Modern styling with functional design enhances appearance and performance

Attractive styling Attractive styling
Hood air-intake louvers Hood air-intake louvers

Smooth, rounded contours present a modern, styled appearance:

  • Hood styling incorporates efficient full-length air-intake louvers on each side, rather than on the top.
    • Cooler engine operation
    • Lower operator station sound levels
  • Hot air is vented out the front grille, away from the operator.
  • The fully enclosed hood is made of molded-in-color material.
    • Reduces sound
    • Will not rust or dent
  • Distinctive grille and large, one-piece fender deck complete the styling package.
Two high-quality headlights give excellent visibility
Headlights Headlights

Headlights are standard equipment on all models:

  • Two 27-W bulbs provide excellent lighting for good visibility during evening operation.
  • A headlight position on the ignition switch makes it easy to operate the headlights.
  • The headlights are designed to provide an optimum lighting pattern for mowing and snow removal.

Snow removal is a strength of lawn tractors

X590 Tractor shown with optional front blade and weather enclosure X590 Tractor shown with optional front blade and weather enclosure
X590 Tractor shown with optional snow blower and weather enclosure X590 Tractor shown with optional snow blower and weather enclosure

An advantage of lawn tractors is their ability to use attachments for snow removal. Lawn tractor owners can add a John Deere snow blower or front blade to make quick work of moving snow whenever the need arises. Weather enclosure and tire-chain attachments add comfort and performance.

Equipment available for snow removal includes:

  • 44-in. (112-cm) Snow Blower for X570 Tractor
  • 47-in. (119-cm) Snow Blower for X580, X584, and X590 Tractors
  • 48-in. (122-cm) Front Blade
  • Tire chains or TerraGrip traction belts

MulchControl™ system provides superior mulching performance and rapid conversion

Lever-action MulchControl lever (shown on 48A mower deck) Lever-action MulchControl lever (shown on 48A mower deck)
Electric one-touch MulchControl switch Electric one-touch MulchControl switch

The optional MulchControl system 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:

  • Creates a beautiful looking lawn
  • Smaller grass clippings disappear into the lawn canopy
  • Reduces fertilizer needs
  • Grass clippings are not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
  • No need to dispose of bags of clippings
How MulchControl works
MulchControl baffle open (shown on Z300 48A mower deck) MulchControl baffle open (shown on Z300 48A mower deck)
MulchControl baffle closed (shown on Z300 48A mower deck) MulchControl baffle closed (shown on Z300 48A mower deck)

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

  • The MulchControl system includes an adjustable MulchControl baffle near the discharge chute and fixed baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
  • The MulchControl handle, or an electric one-touch actuator, is on top of the mower deck and is used to open and close the MulchControl baffle.
  • When the MulchControl baffle is open, most of the material flows freely out the discharge deflector or into a material collection system.
  • When the MulchControl baffle is closed, material stays within the deck and gets chopped into mulch and deposited in the turf.

MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:

  • For operators who usually mulch, but side discharge when grass gets too long
  • For operators who usually side discharge, but would like to close the chute to control clippings in some areas
  • For operators who always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
  • For operators who collect clippings but want to go farther before emptying the material collection system

MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings.

 

Electric one-touch MulchControl

Electric one-touch MulchControl systems shift the MulchControl baffle using an electric actuator that is operated by a dash-mounted switch.

Electric one-touch MulchControl switch	Electric one-touch MulchControl switch
Electric one-touch MulchControl actuator (shown on 54A mower deck) Electric one-touch MulchControl actuator (shown on 54A mower deck)

Operators can convert between modes without interrupting the mowing process, making it possible to change between modes:

  • When approaching driveways or flower beds where clippings would be undesirable
  • When a breeze blows clippings back onto the operator
  • For side discharge mowing only the areas of the property where grass is too thick for mulching
  • With 48A and 54A Mower Decks, for collecting only the areas of the property where grass is too tall or thick for mulching
MulchControl limitations

While in the side discharge mode, MulchControl still mulches 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 clean­up is desired
  • 42A Mower Deck requires a MulchControl baffle be removed to install the bagger chute

When bagging with MulchControl on a 48A or 54A mower deck, the MulchControl baffle can be opened or closed with the Power Flow™ blower installed. The Power Flow blower runs without material when the baffle is closed.

Rear baffle (A) must be removed for bagging with MulchControl with 42A mower decks Rear baffle (A) must be removed for bagging with MulchControl with 42A mower decks

When bagging with MulchControl on a 42A mower deck, the cut-and-throw rear bagger can be used with the MulchControl blades. However, the rear MulchControl baffle (A) needs to be removed to install the bagger chute. The baffle is held in place with two carriage bolts. To return to mulching, the chute needs to be removed and the baffle replaced.

MulchControl compatibility

Each MulchControl system is an optional field-installed attachment and includes everything needed: baffles, mulch blades, a handle (lever action attachments) or an actuator, wiring, and switches (electric one-touch attachments).

Exact Adjust ports and onboard deck-leveling tools make precise deck adjustments easy
Deck-leveling gauge and hex adjusting tool stored under tractor seat Deck-leveling gauge and hex adjusting tool stored under tractor seat
Exact Adjust access holes Exact Adjust access holes

A mower deck must be level side-to-side and properly adjusted front-to-rear to give the best cutting performance. A removable onboard deck-leveling gauge and a hex-key tool are provided to make adjustment easy. They are securely stored under the tractor seat.

Exact Adjust leveling ports are provided on each side of the operator platform above the mower-level adjusting bolts. With the hex-shaped tool, they provide convenient access to allow quick and easy adjustment of the mower for the best-cut quality of cut.

The Exact Adjust feature is standard on all Select Series™ X300 and X500 Tractors:

  • There is no need to reach under the fender deck while making the mower-level adjustment.
  • Onboard deck-leveling gauge, Exact Adjust ports, and the hex tool work together.
    • Level the mower deck side to side
    • Set the correct amount of rake (front-to-back deck orientation)
    • Calibrate the cutting height to the cut-height adjusting knob setting
  • Exact Adjust simplifies leveling the mower deck if equipped with a Power Flow™ blower.
    • To give the best cut, mower level should be adjusted if alternately mowing with and without blower installed. The Exact Adjust feature makes this easy.

Consult the operator's manual for the correct adjusting procedures for each tractor model. Basic adjusting steps to properly level the mower deck include:

  • Park the tractor on a level surface.
  • Inflate tires to the correct pressure.
  • Consult the label for the cutting-height knob that is located on the console of the machine. This label shows deck-leveling position and location of deck-leveling adjustment points.
Cut height adjusting knob Cut height adjusting knob
  • Set mower cutting-height knob to the correct deck-leveling position.
  • Adjust mower wheels as necessary so they do not contact the ground surface.
  • Remove the onboard deck-leveling gauge that is located under the seat.
  • Using the Exact Adjust ports and tool, adjust mower deck side-to-side level so the deck-leveling gauge just slips under the left and right lower deck rim at the designated adjustment points. The location of adjustment points will vary slightly between decks.
    • Left- and right-rear adjustment points are under the deck rim near the rear mower wheels, if equipped.
  • Adjust mower deck front-to-back level, if necessary.
    • Loosen rear nuts equally on each side of front lift rod.
    • Turn front nut equally on each side clockwise to raise front of mower or counterclockwise to lower it until gauge just slips under the front adjustment point.
    • Tighten rear nuts after adjustment is complete.
  • Return the gauge to its storage position. 

 

NOTE: The adjusting tool supplied with the tractor is an 8-mm ball-hex key, part number M162737. The rounded end allows for some misalignment with the bolt as the deck is adjusted.

54-in. (137-cm) Accel Deep™ (54A) Mower Deck cuts clean and is versatile

X590 with Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck X590 with Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck

The 54-in. (137-cm) Accel Deep Mower Deck is a forged-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility. Optimal performance and dispersion of clippings is provided, even at faster mowing speeds or in tall grass:

  • 4.83-in. (12.3-cm) depth throughout the entire deck shell for optimum mowing, mulching, and bagging performance
    • Optional lever-action or electric one-touch MulchControl™ system provides superior mulching performance and versatility.
  • Forged-steel design eliminates sharp edges and corners where material can build up and diminish mowing performance
  • Mower deck is suspended from the vehicle for a smooth and level cut
    • Adjustable mower wheels, positioned just above ground level, help reduce scalping 
  • 0.25-in. (6.4-mm) cut-height increments allow the mower to be set at the desired cut height
  • Compatible with high-performance Power Flow™ material collection systems
  • For use on X380, X384, X390, X394, X570, X580, X584, and model year 2016 and newer X590 Tractors
Excellent cut quality
54A Mower Deck underside (similar mower from ZTrak™ Z300 shown) 54A Mower Deck underside (similar mower from ZTrak™ Z300 shown)

Deep mower-deck forging gives excellent cut quality. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck without getting recut:

  • Reducing the amount of recutting enables more power to be used to cut incoming grass, which greatly improves mower capacity.
    • Helps maintain excellent cut quality at faster mowing speeds
  • Clean flow of material out of discharge area prevents cut material from interfering with cutting the incoming grass, making it possible for the blades to cut incoming material cleanly.
  • Even in mulching mode, cut evenness is improved compared to other designs because the additional depth allows for continuous circulation, optimal recutting, and an even distribution of clippings.
  • Exact Adjust deck-leveling system allows for easy and accurate leveling of the mower deck
Productivity - getting the job done fast
Left side of Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck Left side of Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck

Deep mower-deck forging gives high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:

  • Greatly improves mowers capacity to maintain excellent mowing performance in difficult mowing conditions and at higher speeds

Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material:

  • Gives a smooth, even discharge of clippings at all mowing speeds
  • Reduces the chance of plugging, especially important when operating in wet, thick, or dense grass and when bagging
  • The 54A Power Flow blower has an inlet housing with over 20 percent greater area than the 54X Power Flow blower used on previous machines.
Cleanliness - for the mower and the operator
Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck

The flat-top shape of the deck forging is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean:

  • There are few places to catch and hold material on top and underneath the deck.
    • Top of deck stays cleaner, reducing time and effort needed for cleaning and service
    • Underside of deck is self-cleaning to maintain optimum performance without buildup of material to interfere with the flow of air and clippings
    • Less need to clean and remove buildup of material from underside deck
  • The depth of the Accel Deep mower deck minimizes the amount of material that escapes from the front of the deck:
    • Limited amount of material to drift onto the operator and mower deck
    • Even for material discharged out the chute, less recutting results in larger pieces that are less likely to end up on the operator
    • Mulching prevents the discharge of material completely and MulchControl makes mulching a practical solution for most mowing situations.

Cleaning a mower deck, both top and bottom, is one of the most frequent maintenance activities:

  • The flat-top design reduces places for material to build up and makes material that does collect easy to remove.

Easy-to-adjust mower wheel and mower side reinforcement Easy-to-adjust mower wheel and mower side reinforcement

The 54A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets, to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service:

  • Forged from strong 10-gauge, 0.135-in. (3.4-mm) steel
  • Ribs in the deck shell add strength where it is needed.
  • The 54A has a 3 percent heavier overall weight than the Edge™ Xtra 54-in. (137-cm) Mower Deck used on previous machines.

Mower wheels are heavy duty:

  • Provides greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free life.
  • Setting wheels to the correct height for the cutting height quick and easy.

Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on engine lower bearings and mower deck bearings for longer life.

The 54A Mower Deck features a 5/8-in. (16-mm) diameter solid-steel rod side bumper that provides extra strength and protection.

Dual-stage E-coat and powder-paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.

Versatility - easy to change between side discharge, mulch, and bagging modes

The 54A Mower Deck is designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mower discharge mode to another:

  • With an optional MulchControl system installed (along with the special mulching blades), changing from mulch mode to side discharge mode or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever or touch of an electric switch.
  • The Power Flow rear bagger can be used with MulchControl by simply using the MulchControl lever or electric one-touch switch to move the MulchControl baffle to the side-discharge position.

48-in. (122-cm) Accel Deep™ (48A) Mower Deck cuts clean and is versatile

X584 with Accel Deep 48A Mower Deck X584 with Accel Deep 48A Mower Deck

The 48-in. (122-cm) Accel Deep Mower Deck is a forged-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility. Optimal performance and dispersion of clippings is provided, even at faster mowing speeds or in tall grass:

  • 4.83-in. (12.3-cm) depth throughout the entire deck shell for optimum mowing, mulching, and bagging performance
    • Optional lever-action or electric one-touch MulchControl™ system provides superior mulching performance and versatility.
  • Forged-steel design eliminates sharp edges and corners where material can build up and diminish mowing performance
  • Mower deck is suspended from the vehicle for a smooth and level cut
    • Adjustable mower wheels, positioned just above ground level, help reduce scalping 
  • 0.25-in. (6.4-mm) cut-height increments allow the mower to be set at the desired cut height
  • Compatible with high-performance Power Flow™ material collection systems
  • For use on X330, X350, X354, X370, X380, X384, X390, X394, X570, X580, X584, and model year 2016 and newer X590 Tractors
Excellent cut quality
48A Mower Deck underside (similar mower from ZTrak™ Z300 shown) 48A Mower Deck underside (similar mower from ZTrak™ Z300 shown)

Deep mower-deck forging gives excellent cut quality. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck without getting recut:

  • Reducing the amount of recutting enables more power to be used to cut incoming grass, which greatly improves mower capacity.
    • Helps maintain excellent cut quality at faster mowing speeds
  • Clean flow of material out of discharge area prevents cut material from interfering with cutting the incoming grass, making it possible for the blades to cut incoming material cleanly.
  • Even in mulching mode, cut evenness is improved compared to other designs because the additional depth allows for continuous circulation, optimal recutting, and an even distribution of clippings.
  • Exact Adjust deck-leveling system allows for easy and accurate leveling of the mower deck.
Productivity - getting the job done fast

Deep mower-deck forging gives high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:

  • Greatly improves mower's capacity to maintain excellent mowing performance in difficult mowing conditions and at higher speeds

Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material:

  • Gives a smooth, even discharge of clippings at all mowing speeds
  • Reduces the chance of plugging, especially important when operating in wet, thick, or dense grass and when bagging
  • The 48A Power Flow blower has an inlet housing with over 50 percent greater area than the 48X Power Flow blower used on previous machines.
Cleanliness - for the mower and the operator
Left side of Accel Deep 48A Mower Deck Left side of Accel Deep 48A Mower Deck

The flat-top shape of the deck forging is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean:

  • There are few places to catch and hold material on top and underneath the deck.
    • Top of deck stays cleaner, reducing time and effort needed for cleaning and service
    • Underside of deck is self-cleaning to maintain optimum performance without buildup of material to interfere with the flow of air and clippings
    • Less need to clean and remove buildup of material from underside deck
  • The depth of the Accel Deep mower deck minimizes the amount of material that escapes from the front of the deck:
    • Limited amount of material to drift onto the operator and mower deck
    • Even for material discharged out the chute, less recutting results in larger pieces that are less likely to end up on the operator
    • Mulching prevents the discharge of material completely and MulchControl makes mulching a practical solution for most mowing situations.

Cleaning a mower deck, both top and bottom, is one of the most frequent maintenance activities:

  • The flat-top design reduces places for material to build up and makes material that does collect easy to remove.

The 48A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets, to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service:

  • Forged from strong 10-gauge, 0.135-in. (3.4-mm) steel
  • Ribs in the deck shell add strength where it is needed
  • The 48A has a 23 percent heavier overall weight than the Edge™ Xtra 48-in. (122-cm) Mower Deck used on previous machines.

Mower wheels are heavy duty:

  • Provides greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free life.
  • Setting wheels to the correct height for the cutting height quick and easy.

Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on engine lower bearings and mower deck bearings for longer life.

The 48A Mower Deck features a 5/8-in. (16-mm) diameter solid-steel rod side bumper that provides extra strength and protection.

Dual-stage E-coat and powder-paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.

Versatility - easy to change between side discharge, mulch, and bagging modes

The 48A Mower Deck is designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mower discharge mode to another:

  • With an optional MulchControl system installed (along with the special mulching blades), changing from side discharging to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever or push of an electric switch.
  • The Power Flow rear bagger can be used with MulchControl by simply using the MulchControl lever or electric one-touch switch to move the mulch baffle to the side-discharge position.

Four-wheel steer maneuverability Four-wheel steer maneuverability

NOTE: In the schematic above, the solid line refers to a four-wheel steer tractor, and the hashed line refers to a two-wheel steer tractor.

Four-wheel steering provides very significant maneuverability and trimming advantages over two-wheel-steering equipped tractors (the following numbers correspond to the schematic above):

1. The uncut circle diameter is greatly reduced, eliminating or greatly reducing the need to back up when trimming around trees, shrubs, etc.

  • Cutting inside turns created by landscaping, flower beds, etc. can also be done much more efficiently with a four-wheel-steer equipped tractor.

2. Interference from the mower and tractor wheels is eliminated because they are several inches away from the object being trimmed around.

  • When cutting rectangle-shaped areas, square corners can be cut more effectively and efficiently. 

3. The outside turning circle is reduced, reducing the time spent turning and increasing mowing efficiency.

Hydraulic power steering
Power four-wheel steering Power four-wheel steering

Hydraulic power steering is standard equipment to maximize the benefits of four-wheel steering with both tight turns and easy steering:

  • Provides effortless automotive-like control
  • Reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity
  • Offers a tight turning radius for optimum maneuverability
  • Very easy and efficient trimming around objects
Designed for tight turns

The four-wheel steering system is designed for tight turns, leading to greater mowing efficiency:

  • Caster, camber, and kingpin angles are optimized to reduce effort, especially when going from straight ahead to a turn.
  • Steering geometry has been designed with the use of 3D modeling, so all four tires are working together.
  • Sealed ball bearings are used at the rear steering spindles to reduce friction.
  • Small scrub radius, less than 1 in. (2.54 cm) in the rear, reduces scuffing and bump-steer.

    Modern styling with functional design enhances appearance and performance

    Attractive styling Attractive styling
    Hood air-intake louvers Hood air-intake louvers

    Smooth, rounded contours present a modern, styled appearance:

    • Hood styling incorporates efficient full-length air-intake louvers on each side, rather than on the top.
      • Cooler engine operation
      • Lower operator station sound levels
    • Hot air is vented out the front grille, away from the operator.
    • The fully enclosed hood is made of molded-in-color material.
      • Reduces sound
      • Will not rust or dent
    • Distinctive grille and large, one-piece fender deck complete the styling package.
    Two high-quality headlights give excellent visibility
    Headlights Headlights

    Headlights are standard equipment on all models:

    • Two 27-W bulbs provide excellent lighting for good visibility during evening operation.
    • A headlight position on the ignition switch makes it easy to operate the headlights.
    • The headlights are designed to provide an optimum lighting pattern for mowing and snow removal.

    Snow removal is a strength of lawn tractors

    X590 Tractor shown with optional snow blower and weather enclosure X590 Tractor shown with optional snow blower and weather enclosure

    An advantage of lawn tractors is their ability to use attachments for snow removal. Lawn tractor owners can add a John Deere snow blower or front blade to make quick work of moving snow whenever the need arises. Weather enclosure and tire-chain attachments add comfort and performance.

    Equipment available for snow removal includes:

    • 44-in. (112-cm) Snow Blower for X570 Tractor
    • 47-in. (119-cm) Snow Blower for X580, X584, and X590 Tractors
    • 48-in. (122-cm) Front Blade
    • Tire chains or TerraGrip traction belts

    MulchControl™ system provides superior mulching performance and rapid conversion

    Lever-action MulchControl lever (shown on 48A mower deck) Lever-action MulchControl lever (shown on 48A mower deck)
    Electric one-touch MulchControl switch Electric one-touch MulchControl switch

    The optional MulchControl system 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:

    • Creates a beautiful looking lawn
    • Smaller grass clippings disappear into the lawn canopy
    • Reduces fertilizer needs
    • Grass clippings are not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
    • No need to dispose of bags of clippings
    How MulchControl works
    MulchControl baffle open (shown on Z300 48A mower deck) MulchControl baffle open (shown on Z300 48A mower deck)
    MulchControl baffle closed (shown on Z300 48A mower deck) MulchControl baffle closed (shown on Z300 48A mower deck)

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

    • The MulchControl system includes an adjustable MulchControl baffle near the discharge chute and fixed baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
    • The MulchControl handle, or an electric one-touch actuator, is on top of the mower deck and is used to open and close the MulchControl baffle.
    • When the MulchControl baffle is open, most of the material flows freely out the discharge deflector or into a material collection system.
    • When the MulchControl baffle is closed, material stays within the deck and gets chopped into mulch and deposited in the turf.

    MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:

    • For operators who usually mulch, but side discharge when grass gets too long
    • For operators who usually side discharge, but would like to close the chute to control clippings in some areas
    • For operators who always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
    • For operators who collect clippings but want to go farther before emptying the material collection system

    MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings.

     

    Electric one-touch MulchControl

    Electric one-touch MulchControl systems shift the MulchControl baffle using an electric actuator that is operated by a dash-mounted switch.

    Electric one-touch MulchControl switch	Electric one-touch MulchControl switch
    Electric one-touch MulchControl actuator (shown on 54A mower deck) Electric one-touch MulchControl actuator (shown on 54A mower deck)

    Operators can convert between modes without interrupting the mowing process, making it possible to change between modes:

    • When approaching driveways or flower beds where clippings would be undesirable
    • When a breeze blows clippings back onto the operator
    • For side discharge mowing only the areas of the property where grass is too thick for mulching
    • With 48A and 54A Mower Decks, for collecting only the areas of the property where grass is too tall or thick for mulching
    MulchControl limitations

    While in the side discharge mode, MulchControl still mulches 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 clean­up is desired
    • 42A Mower Deck requires a MulchControl baffle be removed to install the bagger chute

    When bagging with MulchControl on a 48A or 54A mower deck, the MulchControl baffle can be opened or closed with the Power Flow™ blower installed. The Power Flow blower runs without material when the baffle is closed.

    Rear baffle (A) must be removed for bagging with MulchControl with 42A mower decks Rear baffle (A) must be removed for bagging with MulchControl with 42A mower decks

    When bagging with MulchControl on a 42A mower deck, the cut-and-throw rear bagger can be used with the MulchControl blades. However, the rear MulchControl baffle (A) needs to be removed to install the bagger chute. The baffle is held in place with two carriage bolts. To return to mulching, the chute needs to be removed and the baffle replaced.

    MulchControl compatibility

    Each MulchControl system is an optional field-installed attachment and includes everything needed: baffles, mulch blades, a handle (lever action attachments) or an actuator, wiring, and switches (electric one-touch attachments).

    Deck-leveling gauge and hex adjusting tool stored under tractor seat Deck-leveling gauge and hex adjusting tool stored under tractor seat
    Exact Adjust access holes Exact Adjust access holes

    A mower deck must be level side-to-side and properly adjusted front-to-rear to give the best cutting performance. A removable onboard deck-leveling gauge and a hex-key tool are provided to make adjustment easy. They are securely stored under the tractor seat.

    Exact Adjust leveling ports are provided on each side of the operator platform above the mower-level adjusting bolts. With the hex-shaped tool, they provide convenient access to allow quick and easy adjustment of the mower for the best-cut quality of cut.

    The Exact Adjust feature is standard on all Select Series™ X300 and X500 Tractors:

    • There is no need to reach under the fender deck while making the mower-level adjustment.
    • Onboard deck-leveling gauge, Exact Adjust ports, and the hex tool work together.
      • Level the mower deck side to side
      • Set the correct amount of rake (front-to-back deck orientation)
      • Calibrate the cutting height to the cut-height adjusting knob setting
    • Exact Adjust simplifies leveling the mower deck if equipped with a Power Flow™ blower.
      • To give the best cut, mower level should be adjusted if alternately mowing with and without blower installed. The Exact Adjust feature makes this easy.

    Consult the operator's manual for the correct adjusting procedures for each tractor model. Basic adjusting steps to properly level the mower deck include:

    • Park the tractor on a level surface.
    • Inflate tires to the correct pressure.
    • Consult the label for the cutting-height knob that is located on the console of the machine. This label shows deck-leveling position and location of deck-leveling adjustment points.
    Cut height adjusting knob Cut height adjusting knob
    • Set mower cutting-height knob to the correct deck-leveling position.
    • Adjust mower wheels as necessary so they do not contact the ground surface.
    • Remove the onboard deck-leveling gauge that is located under the seat.
    • Using the Exact Adjust ports and tool, adjust mower deck side-to-side level so the deck-leveling gauge just slips under the left and right lower deck rim at the designated adjustment points. The location of adjustment points will vary slightly between decks.
      • Left- and right-rear adjustment points are under the deck rim near the rear mower wheels, if equipped.
    • Adjust mower deck front-to-back level, if necessary.
      • Loosen rear nuts equally on each side of front lift rod.
      • Turn front nut equally on each side clockwise to raise front of mower or counterclockwise to lower it until gauge just slips under the front adjustment point.
      • Tighten rear nuts after adjustment is complete.
    • Return the gauge to its storage position. 

     

    NOTE: The adjusting tool supplied with the tractor is an 8-mm ball-hex key, part number M162737. The rounded end allows for some misalignment with the bolt as the deck is adjusted.

    Deep mower-deck forging gives excellent cut quality. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck without getting recut:

    • Reducing the amount of recutting enables more power to be used to cut incoming grass, which greatly improves mower capacity.
      • Helps maintain excellent cut quality at faster mowing speeds
    • Clean flow of material out of discharge area prevents cut material from interfering with cutting the incoming grass, making it possible for the blades to cut incoming material cleanly.
    • Even in mulching mode, cut evenness is improved compared to other designs because the additional depth allows for continuous circulation, optimal recutting, and an even distribution of clippings.
    • Exact Adjust deck-leveling system allows for easy and accurate leveling of the mower deck
    Productivity - getting the job done fast

    Deep mower-deck forging gives high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:

    • Greatly improves mowers capacity to maintain excellent mowing performance in difficult mowing conditions and at higher speeds

    Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material:

    • Gives a smooth, even discharge of clippings at all mowing speeds
    • Reduces the chance of plugging, especially important when operating in wet, thick, or dense grass and when bagging
    • The 54A Power Flow blower has an inlet housing with over 20 percent greater area than the 54X Power Flow blower used on previous machines.
    Cleanliness - for the mower and the operator
    Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck Accel Deep 54A Mower Deck

    The flat-top shape of the deck forging is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean:

    • There are few places to catch and hold material on top and underneath the deck.
      • Top of deck stays cleaner, reducing time and effort needed for cleaning and service
      • Underside of deck is self-cleaning to maintain optimum performance without buildup of material to interfere with the flow of air and clippings
      • Less need to clean and remove buildup of material from underside deck
    • The depth of the Accel Deep mower deck minimizes the amount of material that escapes from the front of the deck:
      • Limited amount of material to drift onto the operator and mower deck
      • Even for material discharged out the chute, less recutting results in larger pieces that are less likely to end up on the operator
      • Mulching prevents the discharge of material completely and MulchControl makes mulching a practical solution for most mowing situations.

    Cleaning a mower deck, both top and bottom, is one of the most frequent maintenance activities:

    • The flat-top design reduces places for material to build up and makes material that does collect easy to remove.

    Four-wheel steer maneuverability Four-wheel steer maneuverability

    NOTE: In the schematic above, the solid line refers to a four-wheel steer tractor, and the hashed line refers to a two-wheel steer tractor.

    Four-wheel steering provides very significant maneuverability and trimming advantages over two-wheel-steering equipped tractors (the following numbers correspond to the schematic above):

    1. The uncut circle diameter is greatly reduced, eliminating or greatly reducing the need to back up when trimming around trees, shrubs, etc.

    • Cutting inside turns created by landscaping, flower beds, etc. can also be done much more efficiently with a four-wheel-steer equipped tractor.

    2. Interference from the mower and tractor wheels is eliminated because they are several inches away from the object being trimmed around.

    • When cutting rectangle-shaped areas, square corners can be cut more effectively and efficiently. 

    3. The outside turning circle is reduced, reducing the time spent turning and increasing mowing efficiency.

    Hydraulic power steering
    Power four-wheel steering Power four-wheel steering

    Hydraulic power steering is standard equipment to maximize the benefits of four-wheel steering with both tight turns and easy steering:

    • Provides effortless automotive-like control
    • Reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity
    • Offers a tight turning radius for optimum maneuverability
    • Very easy and efficient trimming around objects
    Designed for tight turns

    The four-wheel steering system is designed for tight turns, leading to greater mowing efficiency:

    • Caster, camber, and kingpin angles are optimized to reduce effort, especially when going from straight ahead to a turn.
    • Steering geometry has been designed with the use of 3D modeling, so all four tires are working together.
    • Sealed ball bearings are used at the rear steering spindles to reduce friction.
    • Small scrub radius, less than 1 in. (2.54 cm) in the rear, reduces scuffing and bump-steer.

    The 21-in. (53-cm) high-back cut-and-sewn seat (X580, X584, X590) delivers a comfortable, smooth ride and excellent support for the operator:

    • A smoother, more comfortable ride results from the use of more foam than in a form-in-place seat and more side-bolstering to stabilize the operator on uneven terrain.
    • Improved visual appeal is provided by the thicker cushion, additional bolstering in the seat and back, and an embroidered John Deere logo that makes this upscale seat look as good as it feels.
    • Long-term pliability and less chance of cracking are advantages of the cut-and-sewn process, which does not require heating during the manufacturing process and gives a more uniform vinyl thickness.
    • Additional operator support and comfort is available with optional BM23761 armrests.
    • Reduced cost of repair, should the seat cover be damaged, is available with a replaceable seat cover available from Parts.

    • Seat features a suspension that is easily adjusted for the operator's weight and height.
