Description

John Deere 30-inch Tri-Cycler Mulching Kit

The Tricycler system gets its name from the ability of a John Deere mower to bag, side-discharge, or mulch to meet the three phases of lawn care that are associated with the changing seasons (spring, summer or fall).
 
The Tricycler mulching attachment allows converting the mower so it can be used to perform the mulching function (grass or leaves) of this system.
 
The attachment consists of a special mulching blade, a deflector ramp to direct the clippings into the blade for re-cutting, and a discharge closure plate with adjustable baffle.
 
Operating tips
 
Mulching:
  • Adjust baffle to the proper opening;.
  • The adjustable baffle can be moved to one of five positions to match conditions using the convenient wing nuts.
    • When mulching grass, the operator should start with the baffle set in the highest position (greatest opening).
    • In drier conditions or when mulching leaves, the baffles can be moved down to reduce the amount of material that is discharged.

Note:The holes in the adjustable baffle are intended for leaf mulching. When mulching dry leaves, the holes will allow some air and leaf particles to escape, reducing blow-out in other areas of the mower. However, when mulching grass, these holes can be expected to plug.

  • Mow when the grass is dry.
  • Observe the 1/3 rule.
    • No more than 1/3 of the grass blade should be cut off at one time; this allows more efficient mulching and will promote the continued good health of the grass. If the desired cut height can't be achieved by cutting off 1/3, or there is clumping of the clippings, it may be required to cut higher. Wait a day then lower the mower and make a second pass.
  • Mow at proper intervals - approximately every 4 to 5 days.
  • Always mow with a sharp blade.

Bagging:

  • Remove Tricycler attachment and install the appropriate medium or high lift blade.

Side-discharging:

  • Deflector ramp and discharge cover must be removed.
  • Special mulching blade may be used if satisfactory results are achieved. If not, remove and replace with standard blade.

Compatibility information

The Tricycler mulching attachment is compatible with riding equipment having a seat safety switch (in good operating condition) to prevent an operator from adjusting the baffle while the mower is running.

Tri-cycler Mulching Kit - BM17920
When buying new parts for an old and well used machine rarely does everything fit without some serious "convincing." This kit is standard John Deere quality, fit perfectly and works as advertised. The part was ordered and arrived in a very timely manner. I will definitely do business with the GreeenPartStore. Thank you.

Easy to install and eliminated all the excessive long clippings to keep the yard looking neat. Really happy with the results.

Easy to Install
I found it not necesary to remove the mower deck on my RX75. It was easy enough to drill the required hole from underneath.

Easy to install
Very easy to install. The GX85 already had all necessary holes, so I didn,t have to remove the deck. It took 15 minutes to install all works really well.

Works great! Didn't realize it required drilling a mounting hole through the mower deck, but instructions were clear and installation went better than I thought it would. Very glad I purchased.

30-inch Tri-Cycler Mulching Kit - BM17920
Great mulching kit. Fairly simple to install, even without removing the deck (elevate the front of the mower to get enough clearance for the drill). Very substantial metal kit, not the lightweight plastic found on others. Took care of lots of leaves this fall very easily. It sure beats raking!

This kit bolted right onto the deck of my John Deere GX75 without any problems. The Tri-Cycler kit works great. I would highly recommend this product.
