Donna for model number Mulching plug
Hello Donna and thank you for writing. According to our database, the model number you provided is just a portion of a model number with multiple possible variations. To ensure that we recommend parts that will work for your model, please check your information again; you will need to provide us with the full model and serial numbers located on the sticker on the unit itself. Also, the year is important. Once we have that information, we would be happy to find the part you need.
How can the system pick this part as OEM for my model number when, in the lists of applicable models of ALL the brands, my model number is not listed? The opening of my deck is 10" x 5.5". It is a three sided opening as there is no bottom.

Curtis hilton for model number 13a277ks066
Hi Curtis, I am not seeing this as compatible with your model, the compatible mulch kit is part 19A70041OEM. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!
Besides mulching blades, are there any other parts needed to convert my Yard Machine to mulching? I have seen 'kits' that have what look like flanges to bolt onto the deck. For air flow?
Bill for model number 13AF660G352
Hello Bill, thank you for your question. There are a few parts you will need to purchase to convert the unit to mulching besides the blades. The mulching plug, Part Number: 731-2363, is secured to the side of the mower deck to keep the grass under the deck for mulching. This makes the grass clippings smaller to be better as mulch since the smaller clippings will decompose quicker releasing their nutrients into the soil. The bolt that secures the plug is Part Number: 710-0134, push nut is Part Number: 726-0233, and the wing nut is Part Number: 712-3087. There is one bolt, push nut, and wing nut used for mounting this plug. I hope this helps!

Lift the front of the tractor and put jacks underneath it. Remove the blade nuts from the spindle. Then remove the dull blades. Place the new blades on the spindles and tighten the blade nuts. Then I removed the old spark plug, then gapped the new one at 0.030 then installed it. I then used a nut and bolt to attach the mulch plug to the tractor.

    this part was easy to install it fit perfect it took a little longer to arrive than I thought it works great
    Guest - May 2, 2019 Verified Purchase
    Not a good fit
    The part looked to be correct However the fit was extremely tight and required a bit of sanding and a hammer to seat the plug. Once installed it worked it did the job. No more grass catching or trails if cut grass. Delivery was prompt. I would not hesitate using this supplier again.
