Deep-deck design of 5.5 in. (140 mm) delivers excellent airflow, so material can be processed quickly and efficiently. Deck is stamped from 9-gauge, 0.150-in. (3.8-mm) steel and has welded-on reinforcement at the bottom edge for extra strength and durability.

The 54-in. (137-cm) high-capacity deck is formed in a hydraulic press to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside for reduced material buildup:
  • Wider and higher discharge opening provides an even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.
  • Durable plastic deflector spreads grass clippings evenly across the lawn, is hinged, and can be raised to minimize the storage space required. 
  • 1-in. (25-mm) cold-forged spindles are heat-treated for strength and supported by ball bearings.
  • Front edge is raised above the blade plane to allow even cutting of tall grass.
  • Blade overlap is greater than many conventional decks, for a clean cut.
  • Mower can side-discharge, mulch (optional), or use a Power Flow™ collection system (optional).

AutoConnect driveshaft is an optional kit that will automatically connect or remove the drive from the mower deck to the tractor's mid power take-off (PTO) shaft.
 
The AutoConnect drive does not need to be removed from the tractor when using front-powered equipment. However, the AutoConnect driveshaft must be disconnected from the tractor's PTO shaft and locked in place to allow the mid-PTO shaft (required for front-powered equipment) to be installed.
