24758x50A MULCHER KIT FOR 42” MODELS

HOW TO INSTALL THE MULCHER PLATE

The mulcher plate and the mulcher blades are optional attachments that can be added to the mower housing. The mulcher plate lets you mulch the grass for a clean, fine cut. Install the mulcher plate and the mulcher blades as follows.

WARNING: To prevent the engine from starting, disconnect the wire from the spark plug. Make sure the blade rotation control is in the DISENGAGE position.

1.Raise the deflector. Slide the front of the mulcher plate under the deflector bracket (Figure 1). If necessary, remove grass from flange.

2.Fasten the mulcher plate with two wingnuts and two carriage bolts.

To discharge the grass out the side, remove the mulcher plate. Attach the fasteners to the mulcher plate for future use.

HOW TO REMOVE AND INSTALL THE BLADES

WARNING: Before you remove the blade, disconnect the wire to the spark plug. The blade has sharp edges. When you hold the blade, use gloves or cloth material to protect your hands.

1.Use a piece of wood to keep the blades from rotating.

2.Remove the nuts that hold the blades (Figure 2).

3.Remove the standard blades.

4.Two mulcher blades are in the mulcher kit. Mount the mulcher blades and the blade adapters on the mandrels (Figure 2).

5.Mount each blade so that the hi–lift edges are up (toward the mower housing). If the blade is upside down, the blade will not cut correctly and can cause an accident.

6.Fasten the blades with the original washers and nuts. Make sure the outside rim of the Belleville washers are against the blades (Figure 3).

NOTE: Check the rotation of the blades. Make sure the blades do not hit the mower housing. If a blade hits, the mower housing is bent. Hit the mower housing with a hammer until the blade does not touch.

WARNING: Always keep the nut tight that holds the blade. A loose nut or blade can cause an accident.

7.Tighten the nuts that hold the blades to a torque of 30 foot pounds (41,5N–m).
