The cutting height range is approximately 1-1/2 to 4'L The heights are measured
from the ground to the blade tip with the
engine not running. These heights are
approximate and may vary depending
upon soil conditions, height of grass and
types of grass being mowed.
• The average lawn should be cut to
approximately
2-1/2 inches during the
cool season and to over 3 inches during
hot months
For healthier and better
looking lawns, mow often and after
moderate growth.
ENGINE
o Move throttle control to slow position°
NOTE: Failure to move throttle control to
slow position and allowing engine to idle
before stopping may cause engine to
"backfire",
o Turn ignition key to "OFF" position and

leaving tractor to prevent unauthorized
use.
° Never use choke to stop engine.

BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
° The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil
• Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground_
° Remove oil fill capldipstick and wipe
clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw
cap tight, wait for a few seconds,
remove and read oil level If necessary,
add oil until "FULL" mark on dipstick is
reached° Do not overfilL
o For cold "weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See "OIL
VISCOSITY
CHART" in the Maintenance section of this manual).
= To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual
ADD
GASOLINE
• Fill fuel tank. Use fresh, clean, regular
unleaded gasoline with a minimum of
87 octane. (Use of leaded gasoline will
increase carbon and lead oxide
deposits and reduce valve life). Do not
mix oil with gasoline. Purchase fuel in
quantities that can be used within 30
days to assure fuel freshness.
IIVlPORTANT: When operating in temperatures below 32°F(0°C), use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
cold weather starting.
,_WARNING:
Experience indicates that
alcohol blended fuels (called gasohot 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.

o When mowing large areas, start by turning to the right so that clippings will discharge away from shrubs, fences, driveways, etc. After one or two rounds,
mow in the opposite direction making
left hand turns until finished
,
MOWING TiPS
o Tire chains cannot be used when the
mower housing is attached to tractor.
o Mower should be properly leveled for
best mowing performance.
See 'qO
LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in the
Service and Adjustments
section of this
manual
o The left hand side of mower should be
used for' trimming°
o 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.
If grass is extremely tall, it should be
mowed twice to reduce load and possible fire hazard from dried clippings.
Make first cut relatively high; the second
to the desired height,
o Do not rnow grass when it is wet. Wet
grass will plug mower and leave undesirable clumps_ Allow grass to dry
before mowing.
o Always operate engine at full throttle
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance and proper-discharge of
material,, Regulate ground speed by selecting a low enough gear to give the
mower' the best 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.

TO ADJUST CARBURETOR
NOTE: The carburetor on this engine is
low emission,, tt is equipped with an idle
fuel adjusting needle with a limiter cap,
which allows some adjustment within the
limits allowed by the CapiDo n0t _attempt
to remove the limiter cap. The limiter cap
cannot be removed without breaking the
adjusting needle.
The carburetor has been preset at the factory and adjustment should not be necessary, However, minor adjustment may be
required to compensate for differences in
fuel, temperature, altitude or load. If the
carburetor does need adjustment, proceed
as follows:
,, While still holding throttle lever against
idle speed screw, turn idle mixture valve
full travel clockwise then counterclockwise until engine runs rough. Turn valve
....to a point midway between those two.
positions. Release throttle lever°
ACCELERATION
TEST
= Move throttle control lever from stow to
fast position. If engine hesitates or dies,
turn idle mixture valve out (counterclockwise) 1/8 turn. Repeat test and
continue to adjust, if necessary, until
engine accelerates smoothly.
High speed stop is factory adjusted. Do
not adjust--damage
may result.
IMPORTANT: Never tamper with the
engine governor, which is factory set for
proper engine speed, overspeeding the
engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous, if you think the
engine-governed high speed needs
adjusting, contact your nearest authorized
service center, which has proper equipment to make any necessary adjustments.
In general, turning idle mixture valve in
(clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel to
the engine giving a leaner fuel/air mixture.
Turning the idle mixture valve out
(counterclockwise) increases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a richer fuel/air
mixture.
IMPORTANT:
Damage to the needle valve
and the seat in carburetor may result if
screw is turned in too tight.

BATTERY
of
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative in minimizing the formation of
fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage
container. Always follow the mix ratio
found on stabilizer container. Run engine
at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer
to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer..
ENGINE OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil (See "ENGINE" in
the Maintenance section of this manual),
CYLINDER(S)
o Remove spark plug(s),,
o Pour one ounce of oil through spark
plug hole(s) into cylinder(s)_
° Turn ignition key to "START" position for
a few seconds to distribute oil.
° Fully charge the battery for storage.
o After a period of time in storage, battery
may require recharging.
o To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long periods of storage,
battery cables should be disconnected
and battery cleaned thoroughly (see
"TO CLEAN BATTERY AND TERMINALS" in the Maintenance section of
this manual).
° After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place cables where they cannot
come in contact with battery terminals.

FUEL SYSTEM
engine and exhaust
IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent
gum deposits from forming in essential
fuel system parts such as carburetor, fuel
filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage_
Also, 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,
27
areas are still warm.
