MOWING
ADD GASOLINE
• Fill fuel tank, Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded gasoline
(Use of leaded gasoline will increase carbon and lead oxide deposits and reduce valve life)
IMPORTANT:
TIPS
o Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing is attached to unit
• Mower should be properly leveled for best mowing performance. See "TO LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in the
Service and Adjustments section of this manual
• Use the runner on the right hand side of mower as a guide.
The blade cuts approximately an inch outside the runner
(See FIG. 9).
• The left hand side of mower should be used for trimming
WHEN OPERATINGINTEMPERATURES
BELOW 32°F (0°C), USE FRESH CLEAN
WINTER GRADE GASOLINE TO HELP
INSURE
GOOD
COLD
WEATHER
START! NG.
WARNING'. Experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels
(called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract
moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids
during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an
engine while in storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel
system should be emptied before storage of 30 days or
longer. Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until
the fuel lines and carburetor are empty Use fresh fuel next
season, See Storage section of this manual for additional
information, Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur
= Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area that
has been cut Have the cut area to the right of the machine. This will result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting.
= When mowing large areas, start by turning to the right so
that clippings will discharge away from shrubs, fences,
driveways, etc After one ortwo rounds, mow in the opposite direction making left hand turns until finished (See
FIG 11).

FIG. 11
• Move throttle control to midway between "FAST" and
"SLOW" positions.
. Turn ignition key clockwise to "START" position and release key as soon as engine starts. Do not run starter
continuously for more than fifteen seconds per minute. If
engine does not start after several attempts, move throttle control to "FAST" position, wait a few minutes and try
again
. When engine starts, slowly push choke control in
o Move throttle control to "FAST" position.
• Allow engine to warm up for a few minutes before engaging clutch/brake pedal or attachment clutch switch.
° If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed twice to re_
duce load and possible fire hazard from dried clippings,
Make first cut relatively high, the second to the desired
height.
• Do not mow grass when it is wet. Wet grass will plug mower and leave undesirable clumps. AlIow grass to dry before mowing
• Always operate engine at full throttle when mowing to assure better mowing performance and proper discharge of
material
Regulate ground speed by selecting a tow
enough speed to give the mower cutting performance as
well as the quality of cut desired.
o When operating attachments, select a ground speed that
will suit the terrain and give best performance of the attachment being used
NOTE: If at a high altitude (above 3000 feet) or in cold temperatures (below 32°F or 0°C), the carburetor fuel mixture
may need to be adjusted for best engine performance. See

damage to mower and engine,
TIRES
• The blade can be sharpened with a file or on a grinding
wheel, Do not attempt to sharpen while on the mower
• To check blade balance, drive a nail into a beam or wall
Leave about one inch of the straight nait exposed, Place
center hole of blade over the head of the nail, tf blade is
balanced, it should remain in a horizontal position
If
either end of the blade moves downward, sharpen the
heavy end until the blade is balanced,
• Maintain proper air pressure in all tires (See "PRODUCT
SPECIFICATIONS" on page 3 of this manual),
• Keep tires free of gasoline, oil, or insect control chemicals
which can harm rubber,
• Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, sharp objects and other
hazards that may cause tire damage

adjustment, proceed as follows:
ACCELERATION
"
In general, turning the mixture screw In (clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel to the engine giving a leaner fuel/
air mixture. Turning the mixture screw out (counterclockwise) increases the supply of fuel to the engine giving a
richer fuel!air mixture.
IMPORTANT:
DAMAGE TO THE NEEDLES AND THE
SEATS IN CARBURETOR MAY RESULT
IF SCREW IS TURNED IN TOO TIGHTo
PRELIMINARY
SETTING -
•
