Leaf Mulching Kit?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, I've got a Broadmoor 717 and in the owners manual it shows a leaf mulcher kit.Anybody ever see one or now what it is?Is it just a plug or a whole different baffle system?Anyone have a picture of the set-up?I looked on the Simplicity Tec. site but the #'s for the kit brought up was the mower deck itself.The number for the kit should be 990450. I have heard of using gator blades but,I have not been able to find them for the 36in Broadmoor deck. I have a MTD with a mulch kit in it and it works great on the leaves,it just cuts them up so fine you don't even know there was leaves there.This is all the tractor is used for is the fall leaves and taking up space in the garage.If I could get a kit for the Simplicity I could sell that MTD and buy another Simplicity to restore. Thanks, mowerman1193

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
