the machine.
II. SLOPE
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 it.
• Clear the area of objects such as rocks,
toys, wire, etc., which could be picked
up and thrown by the blade.
• Be sure the area is clear of other people
before mowing. Stop machine if anyone
enters the area.

DO:
• Mow up and down slopes, not across.
• Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
• Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven terrain could overturn the machine.
Tall grass can hide obstacles.
• Use slow speed. Choose a low gear
so that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
• Follow the manufacturer's
recommendations 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.
• Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If
tires lose traction,
disengage
the blades
and proceed slowly straight down the
slope.
DO NOT:
•
Do not turn on slopes unless necessary, and then, turn slowly and gradually
downhill, if possible.
• Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches,
or embankments.
The 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.
III. 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. Neverassume 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.
• Be alert and turn machine off if children
enter the area.
• Before and when backing, look behind
and down for small children.
• Never carry children.
They may fall off
and be seriously injured or interfere with
safe machine operation.
• Never allow children to operate the
machine.
• Use extra care when approaching
blind
corners, shrubs, trees, or other objects
that may obscure vision.
IV. SERVICE
• Use extra care in handling gasoline and
other fuels. They are flammable
and
vapors are explosive.
- Use only an approved container.
- Never remove gas cap or add fuel
with the engine running. Allow
engine to cool before refueling. Do

if you
strike an object. Repair, if necessary,
before restarting.
• Never make adjustments
or repairs with
the engine running.

1-1/2" to 4-1/2". 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.
TO OPERATE
Your tractor is equipped with an operator
presence sensing switch. Any attempt
by the operator to leave the seat with the
engine running and the attachment
clutch
engaged will shut off the engine. You must
remain fully and centrally positioned
in the
seat to prevent the engine from hesitating
or cutting off when operating your equipment on rough, rolling terrain or hills.
1. Select desired height of cut.
2. Lower mower with attachment
lift control.
• 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.

PRESENCE
TO SHARPEN
NOTE: We do not recommend
sharpening blade - but if you do, be sure the
blade is balanced.
Care should be taken to keep the blade
balanced.
An unbalanced
blade will cause
excessive vibration and eventual damage
to mower and engine.
• The blade can be sharpened
with a file
or on a grinding wheel. Do not attempt
to sharpen while on the mower.
• 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
balancer.)
NOTE: Do not use a nail for balancing
blade. The lobes of the center hole may
appear to be centered, but are not.
• Slide blade on to an unthreaded
portion
of the steel bolt or pin and hold the
bolt or pin parallel with the ground.
If
blade is balanced,
it should remain in a
horizontal position.
If either end of the
blade moves downward,
sharpen the
heavy end until the blade is balanced.
SYSTEM
Be sure operator presence and interlock
systems are working properly.
If your tractor does not function as described,
repair
the problem immediately.
• The engine should not start unless
the brake pedal is fully depressed
and
