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 (10 degrees maximum),
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 while on the slope.
• Do not mow on wet grass. Tires may lose traction.
• Avoid starting, stopping, or turning on a slope. If
the tires lose traction, disengage the blades and
proceed slowly straight down the slope.
• Keep movement on the slopes slow and gradual.
Do not make sudden changes in speed or
direction, which could cause machine to roll over.
• Use extra care while operating machine with
grass catchers or other attachments; they can
affect the stability of the machine.
WARNING!
Do not drive up or down hills with
slopes greater than 10 degrees. Do not
drive across any slopes.

SAFETY
•
•
•
Do not use on steep slopes.
Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting a
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.
WARNING!
CHILDREN CAN BE INJURED BY
THIS EQUIPMENT. The American
Academy of Pediatrics recommends
that children be a minimum of 16
years of age before operating a riding
lawn mower. Keep children out of the

static electricity by touching a metal surface.
• Never fill containers inside a vehicle or on a truck
or trailer bed with plastic liner. Always place
containers on the ground away from the vehicle
when filling.
• Remove equipment from the truck or trailer and
refuel it on the ground. If this is not possible, refuel
such equipment with a portable container, rather
than from a fuel dispenser nozzle.
• Keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel
tank or container opening at all times until fueling
is complete. Do not use a nozzle lock-open
device.
• If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing
immediately.
• Never overfill fuel tank. Replace fuel cap and
tighten securely.
• Do not start the engine near spilled fuel.
• Never use diesel fuel as a cleaning agent.
• If leaks arise in fuel system, engine must not be
started until problem has been resolved.
• Check the fuel level before each use and leave
space for the fuel to expand, as the heat from the
engine and the sun may otherwise cause the fuel
to expand and overflow.

variable using the two steering controls. The steering
controls can be moved forward or backward about
a neutral position. Furthermore, there is a neutral
position, which is locked if the steering controls are
moved outward.
When both controls are in the neutral position (N), the
machine stands still.
By moving both controls an equal amount forward
or backward, the machine moves in a straight line
forward or backward respectively.
In order, for example, to turn right while moving
forward, move the right control towards the neutral
position. The rotation of the right wheel is reduced and
the machine turns to the right.
Zero turn can be achieved by moving one control
backward (behind the neutral position) and carefully
moving the other steering control forward from its
neutral position. The rotation direction when zero
turning is determined by which steering control is
moved backward behind the neutral position. If the left
steering control is pulled backward, the machine turns
to the left. Use extra care when using this maneuver.

CONTROLS
Control Module
The control module operates and monitors multiple
functions such as warning lighting, seat delay, audible
buzzer, PTO interlock and start timer.
Warning lights on the module include battery voltage,
low oil pressure, high coolant temp and glow plugs.
On initial start up, all lights will illuminate for one
second and the buzzer will chirp one time.
Battery Voltage
The battery light will illuminate constant if the battery
voltage drops below 12V and will flash if voltage
jumps above 15V.
Oil Pressure
When the ignition switch is turned to ACC or RUN,
the oil pressure light will illuminate until the engine is
started.
After thirty seconds, the buzzer will sound and the
ignition switch will need to be turned off and back on
before the PTO will function. If the oil pressure drops
to an unsafe level during operation, the buzzer will
sound, the PTO will disengage and the ignition switch
will need to be turned off and back on before the PTO
will function.
Coolant Temperature
If the coolant temperature reaches an unsafe level, the
light will illuminate for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds,
the buzzer will sound and the PTO will disengage and
the ignition switch will need to be turned off and back
on before the PTO will function.
Glow Plug
Depending on the ambient temperature, the glow plug
light may also illuminate indicating that a pre-glow is
required. After the engine is started, the glow light will
remain lit for five seconds as an after glow.
Above 50° F (10°C), no pre-glow is required and the
light will illuminate for one second
Above 23° F (-5°C), but below 50° F (10°C), a
five second pre-glow is required and the light will
illuminate for five seconds
Below 23° F (-5°C), a ten second pre-glow is required,
and the light will illuminate for ten seconds.
Once the engine is started, these lights will remain off
unless there is low oil pressure, high coolant temp,
or the alternator quits charging causing low battery
voltage or battery voltage jumps to an unsafe level.

Fuel Tanks
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
It is recommended that fuel be added to both
tanks on initial start up.
Read the safety instructions before refueling. The
machine has two fuel tanks, one on each side just
behind the seat. The capacity for each tank is 6
gallons (11.4 liters).
Regularly check the fuel cap gasket for damage and
keep the cap properly tightened.
The use of low sulfur fuel or ultra low sulfur fuel is
mandatory for when the unit is operated in areas
regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA). Use No.2-D S500 or S15 diesel fuel as an
alternative to No.2-D, and use No.1-D S500 or S15
diesel fuel as an alternative to No.1-D for ambient
temperatures below 14 °F (−10 °C) to help insure
good cold weather starting.
WARNING!
Diesel fuel is flammable. Observe
caution and fill the tank outdoors (see
the Safety section).
WARNING!
The engine and the exhaust system
become very hot during operation.
Risk for burns if touched.
Allow engine and exhaust system to
cool before refueling.

Fuel tanks
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
To avoid engine problems, the fuel system
should be emptied before storage of 30 days
or longer. Drain the fuel tanks, start the engine
and let it run until the fuel lines and injector
are empty. Use fresh fuel the next season.
See Storage Instructions for additional
information. Never use engine or injector
cleaners in the fuel tank or permanent damage
may occur.
OPERATION
Read the Safety Instructions section and the
following pages if you are unfamiliar with the machine.
Training
Due to unique steering capabilities, zero turn mowers
are far more maneuverable than typical riding
mowers.
This section should be reviewed in its entirety prior to
attempting to move the mower under its own power.
When first operating the mower or until becoming
comfortable with controls, use a reduced throttle
speed and reduced ground speed. DO NOT move
control levers to the furthest forward or reverse
positions during initial operation.
First time users should become familiar with the
mower’s movement on a hard surface, such as
concrete or blacktop PRIOR to attempting to operate
on turf. Until the operator becomes comfortable with
the mower controls and zero turning capability, overly
aggressive maneuvers may damage turf.
Steering
To move forward and backward
The direction and speed of the mower’s movements
are effected by the movement of the control lever(s)
on each side of mower. The left control lever controls
the left wheel. The right control lever controls the right
wheel.
Pull back slightly on control levers, allowing the mower
to move backwards. Push the control levers forward to
the neutral position and mower should stop moving.
To turn to the right
While moving in a forward direction, pull the right lever
back towards the neutral position while maintaining
the position of the left lever, this will slow the rotation
of the right wheel and cause the machine to turn in
that direction.
To turn to the left
While moving in a forward direction pull the left lever
back towards the neutral position while maintaining
the position of the right lever, this will slow the rotation
of the left wheel and cause the machine to turn in that
direction.
To zero turn
While moving in a forward direction, first pull both
control levers back until the mower stops or slows
dramatically.
Then by alternating one lever slightly to the forward
position and the other in the reverse position,
complete the turn.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When control levers are in the reverse position
they return to neutral when released. This may
cause the mower to suddenly stop.
First time users should push the mower (see Moving
Machine By Hand in the Operation section) to an
open, flat area without other people, vehicles or
obstacles nearby. To move the unit under its own
power, the operator must sit in the seat and start
the engine (see Before Starting in the Operation
section). Adjust the engine speed to idle, disengage
the parking brake but do not engage the blades at
this time. Rotate control levers inward. If the control
levers have not been moved forward or backward, the
mower will not move.
Slowly move both control levers forward slightly. This
will allow mower to start moving forward in a straight
line. Pull the control levers back to the neutral position
and the mower should stop moving.

Mowing Tips

•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
36
Observe and flag rocks and other fixed objects to
avoid collisions.
Begin with a high cutting height and reduce it
until the desired mowing result is attained. The
average lawn should be cut to 2½" (64 mm)
during the cool season and over 3" (76 mm)
during the hot months. For healthier and better
looking lawns, mow often after moderate growth.
For best cutting performance, grass over 6" (15
cm) in height should be mowed twice. Make the
first cut relatively high; the second to the desired
height.
The mowing result will be best with a high engine
speed (the blades rotate rapidly) and low speed
(the rider moves slowly). If the grass is not
too long and dense, the driving speed can be
increased without negatively affecting the mowing
result.
The finest lawns are obtained by mowing often.
The lawn becomes more even and the grass
clippings more evenly distributed over the mown
area. The total time taken is not increased as a
higher operating speed can be used without poor
mowing results.
Avoid mowing wet lawns. The mowing result is
poorer because the wheels sink into the soft lawn,
clumps build, and the grass clippings fasten
under the cowling.
Hose the mower deck underside with water after
each use. When cleaning, the mower deck shall
be raised into the transport position. Make sure
the mower is cooled and the engine is off.
Use compressed air to clean top surface of the
deck. Avoid flooding water on top surface, engine
and electrical components.
When the mulching kit is used, it is important that
the mowing interval is frequent and that the deck
is cleaned more often.
WARNING!
Clear the lawn of stones and other
objects that can be thrown out by the
blades.

WARNING!
Never drive the rider on terrain that
slopes more than 10 degrees. Mow
slopes up and down, never side
to side. Avoid sudden directional
changes.

Adjusting the Mower Deck
Leveling Deck
Adjust the deck while the mower is on a level
surface. Make sure the tires are inflated to the correct
pressure. See Tire Pressures in Maintenance section.
If tires are under or over inflated, the deck cannot be
properly adjusted. Faulty mower deck adjustments will
cause an uneven mowing result.
Four bolts control the height and pitch of the mower
deck. The deck should be adjusted slightly higher in
the rear.
NOTE: To insure accuracy of leveling procedure,
mower deck drive belt must be installed prior to
leveling the deck.
1. Wear heavy gloves. Turn each outer blade tip to
align the deck in a side-to-side manner.
2. Measure from the floor surface up to the bottom
of the blade tip on the discharge side of the
mower deck. Retain this measurement. Move to
the opposite side; check that measurement is
the same. If adjustment is required, loosen the
locknut and adjust bolt up until both side-to-side
measurements are equal. Retain measurement.
3. Turn both outer blades to align with the deck in
front-to-rear manner. Reposition rear mounting
bolts up or down until rear blade tips are
positioned 1/8" to 3/8" higher in the rear than the
front blade tips.
4. Confirm measurements once again. Blade tip
height should be equal in a side-to-side manner.
In the rear, blade tips should be 1/8" to 3/8" higher
than the front measurement. In the front, blade
tips should be equal from side-to-side.
NOTE: This will place the mower deck in a base
measurement position. Additional adjustment may be
required to achieve desired cut for the type of grass
or conditions being mowed.

Transmission Purging Procedures
Due to the effects air has on efficiency in hydrostatic
drive applications, it is critical to purge the system.
These purge procedures should be implemented
any time a hydrostatic system has been opened to
facilitate maintenance or any additional oil has been
added to the system.
Resulting symptoms in hydrostatic systems may be:
• Noisy operation.
• Lack of power or drive after short term operation.
• High operation temperature and excessive
expansion of oil.
Before starting, make sure the oil tank is at the proper
oil level. If not, fill to the specifications outlined in this
section.
The following procedures are best performed with the
vehicle drive wheels off the ground, then repeated
under normal operating conditions.
8. Disengage the brake if activated.
9. With the bypass valve open and the engine
running at fast idle, slowly move the directional
control in both forward and reverse directions (5
or 6 times). As air is purged from the unit, the oil
level will drop.
54
10. With the bypass valve closed and the engine
running, slowly move the directional control in
both forward and reverse directions (5 to 6 times).
Check the oil level and add oil as required after
stopping the engine.
11. It may be necessary to repeat Steps 2 and 3 until
all the air is completely purged from the system.
When the hydraulic drive operates at normal noise
levels and moves smoothly forward and reverse at
normal speeds, the hydraulic drive is considered
purged.
12. After the vehicle has been used two times, the oil
level should be checked while the oil is cold and
adjusted accordingly.

STORAGE
Winter Storage
The machine should be readied for storage at the
end of the mowing season or if it will not be in use for
longer than 30 days.
Fuel allowed to stand for long periods of time (30 days
or more) can leave sticky residues that can plug the
injector and disrupt engine function.
Fuel stabilizers are an acceptable option as regards
to the sticky residues that can occur during storage.
Add stabilizer to the fuel in the tank or in the storage
container. Always use the mixing ratios specified by
the manufacturer of the stabilizer. Run the engine for
at least 10 minutes after adding the stabilizer so that
it reaches the injector. Do not empty the fuel tank and
the injector if a stabilizer has been added.
WARNING!
Never store an engine with fuel
in the tank indoors or in poorly
ventilated spaces where fuel vapor
can come in contact with open
flames, sparks, or a pilot light such
as in a boiler, hot water tank, clothes
drier, etc. Handle the fuel with care.
It is very flammable and can cause
serious personal injury and property
damage. Drain the fuel into an
approved container outdoors and
far away from open flame. Never
use diesel fuel for cleaning. Use
a degreaser and warm water.
To ready the machine for storage, follow these steps:
1. Thoroughly clean the machine, especially under
the mower deck. Touch up damage to the paint
and spray a thin layer of oil on the underside of
the mower deck to avoid corrosion.
2. Inspect the machine for worn or damaged parts
and tighten any nuts or screws that may have
become loose.
3. Change the engine oil; dispose of properly.
4. Empty the fuel tanks or add a fuel stabilizer. Start
the engine and allow it to run until the injector is
drained of fuel or the stabilizer has reached the
injector.
5. Lubricate all grease zerks, joints, and axles.
6. Remove the battery. Clean, charge, and store the
battery in a cool place, but protect it from direct
cold.
7. Store the machine in a clean, dry place and cover
it for extra protection.
Service
When ordering spare parts, please specify the
purchase year, model, type, and serial number.
Always use genuine Husqvarna spare parts.
An annual check-up at an authorized service
workshop is a good way to ensure that the machine
performs its best the following season.
