EQUIPMENT SAFETY GUIDELINES
z
Safety of the operator and by standards is one of the main concerns in designing and
developing a mower. However, every year accidents occur which could have been avoided
by a few seconds of thought and a more careful approach to handling equipment. You,
the operator, can avoid many accidents by observing the following precautions and insist
those working with you, or for you, follow them.
z
In order to provide a better view, certain photographs or illustrations in this manual may
show an assembly with a safety shield removed. However, equipment should never be
operated in this condition. Keep all shields in place. If shield removal becomes necessary for repairs, replace the shield prior to use.

SAFETY TRAINING
z
Safety is a primary concern in the design and manufacture of our product.
Unfortunately, our efforts to provide safe equipment can be wiped out by
a single careless act of an operator or bystander.
z
In addition to the design and configuration of equipment, hazard control
and accident prevention are dependent upon the awareness, concern,
prudence and proper training of personnel involved in the operation, transport, maintenance and storage of this equipment.
z
It has been said, “ The best safety device is an informed, careful operator.” We ask you to be that kind of operator. It is the operator’s responsibility to read and understand all safety and operating instructions in the
manual and to follow them. Accidents can be avoided.
z
Working with unfamiliar equipment can lead to careless injuries. Read
this manual, and the manual for your tractor, before assembly or operating, to acquaint yourself with the machines. If this machine is used by any
person other than you, or is loaned or rented, it is the finishing mower
owner’s responsibility to make certain that owner's manual be available to
the operator prior to operating:
1- Reads and understands the operator’s manuals.
2- Is instructed in safe and proper use.
z
Know your controls and how to stop tractor, engine, and the mower quickly
in an emergency. Read this manual and the one provided with your tractor.
z
Train all new personnel and review instructions frequently with existing
workers. Be certain only a properly trained and physically able person will
operate the machinery. A person who has not read and understood all
operating and safety instructions is not qualified to operate the machine.
An untrained operator exposes himself and bystanders to possible serious injury or death. If the elderly are assisting with farm work, their physical limitations need to be recognized and accommodated.

z
z
z
z
z
Never operate the tractor and mower until you have read and completely understand this
manual, the Tractor Operator’s Manual, and each of the safety messages found on the safety
signs on the tractor and mower.
Personal protection equipment including hardhat, safety glasses, safety shoes, and gloves
are recommended during assembly, installation, operation, adjustment, maintenance, repairing, removal, or moving the implement. Do not allow long hair, loose fitting clothing, or
jewelry to be around equipment.
PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO LOUD NOISE MAY CAUSE PERMANENT HEARING
LOSS! Tractors with or without mowers attached can often be noisy enough to cause
permanent, partial hearing loss. We recommend that you wear hearing protection on a
full-time basis if the noise in the operator’s position exceeds 80 db. Noise over 80 db on
a long-term basis can cause severe hearing loss. Noise over 90 db adjacent to the
operator over a long-term basis may cause permanent, total hearing loss. NOTE: Hearing loss from loud noise (from tractors, chain saws, radios, and other such sources close
to the ear) is cumulative over a lifetime without hope of natural recovery.
Operate the mower only with a tractor equipped with an approved Roll-Over-Protective
System (ROPS). Always wear your seat belt. Serious injury of even death could result
from falling off the tractor — particularly during a turnover when the operator could be
pinned under the ROPS or the tractor.
Clear area to be cut of stones, branches or other debris that might be thrown, causing
injury or damage.
Operate only in daylight or good artificial light.
Ensure mower is properly mounted, adjusted and in good operating condition.
Ensure that all safety shielding and safety signs are properly installed and in good condition.
STARTING AND STOPPING SAFETY

12
Check the tractor master shield over the PTO stub shaft. Make sure it is in good condition and fastened securely to the tractor. Purchase a new shield if old shield is damaged
or missing.
All tractors that are not equipped with a “live” power takeoff (PTO) need to be equipped
with an over-running PTO clutch. These are available through most farm equipment stores.
NOTE: The addition of an over-running PTO clutch may change the length of the PTO
driveline required. Pay extra attention to the instructions on the PTO driveline Installation. Be sure that the driveline system guarding is adequate.
Mower operating power is supplied from tractor PTO. Refer to your tractor manual for
PTO engagement and disengagement instructions. Know how to stop tractor and mower
quickly in case of an emergency.
When engaging PTO, the engine RPM should always be at idle speed. Once engaged
and ready to start cutting, raise PTO speed to 540 RPM and maintain throughout cutting
operation.
OPERATIONAL SAFETY

The use of this equipment is subject to certain hazards that cannot be
protected against by the mechanical means or product design. All operators of this equipment must read and understand this entire manual, paying particular attention to safety and operating instructions, prior to using.
If there is something in this manual you do not understand, ask your supervisor, or your dealer, to explain it to you.
Most accidents occur because of neglect or carelessness. Keep all helpers and bystanders at least several hundred feet from an operating finishing mower. Only properly trained people should operate this machine.
When machine is operated in populated areas where thrown objects could
injure persons or property, operation must be stopped when anyone
comes within several hundred feet.
The majority of the accidents involve entanglement on the driveline, injury
of bystanders by the objects thrown by the rotating blades, and operators
being knocked off the tractor by low hanging limbs and then being run
over by the mower. Accidents are most likely to occur with machines that
are loaned or rented to someone who has not read the owner’s manual
and is not familiar with a finishing mower.
The finishing mower is designed for use only on tractors with 540-RPM
power take off.
Install and secure all guards and shields before starting or operating.
The discharge chute, bands, flaps, driveline guards and tractor, shields
should be used and maintained in good working condition. They should
be inspected carefully, at least daily, for missing or broken cable, chain
links, shields, or guards. (Worn items must be replaced at once to reduce possibility of injury)
Disengage power takeoff (PTO) and place transmission in neutral before
attempting to start engine.
Many varied objects, such as wire, cable, rope, or chains, can become
entangled in the operating parts of the mower. These items could then
swing outside the housing at greater velocities than the blades. Such a
situation is extremely hazardous. Inspect the cutting area for such objects before mowing. Remove any like objects from the site.

Never allow the cutting blade to contact such items. Cut material higher
at first, allowing finishing mower to clear hidden objects. Never assume
an area is clear. Always Check!
Always stop the tractor, disengage PTO, set brake, shut off the tractor
engine, remove the ignition key, lower implement to the ground and allow
cutter blades to come to a complete stop before dismounting tractor.
Never leave equipment unattended with the tractor running.
Never place hands or feet under mower with tractor engine running or
before you are sure all motion has stopped. Stay clear of all moving
parts.
Do not reach or place any part of your body under equipment until it is
blocked securely.
Do not allow riders on the finishing mower or tractor at anytime. There is
no safe place for any riders.
Do not operate unless all personnel, livestock, and pets are several hundred feet away to prevent injury by thrown objects. Never direct discharge chute toward anyone.
Never operate tractor and finishing mower under trees with low hanging
limbs. Operators can be knocked off the tractor and then run over by the
rotating blades.
The rotating parts of this machine have been designed and tested for
rugged use. However, they could fail upon impact with heavy, solid objects such as steel guardrails and concrete abutment. Such impact could
cause the broken objects to be thrown outward at very high velocities. To
reduce the possibility of property damage, serious injury, or even death,
never allow the cutting blades to contact such obstacles.
Stop mower and tractor immediately upon striking an obstruction. Turn
engine off, remove key, inspect and repair any damage before resuming
operation.
Stay alert for uneven terrain, holes, rocks, and roots and other hidden
hazards. Keep away from drop-offs and hazards that could cause roll
over. Use extreme care and maintain minimum ground speed when transporting or operating on hillsides, over rough ground and when operating
close to ditches or fences. Be careful and slow down when turning sharp
corners and changing direction on slopes. Do not start or stop suddenly
on slopes. Avoid operation on steep slopes. In extremely uneven terrain,
rear wheels weights, front tractor weight, and/or tire ballast should be
used to improve stability.
OPERATIONAL SAFETY continued...
z
z
Pass finishing mower diagonally through sharp dips and avoid sharp drops
to prevent “hanging up” tractor and finishing mower. Practice will improve
your skills in maneuvering on rough terrain. Always cut down slopes,
never across the face. Always check tractor manual for proper use on
slopes.
When using a unit, a minimum 20% of tractor and equipment weight must
be on tractor front wheels. Without this weight, tractor could tip over,
causing personal injury or death. The weight may be attained with a frontend loader, front wheel weights, ballast in the tires or front tractor weights.
When attaining a minimum 20% of tractor and equipment weight on the
front wheels, you must not exceed the ROPS weight certification. Weigh
the tractor and equipment. Do not guess or estimate!
TRANSPORT SAFETY

z
Comply with state and local laws governing highway safety and movement of farm machinery on public roads.
The use of flashing amber lights is acceptable in most localities. However, some localities prohibit their use. Local laws should be checked for
all lighting and marking requirements.
At all times, when driving the tractor and equipment on the road or highway under 20mph (32kph) use flashing amber warning lights and a slow
moving vehicle (SMV) identification emblem. Do not exceed 20 mph (32
kph). Reduce speed on rough roads and surfaces.
Plan your route to avoid heavy traffic.
Always install transport locks, pins or brackets before transporting.
Do not drink and drive.
Be a safe and courteous driver. Always yield to oncoming traffic in all
situations, including narrow bridges, intersections, etc. Watch for traffic
when operating near or crossing roadways.
Turn curves or go up or down hills only at a low speed and at a gradual
steering angle. Make certain that a least 20% of the tractor’s weight is on
the front wheels to maintain safe steerage. Slow down on rough or uneven surface. Always check tractor manual for proper use on slopes.
Use extreme care and maintain minimum ground and when operating close
to ditches or fences. Be careful when turning sharp corners.
Never allow riders on either tractor or mower.

ATTACHING TO TRACTOR
WARNING
Never stand between
tractor and finishing mower
while backing up tractor
to the hitch.
STEP 1
Attach to tractor's category 1 three point hitch as described in the
Tractor's Operator’s Manual.
WARNING
Failure to install retaining clip on gearbox input shaft would allow driveline to swing freely if bolt is sheared causing possible injury or death.
STEP 2
Determine if the PTO shaft needs to be shortened.
NOTE:
Due to the many variations in the tractor hitch points and distances between equipment gearbox input shaft and tractor PTO out put shafts,
some combinations may require PTO shafts to be shortened as described by the following steps.
STEP 3
Raise and lower finishing mower in order to locate the shortest distance
between equipment gearbox input shaft and tractor PTO output shaft.
With the finishing mower in the shortest distance position shut down the
tractor and SECURELY BLOCK FINISHING MOWER IN POSITION.
STEP 4
Pull apart PTO shaft and attach outer section to tractor PTO output
shaft. NOTE: Be sure to pull on PTO shaft section to ensure yoke has
locked into place.
16
ATTACHING TO TRACTOR continued....
STEP 5
Place and hold inner PTO shaft section next to outer section and check
if PTO shaft is too long. Each section should end approximately 3
inches short of reaching u-joint shield on the opposite section. If the
shaft is too long measure 3 inches back from each u-joint shield and
mark the other shaft section. Be sure to do this for both PTO shaft
halves. NOTE: Do not cut PTO shaft sections at this time.
STEP 6
Raise finishing mower and remove blocking. Raise and lower finishing
mower in order to locate the longest distance between equipment input
shaft and the tractor PTO output shaft. With the finishing mower in the
longest distance position shut down the tractor and SECURELY BLOCK
THE FINISHING MOWER IN POSITION.
STEP 7
As in step 5 hold PTO shaft sections together and check for a minimum
of 6 inches of overlap. If PTO shaft has been marked for cutting the
overlap is the distance measured between the two marks. If the PTO
shaft has less than a 6 inch overlap, DO NOT USE. Contact your authorized King Kutter Dealer.
NOTE
If the PTO shaft length is too long go to SIZING PTO SHAFT (pg. 18)
STEP 8
Apply any multi-purpose grease to the outside of the male (inner) PTO
shaft section. Assemble PTO shaft and install on finishing mower and
tractor.
WARNING - Failure to install retaining clip on gearbox input shaft would allow
driveline to swing freely if bolt is sheared causing possible injury or death.
STEP 9
Pull on tractor side of PTO shaft yoke to be sure it has locked in place.
Make certain PTO shaft shielding is in place and good working condition.
STEP 10
The PTO shaft shield is a non-rotating design and must be secured
prior to equipment use. Using the chain on each yoke shield attach to a
fixed object on the tractor and equipment ends that will not allow the
PTO shaft shield to rotate during operation.
17
SIZING PTO SHAFT
STEP 1
Cutting the PTO shaft to length.
NOTE: Be sure to cut equal
lengths of each PTO shaft section.
Clamp end of PTO shaft in a vice
and cut off shield where marked.
(Figure 1-A & 1-B)
Figure 1-A
STEP 2
Using cut section of the shield as
a guide cut shaft off the same
amount. (Figure 2)
STEP 3
Repeat steps 1 and 2 for other
PTO shaft section.
Figure 1-B
STEP 4
Use a file to deburr PTO shafts.
Clean up all chips, burrs and filings from both ends of the PTO
shaft.
Note: If you shear the bolt that attaches
the PTO shaft to the gearbox replace with a grade 2 bolt only. Replacement with another grade of
bolt will void your warranty and may
cause terminal damage to the
PTO shaft, gearbox, or tractor.

Figure 2
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
This mower was designed to CUT LAWN GRASS ONLY. Use of your finishing
mower to cut any material other than lawn grass may damage the mower and
void your warranty.
CUTTING HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
To prevent blades from striking the ground your finishing mower should be set to
the highest position that will give desired grass height. By setting your mower up
this way you reduce blade wear and stress on the mower. Mowing at regular
intervals will yield far better results than periodic mowing. (i.e. weekly vs. byweekly mowing.)
STEP 1
Raise finishing mower off the ground with the tractor and SECURELY BLOCK IN
POSITION.
STEP 2
Remove pin from top of wheel fork assembly. Lower wheel fork assembly from
tail wheel arm.
STEP 3
Arrange spacers until desired cutting height is achieved. Cutting heights range
from approximately 2.0-6.0 inches in height.
STEP4
Reinstall wheel fork assembly into tail wheel arm and install keeper pin.
STEP 5
Repeat adjustment process on remaining wheel fork assemblies. NOTE: Make
sure all are adjusted to the same height for an even cut.
19
FINISHING MOWER OPERATION
STEP 1
Before each use perform the maintenance described in maintenance section
(pg# 21)
STEP2
Read, understand, and follow the information on safety training, preparation,
starting and stopping safety, operational safety, transport safety warning sections of this manual (pages 11 thru 16)
STEP 3
With tractor running, lower finishing mower to ground so that the swivel links
are parallel to the ground. This allows the free-floating hitch system to follow
the contour of the ground, thus mowing evenly on uneven terrain.
STEP 4
With the tractor at idle RPM, engage PTO and slowly advance throttle to 540
PTO RPM. NOTE: Finishing mower designed to run at 540 PTO RPM only.
STEP 5
Select a low gear for the tractor and begin to mow. Tractor ground speed is to be
controlled by gear selection only and not engine speed. Tractor ground speed
should allow finishing mower to maintain 540 PTO RPM and thus maximum blade
tip speed.
NOTE: Do not allow the tractor engine or finishing mower to bog down or stall.
This causes undue wear and tear on the mower and tractor. If this continues to
happen reduce ground speed and raise cutting height of finishing mower. Never
attempt to clean out a plugged discharge chute until the tractor has been shut
down and the mower blades have completely stopped.
STEP 6
After each use clean all debris from the top and bottom of the finishing mower.
Replace any missing or illegible safety decals. Inspect for any damaged or worn
parts and replace before next use. Store finishing mower in a dry environment.
