MAN0826 (8/31/2010)
SAFETY RULES
ATTENTION! BECOME ALERT! YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED!
Safety is a primary concern in the design and
manufacture of our products. Unfortunately, our
efforts to provide safe equipment can be wiped
out by an operator’s single careless act.
In addition to the design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are dependent upon the awareness, concern, judgement, and proper training of
personnel involved in the operation, transport,
maintenance, and storage of equipment.
It has been said, “The best safety device is an
informed, careful operator.” We ask you to be
that kind of operator.
TRAINING
 Safety instructions are important! Read all
attachment and power unit manuals; follow all
safety rules and safety decal information. (Replacement manuals and safety decals are available from
your dealer. To locate your nearest dealer, check
the Dealer Locator at www.WoodsEquipment.com,
or in the United States and Canada call 1-800-3196637.) Failure to follow instructions or safety rules
can result in serious injury or death.
 If you do not understand any part of this manual
and need assistance, see your dealer.
 Know your controls and how to stop engine and
attachment quickly in an emergency.
 Operators must be instructed in and be capable
of the safe operation of the equipment, its attachments, and all controls. Do not allow anyone to
operate this equipment without proper instructions.
 Keep hands and body away from pressurized
lines. Use paper or cardboard, not hands or other
body parts to check for leaks. Wear safety goggles.
Hydraulic fluid under pressure can easily penetrate
skin and will cause serious injury or death.
 Make sure that all operating and service personnel know that if hydraulic fluid penetrates skin, it
must be surgically removed as soon as possible by
a doctor familiar with this form of injury or gangrene, serious injury, or death will result. CONTACT A P HYS ICIA N IM ME DIATE LY IF FLU ID
ENTERS SKIN OR EYES. DO NOT DELAY.
 Never allow children or untrained persons to
operate equipment.
TBW Safety Rules (Rev. 12/5/2008)
PREPARATION
 Check that all hardware is properly installed.
Always tighten to torque chart specifications
unless instructed otherwise in this manual.
 Air in hydraulic systems can cause erratic operation and allows loads or equipment components
to drop unexpectedly. When connecting equipment
or hoses or performing any hydraulic maintenance,
purge any air in hydraulic system by operating all
hydraulic functions several times. Do this before
p ut t i ng i n t o s e r v i c e o r a l l o w i n g a n y o n e t o
approach the equipment.
 Route hydraulic hoses carefully to prevent damage. Hoses must not be twisted, bent sharply,
kinked, frayed, pinched, or come into contact with
any moving parts. Operate moveable components
through full operational range to check clearances.
Replace any damaged hose immediately.
 Make sure all hydraulic hoses, fittings, and
valves are in good condition and not leaking before
starting power unit or using equipment. Check and
route hoses carefully to prevent damage. Hoses
must not be twisted, bent sharply, kinked, frayed,
pinched, or come into contact with any moving
parts. Operate moveable components through full
operational range to check clearances. Replace
any damaged hoses immediately.
 Always wear relatively tight and belted clothing
to avoid getting caught in moving parts. Wear
sturdy, rough-soled work shoes and protective
equipment for eyes, hair, hands, hearing, and head;
and respirator or filter mask where appropriate.
 When attaching a pull-type unit to the tractor
drawbar, always use a high-strength drawbar pin.
The drawbar pin must have a device that will lock it
into position. Secure safety chain to attachment
and tractor.
 Make sure attachment is properly secured,
adjusted, and in good operating condition.
 Make sure spring-activated locking pin or collar
slides freely and is seated firmly in tractor PTO
spline groove.
 Make sure driveline guard tether chains are
attached to the tractor and equipment as shown in
the pamphlet that accompanies the driveline.
Replace if damaged or broken. Check that driveline
guards rotate freely on driveline before putting
equipment into service.

(Safety Rules continued from previous page)
 Before starting power unit, check all equipment
driveline guards for damage. Replace any damaged
guards. Make sure all guards rotate freely on all
drivelines. If guards do not rotate freely on drivelines, repair and replace bearings before putting
equipment into service.
 Power unit must be equipped with ROPS or
ROPS cab and seat belt. Keep seat belt securely
fastened. Falling off power unit can result in death
from being run over or crushed. Keep foldable
ROPS system in “locked up” position at all times.
 Inspect chain shielding

before
each
use.
 Remove accumulated debris from this equipment, power unit, and engine to avoid fire hazard.
 Make sure all safety decals are installed.
Replace if damaged. (See Safety Decals section for
location.)
 Make sure shields and guards are properly
installed and in good condition. Replace if damaged.
 A minimum 20% of tractor and equipment
weight must be on the tractor front wheels when
attachments are in transport position. Without this
weight, front tractor wheels could raise up resulting in loss of steering. The weight may be attained
with front wheel weights, ballast in tires or front
tractor weights. Weigh the tractor and equipment.
Do not estimate.
 Inspect and clear area of stones, branches, or
other hard objects that might be thrown, causing
injury or damage.
 Never attach the mower release rope to the
operator, the operator's clothing, or the tractor
seat.
 Make test turns, both left and right. Check that
both the hydraulic hose and the mower transport
lock release rope do not become taut or caught on
any parts of the tractor or mower.
TRANSPORTATION
 The maximum transport speed for towed and
semi-mounted machines is 20 mph (32 km/h).
Regardless of the maximum speed capability of the
towing tractor, do not exceed the implement’s max-
6 Safety
imum transport speed. Doing so could result in:
• Loss of control of the implement and tractor
• Reduced or no ability to stop during braking
• Implement tire failure
• Damage to the implement or its components.
 Use additional caution and reduce speed when
under adverse surface conditions, turning, or on
inclines.
 Never tow this implement with a motor vehicle.
 Always raise unit and install transport locks
before transporting. Leak down or failure of
mechanical or hydraulic system can cause equipment to drop.
 Always comply with all state and local lighting
and marking requirements.
 Never allow riders on power unit or attachment.
 Do not operate PTO during transport.
 Do not operate or transport equipment while
under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
OPERATION
 Only engage power when equipment is at
ground operating level. Always disengage power
when equipment is raised off the ground.
 Do not allow bystanders in the area when operating, attaching, removing, assembling, or servicing equipment.
 Never walk, stand, or place yourself or others
under a raised wing or in the path of a lowering
wing. Hydraulic system leak-down, hydraulic system failures, mechanical failures, or movement of
control levers can cause wings to drop unexpectedly and cause severe injury or death.
 Full chain shielding must be installed when
operating in populated areas or other areas where
thrown objects could injure people or damage
property.
• If this machine is not equipped with full chain
shielding, operation must be stopped when anyone comes within 300 feet (92 m).
• This shielding is designed to reduce the risk
of thrown objects. The mower deck and protective devices cannot prevent all objects from
escaping the blade enclosure in every mowing
condition. It is possible for objects to ricochet
and escape, traveling as much as 300 feet (92 m).
 Never direct discharge toward people, animals,
or property.
TBW Safety Rules (Rev.12/5/2008)
SAFETY RULES
ATTENTION! BECOME ALERT! YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED!
 Do not operate or transport equipment while
under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
 Operate only in daylight or good artificial light.
 Keep hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from
equipment while engine is running. Stay clear of all
moving parts.
 If equipped with driveline guard tether chains,
make sure they are attached to the tractor and
equipment as shown in the pamphlet that accompanies the driveline. Replace if damaged or broken.
Check that driveline guards rotate freely on driveline before putting equipment into service.
 Never allow riders on power unit or attachment.
 Power unit must be equipped with ROPS or
ROPS cab and seat belt. Keep seat belt securely
fastened. Falling off power unit can result in death
from being run over or crushed. Keep foldable

controls or starting engine. Securely fasten seat
belt, place transmission in neutral, engage brake,
and ensure all other controls are disengaged
before starting power unit engine.
 Operate tractor PTO at 540 RPM. Do not exceed.
 Connect PTO driveline directly to power unit
PTO shaft. Never use adapter sleeves or adapter
shafts. Adapters can cause driveline failures due to
incorrect spline or incorrect operating length and
can result in personal injury or death.
 Do not operate mowers on terrain that raises
mowers beyond 25 degrees. Exceeding this design
limit will result in U-joint “knocking noise” and
potential driveline failure and could cause driveline
to pull apart.
 Look down and to the rear and make sure area
is clear before operating in reverse.
 Do not operate or transport on steep slopes.
 Do not stop, start, or change directions suddenly on slopes.
 Use extreme care and reduce ground speed on
slopes and rough terrain.

trailer is level when attached to the tractor. Pin the
mower to the tractor.
NOTE: When attaching mower to tractor drawbar,
make sure the correct drawbar pin is used. A Category
1 drawbar is 1"; Category 2 is 1.25". Failure to use the
correct pin size will result in premature wear of hitch
and drawbar hole. If the hitch on the mower doesn't
match your tractor drawbar, contact your dealer to
order the correct size hitch for your tractor. If mower
will be attached to tractor for a long period of time,
secure hitch to drawbar using a bolt, locknut, and
washers assembled tightly. This will reduce wear on
drawbar and hitch.
A 1-3/8" 6B spline PTO shaft is used for connecting the
mower to the tractor. This mower is designed for 540
rpm PTO only.
Operation 13
The PTO drive shaft is intended for use with tractors
that have 14 inches between the end of the PTO shaft
and the tractor's drawbar hitch pin hole.
3. Attach the safety chain to the tractor as shown in
Figure 1.
4. Attach the mower drive shaft to tractor PTO. Make
sure the lock collar engages securely.
5. Attach the end of the mower’s transport lock
release rope to a location on the tractor within easy
reach of the operator.
NOTE: When routing the rope, do not route through the
hydraulic hose guide and do not allow rope slack to
drop between the driveline shields and the gearbox
rotating shafts.
CV Driveline Turning Limits
NOTICE
■
Do not exceed turning angle of 80 degrees at
the head of the Constant Velocity (CV) driveline or
damage will occur.
Check for excessive turn angle:
1. Disconnect the driveline from the tractor.
2. Start engine and turn as far right or left as possible.
3. Shut off the engine and connect the CV driveline to
the tractor. If it cannot be connected, the turn angle
is too severe.
4. Restart the tractor and straighten the angle slightly.
5. Shut off the engine and connect the CV driveline to
tractor.
6. Repeat the process until the driveline can be
connected. The point at which the driveline can be
connected is the maximum turn that can be made.
Leveling Mower
Figure 1. Tow Chain Installation
Attaching Hydraulic Hoses
NOTE: To ensure satisfactory mower performance, the
trailer frame and decks must be leveled before operating the mower. During normal operation, the mower
should be leveled twice each season. The mower must
be leveled each time a tractor with a different drawbar
height is used.
Follow this procedure to level the mower for operation:
1. Attach the hydraulic hose from the mower to the
tractor.
1. Park the tractor and mower on a flat level surface
with the decks in mowing position.
2. Route the hose through the hose guide of the
trailer frame and be sure the hose can slide freely
in the guide. Do not allow hose slack to drag on the
ground or become caught on tractor protrusions.
2. Inflate all tires to the recommended pressure: 70
psi for trailer tires and 30 psi for deck gauge tires.
3. From the operator position, start the tractor, raise
and lower the wings, and the rear deck several
times. This will purge the hydraulic cylinders and
hoses of trapped air.
Interference Check
1. Be sure that the tractor 3-point arms do not
interfere with hydraulic hoses, driveline or mower
frame.
2. Check for straight ahead operation and full turning
angles. If there is any interference, remove the 3point arms.
NOTE: Contact between 3-point arms and mower
can cause damage, especially when turning.
14 Operation
3. Level the trailer frame by adjusting the hitch. (See
Figure 2.)
4. Remove the hitch clevis from the trailer frame and
pin to the tractor drawbar.
5. Use the parking jack to adjust the trailer frame to
the level position. Align the nearest hitch
adjustment hole in the hitch clevis with a hole in the
trailer frame.
6. Tighten the hardware to specifications in the Bolt
Torque Chart on page 67. Readjust the level of the
frame each time the drawbar height changes.
7. Attach the mower and the driveline to the tractor.
Level the driveline by placing a bolt through the
carrier bearing and the driveline height adjustment
holes.

CUTTING HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
WARNING
 Keep all persons away from operator control
area while performing adjustments, service, or
maintenance.
 Before working underneath, carefully read Operator’s Manual instructions, disconnect driveline,
raise mower, securely block up all corners with
jackstands, and check stability. Secure blocking
prevents equipment from dropping due to hydraulic leak down, hydraulic system failures, or
mechanical component failures.
NOTICE
■
Avoid low cutting heights. Striking the ground
with blades produces one of the most damaging
shock loads a mower can encounter. Allowing
blades to contact ground repeatedly will cause
damage to mower and drive.
1. Level mower from side to side. Check by
measuring from mower frame to the ground at
each deck rail.
2. Verify that the same amount of spacers are under
all caster arms.
3. Loosen cap screws that attach caster arm
assembly to deck.

 Do not operate PTO during transport.
 Never direct discharge toward people, animals,
or property.
 Keep hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from
equipment while engine is running. Stay clear of all
moving parts.
CAUTION
 Stop power unit and implement immediately
upon striking an obstruction. Dismount power unit,
using proper procedure. Inspect and repair any
damage before resuming operation.
 Always sit in power unit seat when operating
controls or starting engine. Securely fasten seat
belt, place transmission in neutral, engage brake,
and ensure all other controls are disengaged
before starting power unit engine.
Figure 4. Lock Pin Installed (Right Wing)
NOTICE
■
Stopping the mower with belt in contact with a
very hot pulley will bake and ruin belt.
Power for operating the mower is supplied from the
tractor PTO. Refer to your tractor manual for instructions on engaging and disengaging the PTO.
Operate PTO at 540 rpm. Know how to stop tractor and
mower quickly in case of an emergency.
If the mower becomes plugged causing the belt to slip
for over two seconds, follow these steps:
1. Raise mower just enough to clear accumulated
material.
2. Continue running at least two minutes, allowing
pulleys to cool.
To reduce the risk of thrown objects, do not raise the
mower higher than necessary
Figure 5. Lock Pin Storage Installed
(Rear Deck)
To lower the wings and the rear deck:
1. Remove the locking pins and store in holes
provided.
2. Slightly raise the wings and rear deck to take
pressure off the locking mechanisms.
16 Operation
OPERATING
WARNING
 Do not operate mowers on terrain that raises
mowers beyond 25 degrees. Exceeding this design
limit will result in U-joint “knocking noise” and
potential driveline failure and could cause driveline
to pull apart.
MAN0826 (8/31/2010)
When engaging the PTO, engine rpm should always be
low. Once engaged and ready for mowing, increase
PTO speed to 540 rpm and maintain speed throughout
the cutting operation.
Mower vibration tends to loosen bolts. All hardware
should be checked regularly to maintain proper torque.
Each time the mower is used, check all hardware to be
sure it is secure. Recommended torque values can be
found on page 67.
The condition of the terrain will determine cutting
results. For best results, mower blades should be kept
sharp at all times and the platform as level as possible.
When mower blades show excessive wear, they
should be replaced.
Operating Technique
CAUTION
 Stop power unit and implement immediately
upon striking an obstruction. Dismount power unit,
using proper procedure. Inspect and repair any
damage before resuming operation.
Proper ground speed will depend upon the terrain, the
height, type, and density of material to be cut.
Normally, ground speed will range from two to five
mph. Tall dense material should be cut at a low speed;
thin medium-height material can be cut at a faster
ground speed.
Always operate tractor PTO at 540 rpm to maintain
proper blade speed and produce a clean cut.
Under certain conditions, tractor tires may roll some
grass down and prevent it from being cut at the same
height as the surrounding area. When this occurs,
reduce your ground speed, but maintain PTO at 540
rpm. The lower ground speed will permit grass to partially rebound.
In general, lower cutting heights give a more even cut
with less tendency to leave tire tracks. However, it is
better to cut grass frequently rather than too short.
Short grass deteriorates rapidly in hot weather and
invites weed growth during growing seasons. Follow
local recommendations for the suitable cutting height in
your area.
Remember, sharp blades produce cleaner cuts and
require less power.
Analyze area to be cut to determine the best procedure. Consider height and type of grass and terrain
type: hilly, level, or rough.
Uneven Terrain
WARNING
 Do not operate or transport on steep slopes.
 Do not stop, start, or change directions suddenly on slopes.
 Use extreme care and reduce ground speed on
slopes and rough terrain.
 Watch for hidden hazards on the terrain during
operation.
In extremely uneven terrain, rear wheel weights, front
tractor weights and/or front tire ballast should be used
to improve stability.
Pass diagonally through sharp dips and avoid sharp
drops to prevent “hanging up” the tractor and the
mower. Practice will improve your skills in maneuvering
rough terrain.
Avoid sudden starts and stops when traveling up or
down hill.
Always mow down slopes, never up or across the face.
Avoid operating on steep slopes.
Slow down on sharp turns and slopes to prevent tipping and losing control.
REMOVING MOWER FROM TRACTOR
1. Park the unit on a level, hard surface with the
wings and rear deck fully lowered to the ground.
2. Block the wheels to keep the mower from rolling
when unhitched from tractor.
3. Attach the jack to the side of the tongue and adjust
the height to take the weight off the tractor hitch.
Operating Tips
WARNING
 Inspect and clear area of stones, branches, or
other hard objects that might be thrown, causing
injury or damage.
MAN0826 (8/31/2010)
Extremely tall material should be cut twice. Set mower
at a higher cutting height for the first pass. Then cut at
desired height 90 degrees to the first pass.
4. Disconnect the PTO shaft and the hydraulic hose,
untie the mower transport lock release rope from
the tractor, and remove the hitch pin.
5. Store the PTO shaft end and the hydraulic hose
couplings off the ground and keep them clean.

OWNER SERVICE
The information in this section is written for operators
who possess basic mechanical skills. If you need help,
your dealer has trained service technicians available.
For your protection, read and follow the safety information in this manual
DANGER
 Full chain shielding must be installed when
operating in populated areas or other areas where
thrown objects could injure people or damage
property.
• If this machine is not equipped with full chain
shielding, operation must be stopped when anyone comes within 300 feet (92 m).
• This shielding is designed to reduce the risk
of thrown objects. The mower deck and protective devices cannot prevent all objects from
escaping the blade enclosure in every mowing
condition. It is possible for objects to ricochet
and escape, traveling as much as 300 feet (92 m).
CAUTION
 Always wear relatively tight and belted clothing
to avoid getting caught in moving parts. Wear
sturdy, rough-soled work shoes and protective
equipment for eyes, hair, hands, hearing, and head;
and respirator or filter mask where appropriate.
BLOCKING METHOD
The only approved blocking devices for this mower are
jack stands with a load rating of 1,000 pounds or more.
Twelve jack stands, located as shown in Figure 6, must
be installed before working underneath this unit.
WARNING
 Keep hands and body away from pressurized
lines. Use paper or cardboard, not hands or other
body parts to check for leaks. Wear safety goggles.
Hydraulic fluid under pressure can easily penetrate
skin and will cause serious injury or death.
 Make sure that all operating and service personnel know that if hydraulic fluid penetrates skin, it
must be surgically removed as soon as possible by
a doctor familiar with this form of injury or gangrene, serious injury, or death will result. CONTACT A PHYSICIA N IM MEDIATELY IF FLU ID
ENTERS SKIN OR EYES. DO NOT DELAY.
 Keep all persons away from operator control
area while performing adjustments, service, or
maintenance.
 Do not disconnect hydraulic lines until engine is
stopped, power unit is properly secured, equipment and all components are lowered to the
ground, and system pressure is released by operating all valve control levers.
 Before dismounting power unit or performing
any service or maintenance, follow these steps:
disengage power to equipment, lower the 3-point
hitch and all raised components to the ground,
operate valve levers to release any hydraulic pressure, set parking brake, stop engine, remove key,
and unfasten seat belt.
MAN0826 (8/31/2010)
Figure 6. Jackstand Placement
Do not work underneath mower unless it is properly
attached to tractor and blocked securely. When properly attached, the unit will be anchored to minimize
front to rear movement.
Before blocking, be sure that the mower is securely
attached to the tractor. Lower mower units to the
ground. Raise the mower units as needed for working
room and securely block them. Set tractor brakes, turn
engine off and remove key, then disconnect mower
driveline.
When blocking, you must consider the overall stability
of the unit. Just placing jackstands under the unit will
not ensure your safety. The working surface must be
level and solid to support the loaded weight of the jack
stands. Ensure that jackstands are stable at both top
and bottom. Before working under any portion of the
mower, test the stability of your blocking with the full
weight of the mower units lowered onto the jackstands.
Owner Service 19
LUBRICATION INFORMATION
Be sure to clean fittings thoroughly before attaching
grease gun. When applied according to the lubrication
chart, one good pump of most guns is sufficient. Use
SAE 90W gear lube in gearboxes.
CAUTION
 When lubricating telescoping PTO drives, keep
fingers out of shield access slots to prevent injury.
Do not let excess grease collect on or around parts,
particularly when operating in sandy areas.
Figure 7 and Figure 8 shows lubrication points. The
accompanying charts give the frequency of lubrication
in operating hours, based on normal operating conditions. Severe or unusual conditions may require more
frequent lubrication.
Daily lubrication of PTO slip joints is necessary. Failure
to maintain proper lubrication can result in damage to
U-joints, gearboxes and/or drive shafts. Raise or lower
mower until grease fittings in PTO shields are exposed.
Insert grease gun through slots and apply grease to all
sides of shafts. Always stand clear of mower and wing
arm mechanism to avoid being pinched or crushed
should the mower or wing suddenly lower.
Raise and lower mower after applying grease so that it
spreads over the slip joint working area.
Use a lithium grease of #2 consistency with a MOLY
(molybdenum disulfide) additive for all locations unless
otherwise noted.

Gearbox Repair
Read this entire section before starting any repair.
Many steps are dependent on each other.
Fill gearbox with SAE 80W or 90W gear lube until it
runs out the side level plug.
Repair to this gearbox is limited to replacing bearings,
seals, and gaskets. Replacing gears, shafts, and a
housing is not cost effective. It is more economical to
purchase a complete gearbox if repair to anything other
than replacement of bearings, seals or gaskets is
required.
Inspect gearbox for leakage and bad bearings.
Leakage is a very serious problem and must be corrected immediately.
Bearing failure is indicated by excessive noise and
side-to-side or end play in gear shafts.
Seal Replacement
Recommended sealant for gearbox repair is Permatex
Aviation 3D Form-A-Gasket or equivalent.
Dealer Service 29
Leakage can occur at the vertical or horizontal gaskets
and shaft seals.
Leakage at the horizontal gasket or seal can be
repaired without removing the gearbox from the cutter.
Seal Installation
NOTE: Proper seal installation is important. An improperly installed seal will leak.
1. Clean area in housing where seal outer diameter
(OD) seats. Apply a thin coat of Permatex.
2. Inspect area of shaft where seal seats. Remove
any burrs or nicks with an emery cloth.
3. Lubricate gear shaft and seal lips.
4. Place seal squarely on housing, spring-loaded lip
toward housing. Select a piece of pipe or tubing
with an OD that will sit on the outside edge of the
seal but will clear the housing. Tubing with an OD
that is too small will bow seal cage and ruin seal.
5. Carefully press seal into housing,
distortion to the metal seal cage.

increased safety hazards that exist when safety
rules are not followed.

Instruct that before going underneath to disconnect the driveline, securely block up all corners
with jackstands and to follow all instructions in
BLOCKING METHOD, page 19 of the operator’s
manual. Explain that blocking up prevents equipment dropping from hydraulic leak down, hydraulic system failures or mechanical component
failures.
___ Point out all guards and shields. Explain their
importance and the safety hazards that exist
when not kept in place and in good condition.
