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 it.
DO:
• Mow up and down slopes, not across.
o 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.
o Use slow speed. Choose a low gear so
that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
o Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for wheel weights or counterweights to improve stability.
o Use extra care with grass catchers or
other attachments. These can change
the stability of the machine.
o 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 nottum on slopes unless necessary,
and then, tum 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.
o Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced
traction could cause sliding°
• 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

STOPPING
MOWER BLADES ° To stop mower blades, move attachment clutch lever to "DISENGAGED"
position.
GROUND DRIVEo To stop ground drive, depress
clutch/brake pedal into full "BRAKE"
position.
° Move gearshift lever to neutral (N) position.
ENGINE ° Move throttle control to slow position.
NOTE" Failure to move throttle control to
slow position and allowing engine to idle
before stopping may cause engine to
"backfire".
° Turn ignition key to "OFF" position and
remove key. Always remove key when
leaving tractor to prevent unauthorized
use.
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
pping tractor on grass areas.
CAUTION. 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.
° Operating engine at less than full throttle reduces the battery charging rate.
o 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.
o Start tractor with clutch/brake pedal
depressed and gearshift lever in neutral
(N) position.
o Move gearshift lever to desired position.
° 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.
o Grasp lift lever.
° Press plunger with thumb and move
lever to desired position.
The cutting height range is approximately 1-1/2 to 4'L 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.
o Never use choke to stop engine.
13
o 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.
TO OPERATE MOWER
o When pushing or towing your tractor, be
sure gearshift lever is in neutral (N)
position.
• Do not push or tow tractor at more than
five (5) MPH.
NOTE: To protect hood from damage
"(our 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.
o Select desired height of cut.
o Start mower blades by engaging attachment clutch control.
o TO STOP MOWER BLADES - disen-
whentransportingyourtractoron a truck

OPERATE ON HILLS
CAUTION: Do not drive up or down
hills with slopes greater than 15 ° and do
not drive across any slope. A slope guide
at the back of your manual is provided for
your use°
o Choose the slowest speed before starting up or down hills.
o Avoid stopping or changing speed on
hills.
° If slowing is necessary, move throttle
control lever to slower position.
o if stopping is absolutely necessary,
push clutch/brake pedal quickly to brake
position and engage parking brake.
• Move gearshift lever to 1st gear. Be
sure you have allowed room for tractor
to roll slightly as you restart movement.
• To restart movement, slowly release
parking brake and clutch/brake pedal.
° Make all turns slowly.
TO TRANSPORT
, Raise attachment lift to highest position
with attachment lift control.
° Fill fuel tank. 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.
IMPORTANT; When operating in temperatures below 32°F(0°C), use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
dWweatherstarting.
ARNING: 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.
14
Instructions for additional
information. Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or pernent damage may occur.
CAUTION: Fill to bottom of gas tank
filler neck. Do not overfill. Wipe off any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use
gasoline near an open flame.
TO START ENGINE
When starting the engine for the first time
or if the engine has run out of fuel, it will
take extra cranking time to move fuel from
the tank to the engine.
o Sit on seat in operating position,
depress clutch/brake pedal and set
parking brake.
, Place gear shift lever in neutral (N) position.
o Move attachment clutch to "DISENGAGED" position.
o Move throttle control to choke position.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm
and cold starting procedures below.
o Insert key into ignition and turn key
clockwise to "START" position and
release key as soon as engine starts.
Do not run starter continuously for more
than fifteen seconds per minute. If the
engine does not start after several
attempts, move throttle control to fast
position, wait a few minutes and try
again. If engine still does not start,
move the throttle control back to the
See Storage
choke position and retry.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and
above)
When engine starts, move the throttle
control to the fast position.
o The attachments and ground drive can
now be used. If the engine does not
accept the load, restart the engine and
allow it to warm up for one minute using
the choke as described above.
COLD WEATHER STARTING ( 50 ° F AND
BELOW)
o When engine starts, allow engine to run
with the throttle control in the choke
position until the engine runs roughly,
then move throttle control to fast position. This may require an engine warmup period from several seconds to several minutes, depending on the temperature.
o The attachments can also be used during the engine warm-up period.
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.

o When mowing 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 in the opposite direction making
left hand turns until finished
o 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.
o Do not mow grass when it is wet. Wet
grass will plug mower and leave undesirable clumps, Allow grass to dr,/
before mowing.
° Always operate engine at full thro_tle
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 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 at=
tachment being used.
MOWRNG TnPS
o 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.
o The left hand side of mower should be
used for trimming.
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 cuttingo

abuse or negligence. To receive full value
from the warranty, operator must maintain
tractor as instructedin this manual. Some
adjustments will need to be made periodically to properlymaintainyour tractor.
All adjustments in the Service and
Adjustments section of this manual should
be checked at least once each season.
,, Once a year you should replace the
spark plug, clean or replace air filter, and
check blades and beltsfor wear. A new
spark plug and clean air filter assure
proper air-fuel mixture and help your
engine run better and last longer.
................
IMPORTANT: Do not oil or grease the
pivot points which have special nylon bearings. Viscous lubricants will attract dust
and dirt that will shorten the Lifeof the selflubricating bearings, if you feel they must
be lubricated,use only a dry. powdered

TO SHARPEN BLADE
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 it is 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 onto 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.

TO ADJUST CARBURETOR
NOTE: The carburetoron this engine is
low emission. It is equipped withan idle
fuel adjustingneedle witha limitercap,
which allows some adjustmentwithin the
limitsallowed by the cap. Do not attempt
to remove the limitercap. The limitercap
cannot be removed withoutbreaking the
adjusting needle.
The carburetorhas been preset at the factory and adjustmentshouldnot be necessary. However, minor adjustmentmay be
requiredto compensatefor differences in
fuel, temperature, altitudeor load. If the
carburetordoes need adjustment, proceed
as follows:
tn general, turning idlemixture valve in
(clockwise) decreases the supplyof fuel to
the engine givinga leaner fueltair mixture.
Tuming the idle mixturevalve out
(counterclockwise)increases the supply of
fuel to the engine givinga richerfuel/air
mixture.
IMPORTANT: Damage to the needle valve
and the seat in carburetormay resultif
screw is turned in too tight.
PRELIMINARY
SETTING -
o While still holding throttle lever against
idle speed screw, turn idle mixture valve
full travel clockwise then counterclock,
wise 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,
tum 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 result.
IMPORTANT: Never tamper with the
engine govemor, which is factory set for
proper engine speed, overspeeding the
engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous, 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.

duringstorage. Acidic gas can damage the
fuel 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
productsin the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur,
° Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative in minimizingthe formation of
fuel gum depositsduring storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel 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 carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
TRACTOR
Remove mower from tractor for winter
storage. This will allow you to clean it thoroughly. Remove all dirt, grease, leaves,
etc. Store in a clean, dry area.
o Clean entire tractor (See "CLEANING" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
° Inspect and replace belts, if necessary
(See belt replacement instructions in the
Service and Adjustments section of this
