The average lawn should be cut to approximately 2-1/2
inches during the cool season and to over 3 inches
dunng hot months. For healthier and better looking
lawns, mow often and after moderate growth.

For cold weather operation you should change oil for
easier starting (See "OIL VISCOSITY CHART" in the
Customer Responsibilities section of this manual).
•
To change engine oil, see the Customer Responsibilities section in this manual
ADD GASOLINE
=
Fill fuel tank,, Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded
gasoline. (Use of leaded gasoline will increase carbon

TO OPERATE
WARNING:
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 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,
ON HILLS
CAUTION:
Do not drive up or down
hills with slopes greater than 15 ° and
do not drive across any Slope.
°
Choose the slowest speed before starting up or down
hills.

Avoid stopping or changing speed on hills
°
If slowing is necessary, move throttle control lever to

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 then] in size so that as
they fall 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 will provide the best recutting action of the
blades_
NOTE: If at a high altitude (above 3000 feet) or in cold
temperatures (below 32°F), the carburetor fuel mixture
may need to be adjusted for best engine performance_ See
"TO ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual..
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 time the grass has dried and the newly cut area
will not be exposed to the direct sun°
MOWUNGTIPS
°
Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing is
attached to tractor.
=
o
Mower should be properly leveled for best mowing
performance° See "TO LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in
the Service and Adjustments section of this manual
The left hand side of mower should be used for trimming.
For best results, adjust the mowercutting height so that
the mower cuts off only the top one-third of the grass
blades (See Fig. 12)_ 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,
mew across or perpend!cular to the first cut path°
o
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.
o
=
Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area
that has been cut. Have the cut area to the right of the
machine_ This will result in a more even distribution of
clippings and more uniform cutting_
°
When mowing large areas, start by turning tb the right
so that clippings will discharge away from shrubs,
fences, driveways, etc, After one ortwo rounds, mow
in the opposite direction making left hand turns until
finished (See Fig. 11).
o
If grass is extremely tail, it should be mowed twice to
reduce toad and possible fire hazard from dried clippings. Make first cut relatively high; the second to the
desired heighL
°
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 full throttle when mowing to
assure better mowing performance and proper discharge of material Regulate ground speed by selecting a low 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..

BRAKE OPERATION
If tractor requires more than six (6) feet stopping distance
at high speed in highest gear, then brake must be adjusted.
(See %'O ADJUST BRAKE" in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual).
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.
NOTE: Do not use a nail for' balancing blade. The lobes of
the center hole may appear to be centered, but are not.
TIRES
•
Maintain proper air pressure in ati tires (See "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS"
