Infinite control of ground speed and a smooth change of direction provide both efficiency and operator convenience.A differential lock provides positive power to both rear wheels for increased traction. The V-twin, liquid-cooled John Deere i Torque™ power system with electronic fuel injection (EFI) provides exceptional performance and has the durability to handle commercial-use applications.Now the operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side-discharge or bagging when needed.
The full-time four-wheel drive (4WD) front axle provides a superior combination of traction and maneuverability.When the tractor is in a turn, the front wheels need to rotate faster because of the larger arc, compared to the rear wheels, they are traveling in.Optimal performance and dispersion of clippings is provided, even at faster mowing speeds: Deep mower-deck stamping 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 re-cutting so more power is available to process incoming grass: Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on mower bearings for longer life. (16-mm) diameter solid-steel rod side bumper that provides extra strength and protection. However, it is compatible with the 48 Accel Deep (48A) Mower because the increased deck height and the height of its Power Flow blower housing lift the chute high enough to clear the wheel and fender with the 3-bag hopper installed. (14 cm) delivers excellent airflow, so material can be processed quickly and efficiently. (3.8-mm) steel and has welded-on reinforcement at the bottom edge for extra strength and durability.
The 3-Bag, 14-bu (493-L) Power Flow is not compatible with a X729, X739, or X749 Tractor equipped with a 48X Mower Deck because the chute can contact the rear tire in a turn.
Drive-over mower quick reference (major steps) John Deere has designed a system that makes it easy to remove and reinstall the mower deck.
A few steps need to be followed carefully to ensure success. Refer to the operator’s manual for a more detailed procedure.
The hydrostatic front-wheel motors automatically increase the average travel speed of the front wheels when the tractor is in a turn.
The full-time four wheel drive system optimizes steering performance to provide maneuverability and trimming ability comparable to that of two-wheel drive (2WD) models, turning radius of 25 in. (53.3 cm) for four-wheel steer models, with the added benefit of four-wheel traction. (122-cm) Accel Deep Mower Deck is a stamped-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility.
Advantages of mulching grass clippings include: While in the side-discharge mode, Mulch Control will still mulch about one third of the material.
