Blade does not feel sharp, is this the way is supposed to feel, i already removed the plastic
William alvarez for model number 490100m084 mulching blade asked on 2019-01-02
Hello William, thank you for your question. Mulching blades do not need to be razor sharp. They dull easier, and don't mulch as well if they are sharpened to much. You can try the blade as is, and if it doesn't cut to your standard sharpen it slightly. I hope this helps!
I am wanting to order MTD standard mulching blade 942-07414 which states it is 21inches, however I previously ordered a 037049942466 6 in 1 Universal Power Rake (21inch) that was to long to fit my 21 inch lawn mower. (width of the blade must be less 21 inches) Do you have one) Phone No. 248-943-0339

explain what the mulching plug is please?
hilliard for model number 12AVB2A3766 asked on 2021-10-19
Hi Hilliard, Thank you for your question. The mulching plug closes the discharge opening in the mowing deck, so that the grass clippings are kept in with the blades, so they may be cut into smaller and smaller pieces. Once this has been completed, they are then deposited onto the lawn as a fine mulch. We hope this helps! If you have any questions, please let us know.

    Easy As Can Be
    Could not find the part I need it anywhere at Lowe’s.. online an immediately found it on ereplacementparts.com. Their pictures of my OLD mower gave me assurance of what I needed to order . I ordered it took about a week got it delivered The the timeframe they set for me and the product was exactly what I needed. I would use them again. Absolutely no issues, and with this one transaction I would label as trustworthy.
