John Deere is introducing easy-to-attach mid-mount mower deck designs with their new 60D and 72D AutoConnect™ mower decks, available for the 3000 TWENTY (3120, 3320, 3520 and 3720) Series Compact Utility Tractors.
The AutoConnect mower decks feature the ability to physically drive over the mower deck and automatically connect the PTO drive shaft.
According to the company’s new product announcement, the AutoConnect feature automatically connects the mower deck to the tractor and hooks up the difficult to reach PTO shaft when the customer drives over the top of the mower. This means consumers can install their mower deck in seconds without leaving the tractor seat, virtually eliminating all frustration typically associated with this task. Removing the mower deck is just as simple.
"Based on customer input, John Deere brings yet another industry exclusive innovation to the market with the new AutoConnect mower decks," said John Arthur, Strategy Manager, Property Owner Segment. "Combined with existing attachment systems like iMatch AutoHitch™ , Quik-Park™ Loaders and rock-shaft assist backhoes, the new AutoConnect mid-mower decks solidify John Deere's position as the market leader in easy-to-use compact tractors and attachments."
According to the company, the AutoConnect mower decks will be available beginning this month at John Deere dealers nationwide.
