The Edge cutting system has been trademarked to emphasize the advantages of the John Deere mower deck designs. They give superior convenience, performance, and reliability:

  • Deep-deck mower design lifts grass for a clean, even cut.
  • Smooth underside of mower prevents grass buildup and evenly disperses grass clippings.
  • The rolled outer edge of the deck provides extra strength and protection.
  • Dual-stage E-coat and powder paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.

The 48-in. (121.9-cm) Edge mower deck is a three-spindle design with heavy-duty characteristics:

  • Four mower wheels are standard equipment for a smooth mowing job, even in rolling terrain.
  • Flexible discharge chute minimizes property and mower deck damage.
  • No tools are required to go from mulching (with mulch cover) to side discharge to rear bagging.
  • A mulch cover is an optional attachment that can be installed without the use of tools.
  • A high-performance mulching blade (GX21786) is available to enhance mulching performance.
  • Bagging blades are available to improve bagging performance.

The mower deck has a rolled lip to provide greater strength and protection. The rugged 12-gauge, 0.105-in. (2.7-mm) steel-deck mower will provide years of dependable mowing.

The blade-to-spindle design provides a unique mounting system for the mower blade that gives extra safety and convenience.

A cut-and-throw, 6.5-bu (229-L) rear bagger is sold separately and comes with bagging blades.
