Looking for Mulch baffles for x485 54C deck

Does anyone know the part numbers for the much baffles? All I can seem to find is the kit that comes with the blades (BM20827). I already have gator blades and just want the baffles. Thanks !

Not sure where you're located but I found this. He might ship to you or his pictures show clearly the individual part numbers

Mulch Kit comes with baffles and blades. I have heard that Gator blades will hit the baffles and do damage to them. For what it's worth, the JD much blades do an exceptional job when teamed with the baffles.

Hmm, that's interesting if the Gators will interfere. I will look more into that before I buy separate baffles. Thanks for mentioning! The Gators are fairly new, so hoping to not have to get new blades.

I've successfully used Gators with the mulch kit on my 54" Edge deck on my 2012 x534. I did scratch the baffle once, when I had one blade mounted incorrectly. The clearance is tight, but it works.

Not sure where you're located, but I've also got the entire BM20827 kit available for sale. The mulch blades worked great, IMO.
