Get a clean cut with the flat-top design of the 48-inch (122-cm) Accel Deep™ (48A) Mower Deck
The 48-inch (122-cm) Accel Deep™ Mower Deck is a forged 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 or in tall grass.
4.83-inch (12.3-cm) deep throughout the entire deck shell for optimum mowing and mulching performance.
Optional MulchControl™ system provides superior mulching performance and versatility.
Forged steel design eliminates sharp edges and corners where material can build up and diminish mowing performance.
Mower deck is suspended from the vehicle for a smooth and level cut.
Adjustable mower wheels, positioned just above ground level, help reduce scalping.
0.25-inch (6.4-mm) cut height increments allow the mower to be set at the desired cut height.
Deep mower deck forging gives excellent cut quality. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck without getting recut.
Reducing the amount of recutting enables more power to be used to cut incoming grass, which greatly improves mower capacity.
Helps maintain excellent cut quality at faster mowing speeds.
Clean flow of material out of discharge area prevents cut material from interfering with cutting the incoming grass, making it possible for the blades to cut incoming material cleanly.
Even in mulching mode, cut evenness is improved compared to other designs because the additional depth allows for continuous circulation, optimal recutting, and an even distribution of clippings.
Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material.
Gives a smooth, even discharge of clippings at all mowing speeds.
Reduces the chance of plugging, especially important when operating in wet, thick, or dense grass.
The flat-top shape of the deck forging is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean.
There are few places to catch and hold material on top and underneath the deck.
Top of the deck stays cleaner, reducing time and effort needed for cleaning and service.
Underside of deck is self-cleaning to maintain optimum performance without buildup of material to interfere with the flow of air and clippings.
Less need to clean and remove buildup of material from underside of deck.
The depth of the Accel Deep™ Mower Deck minimizes the amount of material that escapes from the front of the deck.
Limited amount of material to drift onto the operator and mower deck.
Even for material discharged out the chute, less recutting results in larger pieces that are less likely to end up on the operator.
Mulching prevents the discharge of material completely and MulchControl™ makes mulching a practical solution for most mowing situations.
Cleaning a mower deck, both top and bottom, is one of the most frequent maintenance activities.
The flat-top design reduces places for material to build up and makes material that does collect easy to remove.
A wash port is provided to make cleaning the underside of the mower deck easy, and includes a hose connector.
The 48A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service.
Forged from strong 10-gauge, 0.135-inch (3.4-mm) steel.
Ribs in the deck shell add strength where it is needed.
The 48A has a 23% heavier overall weight than the Edge™ Xtra 48-inch (122-cm) Mower Deck used on previous machines.
Mower wheels are double-captured.
Provides greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free life.
Single-bolt adjustment makes setting wheels to the correct height for the cutting height quick and easy.
Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on engine lower bearing and mower deck bearings for longer life.
The 48A Mower Deck features a 5/8-inch (16-mm) 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 Deck is designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mower discharge mode to another.
With MulchControl™, changing from side-discharge to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever.
The MulchControl™ system for the 48A Mower Deck is an optional field-installed attachment and makes mulching 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 the lawn material. Advantages of mulching grass clippings include:
A beautiful looking lawn.
Grass clippings not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds.
Less fertilizer use.
Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings.
MulchControl™ is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain.
The MulchControl™ attachment includes baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
The MulchControl™ baffle, or divider, between the left and middle spindles is about halfway down. The height is designed to balance the mulching and side-discharge modes.
When the MulchControl™ baffle is open, the divider between the left and middle spindles passes a portion of the material to the discharge opening, along with the material from the middle and right spindle areas.
When the MulchControl™ baffle is closed, the material stays within the deck and gets chopped into mulch and deposited in the turf.
The MulchControl™ handle is located on the top of the mower deck and used to open and close the discharge baffle.
The operator is required to get off the machine in order to engage or disengage mulch mode.
Changing from mulching to side-discharging or vice versa takes only a few seconds.
MulchControl™ is well-suited to the following mowing situations:
Usually mulch, but side-discharge when grass gets too long.
Usually side-discharge, but would like to be able to close the chute to control clippings.
Always mulch a main lawn, but often side-discharge secondary lawns.
MulchControl™ puts the operator in control of the clippings. The operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side-discharge when needed.
While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl™ still mulches about one-third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial-mulch mode. This can be an advantage as it helps to reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times, this could work as a disadvantage.
When cutting strong southern grasses, such as Zoysia and Bermuda.
When cutting in wet, high-growth conditions, such as those found in the Pacific Northwest United States.
When optimum bagging and lawn cleanup is desired.
An optional 6.5-bushel (230-L) Power Flow rear bagger material collection system (MCS) is available for use with the 48-inch (122-cm) Accel Deep™ Mower. It provides an efficient means of collecting grass clippings and leaves. The bagger design provides modern styling, great bagging performance, cleaner operation, and easy-to-empty bags.
