SLOPE OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to lossof-control and tipover accidents, which
can result in severe injury or death. All
slopes require extra caution. If you cannot
back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on
it, do not mow iL
DO:
° Mow up and down slopes, not across.
° Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
° Watch for holes, rats, or bumps. Uneven
terrain could overturn the machine. Tal!
grass can hide obstacles.
o Use stow speed. Choose a low gear so
that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
o Follow the manufacturer's
recommem
dations for wheel weights or counterweights to improve stability°
° Use extra care with grass catchers or
other attachments.
These can change
the stability of the machine.
Keep all movement
on the slopes slow
and gradual. Do not make sudden
changes in speed or direction.
o Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If
tires lose ti'action, disengage the blades
and proceed slowly straight down the
slope,
DO NOT:
° Do notturn on slopes unless necessary,
and then, turn slowly and gradually
downhill, if possible,
° Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or
embankments.
Tl_e mower could suddenly turn over if a wheel is over the
edge of a cliff or ditch_ or if an edge
caves in.
° Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced
traction could cause sliding.
° Do not try to stabilize the machine by
putting your foot on the ground.
, Do not use grass catcher on steep
slopes.
CHILDREN
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.
° Keep children out of the mowing area
and under the watchful care of another
responsible adult,
o Be alert and turn machine off if children
enter the area.
o Before and when backing, look behind
and down for small children,

The operation of any tractor can result in foreign objects thrown into the
eyes, which can result in severe eye damage. Always wear safety glasses or eye shields while operating your tractor or performing
any adjustments or repai_rs. We recommend
a wide vision safety mask over the
spectacles, or standard safety glasses.
NOTE: Under certain conditions when
tractor is standing idle with the engine running, hot engine exhaust gases may
cause "browning" of grass. To eliminate
this possibility, always stop engine when
stopping tractor on grass areas.
,ACAUTION.- Always stop tractor completely, as described above, before leaving
the operator's position; to empty grass
catcher, etc,
THROTTLE CONTROL
Always operate engine at full throttle.
o Operating engine at less than full throttle reduces the battery charging rate.
• Full throttle offers the best bagging and
mower performance.
TO MOVE FORWARD AND BACKWARD
The direction and speed of movement is
controlled by the gearshift lever.
° Start tractor with cfutch_rake pedal ;_;
depressed and gearshift lever in neutral
(N)position.
° Move gearshift lever to desired position.
o Slowly release clutch/brake pedal to
start movement.
IMPORTANT: Bring tractor to a complete
stop before shifting or changing gears.
Failure to do so will shorten the useful life
of your transaxle
TO ADJUST MOWER CUTTING HEIGHT
The position of the attachment lift lever
determines the cutting height.
° Grasp lift lever.
° Press plunger with thumb and move
lever to desired position.
The cutting height range is approximately
!-1]2 to 4". 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.
• For best cutting performance, grass
over 6 inches in height should be
mowed twice. Make the first cut relatively high; the second to desired height.
HOW TO USE YOUR TRACTOR
'(our tractor is equipped with an operator
presence sensing switch. When engine
is running, any attempt by the operator to
leave the seat without first settingthe
parking brake wilt shut off the engine.
TO SET PARKING BRAKE

° Drive so that clippings are discharged
onto the area that has been cut. Have
the cut area to the right of the machine.
This wil! result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting.

mow in the opposi!e direction making
left hand turns untd finished
o If grass is extremely tatt, 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.
_, Do not mow 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 ful! throttle
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance
and proper discharge of
material. Regulate ground speed by selecting a tow 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.

MULCHING
MOWING TIPS
IMPORTANT:
For best performance,
keep mower housing free of built-up grass
and trash, Clean after each use_ "
The special mulching blade will recur
the grass clippings many times and
reduce them in size so that as they fall
onto the lawn they wilt disperse into the
grass and not be noticed. Also, the
mulched grass will btodegrade quickly
to provide nutrients for the lawn.
Always mulch with your highest engine
(blade) speed as this wilt provide the
best recutting action of the blades.
o Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet.
Wet grass tends to form clumps and
interferes with the mulching action. The
best time to mow your lawn is the early
afternoon° At this t_Jmethe grass has
dried and the _newly cut area will not be
exposed to the direct sun,
o For best results, adjust the mower cutting height so that the mower cuts off
only the top one-third of the grass
blades. For extremely heavy mulching,
reduce your width of cut on each pass
and mow slowly.
• Certain types of grass and grass conditions may require that an area be
mulched a second time to completely
hide the clippings.
When doing a second cut, mow across or perpendicular
to
the first cut path.
= Change your cutting pattern from week
to week. Mow north to south one week
then change to east to west the next
week. This will help prevent matting
and graining of the lawn,

fuel adjusting needle with a limiter cap,
which allows some adjustment
within the
limits allowed by the cap. Do not 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 necessaryo 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 cloclwvise then counterclockwise until engine runs rough° Turn valve
to a point midway between those two
positions. Release throttle lever.
ACCELERATION
TEST
o Move throttle control lever from slow 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 resuit.
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 dange:ou&
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.

ENGINE
Immediatelyprepareyour tractorfor storage at the end ofthe season.orif the tractor will not be usedfor 30 days or more.
_IkCAUTION:Neverstorethe tractorwith
gasolinein the tank insidea building
wherefumesmay reachan open flameor
spark.Allowthe engineto coolbefore
storingin any enclosure,
FUEL SYSTEM
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. Acidic gas can damage the fuet system of an engine while in
storage.
o Drain the fuel tank.
• Start the engine and let it run untilthe
fuel lines and carburetor are empty.
• Never use engine or carburetor cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
° Use fresh' fuel next season.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative in minimizing the formation of
fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuet 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 carbure.tor if using fuel stabilizer.
ENGINE OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and reptace
with clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
TRACTOR

section of this manual.
o Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws
are securely fastened. Inspect moving
parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
= Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
BATTERY
• Fully charge the battery for storage.
o After a period of time in storage, battery
may require recharging.
, To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long periods of storage,
battery cables should be disconnected
and batter,.#cleaned thoroughly (see
"TO CLEAN BATTERY AND TERMINALS" in the Maintenance section of
this manual).
o After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place cables where they cannot
come in contact with battery terminals.
° If batter:/is removed from tractor for
storage, do not store battery directly on
concrete or damp surfaces.
CYLINDER(S)
Remo'_e spark plug(s).
° Pour one ounce of oil through spark
plug hole(s) Into cylinder(s).
o lure ignition key to =START" position for
a few seconds to distribute oil.
° Replace with new spark plug(s).
OTHER
° Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.
• Replace your gasoline can If it starts to
rust. Rust andlor dirt in your gasoline
will cause problems.
° If possible, store your tractor indoors
and cover it to give protection from dust
and dirt,
° Cover your tractor with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot
breathe, which allows condensation to
form and cause your tractor to rust,
