Smooth, rounded contours present a modern, styled appearance:
Xenoy is a registered trademark of SABIC Innovative Plastics.
The tractor is powered by an iTorque™ power system, a combination of engine features, and an exclusive hood design that provides superior lugging ability, even cooling, and durability.
A large 603-cc, 12.2-kW engine at 3100 rpm has plenty of power and torque for superior performance. The larger, more powerful engine also allows the engine to be operated at a lower 3100-rpm speed for quieter operation.
Key engine features include:
A flywheel alternator provides plenty of capacity to quickly recharge the battery and power electrical equipment, such as lights or a sprayer:
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:
The Exact Adjust feature is standard on all Select Series™ X300 and X500 Tractors:
Consult the operator's manual for the correct adjusting procedures for each tractor model. Basic adjusting steps to properly level the mower deck include:
NOTE: The adjusting tool supplied with the tractor is an 8-mm (0.31-in.) ball-hex key, part number M162737. The rounded end allows for some misalignment with the bolt as the deck is adjusted.
A heavy-duty sector-and-pinion steering system with quality bearings provides easy and precise control for the life of the tractor:
Easy steering is important for an enjoyable mowing experience:
The innovative design of the 107-cm (42-in.) Edge Mulch Deck sets a high standard for mulching grass and leaves:
An on-deck storage position is provided to store the material gates.
The underside of the mower deck is contoured and free of obstructions:
Ordering information: 5377M - 107-cm (42-in.) Edge Mulch Deck (42M)
The 107-cm (42-in.) Accel Deep Mower Deck is a stamped-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:
Deep mower-deck stamping gives excellent cut quality. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck without getting recut:
Deep mower-deck stamping gives high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows the cut and suspended material room to quickly exit the deck, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:
Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material:
MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:
An optional 250-L (7-bu) Cut-and-Throw Rear Bagger material collection system (MCS) is available for use with the 107-cm (42-in.) Accel Deep Mower. It provides an efficient means of collecting grass clippings and leaves.
The hopper design provides modern styling, great bagging performance, cleaner operation, and easy-to-empty bags:
This rear bagger chute (ordered separately) is required, along with the 250-L (7-bu) Hopper , to provide a complete rear bagging system for an X300 Series Tractor equipped with a 107-cm (42-in.) Accel Deep Mower Deck (42A):
The flat-top shape of the deck stamping is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean:
Cleaning a mower deck, both top and bottom, is one of the most frequent maintenance activities:
A wash port is provided to make cleaning the underside of the mower deck easy:
The 42A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets, to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service:
Smooth contour of flat-top deck stamping has few places for material to catch and collect.
Mower wheels are double captured:
Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on the engines lower bearing and mower deck bearings for longer life.
Rolled outer edge of the deck provides extra strength and protection.
Dual-stage E-coat and powder-paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.
The MulchControl system of the 42A Mower Deck is standard equipment and 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:
MulchControl provides an advantage in the following mowing situations:
MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. The operator has all the benefits of mulching with the ability to change to side discharging or bagging when needed.
While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl will still mulch 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:
The 42A Mower is designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mode to another:
The mower’s cut-and-throw design allows bagging with the addition of the bagger chute and hopper - no blower is required.
With the standard MulchControl system, changing from side discharge to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever.
A convenient handle is included on the top section of the chute to make installation and removal easier. A fill indicator tells the operator when the bags are getting full.
The bagger chute is securely held in place at the front and rear to provide a tight seal between the mower deck and the chute. The rear latch is adjustable to allow for the optimum setting for easy use and a tight seal.
The frame is made of heavy-formed and welded steel, reinforced in critical areas for even greater strength:
