    we just bought a brand new Exmark Metro 36" and we haven't decided if we are going to buy the mulch kit. We have rather small lawns and a couple large ones. I think the mulch kit would be more convenient.
    How hard is it to install the mulch kit? What tools are required for the job? How long would it take to convert from mulching to bagging or to side discharge?

    I am guessing a first time installer of a much kit on 36" would be 20min. After a person has done it few times he should be between 5-10mins.

    The tools you need are pair of 1/2", 9/16", 15/16 and jackstands. This is pretty easy job to do.

    The only thing that I hear that is bad is if the yards have been heavily fertilized. Some of the fasteners used can get into bad shape. A person at some point and time will what to get extra set.

    Thanks, Fred.
