48C Mulching kit from John Deere. 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 Controls clippings at all three blades effectively for improved mulching and more even distribution of mulched clippings. The plastic molded part will not rust and the mulching attachment is held in place with wing nuts for easy installation.
Special mulching blades are included. These blades can also be used for side-discharge mowing with a Power Flow material collection system, though overall cut quality may decline slightly.
This kit also includes installation instructions. This kit does not fit older style 48" 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.
This 48C mulching kit is compatible on the following models with 48" decks that have three blades.
