Productivity - getting the job done fast
Trim side of Accel Deep Mower Deck Trim side of Accel Deep Mower Deck

Deep mower-deck stamping delivers high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows room for the cut and suspended material to exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:

  • Greatly improves the mower’s capacity to maintain excellent mowing performance and cut quality in difficult mowing conditions and at higher speeds
  • 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 and when bagging
Cleanliness - for the mower and the operator

Cleaning a mower deck is one of the most frequent maintenance activities. The flat-top shape of the deck stamping 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 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 drifts 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 the MulchControl attachment makes mulching a practical solution for most mowing situations.

Superior durability is designed in
Hinged spindle pocket cover Hinged spindle pocket cover
Double-captured mower wheel Double-captured mower wheel

Accel Deep Mower Decks have strong spindle pockets to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service:

  • Ribs in the deck shell add strength where it is needed.
  • Mower wheels are double captured:
    • Provides greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free life
    • Single-bolt adjustment makes setting wheels to the correct cutting height quick and easy
  • Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on engine lower bearings and mower deck bearings for longer life.
  • A 5/8-in. (16-mm) diameter solid-steel rod side guard provides extra strength and protection.
  • Dual-stage E-coat and powder-paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.
  • Versatile deck makes it easy to change between side discharge, mulch, and bagging modes.
    • With the optional MulchControl attachment installed (along with the special mulching blades), changing from side discharge to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever.
  • The Power Flow rear bagger can be used with the MulchControl attachment and blades installed by simply placing the MulchControl lever in the side discharge position.

MulchControl option

The MulchControl attachment for the 54A 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 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 required
  • Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings
How MulchControl works
MulchControl baffle in open position MulchControl baffle in open position

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.
MulchControl baffle in closed position MulchControl baffle in closed position
MulchControl handle MulchControl handle
  • The MulchControl handle is located on 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 discharge 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
  • Bag clippings, but want to go farther before emptying bags

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 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 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

Get superior performance and reliability with a large 44.2-cu in. (724-cc) displacement engine that has many premium features:

  • Easy inspection and removal of any debris that may have collected using two large cleanout ports that are integrated into the engine shroud over the cylinder heads.
  • Engine service times, reliability, and life are increased with the use of premium engine oil and air filtering systems, as well as the cooling design.

Experience plenty of power and torque to handle tough mulching, mowing, and bagging conditions with the 24-hp (17.9-kW) V-twin engine:

  • Greater torque, lower vibration, and improved sound quality from the V-twin cylinder design
  • Fast starts with electronic ignition
  • Long engine life with cast-iron cylinder liners
  • Excellent power and fuel economy with overhead valves
  • Reliable operation with in-line fuel filter
Separate engine speed lever and spring-loaded choke lever Separate engine speed lever and spring-loaded choke lever

The engine speed lever and choke control lever are separate controls:

  • The engine speed lever is easy to use - there is no need to worry about pushing too far and engaging the choke like on single throttle/choke lever systems.
  • The choke lever is spring loaded so the operator cannot accidentally operate the tractor with the choke on.

The engine area is open for visibility to important service points, making it easy to inspect and clean the engine.

Holes in the vehicle frame cross member are pre-drilled for ease of installation:

  • The jack makes servicing the underside of the mower deck safer and easier.
  • Ensure motion levers are in parked position and tires are blocked before use.
  • Placed in the storage position, the jack can be carried on the machine and available for use when needed.
  • The jack will need to be removed when using front ballast that is required for a rear material collection system, so it is not compatible with a material collection system.
