54" mulching kit from John Deere, that will fit the 190C, D170, G110 & LA150. The mulching attachment allows converting the mower so it can be used to mulch grass or leaves. Remember you will have to follow the 1/3rd 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.


 
 

 This kit also includes installation instructions. This kit does not fit any other 54" decks. If you are unsure which deck you have on your tractor email or call us so we can help you determine which deck you have.

Operating tips for 54-in. mulching kit
 
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 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 intervalsapproximately 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 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 FlowTM  MCS:
  • For side-discharging and using the 54C Power Flow material collecting system, remove the Mulching Attachment
  • The special mulching blades may be used if satisfactory results are achieved; if not, remove and replace with standard blades
  • Rubber front edges can be left on if side discharging; however, cut quality may be reduced slightly when mowing lush grass
Bagging:
  • Remove mulching attachment and install the appropriate medium or high lift blade(s)
Installation and removal information:
 
The 54-in. Tricycler kits can be easily removed while the mower is mounted on the tractor.
Only two capscrews and nuts, located at the front and right side of the mower, need to be removed.
