WARNING:
Experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (caUed 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 Instructions for additional information. Never use engine or
carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur,

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 recut the grass clippings many times and reduce them in size so that as
they fal! onto the lawn they will disperse into the grass
and not be noticed° Also, the mulched grass will
biodegrade quickly to provide nutrients for the lawn.
Always mulch with your highest engine (blade) speed
as this witl provide the best recutting action of the
blades°
*
Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet° Wet g rass tends
to form clumps and interferes with the mulching action.
The best time to mow your lawn is the early afternoon_
At this time the grass has dried and the newly cut area
will not be exposed to the direct sun.
.
For best results, adjust the mower cutting height so that
the mower cuts off only the top one-third of the grass
blades (See Fig, 11 ). For extremely heavy mulching,
reduce your width of cut and mow slowly.
o 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 Iawnr
TIPS
Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing is
attached to tractor.
Mower should be properly leveled for best mowing
it i
performance. See t_TOLEVELMOWERHOUSING
n
the Service and Adjustments section of this manual.
The left hand side of mower should be used for trimming
Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area
that has been cut. Have the cut area to the right of the
tractor. This will result in a more even distribution of
clippings and more uniform cutting,.
When mewing 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
t
in the opposite direction making left hand turns until
finished (See Fig.. 10 ).
If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed twice to
reduce load and possible fire hazard from dried clip=
pings. Make fh'st cut relatively high; the second to the
desired height.
Do not mow grass when it is weL Wet grass will plug
mewer and leave undesirable clumps. Allow 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 gear to give the mower cutting
performance as well as the quality of cut desired.
When operating attachments, select a ground speed
that will suit the terrain and give best performance of
the attachment being used.

RECOMMENDATIONS
CHART
The warranty on this tractor does not cover items that have
been subjected to operator abuse or negligence.
To
receive full value from the warranty, operator must maintain
tractor as instructed in this manual.
Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to
properly maintain your tractor.
All adjustments in the Service and Adjustments section of
this manual should be checked at least once each season°
*
ENGINE (_)
Once a year you should replace the spark plug, clean
or replace air filter, and check blades and belts for
wear. A new spark plug and clean air filter assure
proper air-fuel mixture and help your engine run better
and last longer.

BLADE
EDGE
TO SHARPEN
BLADE (See Fig. 13)
Care should be taken to keep the blade balanced.
An
unbalanced blade will cause excessive vibration and eventual damage to mower and engine.
CARE
For best results mower blades must be kept sharp, Replace bent or' damaged blades.
.
The blade can be sharpened with a file or on a grinding
wheel Do not attempt to sharpen while on the mower.
BLADE
°
To check blade balance, you will need a 5/8" diameter
steel bolt, pin, or a cone balancer. (When using a cone
balancer, follow the instructions supplied with batancer),
o
Slide blade on to an unthreaded portion of the steel bolt
or pin and hold the bolt or pin parallet with the ground.
If blade is balanced, it should remain in a horizontal
position, tf either' end of the blade moves downward,
sharpen the heavy end until the blade is balanced.
REMOVAL
(See Fig, 12)
o
Raise mower to highest position to allow access to
blades.
.,
Remove hex bolt, lock washerand flat washer securing
blade
o
Install new or resharpened blade with trailing edge up
towards deck as shown
,,
Reassemble hex bolt, lock washer and flat washer in
exact order as shown
NOTE: Do not use a nail for balancing blade. The lobes of
the center hole may appear to be centered, but are not.
= Tighten bolt securely (30-35 Ft. Lbs. torque)
IMPORTANT: BLADE BOLT IS GRADE 8 HEAT TREATED.

NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30 etc_)
improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils
will result in increased oil consumption when used above
32°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid
possible engine damage from running tow on oil.
Change the oil after every 50 hours of operation or at least
once a year if t he tractor is not used for 50 hours in one year°

HOUSING
ADJUSTMENT
To obtain the best cutting results, the mower housing
should be adjusted so that the front is approximately !/8" to
1/2" lower than the rear when the mower is in its highest
position°
Check adjustment on right side of tractor. Measure distance"D" directly in front and behind the mandrel at bottom
edge of mower housing as shown_
o Before making any necessary adjustments, check that
both front links are equal in length. Both links should be
approximately 10-3/8".
o If Iinks are not equal in length, adjust one link to same
length as other link.
,, To tower front of mower loosen nut "E" on both front
links an equal number of turns.
,, When distance "D" is t/8" to 1/2" lower at front than
rear, tighten nuts "F" against trunnion on both front
links.
° To raise front of mower, loosen nut"F'from trunnion on
both front links. Tighten nut "E" on both front links an
equal number of turns.
•
When distance "D" is t/8" to 1/2" lower at front than
rear, tighten n ut"F" against trunnion on both front links.
,,
Recheck side-to-side adjustment.
(See Figs° 20 and 21)
°
Raise mower to its highest position.
°
At the midpoint of both sides of mower, measure height
from bottom edge of mower to ground. Distance"A" on
both sides of mower should be the same or within 1/4"
of each other.
°
If adjustment is necessary, make adjustment on one
side of mower only.
o
To raise one side of mower, tighten lift link adjustment
nut on that side.
•
To lower one side of mower, loosen lift link adjustment
nut on that side°
NOTE: Each full turn of adjustment nut wil} change mower
height about 1/8".
•
Recheck measurements after adjusting.
