Raven MPV-7100 Mulch Kit Quick Update!

I just wanted to show you a picture of what my yard looks like after using the mulch kit on the Raven MPV-7100. Remember, Consumer Reports listed this mower as one of the lowest for side discharge, mulching and bagging (take a look for yourself)

I am cutting at 3 1/2 inches and I cut about 4 inches off.  The lawn is a bluegrass/fescue mix with a lot of white clover in the fore ground. As you can see the Raven did just fine mulching. If you look very closely you can see just a little grass clippings left on the lawn. By the next day that had worked down into the grass.

The mulch kit with the metal cover is now available at Lowes.

If you would like to see the mulch kit installed please go to this article: Raven Mulch Kit

Hi Paul – a unrelated question about the Raven MPV – Hove you found a good cover which fits the unit? or could you recommend a size to look for? – FYI – I have the bagger unit on mine, which makes it much longer than usual… but will remove that when it goes into storage.

I’m on my second mulching kit at the moment are there any options for more affordable mulching blades or do I need to buy the kit every time? Currently using my machine to mow about 2.5 acres and find that blades last average 6 months.

Atlanta, GA: I like your site and it is a wealth of information, but what I see at http://slideplayer.com/slide/3935985 gives me some concern. The presentation there says that Raven has partnered with TodaysMower and the reviews on the site seem to be very favorable to the Raven MPV. I like the idea of the MPV, but I have no sense of Rato’s commitment to the US market and service. They have been unresponsive to emails with questions about variants of the rear hitch and component replacement costs (48V battery etc).

Paul,

Thanks for the review and I agree with your CU assesment. What kind of tree is that by the mower?

Hi Paul,
You are to be commended for your great site and all your hard work on it.
Quick question, when you state that Sears will come to you for warranty work, does that mean that Sears sends a tech to your home for repairs during the standard warranty period or just for those with the optional Protection Plan?
Thanks, Larry

Paul and All Raven Owners

Thank you all for your comments, reviews, and input on the Raven 7100 mower/generator. After a year of watching and listening, we pulled the trigger and ordered one yesterday from Lowes. TodaysMower web site has been most helpful and informative in our decision. I look forward to joining users and sharing input and ideas regarding the Raven.

Bruce and Robbin, Western Oregon

I just purchased a lawn tractor from Sears, I believe it to be the craftsman 2400 19 horsepower 46 inch deck tight turn, 6 inch turning radius, I’m not finding any reviews or pictures on this unit. the item number is # 174 this unit has throttle control on right side fender and you must hold down to go full speed no right side foot pedal. I hope you can clear up some confusion for me I paid approximately 1,500 its being delivered next Thursday I’m seeing the 22 horsepower for almost the same price should I make a change

Hi Paul,
Should it be at all concerning that the Raven does not have a oil filter?
