With John Deere Hydraulic MulchControl, mower users can now switch between discharging and mulching, giving them more versatility out in the yard.

Here are some tips for integrating the system into an X700 Signature Series Mower.

John Deere has rolled out electric One-Touch MulchControl™ to help customers quickly switch between side discharge mowing and mulching with the press of a button. The attachment is available for Accel Deep™ mower decks on John Deere X300 and X500 Select Series tractors.

A heavy-duty baffle opens and closes to convert the mower from side-discharge mode to mulch mode, or vice versa. When the baffle is open, the majority of the material flows freely out the discharge chute or into a material collection system. Once the baffle is closed, the material stays within the deck and gets chopped into mulch and deposited onto the turf.
