John Deere Mulch Kit 46-inch Mower Deck
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 special mulching blades, a deflector ramp to direct the clippings into the blades for re-cutting, and a discharge closure plate with adjustable baffle.
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 blowout in other areas of the mower. However, when mulching grass, these holes can be expected to plug.
Deflector ramp and discharge cover must be removed.
Special mulching blades may be used if satisfactory results are achieved. If not, remove and replace with standard blades.
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.
