Smooth, rounded contours present a modern, styled appearance:
Xenoy is a registered trademark of SABIC Innovative Plastics.
The tractor is powered by a John Deere iTorque™ power system, a combination of engine features and an exclusive hood design that provide superior lugging ability, even cooling, and durability.
A 13.8 kW at 3350 rpm V-twin engine provides plenty of power and torque to handle tough mulching, mowing, and bagging conditions.
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:
The frame is made of heavy-formed and welded steel, reinforced in critical areas for even greater strength:
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 122-cm (48-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 exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of re-cutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:
Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material:
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 48A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets, to keep the blades perfectly aligned, even after years of tough service:
Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on engine lower bearings and mower deck bearings for longer life.
The 48A Mower Deck features a 16-mm (5/8-in.) diameter solid-steel rod side bumper that provides extra strength and protection.
Dual-stage E-coat and powder-paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.
The 48A Mower is designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mower discharge mode to another:
The MulchControl attachment for the 48A Mower Deck 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 is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:
MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:
MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. Now the operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side discharge 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 48A Power Flow blower is easy to install and easy to clean, as it pivots out from the mower for easy access.
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.
