These two models are basically the same mower with one having just a little more horsepower, but I guess that only MTD Inc. could answer this question totally!

Question

How does a buyer select and purchase the mulching/bagging accessories for this mower, on this site?

No detected area on the webpage where the buyer can purchase any accessories for this mower model. I planned on buying the mulching/bagging equipment, but did not find the area for purchase selection. Please place a pulldown tab or radio button so that we can opt to make the accessories purchase with the mower model selected. Thanks!

There is a section in the back of the Operators' manual where it lists the parts that you can buy with this mower including mulching kits, bagger attachments and etc..

Value your opinion on site improvements.
Most attachments and parts are located under lawn mowers.
The twin bagger for this unit is Walmart.com model/part # 558957. If you enter 558957 in search should take you directly to the page.

I wouldn't recommend it because the deck can't handle the extra 2 inches without hitting against the deck.

It doesn't come as a mulcher, but you can buy the mulcher blades and a mulcher block that fits over the throwout chute which would turn it into a mulcher for an extra 75 dollars.

answer 2
It will mulch but you will need to order the Mulch kit 19A30006OEM which includes the needed deck plug and blade set. It can be ordered and shipped directly to your home at the Walmart Parts Assistance line at 1-888-232-6710.

Question

How detailed is the mannual with this product?

I'm buying a property with 4 foot high grass. So...I wonder how this mower will do. I also want to know about buying spare belts, filters and oil so as to stay ahead of the game...I didn't see anyone comment on the relative long-term realibility on the Murry product line.

I have a 40" I purchased in 2010. I really have enjoyed this product without any problems until this week. I changed the drive belt and checked it multiple time to ensure it is on correctly (it is). Now when I release the break/cluch peddle it stops running immediately. I ajusted the cluch and break according to owners manual but still can not find the problem. I would, however, buy another one.
I also bought a very large Brute tractor from Walmart in 2011. one day after the 2 year warrenty expired, so did the tractor--a pully flew off during mowing. Replaced it and then in three weeks the engin (B&T Intech) push rod broke. Got it repaired and now 5 months later it died again and has to go to the shop. Push rod and valve problems. Walmart did not have an owner's manual for this last one and would not assist in getting me one.
