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:
o 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.

SAFETYGLASSES
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 repairs. We recommend
standard safety glasses or a
wide vision safety mask worn over spectacles.
HOW TO USE YOUR TRACTOR
NOTE:
TO SET PARKmNG
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
opping tractor on grass areas.
CAUTmON: Always stop tractor completely, as described above, before leaving
the operator's
position.
BRAKE
Your tractor is equipped with an operator
presence sensing
switch. When engine
is running, any attempt by the operator
to leave the seat without first setting the
parking brake will shut off the engine.
1. Depress clutch/brake
pedal all the way
down and hold.
2. Pull parking brake lever up and release
pressure from clutch/brake
pedal.
Pedal should remain in brake position.
Make sure parking brake will hold tractor secure.

CUTTmNG
HEmGHT
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 1-1,/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.
-
Move throttle control to slow position.
NOTE: Failure to move throttle control to
slow position to allow engine to idle before
stopping may cause engine to "backfire".
Turn ignition key to "STOP" position and
remove key. Always remove key when
leaving tractor to prevent unauthorized
use.
Never use choke to stop engine.
mMPORTANT:
Leaving the ignition switch in
any position other than "STOP" will cause
the battery to discharge and go dead.
FORWARD
The direction and speed of movement
is
controlled
by the motion control lever.
1. Start tractor with motion control lever in
neutral (N) position.
2. Release parking brake.
3. Slowly move motion control lever to
desired position.
To stop ground drive, depress clutch/
brake pedal all the way down.
Move motion control lever to neutral (N)
position.
mMPORTANT: The motion control lever
does not return to neutral (N) position
when the clutch/brake
pedal is depressed.

TO TRANSPORT
When pushing or towing your tractor, be
sure to disengage transmission by placing
freewheel control in freewheeling position.
Freewheel control is located at the rear
drawbar of tractor.
1. Raise attachment lift to highest position
with attachment lift control.
2. Pull freewheel control out and down
into the slot and release so it is held in
the disengaged position.

MOWER
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. Start mower blades by engaging attachment
clutch control.
TO STOP MOWER BLADES disengage attachment

Do not operate the mower without either the entire grass catcher, on mowers
so equipped, or the deflector shield in place.

BEFORE
CHECK
STARTING
THE
ENGmNE
ENGmNE OraL LEVEL
The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
1. Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
2. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick
and wipe
clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw
cap tight, wait for a few seconds, remove and read oil level. If necessary,
add oil until "FULL:' mark on dipstick is
reached.
Do not overfill.
* For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See the
oil viscosity chart in the Maintenance
section of this manual).
To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
ADD GASOUNE
* Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler neck.
Do not overfill. Use fresh, clean, regular
unleaded gasoline with a minimum of
87 octane. (Use of leaded gasoline will
increase carbon and lead oxide deposits
and reduce valve life). Do not mix oil
with gasoline. Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30 days to
assure fuel freshness.
_i_,CAUTmON: Wipe off any spilled oil or
fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline
near an open flame.
mMPORTANT: When operating in temperatures below 32°F(0°C),
use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
cold weather starting.
CAUTmON: 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 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.

* If grass is extremely tall, 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.

TO CHECK AND ADJUST BRAKE
Your tractor is equipped with an adjustable
brake system which is mounted on the
