bolts. The 727 should mulch as good as my 717 did and 737 does. I will say this thing is NOT fun to take on and off. If you do it yourself you will quickly see that:laugh: I have never saw one listed for sale anywhere other than the dealer.
