Mulch plugs are typically a cover that is affixed to the discharge chute of a mower deck. As blades spin, they cut grass, and lift them up into the swirling air above the cut grass and below the mower deck. The clippings are suspended until they are blown out of the chute.

Mulching, is the process where grass clippings aren't simply discharged out of the chute after cutting; rather they are kept under the mower deck and spin around suspended in the blades resulting in repeatedly being cut. Instead of long clippings exiting the chute, much smaller clipping result from multiple cuttings and settle back on to the lawn under the deck. The smaller clipping allows them to decompose much quicker and return nutrients to the lawn.

Long clippings take longer to decompose and can turn into thatch on top of soil between blades of grass - effectively smothering the lawn. Long clippings can sit on top of cut grass and choke off sunlight, etc. and cause dead spots. Thatch can occur with mulching too - but takes longer to accumulate.

How do I find a replacement electric motor for my Worx WG718 lawn mower?


WORX Lawnmowers seem to be incredibly unreliable, at least according to their own customer reviews. I found that Sears (one of their retailers) does carry some replacement parts, including motors, but often the models are updated, and beyond their 2 or 3 year warranty, the motors are discontinued. You may have to look for another WORX mower being sold for parts to acquire a working motor. Alternatively, keep checking EBay for a used motor. When operational, the WORX mowers are great, but with only a 2 to 3 year life expectancy, they are not the bargain they appear to be at first. Many customer reviews give high marks for the first year. Fewer for the second year, and by the third year, you'll be hard pressed to find a positive review of their mower products. I'm a WG780 owner: 2 years and my mower was shot too. WORX will not offer replacement motors, and will not offer repair service beyond their 2 or 3 year warranty (Two year warranty for machines sold prior to 2013; three year warranty after 2013) . Their operators will tell you that you'll need a new mower. Service during the warranty / Nothing afterwards.

To mulch my grass clippings, do I have to use the side discharge or can I simply remove the bag and insert the rear plug?


Insert the rear plug if mulching is desired. The key to mulching is to mow the lawn frequently.You want to keep the mower deck height high enough to cut the grass and allow the mulching blades to work, but just low enough to actually cut the grass in a smooth uniform height. To low of a cut setting will clog the mower and create a mess. 2 times a week is a good frequency to start with.

Short battery charge


The B & D MM575 mower is not battery operated nor is it cordless. CMM1200 CMM1936 CMM1836 are the currently available cordless mowers. You can buy a battery from B &D, they list it here:

Can a mulching blade work in a non-mulching mower?


True Mulching mowers have a specific deck design to them, but I would say yes to your question.It's been quite a few years, but I have done this little conversion myself - replace regular blade with a mulching blade. Just make sure the mulch blade does fit your mower. Also, use something substantial in terms of strength to close the discharge opening. There can be a good deal of force placed at the opening from flying debris. You'll also want to make the cover removable, so you can mow damp grass without the cover.
