I'm looking for a mulch plug for my Craftsman 917.274822 but am not having very good luck. I emailed Sears and asked them about it and they gave me a part number..... that doesn't exist, at least not on their own web site. Apparently my 6 year old mower is "too old". EVERYTHING I have found researching on line is the correct mulch plug WITH blades!! I just need the plug and am becoming frustrated. I have tried Ebay and Craigslist with no luck. I'm not sure what, if any, other brands are compatible so I can't even go that route. Very frustrating.....

Dunno..... I can't view it for some reason. The info I got from Sears was for a model number that can't be looked up on the website, I'm assuming for the same reason I couldn't look my mower up (too old).

On my old Jacobsen rider I used hardware cloth. For a deck never designed to mulch it worked fairly well for leaves. ;)

Well, I got and tried the mulch plug Saturday..... works GREAT except for the dust kicked up by it. What a mess!!! The plug isn't "the" one for my mower but it works. I "think" the dust kicked up is actually coming from the front of the mower deck..... my yard has some really bad dry dirt spots and dust is usually a problem when I mow, usually it gets shot out the side though and doesn't affect me. Oh well, the mulch plug did what it was designed to do and did it well.

I've given up mowing for over two weeks now with it so dry and only weeds growing. Between the dirt, dry leaves and grass my allergies drive me nuts for a couple days after. :rolleyes:
