Description

John Deere Tri-Cycler Mulch Kit for 60-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.
 
Kit includes:
  • Deflector ramps that are used to redirect the clippings into the blades for re-cutting
  • Three specially shaped mulch blades with longer cutting edges that are designed to cut grass into fine clippings and direct them into the turf 
     

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 baffle can be moved down to reduce the amount of material that is discharged.
    • 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.
  • 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 sharp blades.
  • When using the mulch kit, clippings are held in suspension under the mower until the power take-off (PTO) is shut off or the engine speed is reduced to slow the mower blades.
  • When ready to stop mulching, slowing the engine speed while continuing to drive over the cut area will allow the suspended clippings to fall and disperse more evenly over the lawn.
Tips for special situations:
  • If mulching performance is not satisfactory, raising the mower to increase cut height, even a little bit, will often make a big difference.
  • If excessive clippings appear at the left edge of the mower, the left rear mower lip should be removed (if the mower is so equipped). This will promote better distribution of clippings.
Side-discharging and using Power Flow™ material collection system (MCS):
  • The mulch cover must be removed.
  • Special mulching blades may be used if satisfactory results are achieved. If not, remove and replace with standard blades.

Bagging:

  • Remove the mulching attachment and install the appropriate medium or high lift blades.
