    The MulchControl attachment makes mulching more practical for many mowing situations because it not only does an excellent job of mulching but it also allows the mower to be easily converted for times when it is more desirable to side discharge or collect the lawn material. Advantages of mulching grass clippings include:

    • A beautiful looking lawn
    • Grass clippings not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
    • Less fertilizer use
    • Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings

    MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:

    • The MulchControl attachment includes baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
      • The left mower blade area is completely enclosed and optimized for mulching, thus will mulch even when the mower is in the side-discharge mode.
      • Baffles around the center and right blades are optimized for mulching when the discharge baffle is closed.
    • MulchControl baffle closed

    • MulchControl handle

      MulchControl handle

    • The MulchControl handle is located on top of the mower deck and used to open and close the discharge baffle.
      • The operator is required to get off of the machine in order to engage or disengage mulch mode.
    • Changing from mulching to side discharge or vice versa takes only a few seconds.

    MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:

    • Usually mulch, but side-discharge when grass gets too long
    • Usually side discharge, but would like to be able to close the chute to control clippings
    • Always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
    • Bag clippings, but want to go farther before emptying bags

    MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. Now the operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side-discharge or bagging when needed.

  • While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl will still mulch about one third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial-mulch mode. This can be an advantage when side discharging or bagging, as it helps to reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times this could work as a disadvantage:

    • When cutting strong southern grasses, such as Zoysia and Bermuda
    • When cutting in wet, high-growth conditions, such as those found in the Pacific Northwest United States
    • When optimum bagging and lawn clean-up is desired
  • MulchControl is a field-installed attachment and compatible with the following tractors:

    The 54-in. (137-cm) High-Capacity Mower Deck is formed in a hydraulic press to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside for reduced material buildup:

    • Wider and higher discharge opening provides an even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.
    • Durable plastic deflector spreads grass clippings evenly across the lawn, is hinged, and can be raised to minimize the storage space required. 
    • 1-in. (2.5-cm) cold-forged spindles are heat-treated for strength and supported by ball bearings.
    • Front edge is raised above the blade plane to allow even cutting of tall grass.

    To remove the mower deck:

    • Disconnect the drive shaft.
    • Unlock the draft arm locks.
    • Back or drive the tractor onto and off the mower deck. 
      • On a 4WD tractor, the operator can simply back onto and off the deck.

    John Deere has designed a system that makes it easy to remove and reinstall the mower deck. A few steps need to be followed carefully to ensure success.
     
    The list below includes the major steps. Refer to the operator’s manual for a more detailed procedure. The tractor most likely has the mower already installed, so these steps begin with the removal procedure.

    • Grass clippings not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
    • Less fertilizer use
    • Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings

    MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:

    • The MulchControl attachment includes baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
    • The left mower blade area is completely enclosed and optimized for mulching, thus will mulch even when the mower is in the side-discharge mode.
    • Baffles around the center and right blades are optimized for mulching when the discharge baffle is closed.
    • The MulchControl handle is located on top of the mower deck and used to open and close the discharge baffle.
    • The operator is required to get off of the machine in order to engage or disengage mulch mode.
    • Changing from mulching to side discharge or vice versa takes only a few seconds.

    MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:

    • Usually mulch, but side discharge when grass gets too long
    • Usually side discharge, but would like to be able to close the chute to control clippings
    • Always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
    • Bag clippings, but want to go farther before emptying bags

    MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. Now the operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side-discharge or bagging when needed.

    MulchControl limitations

    While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl will still mulch about one third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial-mulch mode. This can be an advantage when side discharging or bagging, as it helps to reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times this could work as a disadvantage:

    • When cutting strong southern grasses, such as Zoysia and Bermuda
    • When cutting in wet, high-growth conditions, such as those found in the Pacific Northwest United States
    • When optimum bagging and lawn clean-up is desired

    MulchControl compatibility

    MulchControl is a field-installed attachment. Mulching blades are included:

    High capacity (HC) mower decks have ramps positioned on top of the deck for easy installation:

    • On a four-wheel drive (4WD) tractor, the operator can simply drive onto and over the deck.
    • On a two-wheel drive (2WD) tractor, the operator must back onto and over the deck.

    To remove the mower deck:

    • Disconnect the drive shaft.
    • Unlock the draft arm locks.
    • Back or drive the tractor onto and off the mower deck.
      • On a 4WD tractor, the operator can simply back onto and off the deck.
      • On a 2WD tractor, the operator can simply drive forward onto and off the deck.

    AutoConnect drive is an optional kit that will automatically connect or remove the drive from the mower deck to the tractor's mid power take-off (PTO) shaft.

     

    The AutoConnect drive does not need to be removed from the tractor when using front-powered equipment.

     

  • Drive-over mower quick reference (major steps)

    John Deere has designed a system that makes it easy to remove and reinstall the mower deck. A few steps need to be followed carefully to ensure success.
     
    The list below includes the major steps. Refer to the operator’s manual for a more detailed procedure. The tractor most likely has the mower already installed, so these steps begin with the removal procedure.
