Hi, I just purchased this mower an was disappointed it didn't have an automatic mulching feature built-in. My bad for not looking into this ahead of time but I just assumed it had this feature....

Anyways, I tried purchasing the mulching cover but it obviously doesn't help with cut the grass up smaller/finer.

I'm looking to buy the best mulching blades on the market for this mover. Therefore, 2 questions:

1) Am I restricted to only using "mulching blades" that John Deere provides?
2) If not, can you provide recommendations to what blades I could replace the factory blades with that will chop the grass clippings up as fine as possible?

Thanks for your help!

Dan

Thanks Keith. Any recommendation to ensuring I order the correct size? I tried searching by comparison to the JD blade (AM141035) but to no avail. Thanks.
According to JD Parts the AM141035 is the Mower Blade Kit (Blades, Nuts, and Washers).
I think the stock blade is a GX21784 to be used with the AM141035 kit.
An optional blade GX21785 is to be used with the AM141036 kit.
