MULCHING MOWING TIPS
•
Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing is
attached to tractor.
IMPORTANT=
FOR BEST PERFORMANCE,
KEEP
MOWER HOUSING FREE OF {3UfLT-UP GRASS AND
TRASH CLEAN AFTER EACH USE.
•
Mower should be propedy levered 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 trim*
mtngo
°
The special muEchlng blade will recul the grass clip*
pings many times and reduce them in size so that as
they fat! onto the lawn they will disperse into the grass
and not be noticed.
Also, the mulched grass will
blodegrade quickly to provide nutrients for the lawn.
Aiways mulch with your highest engine (bfade) speed
as this wtfi provide the best recurring action of the
blades.
•
Avoid cutting your lawn when tt is wet Wet grass tends
to form dumps 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
wt{{ not be exposed to the dlrecf sun.
•
•
Ddve so that
that has been
tractor. This
cflppings and
cfipplnge are dfscharged onto the area
cut. Have the cut area to lhe right of Ihe
witf result in a more even distribution of
more uniform cutting..
•
When mowing fargo areas, start by turning to the right
so that clippings will discharge away lrom shrubs,
fences, driveways, etc. After one ortwo rounds, mow
tn the opposite direction makfng left hand turns untll
finished (See Fig. 11 )o
•
If grass {s extremely tall, it should be mowed twice to
reduce toad and possible fire hazard from dded clippings. Make first cut relatively high; the second to the
desired hefghto
•
Do not mow grass when it is wet. Wet grass wii} plug
mower end leave undesirable clumps° Allow grass to
dry tpefore mowing.
•
Always operate engine at full throttle when mowing to
assure better mowing perlormance and proper discharge of material, Regulate ground speed by select*
ing a low enough gear to give the mower cutting
performance as well as the quality of cut des{i'edo
•
When operating attachments, select a ground speed
that wi)l suit the terrain and give best performance of
the attachment being used_
Forbest resutts, adjust the mower cutting height so that
the mower cuts off only the top one-third of the grass
blades (See Fig. 12). For extremely heavy mutohtng
reduce your w dth of cut and mow slowly
,,
Certain types of grass and grass conditions may require that an area be mulched a second time to completely hide the clipplngs_ When doing a second cut,
mow across or perpendicular to the iirst cut path
*
Change your culling 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_
