54" 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 includes two deflector ramps that are used to redirect the clippings into the blades for recutting. Specially shaped mulch blades with longer cutting edges that are designed to cut grass into fine clippings and direct them into the turf
This kit also includes installation instructions. This kit does not fit 54C 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.
