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 located on the dash.

The unit is equipped with a seven-gauge, 52-inch Mulch On Demand mower deck and a 23.5-horsepower engine. The 652R EFI MOD has a commercial-quality electronic fuel injected (EFI) V-twin air-cooled engine. The EFI model is also equipped with a seven-gauge, 52-inch MOD deck, and it comes with a 25-horsepower engine.
