GENERAL
OPERATION
• Read, understand, and follow all instructions in the manual and on the
machine before starting.
• Only allow responsible adults, who are
familiar with the instructions, to operate
the machine.
• 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.
• Never carry passengers.
• Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary. Always look down and
behind before and while backing.
• Be aware of the mower discharge direction and do not point it at anyone.
Do not operate the mower without either the entire grass catcher or the
guard in place.
• Slow down before tuming.
• Never leave a running machine unattended. Always turn off blades, set
parking brake, stop engine, and re2
move keys before dismounting.
• Tum off blades when not mowing.
• Stop engine before removing grass
catcher or unclogging chute.
• Mow only in daylight or good artificial
light.
• Do not operate the machine while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
• Watch for traffic when operating near
or crossing roadways.
• Use extra care when loading or unloading the machine into a trailer or
truck.
SLOPE
OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to lossof-control and tipever 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.
• Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
• Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven terrain could overtum 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 nottum 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 nottry to stabilize the machine by
putting your foot on the ground.
• Do not use grass catcher on steep
slopes.
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 sedously 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.
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
not smoke.
Never refuel the machine indoors.

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 2-112 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.
TO OPERATE ON HILLS
_CAUTION:
Do not drive up or down
hillswith slopes greater than 15° and do
not drive across any slope.

ADD GASOLINE
TO START ENGINE
• 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
de_its
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 cold weather starting.
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
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.
• Sit on seat in operating position,

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 =OIL
VISCOSITY CHART" in the Customer
ResponsibiUties section of this
manual).
• To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
15
COLD WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and
below)
• When engine starts, slowly push
choke control in until the engine
begins to run smoothly. Continue to
push the choke control in small steps
allowing the engine to accept small
changes in speed and load, until the
choke contro/is fully in. If the engine
starts to run roughly, pull the choke
control out slightly for a few seconds
and then continue to push the control
in slowly. This may require an engine
warm-up period from several seconds
to severa/minutes,
depending on the
temperature.
• The attachments can be used during
the engine warm-up period and may
require the choke control be pulled out
slightly.
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.
MOWING
• When mowing large areas, start by
tuming 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.
• 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.
• Always operate engine at full throttle
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance and proper discharge ot
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.
[
]
TIPS
• Tire chains cannot be used when the
mower housing is attached to tractor.
• Mower should be propedy 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.
• 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.

GENERAL
RECOMMENDATIONS
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 propedy maintain your
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 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.
BEFORE EACH USE
Check engine oil level.
Check brake operation.
Check tire pressure.
Check operator presence and
interlock systems for proper operation.
• Check for loose fasteners.

necessary. Check adjustment as
descdbed below before loosening cable.
If adjustment is necessary, proceed as
follows:
• With engine not running, move throttle
control lever from slow to choke
position. Slowly move lever from
choke to fast position.
• Check that holes =A" in governor
control lever and hole in governor
plate line-up. If holes =A" are not
aligned, loosen clamp screw and
move throttle cable until holes are
aligned. Tighten clamp screw securely.
GovernorControlLever GovernorControl
PRELIMINARY SETTING • Air cleaner assembly must be assembled to the carburetor when
making carburetor adjustments.
• Be sure the throttle control cable is
adjusted propedy (see above).
FINAL SETTING • Start engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make final adjustments with
engine running and shift/motion
control lever in neutral (N) position.
• Move throttle control lever to slow
position. With finger, rotate and hold
throttle lever against idle speed
screw. Turn idle speed screw to attain
1750 RPM.
• While still holding throttle lever against
idle-speed screw, tum idle mixture
valve full travel clockwise then
counterclockwise until engine runs
rough. Turn valve to a point midway
between those two positions. Release
throttle lever.
ACCELERATION TEST • Move throttle control lever from slow to
fast position. If engine hesitates or
dies, turn idle mixture valve out
(counterclockwise) 1/8 rum. 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-govemed high speed needs
adjusting, contact your nearest AUTHORIZED service center/department, which
has proper equipment and experience to
make any necessary adjustments.

TO ADJUST CARBURETOR
NOTE: The carburetor on this engine is
low emission. It is equipped with an idle
fuel adjusting needle with a limiter cap,
which allows some adjustment within the
limits allowed by the cap. Do not attempt
to remove the limiter cap. The limiter cap
cannot be removed without breaking the
adjusting needle.
The carburetor has been preset at the
factory and adjustment should not be
necessary. However, minor adjustment
may be required to compensate for
differences in fuel, temperature, altitude
or load. If the carburetor does need
adjustment, proceed as follows:
In general, turning idle mixture valve in
(clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel
to the engine giving a leaner fueVair
mixture. Tuming the idle mixture valve
out (counterclockwise) increases the
supply of fuel to the engine giving a
dcher fuel/air mixture.
IMPORTANT: Damage to the needle
valve and the seat in carburetor may
result if screw is turned in too tight.

blended fuels 9called gasohol or using
ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture
which leads to separation and formation
of acids during storage. Acidic gascan
damage the fuel system of an engine
while in storage.
• Drain the fuel tank.
• Start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor are empty.
• Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner products in the fuel tank or
permanent damage may occur.
• Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE:
Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative in minimizing the formation of
fuel gum deposits during 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.

ENGINE OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil. (See =ENGINE" in
the Customer Responsibilities section of
this manual).
CYLINDER(S)

plug hole(s) into cylinder(s).
• Tum ignition key to =START" position
for a few seconds to distribute oil.
BAI"rERY
• Fully charge the battery for storage.
• After a pedod of time in storage,
battery may require recharging.
• To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long pedods of
storage, battery cables should be
disconnected and battery cleaned
thoroughly (see "TO CLEAN BATTERY
AND TERMINALS" in the Customer
Responsibilities section of this
manual).
• After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place cables where they
cannot come in contact with battery
terminals.
• If battery is removed from tractor for
storage, do not store battery directly on
concrete or damp surfaces.
• Replace
OTHER
with new spark plug(s).
• Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.
• Replace your gasoline can if your can
starts to rust. Rust and/or dirt in your
gasoline will cause problems.
• If possible, store your tractor indoors
and cover it to give protection from
dust and dirt.
• Cover your tractor with a suitable
protective cover that does not retain
moisture.
Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe which allows condensation to form and will cause your
tractor to rust.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover tractor while
