HOW TO USE YOUR TRACTOR
TO SET PARKING 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.
• Depress clutch/brake pedal into full
"BRAKE" position and hold,
• Place parking brake lever in "ENGAGED position and release pressure from clutch/brake pedal. Pedal
should remain in "BRAKE" position,
Make sure parking brake will hold
tractor secure.

IMPORTANT: Leaving the ignition

willcause the batteryto be discharged,
(dead).
NOTE; Under cedain conditionswhen
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
stopping tractor on grass areas.
CAUTION: Always stop tractor
completely, as described above, before
leaving the operator's position; to empty
grass catcher, etc.
TO USE THROI-FLE CONTROL
Always operate engine at full throttle.
• Operating engine at less than full
throttle reduces the battery charging
rate.
• Full throttle offers the best bagging
and mower performance.
TO USE CHOKE CONTROL
Use choke control whenever you are
starting a cold engine. Do not use to start
a warm engine.
• To engage choke control, pull knob
out. Slowly push knob in to disengage.

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.
• Select desired height of cut.
• Lower mower with attachment lift

r
TOWING CARTS AND OTHER
ATI'ACHMENTS
Tow only the attachments that are
recommended by and comply with
specifications of the manufacturer of your
tractor. Use common sense when towing.
Too heavy of a load, while on a slope, is
dangerous, Tires can lose traction with
the ground and cause you to lose control
of your tractor.
BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
• The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
• Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
• Unthread and remove oil fill cap/
dipstick; wipe oil off. Reinsert the
dipstick into the tube and rest oil fill
cap on the tube. Do not thread the cap
onto the tube. 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 Maintenance section of this manual).
• To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
ADD GASOLINE
• 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 cold weather starting.
AWARNING:
Experience indicates that
alcohol blended fuels (called gasohof 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. Sea Storage Instructions
for additional information. Never use
engine or carburetor cleaner products in
the fuel tank or permanent 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.
• Be sure freewheel control is in the
transmission engaged position.
• Sit on seat in operating position,
depress clutch/brake pedal and set
parking brake.
• Place motion control lever in neutral
(N) position.
• Move attachment clutch to "DISENGAGED" position.

using the choke as descdbedabove.
• The attachments can be used dudng
the engine warm-up period after the
transmission has been warmed up
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.
PURGE TRANSMISSION
CAUTION: Never engage or disengage freewheel lever while the engine is
running.
To ensure proper operation and performance, it is recommended that.the
transmission be purged before operating
tractor for the first time. This procedure
will remove any trapped air inside the
transmission which may have developed
during shipping of your tractor.
IMPORTANT: Should your transmission
require removal for service or replacement, it should be purged after reinstallalion before operating the tractor.
• Place tractor safely on level surface
with engine off and parking brake set.
• Disengage transmission by placing
freewheel control in freewheeling

Viscous lubricants will attract dust and dirt
that will shorten the life of the self-lubricating
bearings. If you feel they must be lubricated,
use only a dry, powdered graphite type
lubricant sparingly.
TRACTOR
Always observe safety rules when
performing any maintenance.
BRAKE OPERATION
If tractor requires more than six (6) feet
stopping distance at high speed in
highest gear, then brake must be
adjusted. (See =TO ADJUST BRAKE" in
the Service and Adjustments section of
this manual).
TIRES
• Maintain proper air pressure in all tires
(See "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS"
section of this manual).
• Keep tires free of gasoline, oil, or
insect control chemicals which can
harm rubber,
• Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, sharp
objects and other hazards that may
cause tire damage.
NOTE; To seal tire punctures and
prevent flat tires due to slow leaks, tire
sealant may be purchased from your
local parts dealer. Tire sealant also
prevents tire dry rot and corrosion.
OPERATOR PRESENCE 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
clutch/brake pedal is fully depressed
and attachement clutch control is in
the disengaged position.
• When the engine is running, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat without first setting the parking
brake should shut off the engine.
• When the engine is running and the
attachment clutch is engaged, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat should shut off the engine.
• The attachment clutch should never
operate unless the operator is in the
seat,
BLADE CARE
For best results mower blades must be
kept sharp. Replace bent or damaged
blades.
BLADE REMOVAL
• Raise mower to highest position to
allow access to blades.
• Remove hex bolt, lock washer and flat
washer securing blade.
• Install new or resharpened blade with
trailing edge up towards deck as

*A Grade 8 heat treatedbolt can be identified
by six lineson the bolt head.
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 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 unthraaded
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
The carburetor has been present 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 the adjusting needles
in (clockwise) decreases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a leaner fueVair
mixture. Tuming the adjusting needles
out (counterclockwise) increases the
supply of fuel to the engine giving a
richer fueVair mixture.
IMPORTANT= Damage to the needles
and the seats in carburetor may result if
screw is turned in too tight.
• Start engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make final adjustments with
engine running and shift/motion
control lever in neutral (N) position.
• The high idle is set at the factory and
cannot be adjusted.
• Idle speed setting - With throttle control
lever in slow position, engine should
idle at 1200 RPM. If engine idles too
slow or fast, turn idle speed adjusting
screw in or out until correct idle is
attained.
• Idle fuel needle settina - With throttle
control lever in slow position, turn idle
fuel adjusting needle In (clockwise)
until engine speed decreases and
then turn out (counterclockwise)
approximately 3/4 turn to obtain the
best low speed performance.
• Recheck idle speed. Readjust if
necessary.
ACCELERATION TEST • Move throttle control lever from slow to
fast position, if engine hesitates or
dies, turn idle fuel adjusting needle
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
eninge governor, which is factory set for
proper engine speed. Overspeeding the
engine above the factory high speed
settng can be dangerous, it you think the
engine-governed high speed needs
adjusting, contact your nearest authorized service center/department, which
has proper equipment and experience to
make any necessary adjustments.

FUEL SYSTEM
IMPORTANT: It is importantto prevent
gum depositsfrom forming in essential
fuel systemparts such as carburetor,fuel
filter, fuel hose,or tank duringstorage.
Also, experienceindicatesthat alcohol
blended fuels 9called gasoholor using
ethanolor methanol)can attractmoisture
whichleads to separationand formation
of acids duringstorage.Acidicgas can
damage the fuel systemof an engine
whilein storage.
• Drain the fuel tank.
• Startthe engineand let it rununtilthe
fuel linesand carburetorare empty.
• Never use engineor carburetor
cleanerproductsin the fuel tank or
permanentdamage may occur.
• Use fresh fuel nextseason.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizeris an acceptable
alternativein minimizingthe formation of
fuel gum depositsduringstorage. Add
stabilizerto gasolinein fuel tankor
storagecontainer. Alwaysfollow the mix
ratiofound on stabilizercontainer. Run
engineat least 10 minutesafter adding
stabilizerto allow the stabilizerto reach
the carburetor. Do notdrain the gastank
