    Is there a way that you can cover up the discharge shoot so that you will have a mulching deck ?

    Yes its called a mulch kit. You could just use a block off plate but the results won't be as good.

    A mulch plate will do that but don't expect it to mulch perfectly. A mulch kit usually includes baffles for under the deck to direct the airflow for good results.

    the only way to mulch is with a kit. but i think they are more trouble than worth, in spring while having to cut ridiculous grass that is, if one can cut regularly with no problems with rains and high humidity, then mulchng is great imo
