Training
What is LPG? LPG stands for liquefied petroleum
gas and is more commonly called propane. LPG is
a liquid fuel that is stored in a tank under pressure.
Before the liquid leaves the tank, it is converted into
a vapor. Since LPG is stored as both liquid and gas,
it may leak from joints or connections that are not
sealed properly. LPG becomes flammable when it is
mixed with air.
5
Safety
CAUTION
DANGER
This machine produces sound levels in excess
of 85 dBA at the operator’s ear and can cause
hearing loss through extended periods of
exposure.
LPG fuel is extremely flammable and vapors
are explosive.
• In case of fire take the following steps:
1. If you can safely do so, stop the flow of
gas as quickly as possible. Never put
out flame unless gas can be shut off.
2. Notify the Fire Department and clear
immediate area of all people.
3. When gas flow is stopped, put out the
fire. Usually when flow of gas is cutoff,
fire will automatically stop.
4. If gas flow cannot be immediately
stopped, direct water on tanks to keep
them cool, but Do Not put out fire.
• Storage locations and trailers should be
equipped with at least one approved
portable fire extinguisher having a
minimum capacity of 18 lb (8.2 kg) dry
chemical with a B:C rating. Do Not
use Carbon Tetrachloride extinguishers
(Pyrene etc.).
Wear hearing protection when operating this
machine.
• Inspect the area where the equipment is to be
used and remove all rocks, toys, sticks, wires,
bones, and other foreign objects which can be
thrown by the machine and may cause personal
injury to the operator or bystanders.
DANGER
LPG fuel is extremely flammable and vapors
are explosive.
A fire or explosion from LPG fuel can burn
you, others, and cause property damage.
• Never smoke around tank(s) and stay
away from an open flame or where fumes
may be ignited by a spark.
• Extinguish all sources of spark or flame
when approaching LPG tanks or mowers.
The hazard increases for enclosed trailers
or storage locations where vapor leakage
may occur and collect.
DANGER
LPG vapors and liquid escaping from the tank
may cause serious injury or death. Vapors
or liquid may cause suffocation, freezing of
tissue, or frostbite.
• Store and service the mower in a well
ventilated area.
• An approved LPG detector installed in
trailers and storage areas is recommended.
• LPG is heavier than air and may
accumulate in low lying areas, such as
ditches, drains, or pits.
• Avoid breathing of vapors.
• Keep away from vent valve.
• Keep away from eyes and skin.
• Contact trained and qualified personnel if
tank shows signs of frosted areas, makes a
hissing sound, or emits a foul odor.
• Obtain immediate medical attention if
contact occurs with vapors or liquid.
• LPG is heavier than air and may
accumulate in low lying areas, such as
ditches, drains, or pits.
• LPG tank(s) should be filled by trained
and qualified personnel ONLY.
• Never tamper with or repair the tank(s);
contact trained and qualified personnel.
• Do Not change the tank(s) when the
engine is running.
• Before disconnecting the hose(s), purge
all LPG vapors from the system, by
closing the fuel valve(s) on ALL tanks and
allowing the engine to run until it stops.
• Store the tank(s) away from heat, sparks,
or open flames.

o-rings on tank connection fitting.
functioning properly. Do Not operate unless they
are functioning properly.
– Inspect the LPG tank and the fuel connection
joint for leaks. Use the following procedure
below to detect leaks:
Inspection
It is very important to check the LPG tank and
components for wear or leaks.
◊ Apply an approved leak detector solution,
obtained from a trained and qualified LPG
distributor, or a thick non-ammonia soapy
water solution (50% non-ammonia soap
and 50% water). (A leak detector solution
that contains ammonia will cause the
fittings to corrode and leak.)
Important: Never check for leaks using an open
flame.
Important: Never use bare hands when
checking the fitting or valve. Escaping LPG
vapor and liquid freezes skin on contact.
◊ Using a small brush or spray bottle, apply
the solution around all the fittings of the
LPG tank and the fuel connection joint.
Important: Only hand tighten tank connection
fitting. Over tightening by the use of tools may
cause damage. If hand tightening does not stop
a leak, contact trained and qualified personnel
immediately.
◊ Slowly open the gas valve a half-turn.
– The LPG tank should be free of dents or
damage. If the tank show signs of dents or
damage, replace it immediately.
◊ If bubbles are detected, the joint or fitting
has a leak. Shut off the valve, tighten
the leaking connection, and slowly open
the valve again. If bubbles still appear,
Do Not use the tank. If it is safe to do
so, remove the tank from your mower;
otherwise, contact trained and qualified
personnel immediately.
– Check the valve and fitting openings for dirt
and debris.
◊ If no bubbles are detected, the LPG tank
may be used.
• Before each use:
– Visually inspect the tank, hose, and fitting and
be alert to a foul odor coming from the tank.
– Slowly open the valve all the way and listen
for a continuous hiss from the regulator, it
may indicate a leak.
• Weekly:
– Check the entire LPG fuel delivery system for
damage or deterioration.
– LPG has a rotten egg or skunk smell added
to it to help detect a gas leak. If you detect
a gas leak:
– Check the entire LPG fuel delivery system for
leaks at all joints using the same method as
described in the previous section.
◊ Turn off the LPG valve if you can safely
do so.
– Follow all the inspection checks as specified in
the two previous inspection sections.
◊ Leave the area.
• Tank Requalification:
◊ Contact trained and qualified personnel
immediately.
– USDOT (United States Department of
Transportation) regulations require LPG tanks
to be inspected, requalified, and marked within
12 years of the manufacture date and on a
regular basis thereafter. Typically this occurs
when the tank is refilled; contact a trained and
qualified LPG tank provider for more details.
– Do Not use if the hoses are abraded, damaged,
kinked, or flattened.
– Make sure the tank is securely mounted to
the mower. If the tank is loose, the hose or
fittings may leak.
– Do Not fill the LPG tank if it is beyond the
requalification period.
• With each tank change:
– Check all gauges, fittings, and valves for
damage.
– Do Not fill damaged or rusted LPG tanks.

Operation
Operation
as shown in Figure 4, and the drive levers are released,
the drive wheels are engaged in the forward direction.
Note: Determine the left and right sides of the
machine from the normal operating position.
Operator Presence Control (OPC)
Levers
Squeezing the left hand and/or right hand lever
causes the left hand and/or right hand drive wheel
respectively to slow down, stop, or reverse, depending
on how far each drive lever is “squeezed”. Squeezing
the drive levers beyond the neutral position causes
the drive wheels to engage in the reverse direction
regardless of the position of the neutral lock latches
and the speed control lever.
Located on the upper handle assembly directly above
the handle grips.
Neutral Lock Latches
Controls
Located on the upper handle assembly on the ends
of the handle grips.
When these levers are depressed, the OPC system
senses that the operator is in the normal operator's
position. When the levers are released, the OPC
system senses that the operator has moved from the
normal operating position and will kill the engine if
either the speed control lever is not in the neutral
position or the PTO is engaged (see Figure 4).
These latches allow the operator to lock the drive
levers in a “neutral” position where the drive wheels
are not engaged in either a forward or reverse
direction.
Throttle Control
Located on the control console’s right side.
The throttle is used to control engine speed. Moving
the throttle control forward will increase engine speed
and moving it to the rear will decrease engine speed.
Moving the throttle forward into the detent is full
position.
Speed Control Lever
Located in middle of control console.
The speed control lever controls the maximum
forward speed and is infinitely variable from neutral
0–6.75 mph (10.9 km/hr).

Operation
When parking on a steep slope, the wheels must be
chocked or blocked in addition to the brake being
engaged. The unit must be tied down and brake
engaged when transporting.
With a 5/8 wrench, turn both valves one turn
counterclockwise to release the drive system.
Turn clockwise to reset the drive system. Do Not
overtighten.
Park brake must be disengaged to move speed control
out of neutral or engine will kill.
Tracking Adjustment Knob
Located on the right-hand side of the rear of the fuel
tank support.
Ignition Switch
Located on the left side of the control console.
The knob can be adjusted so that machine will “track”
straight ahead with the drive levers released.
The ignition switch is used to start and stop the
engine. The ignition switch has three positions,
“Off ”, “On” and “Start”. Insert key into switch
and rotate clockwise to the “On” position. Rotate
clockwise to the next position to engage the starter
(key must be held against spring pressure in this
position). Operator must have speed control lever in
neutral, OPC levers depressed and PTO disengaged
to start engine. When engine starts, release key.
PTO Engagement Switch
Switch is located on left side of control console.
The switch must be pulled out to the “Rotate”
position to engage the blades. The switch is pushed
in to the “Stop” position to stop the blades. Operator
must have operator presence control levers depressed
when PTO is engaged or engine will stop.
Hour Meter
LPG Cylinder Brackets
Located on the front left hand side of console just
above the PTO switch.
The brackets are located on the engine deck.
The hour meter is connected to a pressure switch
installed in the engine block and it records the
number of hours that the engine has run. If ignition
switch is left on without engine running, hour meter
will not run.
The LPG cylinder brackets are used to fasten the
removable LPG tank to the mower.
Fuel Gauge
Located on the LPG fuel tank.
Note: This switch is not a low oil sensor and will not
alert the operator if the engine oil is low.
This gauge monitors the amount of liquid LPG in
the fuel tank.
Fuel Valve
Located on the LPG fuel tank.
Safety Pressure Relief Valve
The fuel valve is used to open and close the fuel
supply when the machine is not in use, during
transport to and from the jobsite, and when parked
inside a well-ventilated building.
Located on the LPG fuel tank.
Rotate the fuel valve clockwise to turn off the fuel.
Rotate fuel valve counter-clockwise to turn on the
fuel.
Important: This valve has a protective plastic
cap that should NEVER be removed. If the

pressure in the LPG tank.
Drive Wheel Release Valves
Electronic Control Unit Malfunction
Indicator
Located on the left rear corner of the hydrostatic
pumps.
Kohler EFI Units Only:
Drive wheel release valves are used to release the
hydro-static drive system to allow the machine to be
moved by hand without the engine running.
The electronic control unit (ECU) continuously
monitors operation of the EFI system. If a problem
21
Operation
or fault within the system is detected, the malfunction
indicator light (MIL) is illuminated. The MIL is the
light located in the right console panel to the right of
the throttle control. Follow the troubleshooting steps
outlined in the Kohler engine operator’s manual if the
MIL is illuminated.
2. Place the throttle in the “SLOW” position.
3. Turn ignition switch to “Start” position. Release
the switch as soon as the engine starts.
Important: Do Not crank the engine
continuously for more than ten seconds at
a time. If the engine does not start, allow a
60 second starter cool-down period between
starting attempts. Failure to follow these
guidelines can burn out the starter motor.
Pre-Start
LPG tanks supplied from Exmark Do Not contain
LPG fuel for shipping reasons and safety. Have the
LPG tanks filled by trained and qualified personnel.
For best results, use clean, fresh HD5 grade propane.
Note: It is helpful to have the left and right
neutral lock latches locked in neutral when starting
the engine. Refer to Neutral Lock Latches
section in Controls.
Do Not allow the LPG tanks to be overfilled.
Overfilling LPG tanks builds excess pressure within
the tank which causes the relief valve to open.
Engaging the PTO
DANGER
Make sure you understand the controls, their
locations, their functions, and their safety
requirements.
The rotating blades under the mower deck are
dangerous. Blade contact can cause serious
injury or kill you.
Refer to the Maintenance section and perform all the
necessary inspection and maintenance steps.
Do Not put hands or feet under the mower or
mower deck when the blades are engaged.
Operating Instructions
DANGER
Important: If at anytime you sense something
is wrong with the LPG equipment, stop the
mower in a safe location and turn the mower off.
If you can safely do so, close the fuel valve and
try to find the cause; otherwise, get away from
the mower and contact trained and qualified
personnel immediately.
An uncovered discharge opening will allow
objects to be thrown in an operator’s or
bystander’s direction. Also, contact with the
blade could occur. Thrown objects or blade
contact can cause serious injury or death.
Never operate the mower with the discharge
deflector raised, removed, or altered unless there
is a grass collection system or mulch kit in place
and working properly.
Open the Fuel Valve
1. Slowly open the fuel valve to equalize the pressure
in the tank. The fuel valve is located on the RH
side of the LPG tank. If the fuel valve is opened
too quickly, the pressure relief valve is equipped
with a back pressure check valve that will shut off
the fuel supply. If this happens, close the fuel
valve completely and wait five seconds. Slowly
open the fuel valve.
2. Rotate the fuel valve counter-clockwise to turn on
the fuel. If leaks are detected, refer to the leak
information in the Inspection section in Safety.
The PTO switch engages the cutting blades. Be sure

Transporting
• Securely fasten the machine to the trailer with
straps, chains, cables, or ropes. If possible, both
front and rear straps should be directed down and
outward from the machine.
Transporting a Unit
WARNING
• Do Not rely solely on the parking brake to hold
the machine on the trailer.
Loading the mower onto a trailer without strong
enough or properly supported ramps could be
dangerous. The ramps could collapse causing
the unit to fall, which could cause injury.
• Use proper ramps that are secured to the
truck or trailer.
• Keep feet and legs out from under the unit
when loading and unloading.
• If necessary, use assistance when loading.
• Be sure that the trailer has all necessary lighting
and marking as required by law and use a safety
chain.
Use full width ramps when loading the machine.
Consult the NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas
Code for additional information regarding LPG
transportation.
• Be sure the fuel valve is closed.
• Place spare LPG tank(s) in a DOT approved
storage cage.
– Transport tanks in an upright, vertical and
secure position to minimize movement,
tipping, or physical damage relative to other
tanks or to the storage cage while in transit.
– Place tanks so that valves, fittings, or gauges
are protected from physical damage during
transport.
• Place tank(s) in a well-ventilated trailer.
• Do Not store the tank(s) or machine with
tank(s) in an area where the temperature can rise
above 120°F (49°C). If the temperature exceeds
approximately 160°F (71°C), the tank will release
highly flammable propane vapor. See Preparation

Proposition 65 Warning
Check Engine Oil Level
Service Interval: Before each use or daily
Battery posts, terminals, and related
accessories contain lead and lead
compounds, chemicals known to the State of
California to cause cancer and reproductive
harm. Wash hands after handling.
1. Stop engine and wait for all moving parts to stop.
Make sure unit is on a level surface.
2. Check with engine cold.
3. Clean area around dipstick. Remove dipstick
and wipe oil off. Reinsert the dipstick according
to the engine manufacturer's recommendations.
Remove the dipstick and read the oil level.
Allowing batteries to stand for an extended period of
time without recharging them will result in reduced
performance and service life. To preserve optimum
battery performance and life, recharge batteries in
storage when the open circuit voltage drops to 12.4
volts.
4. If the oil level is low, wipe off the area around the
oil fill cap, remove cap and fill to the “FULL”
mark on the dipstick. Exmark 4-Cycle Premium
Engine Oil is recommended; refer to the Engine
Owner's manual for an appropriate API rating
and viscosity. Do Not overfill.
Note: To prevent damage due to freezing, battery
should be fully charged before putting away for
winter storage.
Important: Do Not operate the engine with the
oil level below the “LOW” (or “ADD”) mark on
the dipstick, or over the “FULL” mark.
Check the voltage of the battery with a digital
voltmeter. Locate the voltage reading of the battery in

• Adjust Neutral Control Linkages:
1. Raise the rear of the machine up onto jack
stands high enough to raise the drive wheels
off of the ground.
2. Start the engine and move the throttle ahead
to the full throttle position. Place the neutral
lock latches in the “forward” position as
shown in Figure 4. Release the park brake
and move the speed control lever to the
“mid-speed” position.
5. Speed Control Linkage
6. Adjust the neutral control linkage until
the respective drive wheel stops when the
lever is pulled against the neutral spring
(neutral position). Turn the adjusting bolt
approximately 1/4 turn clockwise if the
wheel is turning in reverse or turn the bolt
approximately 1/4 turn counterclockwise if
the wheel is turning forward. Release the
drive lever to the forward drive position and
squeeze back into the neutral position. Check
to see if the wheel stops. If not, repeat the
above adjustment procedure.
Note: The OPC levers must be held down
and the park brake must be disengaged
whenever the speed control lever is moved
out of neutral or the engine will kill.
3. Squeeze the respective drive lever until an
increased resistance is felt (pin is at the end of
the slot), this is where neutral should be.
4. Pull the drive lever(s) into reverse. Release
the drive lever(s) until extra reverse spring
resistance is gone (pin still at end of slot).
If the wheel stops, then go to step 8. If the

spring. The gap between spring coils to
be minimum 1/32 inch (.8 mm).
• Adjust Hydro Control Linkages:
Repeat above adjustments if necessary.
1. Place the speed control lever in the “neutral”
position. This adjustment is again made with
rear of machine on jack stands and engine
running at full throttle. OPC levers will have
to be held down and the park brake must be
disengaged whenever speed control levers are
moved out of the neutral position.
3. Place the speed control lever in neutral. Adjust
the right side linkage by turning the quick track
knob counterclockwise until the tire begins to
rotate forward. Begin to retighten the knob
clockwise about 1/4 turn at a time, stopping
to move the speed control forward and back
to neutral. Recheck the drive wheel rotation
to see if further adjustment is necessary.
Note: The neutral lock latches should be
“unlocked” and in the forward position.
4. The spring that keeps tension on the knob
should normally not need adjustment.
However, if adjustment is needed, adjust to
where length of spring is about 1 inch (2.5 cm)
between the washers. Adjust spring length by
turning nut at front of spring.
2. Loosen the front nut on left hydro control
linkage as shown in Figure 19. Turn the rear
control linkage adjusting nut counterclockwise
until wheel rotates forward. Turn the rear nut
of left control linkage clockwise 1/4 of a turn
at a time, stopping to move the speed control
forward and back to neutral, until left wheel
stops rotating forward.
• Drive Lever Linkage Adjustment:
1. With rear of machine still on jack stands and
engine running at full throttle, disengage the
park brake and move the speed control lever
to the midway position. Move the respective
drive lever upward/rearward until it reaches
the neutral position and engage neutral lock
latches (Figure 20). If the tire rotates in either
direction, the length of the drive lever link will
need to be adjusted.
Turn the rear nut an additional 1/2 turn and
tighten the front nut making sure not to put
a bind on the linkage. Make sure flat part of
linkage is perpendicular to pin part of swivel
(see Figure 19).

After adjusting the left hydro control linkage,
move the speed control lever to the mid-speed
position and then back to the neutral position.
Recheck the left drive wheel rotation to see if
further adjustment is necessary–be sure the
speed control lever is in the neutral position.
2. Adjust the linkage length by loosening the jam
nuts at the top end of the linkage and rotating
the linkage in the ball joints. Lengthen the
linkage if the tire is turning in reverse and
shorten the linkage if the tire is creeping
forward. Tighten the jam nuts. Release and
re-engage the neutral lock latch checking that

the tire stops. Continue this process until the
tire is at a complete stop.
3. Pull the drive lever(s) into reverse. Release
the drive lever(s) until extra reverse spring
resistance is gone (pin still at end of slot). If
the wheel stops, then go to step 8 of Adjust
Neutral Control Linkages procedure. If
the wheel turns while holding the drive lever
in neutral, then neutral control linkages need
to be adjusted (see step 5 in Adjust Neutral
Control Linkages procedure).
4. Make this adjustment for both sides.
5. Stop engine and wait for all moving parts
to stop. Raise rear of machine, remove jack
stands, and carefully lower machine to the
ground.

as operation with a sulky on steep slopes, a higher
spring force may be required on the hydro pump
control arms to prevent the drive system from
stalling.
2. For a heavier drive setting, relocate the spring
anchor link as shown in Figure 21. The spring
anchor links are located under the engine deck on
the left and right hand sides.
Note: In “medium” or “heavy duty” positions,
the drive lever forces at the upper handle will also
be increased.
