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 turning.
• Never leave a running machine unattended. Always turn off blades, set parking brake, stop engine, and remove
key_ before dismounting.
• Turnoff blades
when not mowing.

• Use extra care when loading or unload-
CHILDREN
ing the machine into a trailer or truck.
SLOPE
OPERATION
Slopes are a ma}or 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.
• 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.
• 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.
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 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 seriously injured or intedere 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.
Never store the machine or fuel
container inside where there is an
open flame, such as a water heater.
• Never run a machine inside a closed
area.
• Keep nuts and bolts, especially blade
attachment bolts, tight and keep equipment in good condition.
• Never tamper with safety devices.
Check their proper operation regularly.
• Keep machine free of grass, leaves, or
other debris build-up.. Clean oil or fuel
spillage. Allow machine to cool before
storing.
• Stop and inspect the equipment if you
strike an object. Repair, if necessary,
before restarting.
• Never make adjustments or repairs with
the engine running.
• Grass catcher components are subject
to wear, damage, and deterioration,
which could expose moving parts or
allow objects to be thrown. Frequently
check components and replace with
manufacturer's recommended parts,
when necessary.
• Mower blades are sharp and can cut.
• Be sure the area is clear of other people
before mowing. Stop machine if anyone
enters the area.
• Mow up and down slopes (15 ° Max), not
across.
• Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
• Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven
terrain could overturn the machine. Taft
Wrap the blade(s) or wear gloves, and
use extra caution when servicing them.
• Check brake operation frequently.
Adjust and service as required.
• Never carry passengers.
• Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary. Always look down and
behind before and while backing.
• Never carry children. They may fail off
and be seriously injured or interfere with
safe machine operation.
• Keep children out of the mowing area
and under the watchful care of another
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.

BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
CHECKENGINEOIL LEVEL
• The enginein your tractor hasbeen
shipped,fromthe factory,alreadyfilled
with summerweightoil.
• 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 Customer
Responsibilities section of this manual).
•* To change engine oil; see the Customer
Responsibilities section in this manual.
ADD
IMPORTANT: When operating in temperatures below 32°F(0°C), use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
,_/Aweather starting.
RNING: Experience indicates that
alcohol blended fuels (calle_lgasohol 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 untilthe fuel lines and carburetor are
empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See
Storage Instructionsfor additional
information. Never use engine or
carburetor cleaner products in the fuel
t_k 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.
• Move throttle control to fast position
• Pull choke control out for a cold engine
start attempt. For a warm engine start
attempt the choke control may not be
needed.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and
cold starting procedures below.
• Insert key into ignition and tum 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, push choke control in, wait a
few minutes and try again. If engine still
does not start, pull the choke control out
and retry.
GASOLINE
• Fill fuel tank.qJse 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.
16
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F
AND ABOVE)
• When engine starts, slowly push choke
control in untilthe engine begins to run
smoothly. 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.
• 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
BELOW)
STARTING
(50 ° F AND
• 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 control
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 several minutes,
depending on the temperature.
AUTOMATIC
TRANSMISSION
WARM-UP
• Before driving the unit in cold weather,
the transmission should be warmed up
as follows:
• Be sure the tractor is on level ground.
• Place the motion control lever in neutral. Release the parking brake and
let the clutch/brake slowly return to
operating position.
• Allow one minute for transmission to
warm up. This can be done during the
engine warm up period.
• The attachments
can be used during
the engine warm-up period after the
transmission has been warmed up and
may require the choke control be pulled
out slightly.
NOTE: 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 whUe 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
shippingof your tractor.
IMPORTANT:
Should your transmission
require removeal for service or replacement, it should be purged after reinstallation before operating the tractor.
• Place tractor safely on level surface with
engine off and parking brake set.
• Disengage transmission by placing freewheel control in freewheehng position
(See =TO TRANSPORT" in this section
of manual).
• Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move throttle control to slow position. With motion
control lever in neutral (N) position,
slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.
• Move motion control lever to full forward
position and hold for five (5) seconds.
Move lever to full reverse position and
hold for five (5) seconds. Repeat'this
procedure throe (3) times.
NOTE: During this procedure there will be
no movement of drive wheels. The air is
being removed from hydraulic drive system.
• Move motion control lever to neutral (N)
position. Shut off engine and set parking
brake.
• Engage transmission by placing freewheel control in driving position (See
"TO TRANSPORT" in this section cf
manual).
• Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move throttle control to half (1/2) speed. With
motion control lever in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake
pedal.
• Slowly move motion control lever forward; after the tractor moves approximately five (5) feet, slowly move motion
control lever to reverse position. After
the tractor moves approximately five (5)
feet return the motion control lever to
the neutral (N) position. Repeat this procedure with the motion control lever
three (3) times.
• Your tractor is now purged and now
ready for normal operation.
17
MOWING 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 the best 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.
• Tire chains cannot be used when the
mower housing is attached to tractor.
• Mower should be properly leveled for
best mowing performance. See =TO
LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in the
Service and Adjustments section of this
manual.
• Use the runner on the right hand side of
mower as a guide. The blade cuts
approximately an inch outside the runner.
• 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.
• 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 tums until finished.

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 bladecanbe
sharpened with afile
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).
• 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 hodzontal position. If either end of the blade
moves downward, sharpen the heavy
end until the blade is balanced.

TO ADJUST CHOKE CONTROL
The choke control has been preset at the
factory and adjustment should not be necessary, check adjustment as described
below before loosening cable. If adjustment is necessary, proceed as follows:
• With engine not running, move choke
control (located on dash panel) to full
choke position.
• Remove air cleaner cover, filter and cartridge plate to expose carburetor choke
(See =AIR FILTER" in the Customer Responsibilities section of this manual).
• Choke should be closed. If it is not,
loosen casing clamp screw and move
choke cable untilchoke is completely
closed. Tighten casing clamp screw securely.
• Reassemble air cleaner.
• With engine off turn idle fuel adjusting
needle in (clockwise) closing it finger
tight and then turn out (counterclockwise) 1 tum.
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.
• The high idle is set at the factory and
cannot be adjusted.
• Idle sDeed 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 tum
out (counterclockwise) approximately
3/4 turn to obtain the best low speed
performance.
• Recheck idle speed. Readjust if necessary.

fast position. If engine hesitates or dies,
tum idle fuel adjusting needle out
(counterclockwise) 1/8 tum. 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 govern0 r, which is factory set for
proper engine speed. Overspeeding the
engine above the facory high speed setting can be dangerous. If you think the
engine-governed high speed needs
adjusting, contact your nearest authorized
service senter/department,
which has
proper equipment and experience to make
any necessary adjustments.
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. Ifthe
carburetor does need adjustment, proceed
as follows:
In general, tuming the adjusting needles
in (clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel
to the engine giving a leaner fuel/a=r mixture. Turning the adjusting needles out
(countemlockwise) increases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a richer fuel/air
mixture.
IMPORTANT: Damage to the needles
and the seats in carburetor may result if
screw is turned in too tight.
PRELIMINARY
SETTING
-
• Be sure you have a clean air filter, and
the throttle control cable is adjusted
propedy (see "TO ADJUST THRO'I-I'LE
CONTROL CABLE" in the Service and
Adjustments section of this manual).
30
Immediatelyprepareyourtractorfor storageat the endof the seasonor if the tractor will not be usedfor 30 days or more.
_,CAUTION:
Never store the tractor with
gasoline in the tank inside a building
where fumes may reach an open flame or
spark. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.
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.
• 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
manual).
• Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance
section of this manual.
• Be sure that all nuts, belts and screws
are securely fastened. Inspect moving
parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
• Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
BATTERY
• Fully charge the battery for storage.
• After a period of time in storage, battery
may require recharging.
• To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long periods of storage,
battery cables should be disconnected
and battery cleaned thoroughly (see
"TO CLEAN BATTERY AND TERMINALS" in the Maintenance section of
Also, 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.
• 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
altemative 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. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
ENGINE OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil. (See =ENGINE" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
CYLINDERS
• Remove spark plug(s).
• Pour one ounce of oil through spark plug
hole(s) into cylinder(s).
• Turn ignition key to =START" position for
a few seconds to distribute oil.
• Replace with new spark plug(s).
OTHER
• Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.
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 your gasoline can if it 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.
ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM
Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot
breathe, which allows condensation to
form and cause your tractor to rust.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover tractor while
engine and exhaust areas are still warm.
IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent
gum deposits from forming in essential
fuel system parts such as carburetor, fuel
filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage.
