Good morning, I have a 1026r with the mid-mount 54D auto-connect. Was looking for a mulch kit to install. Ive looked at some of them but and there is John Deere part BM20827 but the info shows for the 54D deck however doesnt list the 1026R as a tractor thats compatible. Any ideas if this works or if there is a different model that I will need to look at?? Thanks very much

I just ordered the 54” deck mulch kit BM20827 and installed for my 54D deck. Within the last 2 weeks. It works very well for me. The GreenPartStore shipped it very quickly. Easy install and I did remove the flap guard assembly from my deck. The mulch kit totally blocks the side blast outlet. It includes a rod assembly to hold the guard in full up position. I will save for later. Site shows kit is for 54C deck but it fits the 54”D perfectly.

OK thank you. So then it should fit all 54D auto connect decks?? I just want to make sure there isnt any issues with the older 54d decks.

This is the third season with the JD mulch kit for my 54” deck. It’s worked great. The only time I’ve had a few clumps is when grass was wet and I mowed anyway. It still worked great. My brother in-law who lives next door liked it so much that he got one too
