The 42-in. (107-cm) Accel Deep™ (42A) Mower Deck cuts clean and is versatile
The 42-in. (107-cm) AccelDeep 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. 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. The flat-top shape of the deck stamping is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean. A wash port is provided to make cleaning the underside of the mower deck easy.
Exact Adjust ports and on-board deck-leveling tools make precise deck adjustments easy
A mower deck must be level side-to-side and properly adjusted front-to-rear to give the best cutting performance. A removable on-board deck-leveling gauge and a hex-key tool are provided to make adjustment easy. They are securely stored under the tractor seat. Exact Adjust leveling ports are provided on each side of the operator platform above the mower-level adjusting bolts. With the hex-shaped tool, they provide convenient access to allow quick and easy adjustment of the mower for the best-cut quality of cut.
Four-wheel steer gives superior maneuverability and trimming ability
Four-wheel steering provides very significant maneuverability and trimming advantages over that of two-wheel-steering-equipped tractors. The four-wheel steering system is designed for tight turns, leading to greater mowing efficiency. Sealed ball bearings are used at critical all-wheel-steer joints for reduced friction, longer life, and less maintenance.
Engine is smooth-running and reliable V-twin air-cooled design
The tractor is powered by a John Deere iTorque™ power system, a combination of engine features and an exclusive hood design that provides superior lugging ability, even cooling, and durability. A flywheel alternator provides plenty of capacity to quickly recharge the battery and power electrical equipment, such as lights or a sprayer.
