I1. SLOPE
OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to loss of
control and tip-over accidents, which can
result in severe injury or death. Operation on all slopes requires extra caution.
If
you cannot back up the slope or if you feel
uneasy on it, do not mow it.
•
Mow up and down slopes, not across.
•
Watch for holes, ruts, bumps, rocks, or
other hidden objects.
Uneven terrain
could overturn the machine. Tall grass
can hide obstacles.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Choose a low ground speed so that
you will not have to stop or shift while
on the slope.
Do not mow on wet grass. Tires may
lose traction.
•
Always keep the machine in gear when
going down slopes. Do not shift to
neutral and coast downhill.
•
Avoid starting, stopping, or turning on
a slope. If the tires lose traction,
disengage the blades and proceed slowly
straight down the slope.
Keep all movement
on the slopes slow
and gradual.
Do not make sudden
changes in speed or direction, which
could cause the machine to roll over.
Use extra care while operating machine with grass catchers or other attachments;
they can affect the stability
of the machine. Do no use on steep
slopes.
Do not try to stabilize the machine by
putting your foot on the ground.
Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches,
or embankments.
The machine could
suddenly roll over if a wheel is over the
edge or if the edge caves in.
III. 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.
Never assume
that children
will remain where you last
saw them.
•
Keep children out of the mowing area
and in the watchful care of a responsible adult other than the operator.
•
Be alert and turn machine off if a child
enters the area.
•
•
Before and while backing, look behind
and down for small children.
Never carry children, even with the
blades shut off. They may fall off and
be seriously injured or interfere with
safe machine operation. Children who
have been given rides in the past may
suddenly appear in the mowing area
for another ride and be run over or
backed over by the machine.
Never allow children to operate the
machine.
Use extra care when approaching
blind
corners, shrubs, trees, or other objects
that may block your view of a child.
IV. TOWING
•
•
•
Tow only with a machine that has a
hitch designed for towing. Do not attach towed equipment except at the
hitch point.
Follow the manufacturer's recommendation for weight limits for towed equipment and towing on slopes.
Never allow children or others in or on
towed equipment.
On slopes, the weight of the towed
equipment may cause loss of traction
and loss of control.
Travel slowly and allow extra distance
to stop.
V. SERVICE
SAFE
HANDLING
OF GASOLINE
To avoid personal injury or property
damage, use extreme care in handling
gasoline. Gasoline is extremely flammable
and the vapors are explosive.
•
Extinguish all cigarettes, cigars, pipes,
and other sources of ignition.
•
Use only approved gasoline container.
•
Never remove gas cap or add fuel with
the engine running. Allow engine to
cool before refueling.
•
Never fuel the machine indoors.
•
Never store the machine or fuel container where there is an open flame,
spark, or pilot light such as on a water
heater or other appliances.
•
Never fill containers
inside a vehicle
or on a truck or trailer bed with plastic
liner. Always place containers
on the
ground away from your vehicle when
filling.
•
•
•
•
Removegas-poweredequipmentfrom
the truckor trailer and refuelit on the
ground. If this is not possible,then
refuelsuch equipmentwith a portable
container,ratherthan from a gasoline
dispensernozzle.
Keepthe nozzle in contactwith the rim
of the fuel tank or containeropening at
all times until fueling is complete.Do
not use a nozzle lock-opendevice.
If fuel is spilled on clothing,change
clothingimmediately.

The operation of any tractor can result in foreign objects thrown into the
eyes, which can result in severe eye damage.
Always wear safety glasses
or eye shields while operating your tractor or performing
any adjustments
or repairs. We recommend
standard safety glasses or a wide vision safety
mask worn over spectacles.
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.
1. Depress clutch/brake pedal all the way
down and hold.
2. Pull parking brake lever up 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 switch
in any position other than "STOP" will
cause the battery to discharge
and go
dead.
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
opping tractor on grass areas.
CAUTION:
Always stop tractor completely, as described
above, before leaving
the operator's
position.

TIPS
• 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
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.

tractor unless the engine and transmission are covered to keep water out. Water
in engine or transmission
will shorten the
useful life of your tractor. Use compressed
air or a leaf blower to remove grass,
leaves and trash from tractor and mower.
Inspect and replace corroded muffler and
spark arrester (if equipped)
as it could create a fire hazard and/or damage.
SPARK PLUG(S)
Replace spark plug(s) at the beginning
of each mowing season or after every
100 hours of operation,
whichever occurs
first. Spark plug type and gap setting are
shown in "PRODUCT
