NOTE: The direction control lever can be
locked in the forward position. The lever must
be held in the reverse position to travel backwards.
Gear Shift Lever
The gear shift lever has two operating
positions. The forward (“HIGH”) position is the
fast gear. The rearward (“LOW”) position is the
GEAR
slow gear.
SHIFT
The gear shift lever also controls the PTO
speed. The forward (“HIGH”) position is the
LOW
fast PTO speed. The rearward (“LOW”)
position is the slow PTO speed.
NOTE: The gear shift lever must be in the neutral position
to engage PTO lever.
NOTE: The gear shift lever must be in the “HIGH” or
“LOW” position to properly transmit power to the PTO or
wheels.
Range Shift Handle
The range shift handle has two operating
positions. Pull the handle to the rearward
H
(“LOW”) position for the slow speed. Push the
L handle to the forward (“HIGH”) position for the
fast speed.
NOTE: On two-speed models, use the direction control
lever to rock the unit back and forth while moving the
range shift handle to help align the clutch teeth and
engage the axle.

FILL FUEL TANK
WARNING: Never move the range shift
handle while on a slope or while the tractor
is moving. Move the handle only when the
tractor is on level ground and stopped
(except for rocking to engage the clutch as
described above).
WARNING: Use caution with fuel. Fuel is
very flammable. Keep fuel in a clean and
tight container. Keep fuel away from fire or
heat. Never put fuel in the fuel tank while
the engine is running or hot. Clean up any
spilled fuel before starting the engine.
Throttle Lever
The throttle lever is used to control the engine
speed. To increase the engine speed, move
the lever up to the “FAST” position. To
decrease the engine speed, move the lever
down to the “SLOW” position.
Choke Control
The choke control is used to choke a cold
engine for starting. The choke control is
located on the instrument panel. On 8.5HP,
12HP and 13.5HP tractors, push the choke
lever up to the “ON” position to choke the engine. On all
other tractors, pull the choke control knob out to the “ON”
position to choke the engine.
Add fuel to the fuel tank as needed. See engine manual
for the correct type and grade of fuel.
1. Put the unit in an open area.
2. Stop the engine and lock the brake.
3. Clean the fuel cap and the area around the fuel cap
to prevent dirt from entering the fuel tank.
4. Remove the cap from the fuel tank.
5. Fill the fuel tank. Be careful not to spill the fuel.
6. Install the cap on the fuel tank and tighten.
7. Clean up any spilled fuel before starting the engine.
TO STOP IN AN EMERGENCY
1. Turn the ignition key to "Off".
2. Move the HI/LO to the “NEUTRAL” position and the
PTO control to the “OFF” position.
3. Wait for all moving parts to stop before leaving the
operator’s position.
PTO Control
The PTO control is used to connect or
disconnect the engine power to an
attachment. The forward position is “OFF”;
the rearward position is “ON”.

system.
Kick Stand
The kick stand is used to hold the tractor level when there
is no attachment on the tractor. The kick stand must be in
the raised position when moving the tractor.
Brake Handlebar
On tractors with steering brakes, the brake handlebar is
used to steer the tractor. Swing the brake handlebar left
for a right turn or right for a left turn.
Parking Brake (optional on 985115)
The parking brake is used to hold the tractor in position
when not in use.
Electric Start Engine
1. Check each item in "Before Each Use" in the
Maintenance Schedule.
2. Move the direction control lever to the “NEUTRAL”
position.
GB - 12

TO OPERATE UNIT
Using the Steering Brakes (optional)
Operating the Transmission
The steering brakes are used when the tractor is being
driven forward.
To make a right turn, push the brake handlebar to the left.
To make a left turn, pull the brake handlebar to the right.
Learn to operate the tractor in an open area while using a
slow gear and slow engine speed.
1. Start the engine.

be held down at all times whenever the transmission is in
gear and/or the PTO lever is in the “ON” position.
6. To go forward, move the direction control lever
forward until the lever stays in the forward position.
If the lever is not in the full forward position, the
clutch will slip and cause premature clutch wear.
7. To move backward, hold the direction control lever
to the rear. The lever will return to “NEUTRAL” when
released.
8. To stop the tractor, put the direction control lever in
the “NEUTRAL” position. If the PTO is off, you can

proceeding.
Check each item in "Before Storage" in the Maintenance
Schedule. See Engine Manual for detailed instructions on
preparing the engine for storage.
To Put The Tractor Into Service:
When The Tractor Will Not Be Operated For Two
Months Or More:
1. Do the daily and 25-hour maintenance, but do not
add gasoline.
2. Clean the tractor. Paint or oil bare metal surfaces to
prevent rust.
IMPORTANT: NEVER spray unit with high-pressure
water or store unit outdoors. Water can seep into sealed
bearings, which are sealed against dirt and debris only,
causing reduced component life.
NOTE: Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners on any
painted surface. Do not allow gasoline or oil to remain on
any surface.

Gravely Division of Ariens Company (Gravely) hereby warrants to the
original consumer purchaser that all Gravely Two-Wheel,
Professional G, Pro, and ProMaster products will be free from defects
in material and workmanship for a period of two (2) years from the date
of purchase or 1000 hours, whichever comes first.
Protection Plan
Gravely will repair or replace any part found upon examination by
Gravely to be defective. Such repair or replacement will be free of
charge to the purchaser (labor and parts), except as noted below.
This warranty is subject to the following exceptions, conditions, and limitations:
Usage Requirement
The duration of this warranty shall be ninety days or 1000 hours, whichever comes first, if the product is rented or leased.
Exclusions (No Warranty)
• Normal maintenance, services, and normal replacement items,
such as spark plugs, oil, oil filters, air filters, mufflers, belts,
tires, shoes, runners, scraper blades, shear bolts, mower blades,
mower vanes, headlights, light bulbs, knives, etc. are not covered
by this warranty.
• Any equipment which has been altered, misused, misassembled,
improperly adjusted, neglected, or damaged by accident is not
covered by this warranty.
• Service completed by someone other than an authorized
Gravely dealer is not covered by this warranty.
• Any attachment not approved by Gravely nor any parts that
are not genuine Gravely service parts are not covered by this
warranty.
• Engines and engine accessories are covered only by the
warranty made by the engine manufacturer, and are not covered
by this warranty.
• If the product is equipped with a Hydro-Gear transmission
and/or Hydro-Gear drive components, the Hydro-Gear
transmission and/or drive components are covered only by the
warranty made by Hydro-Gear, and are not covered by this
warranty.
• This warranty applies only to products purchased in the United
States (including Puerto Rico) and Canada. In all other
countries, contact place of purchase.
Purchaser’s Responsibilities
• The purchaser must perform maintenance and minor
adjustments per the operator’s manual.
• The purchaser must notify Gravely or an authorized Gravely
service representative of the need for warranty service.
• The purchaser must transport the product to and from the place
of warranty repair.

covered by this warranty are warranted to be free of defects
for a period of ninety (90) days following the date of purchase,

• Four to twelve months - Prorated over 12 months
Gravely may from time to time change the design of its products. Nothing contained in this warranty shall be construed as obligating
Gravely to incorporate such design changes into previously manufactured products, nor shall such changes be construed as an admission
that previous designs were defective.
LIMITATION OF REMEDY AND DAMAGES
Gravely’s liability under this express warranty, and under any implied
warranty that may exist, is limited to repair or replacement of any
defective part. In no event shall Gravely be liable for incidental,
special, or consequential damages (including lost profits). This
warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other
rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the
exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, or limitations
on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations
and exclusions may not apply to you.
DISCLAIMER OF FURTHER WARRANTY
Gravely makes no warranty other than what is
expressly made in this warranty. If the law of your
state provides that an implied warranty of
merchantability, or an implied warranty of fitness
for a particular purpose, applies to Gravely, any
such implied warranty is limited to the duration of
this express warranty.
