Description

John Deere 38-inch Tri-Cycler Mulching Kit

The Tri-cycler 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 Tri-cycler 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 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 Tri-cycler 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 Tri-cycler 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.
