    John Deere mulching head

    Boasting a heavy-duty design, the MH60C mulching head ensures long-term durability by utilizing oversize 64-mm (2.5-inch) sealed rotor bearings and double carbide-tipped teeth.

  • Heavy-duty push bar helps to topple trees and brush while protecting the carrier from debris.
  • Two-speed hydraulic system enables the MH60C to efficiently utilize available horsepower.
  • Preset pressure levels allow the motor to automatically shift to high displacement, increasing torque by 30 percent to reduce stalling and increase rotor speed recovery.
  • The hydraulic brake stops the rotor in less than 10 seconds, eliminating the “freewheeling” common with other designs.
