If battery is put into service after the “month & year” of the date on the battery, then it may need to be charged with a 12 volt battery charger for a minimum of 1 hour, but no more than 2 hours at a rate of 6 to 10 amps. Attach battery cable(s) to battery. ( if so equipped ) Red wire to positive (FIRST) and black wire to negative (SECOND). Reconnect spark plug wire. (Refer to Owner’s Manual p. 5) For proper operating procedures. 4 OPERATING YOUR TRAILCUTTER The operation of any mower can produce foreign objects to be thrown into the eyes, resulting in severe eye damage. Always wear certified safety glasses or wide-vision safety goggles over spectacles before staring any cutting machine and while operating such a machine. The operation of any cutter produces sound waves that are damaging to the human ear. Ear protection is recommended. CAUTION! Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert to the presence of children. Children are often attracted to the machine and the mowing activity. Never assume that children will remain where you last saw them. INTENDED USE The 44” Rugged Cut Trailcutter is designed to clear dense areas of grass and cut saplings up to 1-1/2 inch thick on meadows and small estates. It is not intended to create a finish cut on lawns.Your Trailcutter should be towed behind an ATV, golf cart, lawn tractor or other approved vehicle. It is not recommended for speeds exceeding 5 MPH. ATTACHING TRAILCUTTER TO TOW VEHICLE • Back vehicle up to desired towing position. • Offset the Trail Cutter to the side opposite the tow vehicle discharge (if any). This prevents the tow vehicle from throwing grass into Trailcutter engine. • Bolt swivel hitch (H10) to tow vehicle receiver. If tow vehicle has a ball hitch, the ball must be removed before swivel hitch can be fastened. • Attach tow hitch and the “L” hitch to the swivel hitch. (Ref Fig 2) The hitch pin (H11) should go completely through both the swivel and “L” hitches and clipped to prevent accidental separation. Check that all hardware is secure at both the tow vehicle and the Trailcutter. TRANSPORTING CUTTER • Stop Trailcutter. • Place Trailcutter deck in its highest position. • When transporting unattached from tow vehicle, remove spark plug wire and place it where it cannot contact the spark plug. STOPPING THE ENGINE • Make sure the tow vehicle parking brake is set • Disengage cutting Blades • Reduce engine to idle speed and allow engine to run momentarily for cooling • Turn the key to the off position 5 ENGAGING BLADES Note: Do not attempt to start the unit with the T-handle console in the ‘’ ENGAGED ’’ position. • Engage blades by pulling down the T-handle lever into the horizontal position. • Return lever to the vertical position to disengage blades. See detail on page 14 figure – 8 •The braking system is applied when the blades become disengaged. It is designed to bring the blades to a quick stop ( approximately 7 seconds. ) Each TrailCutter brake system has been set at the factory the consumer should not alter any part of the brake system. BREAKING IN YOUR CUTTER • Set the vehicle parking brake and chock the wheels to prevent accidental rolling. • While the engine is running, slowly, engage blade control. • In a safe environment, (i.e. no children or pets) allow blades to rotate and engine to idle for 5 minutes, breaking in the belt for a longer life. • Stop cutter. STARTING THE ENGINE See engine manufacturer’s recommendations for the type and amount of oil and fuel used. • Make sure the tow vehicle parking brake is set, mower is level, and blades are disengaged. Engine must be level to accurately check and fill oil. Do not overfill. • Check spark plug wire, oil, and fuel. • Check all electrical connections for build-up of debris. • Set engine idle to “CHOKE” position. • Turn key to the “RUN” position. • Pull rope with a single fluid motion. • (12V models only) Turn key to the “RUN” position, then to the “START” position. • Set engine idle at maximum RPM for best performance. • Allow engine to run a few moments before engaging blades. CAUTION: SHUT OFF THE CUTTER ENGINE AND REMOVE SPARK PLUG WIRE FROM SPARK PLUG BEFORE MAKING ANY ADJUSTMENTS TO THE CUTTER. FRONT TO BACK ADJUSTMENT For best cutting results, the cutter deck should be parallel to the ground. To check parallel adjustment, measure the distance from the bottom edge of the deck in both the front and rear of the deck. This adjustment is best done while the tow vehicle and Trailcutter are connected. • Remove bolt and nut from the “L” hitch (Ref Fig 2 ). • Raise or lower hitch section to obtain proper front to back adjustment. • Connect bolt and nut in “L” hitch securely, Then rotate nut counter- clockwise ½ turn,“L” hitch should pivot freely.Bolt must go completely through nut ( but do not over tighten). See figure – 2, page 11 6 CUTTER HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT • There is approximately 4 inches of height adjustment. • Rotate height adjust crank handle in a clockwise direction to lower the mower deck. counter-clockwise direction to lift the mower deck. • Dense areas of material should be cut twice. • Push handle down to lock height position. TOW HITCH OFFSET • When offsetting the cutter do so to the side opposite the discharge of the tow vehicle. • Swisher recommends if the tow vehicle is equipped with a mid-mount mower to overlap the cut approximately 6”. This may vary depending on mowing terrain, obstacles, and/or tow vehicle. Always keep safety the first priority. • Always keep the tow vehicle cutter raised higher than the Trailcutter • To change the offsetting position both ball-lock pins should be removed (Figure Two). The hitches will swivel around remaining bolts. Set hitches to desired positions and return ball-lock pins, making sure they go through the hitch tubing and the semi-circled hole patterned plates. STARTING TO CUT • Adjust the cutting height. • Double check vehicle to cutter attachment. • Start mower engine and set throttle to “FAST” for best cutting performance. • Slowly engage T-handle lever.see figure-8 page 14 • Carefully mount tow vehicle and start mowing at a slow travel speed. STOPPING THE CUTTING SESSION • Bring tow vehicle to a complete stop, set the parking brake and disengage blades. • Turn key switch to the “OFF” position. • Always remember to remove keys to avoid irresponsible usage. SUGGESTED CUTTING PRACTICES • Operate cutter engine at full throttle to assure the best cutting performance and maximum material discharge. • Allow wet grass to dry. Wet grass will clump and collect under the mowing deck. • Cutter should be started with tow vehicle in low gear and increased only as safe mowing conditions permit. Cutting speed should not exceed 5 MPH. • Cutting conditions and the types of grass will vary from place to place. You may find when cutting dense areas that the pressure of the wheel tracks may cause the grass to be pushed down and not effectively mowed. If this happens you may want to mow the area twice. Once with the cutter raised and the second cutting at the desired height. The second cutting should be at a right angle from the previous for best results. • Reducing the travel speed will help cut dense growth. This allows the blades the time necessary to make its initial cut, and regain momentum to continue cutting and discharging debris properly. The engine may stall if you are mowing too fast! • Do not attempt to cut areas that the tow vehicle cannot maneuver through and/or slopes that you do not feel comfortable riding. 7 CUTTER MAINTENANCE GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The warranty on this cutter does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence. To receive full value from the warranty, operator must maintain unit as instructed in this manual. Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to maintain your unit properly. BEFORE EACH SEASON A new spark plug and clean air filter assure proper air fuel mixture and help your engine run better and last longer. • Replace the spark plug. • Clean or replace the air filter. • Check blades and belts for wear. BEFORE EACH USE • Check engine oil level. (Do this twice to ensure an accurate reading.) • Check condition of air filter and clean or replace if necessary. • Check blade operation. • Check for loose fasteners. • Lubricate threads of adjustment rod P/N 4006 figure –4 page 12 DAILY MAINTENANCE Make sure all nuts and bolts are tight and cotter pins and retainer springs are secure. Keep blades sharp. Observe all safety precautions. BLADE CARE AND SERVICE For best results cutter blades must be kept sharp. The blades can be sharpened with a few strokes of a file or grinding wheel. Do Not attempt to sharpen while on the cutter. Important: Replace blades that have been damaged or deeply nicked. Important: Check blade and spindle hardware on a regular basis to make sure nuts are tight. CAUTION: DO NOT HANDLE CUTTER BLADES WITH BARE HANDS. CARELESS OR IMPROPER HANDLING MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY. 8 GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING The unit is not cutting level. • Level deck. Check air pressure of all tires; make sure they are equal. See tires for maximum inflation. • Without the engine running, make certain blades are installed identically. The engine will not start. • Disengage blades, turn key switch to the “OFF” position, check battery and all other electrical connections and inspect spark plug and wire. • Contact engine manufacturer or qualified mechanic. Engine runs poorly. • See engine manual. • Check the throttle adjuster. • Replace fuel, clean fuel filter and fuel line. • Check spark plug and gap. Cutter bounces excessively while towing. • Lower tire pressure. • Tow at a lower speed. IF PROBLEMS PERSIST HAVE A QUALIFIED MECHANIC SERVICE THE CUTTER. NEVER ATTEMPT TO MAKE AN ADJUSTMENT THAT YOU ARE NOT SURE IS CORRECT. DOING SO CAN CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS. 9 SAFETY AND OPERATIONAL DECALS Replace decal immediately if damaged.
