CONTROLS
1. Motion Control Levers
The machine’s speed and direction are continuously
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.
8011-751
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.
Motion control levers
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
manoeuver.
WARNING!
The machine can turn very
rapidly if one steering control
is moved much further forward
than the other.
Tracking
1
If the mower is not tracking straight, check the air
pressure in both rear tires. Recommended air
pressure is 15 psi (1 bar). Tracking must be checked
on a flat and level concrete or blacktop surface. If
unit still does not track straight, contact a Husqvarna
workshop for adjustment.

the seat. The tank take 3 gallons
(11.4 liters).
The engine will run on a minimum of
85-octane unleaded gasoline (no oil mix).
Environmentally adapted alkylate gasoline
can be used beneficially. See also Technical
Data concerning ethanol fuel. Methanol fuel
is not allowed.
WARNING!
Gasoline is highly flammable.
Observe caution and fill the
tank outdoors
(see the safety rules).
WARNING!
Fill to bottom of filler neck. Do
not overfill. Wipe off any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store,
spill or use gasoline near an
open flame.

(0˚ C.), use fresh, clean winter grade gasoline
to help insure good cold weather starting.
8011-752
Fuel tank
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Experience indicates that alcohol
blended fuels (called gasohol, 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
the next season. See Storage
Instructions for additional information.
Never use engine or carburetor cleaners
in the fuel tank or permanent damage
may occur.

12. Cutting height pedal
The deck cutting height is obtained by
pressing the foot pedal forward to lift the
deck. To lower the deck, you apply pressure
to the top side of the foot pedal and allow it to
pivot while allowing the lift arm to rotate to the
rear of the unit. To stop in a desired cutting
position, rotate the foot pedal down into the
notch in the height plate. The cutting height
range is from 1 1/2" (38 mm) to 5" (127 mm)
in 1/2" (13 mm) increments. The heights are
measured from the ground up to the blade tip
with the engine not running

OPERATION
Operation
Read “Safety Instructions” on page 7 and following pages, if you are unfamiliar with the machine.
Training
Zero turn mowers are far more manueverable than typical riding mowers due to their unique steering
capabilities.
We recommend that this section be reviewed in it’s entirety prior to attempting to move the mower under its
own power. Additionally, we suggest when first operating mower, use a reduced throttle speed and reduced
ground speed by NOT moving control levers to the furthest forward or reverse positions during initial
operation, or until operator becomes comfortable with controls. We also suggest first time users, or new
users to ZeroTurn mowers to become familiar with the mowers movement on a hard surface, such as
concrete or blacktop PRIOR to attempting to operate on turf. Until operator becomes comfortable with
mower controls and zero turning capability, they may damage turf due to over aggressive maneuvers.
To move forward and backward
The direction and speed of the mowers movements is 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.
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 mower (see “Moving by Hand” on page 30) to an open, flat area, without other
people or vehicles/obstacles near by. In order to move unit under its own power, the operator must be in the
seat, start engine (see “Before Starting” on page 22), adjust engine speed to idle, disengage parking brake,
do not engage blades at this time, rotate control levers inward. As long as the control levers have not been
moved forward or backwards, mower will not move. Slowly move both control levers forward slightly, this will
allow mower to start moving forward in a straight line. Pull back on control levers to the neutral position and
mower should stop moving. Pull back slightly on control levers, this will allow mower to start moving
backwards. Push forward on control levers 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.

Mowing Tips
•
•
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.
WARNING!
Clear the lawn of stones and
other objects that can be
thrown out by the blades.
The average lawn should be cut to 2 1/2"
(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.
•
When the mulching kit is used, it is
important that the mowing interval is
frequent.

cannot come in contact with the plug.
WARNING!
Blades are sharp. Protect your
hands with gloves and/or wrap
blades with a heavy cloth when
handling.
Chech the tire pressure before adjustment of
the mower deck, refer to page 41.
Faulty mower deck adjustment will cause an
uneven mowing result.
46-English
MAINTENANCE
To level deck
Adjust the deck while the mower is on a level
surface. Make sure the tires are inflated to the
correct pressure. See “Technical Data” on
page 62. If tires are under or over inflated,
you can not properly adjust your deck.
NOTE: It may be easier to adjust the front lift
linkages by removing the floor pan before any
adjustments are made.
Side-to-side adjustment
1.
Raise the deck into the four inch 4”
(102 mm) cutting position.
2.
Measure height from the bottom edge of
the deck to the ground at both front
corners. Distance “A” should be the
same, or within 3/16” (5 mm) of an inch.
3.
If adjustment is necessary, make
adjustment to one side of the deck only

4.
Remove the securing ring from the top
pin and the bottom clevis pin. Push
bottom clevis pin through deck lift
connector while supporting deck. Adjust
by moving the deck lift connector to a
new hole to lower or raise that specific
corner of the deck. The round hole
closest to the long slot is the shorter
length and will raise the deck, the round
hole farthest away from the long slot is
the longer of the two and would lower the
deck when used.
5.
Recheck measurements after
adjustment.

Front-to-back adjustment
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Deck must be leveled side-to-side, prior to
leveling front to back. If the following front
to back adjustment is required, be sure to
adjust both front and rear linkages equally
so the deck will stay level side to side.
To obtain the best cutting performance, the
deck should be adjusted so the front tip of the
blades are approximately 1/8" (3.2 mm) to
1/4" (6.5 mm) lower than the rear tip. If the
front tip is higher, this will create a poor
quality of cut.
CZ-19
Front to back adjustment
WARNING!
Blades are sharp. Protect your
hands with gloves and/or wrap
blades with a heavy cloth when
handling.
1.
Check blade height with blade facing
front to rear. Measure distance “B” at the
front and rear tip of the blade.
2.
Before making any necessary
adjustments, check to make sure that the
deck is level side-to-side. See page 47.
3.
With the deck in the 4” (100 mm) cutting
position, measure the front and rear tip of
each blade while facing front to rear.

STORAGE
Storage
To ready the machine for storage, follow these
steps:
Winter Storage
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
carburetor is drained of fuel or the stabilizer
has reached the carburetor.
5.
Remove the spark plug and pour about a
tablespoon of engine oil into the cylinder. Turn
over the engine so that the oil is evenly
distributed and then refit the spark plug.
6.
Lubricate all grease zerks, joints, and axles.
7.
Remove the battery. Clean, charge, and store
the battery in a cool place, but protect it from
direct cold.
8.
Store the machine in a clean, dry place and
cover it for extra protection.
At the end of the mowing season, the machine
should be readied for storage (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 foul the
carburetor and disrupt engine function.
Fuel stabilizers are an acceptable option as
regards sticky residues 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
carburetor. Do not empty the fuel tank and the
carburetor if you have added stabilizer.
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 careless
use can cause serious personal
injury and property damage.
Drain the fuel into an approved
container outdoors and far
away from open flame. Never
use gasoline for cleaning. Use
a degreaser and warm water
instead.
