I got a set of gator blades for my mower but I don't think that made that great of an improvement since the clippings just shoot out the side and leave trail parallel to me when mowing. I have looked for a plug but haven't found one. The closest model that I have found my mower to be is 14AI828H205(don't know since the model # tag in missing from under the seat). It's a 01 Ranch King. :thanku:

Since most mulch plugs I've seen for newer mowers are a simple piece of plastic, it sure would seem like you could fabricate one out of sheet metal. Just follow the contour of the inside of the deck and block the discharge chute. Use round headed bolts to hold it in place and verify blade clearance.

Some guys even block the discharge chute with a piece of hardware cloth over the end.

I don't think your mower is an 840 series if it is an 01. I believe my 2000 model was the last year they were made.

In any event, here is a manual for the 840 and 820 series, which contains a part number for the mulch plug for a 46 inch deck. OEM-190-118

M&D has it, but sit down before you click this link.

If you get the part numbers then a cub cadet dealer can get it for you.

Thanks! I was able to find the plug part number with your help! It's part number 731-1636 in case anyone is wondering.

Can anyone tell me the easiest way to find my model and serial # of my tractor?(remember, there is no label under my seat) Thanks!
