    Question John Deere D110 Mulching Kit Question

    EDIT: TITLE OF THREAD IS WRONG, IT'S A D110, NOT E110.

    Hi.

    I just purchased my first riding lawnmower. This is what I got from Lowes: Item # 521666 / Model # BG20982 / John Deere D110 19-HP Hydrostatic 42-in Riding Lawn Mower

    Before I purchased I was shopping around and I noticed most mulching kits for other mowers came with a different blade. But the kit they recommend for this mower (42-in mulch kit (228462)) is only a plastic cover. Is that really all I need to make this a mulching mower? The same blade it came with is fine for mulching?

    Thanks for any info!

    Gordon

    I cannot find "228462" in the parts list. Are there any letters in front of that number? The D110 parts shows two mulching listing.

    As you can see the mulching kit comes with new blades.

    The standard blades are decribed as "3-in-1".

    The 2018 Lawn and Garden Accessories brochure lists BM21816 as the mulching kit for the 42-inch 100-series deck.

    Thanks! No letters in front of the number. I got that number from Lowes which points me to this: https://www.lowes.com/pd/John-Deere-...xoC7kgQAvD_BwE

    That "228462" number is a Lowe's item (aka "SKU") number. That number means nothing outside of Lowe's inventory system

    The Deere model number for your kit is the "Model # GY00115" listed on your same linked page.

    Common sense tells me the baffles and dedicated blades would probably work better but I have no experience with either on a D110.

    I have the baffles and dedicated mulching blades on my X500 w/48" deck and am extremely happy with the way it cuts and mulches.

    That doesn't sound right. My X350 mulch kit came with different blades -- the dealer gave the original blades back to me. Any blades will "work" but a mulching blade provides lift to allow time for more cuts, meaning smaller pieces. You should talk with a dealer, not a reseller.
