John Deere expanded its Mulch On Demand (MOD) mower deck offering to the 2014 QuikTrak commercial mower lineup, which includes the 652R MOD and 652R EFI MOD models. The Mulch On Demand deck was previously only available in the John Deere ZTrak line.
The John Deere Mulch On Demand deck allows an operator to switch between mulching and side discharging without leaving the mower. This saves cleanup time by keeping clippings off sidewalks and driveways and out of mulch beds. The QuikTrak MOD can be converted from a wide-open-side-discharge mode to a full-chambered mulching mode or any position in-between by holding down on the electric switch that is conveniently located on the dash.
The 652R MOD features a commercial-quality V-twin air-cooled engine coupled with an easy-to-learn hydrostatic transmission. The unit is equipped with a 7-gauge 52-inch Mulch On Demand mower deck and a 23.5hp* engine. The 652R EFI MOD boasts a commercial-quality electronic fuel injected (EFI) V-twin air-cooled engine for faster starts, smoother operation, and greater efficiency. The EFI model is also equipped with a seven-gauge 52-inch MOD deck, but comes with a 25 hp* engine.
