3. Precautions Before Operating Your Tractor
your local Cub Cadet Yanmar dealer for technical
assistance.
4. Always fasten the seat belt while operating the
tractor with the Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) up.
Check the seat belt for any damage. Replace the
damaged seat belt immediately. Contact your
local Cub Cadet Yanmar dealer for technical
assistance.
Do not use the seat belt if the foldable Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS) is in the folded
position or the tractor does not have the RollOver Protective Structure (ROPS).
1. Understand the performance and limitations of
your tractor. Carefully study this operator’s
manual and learn the instructions in it before
operating or servicing your tractor. Keep the
Operator’s Manual in an easily accessible place.
2. Strictly follow the statements given in the
DANGER, CAUTION and WARNING safety
decals attached to the tractor.
3. Do not operate the tractor with the Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS) in the folded
position.
Keep the seat belt fastened while operating the
tractor with the Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) up. This practice will reduce the
possibility of injury or death in the event of rollover accident.
If the Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) has
been removed for any reason, be sure to reinstall
all the associated parts before operating the
tractor.
Do not alter the Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS). The altered Roll-Over Protective
Structure (ROPS) may fail to provide the
designed protection.
Replace the damaged Roll-Over Protective
Structure (ROPS) immediately. Contact your
local Cub Cadet Yanmar dealer for technical
assistance.
The foldable Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) may be temporarily folded down when
absolutely necessary for areas with height
limitations. Remember that when the Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS) is in the folded
position, the Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) does not provide operator protection and
the seat belt should not be worn.
For operator safety, always keep the Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS) in the upright and
locked position.
NEVER alter or repair the Roll-Over Protective
Structure (ROPS). Welding, bending, drilling,
grinding, or cutting may weaken the Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS) structure. Contact
5. Check overhead clearance carefully before
driving under power lines, wires, bridges or low
hanging tree branches, before entering or leaving
building, or in any other situation where the
operator and/or Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) may be struck, which could result in
serious injury.
6. Make sure that any person (other than a usual
operator) who will operate the tractor studies this
operator’s manual before operation. Know the
controls and how to stop the machine quickly.
7. Make sure that any person or obstacle is not
under or around the tractor before and during
operation. Be sure to maintain sufficient
overhead clearance above the tractor.
8. Do not operate your tractor and/or implement
installed to it while you are under the influence of
alcohol, drug, medicine or controlled
substance(s) or when you are not fit for operation
of your tractor.
9. For operation, wear close-fitting clothing. When
operating the tractor or working around the
tractor, do not wear loose-fitting clothes or
jewelry, or baggy or damaged clothing. When
caught by a moving part of the tractor, an
accident can result. Cut-off pants or shorts do not
provide protection against flying debris. Never
operate the tractor in bare feet, sandals, or

1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
14. Use the handholds and running board steps
when getting on and off the tractor to help prevent
accidental falls. Keep the running boards clear of
mud and debris.
15. Only use the implements that satisfy the
requirements in this manual or are approved by
your Cub Cadet Yanmar dealer. (See “4.
IMPLEMENT CAPACITIES”)
16. When using front or rear mounted implements,
install an appropriate weight(s) to the front or rear
of your tractor to prevent upsetting of the tractor.
If you choose to use the front loader, mount an
implement or ballast to the 3-point hitch in order
to get the tractor to stabilize. Observe the
instructions about safety in the manual for the
implement to be used.
17. Remember that a narrower tread width can lead
to greater possibility of upsetting of the tractor. To
positively stabilize your tractor, select a maximum
possible tread width appropriate for your intended
application. (For details, see the “Wheel
Adjustment” on page 12-2)
18. Do not attempt to modify your tractor.
Modification can deteriorate the performance
and/or safety of your tractor, possibly leading to
personal injury or property damage.
sneakers. Wear additional protections including
non-slip safety boots or shoes, and safety
goggles and gloves, etc. as appropriate or
required by currently applicable local laws and
regulations. Wear ear protection in a noisy
environment to prevent hearing damage and
reduce operator fatigue.
10. NEVER allow a passenger on any portion of the
tractor.
11. Remain seated in the operator’s station when
operating the tractor.
12. Make sure that the brakes, clutch and other
mechanical components are free from
misadjustment and excessive wear. Replace any
excessively worn or damaged component
immediately. At regular intervals, check that all
the nuts, bolts and screws are appropriately
tightened. (For details, see “MAINTENANCE”)
13. Always keep your tractor clean. Dust, grease or
grass clippings accumulated on your tractor can
lead to fire accidents or personal injury.
4. Safe Practices for Operating Your Tractor
1. Starting Your Tractor
1. Remain seated in the operator’s station when
starting the engine, or actuating the levers or
controls. Do not start the engine or operate
controls while standing beside the tractor.
2. Before starting the engine, make sure that all the
levers are in the neutral positions, the parking
brake is engaged securely, and the clutch and
the Power Take Off (PTO) are disengaged.
3. Always keep the seat belt fastened around your
waist whenever the Roll-Over Protective
Structure (ROPS) is in the upright and locked
position.
4. If you must start the tractor where there is a
height limitation, as soon as possible return the
Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) to the
upright and locked position and fasten the seat
belt.
5. Start the engine of your tractor only by using the
starter key switch. Do not attempt to start the
tractor engine by short-circuiting across the
starter solenoid terminals with a jumper wire, or
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
by bypassing the safety start switch. This defeats
the safety interlock circuit and the tractor may
begin to move and/or the Power Take Off (PTO)
shafts may begin to rotate, possibly leading to
personal injury or property damage.
6. Do not run or idle the engine in a confined area
that is poorly ventilated or not ventilated at all.
The engine emits carbon monoxide gas that is
colorless, odorless and can cause death.
7. Before operation, check that all the safety
features are functioning correctly. Never tamper
with safety devices. Check their proper operation
regularly. Contact your Cub Cadet Yanmar dealer
if safety devices malfunction.

1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
3. Considerations for Safety of Children
8. Avoid accidental contact with control pedals while
the engine is running, as this can cause
unexpected movement of the tractor.
9. Never leave a running machine unattended.
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert
to the presence of children. Children are often
attracted to the machine. They do not understand the
dangers. Never assume they will remain where you
last saw them.
2. Working with Your Tractor
1. Tow an implement only with the drawbar. Do not
hitch via the axle housing. The tractor can upset,
leading to serious injury or death. Make certain
the drawbar pin is locked in place.
2. Any towed vehicle with a total weight exceeding
that of the tractor should be equipped with its own
braking system that is operational from the tractor
seat.
3. Make sure that all the covers and guards are in
position. Replace any missing or damaged cover
immediately.
4. Before turning or when traveling on a rough
terrain, or before stopping, decrease the tractor
speed in order to prevent upsetting.
5. Use extra caution when operating over rough
ground, when crossing ditches or slopes, and
when turning corners.
6. Do not attempt to turn with the differential lock
engaged. Attempting to turn the tractor while the
differential lock is engaged can lead to a roll-over.
7. Stay clear of ditches, holes, embankments or
ponds. A hazard of tractor upset can occur more
easily if the ground is soft or wet. Before entering
an area covered with tall grass, walk the area to
detect any obstacles.
8. Always watch where you are going, especially at
blind corners, trees, or other objects that can
obscure your vision. Remain alert when you are
approaching the end of a row, trees or any
obstacle.
9. When two or more people are working in one
area, always keep in good communication with
each other.
10. Do not get on or off a moving tractor.
11. Make certain all tractor lights are illuminated
when operating at night.
1. Keep children out of the operating area and in the
watchful care of an adult other than the operator.
2. Be alert if a child enters the work area, stop your
tractor immediately.
3. Never allow a child to ride on the tractor. They
may fall off and be seriously injured or interfere
with safe machine operation.
4. Never allow children under 16 years old to
operate the machine. Children 16 years and over
should only operate machine under close
parental supervision and proper instruction.
5. Be extremely careful when backing the tractor.
Before and during backing, look back and
downward. A child may be in your path.
6. Use extra care when approaching blind corners,
shrubs, trees or other objects that may obscure
your vision of a child or other hazard.
7. Never allow a child to play on the tractor or
implement.
8. Keep children away from hot or running engines.
They may suffer burns.
9. Park your tractor on a solid, flat and level place.
Engage the parking brake securely, remove the
starter key switch to prevent unauthorized
operation. If parking on a slope is unavoidable,
park the tractor across the slope and chock the
wheels.

Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
5. Operating Your Tractor on Slopes
DO NOT:
On a slope, the tractor is less stable and more prone
to tip-over, possibly leading to serious injury or death.
Remain very cautious when your tractor is on any
slope.
●Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches or
embankments. The mower could suddenly turn
over if a wheel goes over the edge of a cliff or ditch,
or if an edge caves in.
WARNING
●Before approaching a slope, select an
appropriate speed setting. Be sure to run the
tractor at a lower speed on slopes. NEVER
attempt a shift change action on a slope.
Otherwise, the tractor can suddenly go
downhill out of control.
●On a slope, do not set the range shift lever to
the “N” (neutral) position.
●When climbing or descending a slope, do not
disengage the clutch or shift the gears.
Disengaging the clutch or shifting the gears to
neutral position can cause the tractor to be out
of control.
●Suddenly starting the tractor on an uphill can
cause the front wheels to jump off the ground,
and this situation poses an extreme danger. To
avoid this problem, run the engine at a lower
speed, and gently start the tractor.
●Do not park the tractor on a slope. If parking on
a slope is unavoidable, chock the tires, and
engage the parking brake securely.
A2019005
DO:
●Operate up and down slopes, not across.
●Remove obstacles such as rocks, limbs, etc.
●Watch for holes, ruts or bumps. Uneven terrain
could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide
such obstacles.
●Place the transmission in the low range. When
climbing or descending slopes. Always keep
machine in gear when going down slopes to take
advantage of engine braking action.
●Keep all movement on the slopes slow and
gradual. Do not make sudden changes in speed or
direction. Rapid engagement or braking could
cause the front of the machine to lift and rapidly flip
over backwards which could cause serious injury.
●Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If tires lose
traction, disengage the Power Take Off (PTO) and
proceed slowly straight down the slope.
●To avoid upset, move backward up a steep slope.
If backing on the slope is not comfortable, do not
attempt to continue. Avoid an extremely steep
slope.
●When moving forward to escape from a ditch, or
deep mud, or when traveling on a steep slope, the
risk of the tractor upsetting backward is high.
Always move backward to escape these situations.
In the four-wheel drive mode, special caution is
needed to avoid false confidence in the tractor’s
ability to climb slopes.
●To improve stability on a slope, select the widest
possible tread. Observe the instructions for
appropriate ballasting. (For details, see “TIRES,
WHEELS AND BALLAST”)

1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
6. Traveling on a Road
8. Avoid engaging differential lock while traveling on
a road. It may cause you to lose control of the
tractor.
9. While traveling on a road, do not suddenly turn
the steering wheel. Such an action can lead to
loss in the stability of the tractor, and can cause
an extremely dangerous situation.
10. While on a road, do not attempt to operate an
implement. During transportation, put the 3-point
hitch control lever in its raised position and lock it
with the position stop knob. Do not fully close the
hydraulic flow control / stop knob to hold an
implement in the raised position while the tractor
is traveling with the implements.
Doing so could cause damage to the hydraulic lift
circuit.
11. When towing another implement, connect a
safety chain to the implement and mount a Slow
Moving Vehicle (SMV) emblem on it.
1. Disengagement of the 4-wheel drive is
recommended.
2. Remember that the braking characteristics differ
between the two and four wheel drive modes. Be
aware of the current drive mode and use
carefully.
3. Before turning, always slow down the tractor.
High-speed turn may cause the tractor to tip over.
4. When traveling on a road, be sure that the Slow
Moving Vehicle (SMV) emblem is on the tractor
and is clearly visible. Use the hazard lights and
turn lights as required by the currently effective
local laws or regulations.
5. Strictly observe all the currently effective local
traffic and safety laws and regulations.
6. Turn ON the headlights as required by the
currently effective local laws or regulations.
7. Always travel at a speed that allows you to
maintain control of the tractor.
7. Safe Practices for Parking Your Tractor
3. Do not park on a steep slope. Rather, park on
solid, flat, level ground whenever possible. If
parking on a slope is unavoidable, park the
tractor across the slope, and lower the implement
to the ground and chock the wheels.
4. Allow the tractor to cool at least 5 minutes before
storing.
1. Disengage the Power Take Off (PTO), lower the
implement to the ground, shift all the levers to
their neutral positions, engage the parking brake
securely, shut down the engine and remove the
starter key switch.
2. Before leaving your tractor, be sure the tractor is
completely stopped.
1-7
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
8. Operating the Power Take Off (PTO)
3. Before installing or operating Power Take Off
(PTO)-driven implement, carefully study the
manufacturer’s operator’s manual and the safety
decals on the implement.
4. When installing stationary Power Take Off (PTO)drive implements, be sure to engage the parking
brake securely and securely place chocks in front
and behind the rear wheels. Do not approach or
access any rotating component.
1. Before getting off the tractor, connecting/
disconnecting an implement, adjusting, cleaning
or servicing a Power Take Off (PTO)-driven
implement, make sure that all the moving
components are at a standstill.
2. Ensure that the Power Take Off (PTO) shaft
cover is always in place. Replace the Power Take
Off (PTO) shaft cap only when the shaft is at a
standstill.
9. Using the 3-Point Hitch
3. While on a road, do not attempt to operate an
implement. During transportation, put the 3-point
hitch control lever in its raised position and lock it
with the position stop knob.
Do not fully close the hydraulic flow control / stop
knob to hold an implement in the raised position
while the tractor is traveling with the implements.
Doing so could cause damage to the hydraulic lift
circuit.
1. Use the 3-point hitch only in conjunction with the
implement that is specifically designed for use
with the 3-point hitch.
2. Before using a 3-point hitch mounted implement,
the appropriate counterbalance may need to be
installed on the front of the tractor.
10. Safety Frame (Roll-Over Protective Structure) (ROPS) Precautions
3. Never secure any parts on the main frame or
attach the safety frame with anything other than
the special fasteners specified.
4. Never attach ropes, chains, or cables to the RollOver Protective Structure (ROPS) for pulling
purposes.
5. Although the Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) provides you the maximum protection
possible, never take unnecessary risks.
Your tractor is equipped with a Roll-Over Protective
Structure (ROPS) which must be maintained in a fully
functional condition. Check overhead clearance
carefully before driving under power lines, wires,
bridges or low hanging branches, before entering or
leaving buildings, or in any other situation where the
operator and/or Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) may be stuck, which could result in serious
injury.
1. Never modify the Roll-Over Protective Structure
(ROPS) in any way.
2. Never attempt to straighten or reweld any part of
the main frame or retaining brackets that have
been damaged. Doing so may weaken the
structure and endanger your safety.
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
1-8
1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
11. Safe Practices for Servicing Your Tractor
10. Carefully loosen the radiator cap to the first stop,
and allow excessive pressure to escape, and only
then remove the radiator cap. If the tractor is
equipped with a coolant reserve tank, add coolant
or water to the reserve tank, not to the radiator
(See “Checking the Cooling System”).
Before starting any servicing work, park your tractor
on solid, level ground, engage the parking brake
securely, lower the implement to the ground, set all
the levers to the neutral position, shut down the
engine and remove the starter key switch.
1. Always keep a first-aid kit and a fire extinguisher
readily available.
2. Before accessing the engine, muffler, radiator or
other possibly hot components, wait until the
tractor has fully cooled off.
11. Before working on or around electric
components, first disconnect the battery ground
cable.
12. To prevent a spark occurring from short-circuit,
disconnect the battery grounding (–) terminal first
and reconnect last.
3. Use extreme care in handling gasoline and diesel
fuels. They are extremely flammable and the
vapors are explosive. Use only an approved
container.
4. Be sure to shut down the engine before refueling.
After refueling, replace fuel cap securely and
wipe off any spilled fuel before starting the engine
as it may cause a fire or explosion.
5. Do not smoke while refueling. Keep any spark or
open flame away from the fuel tank.
6. Never refuel the machine indoors because fuel
vapors will accumulate in the area.
7. Never store the fuel container or machine inside
where there is an open flame or spark, such as a
gas hot water heater, space heater or furnace.
8. Do not smoke while working around the battery.
Keep any spark or open flame away from the
battery. The battery emits hydrogen and oxygen
gas, in particular, during recharging and can pose
a hazard of explosion.
13. The operator must not mount a tire onto a rim.
Only qualified personnel should do this task.
14. Always keep the tires at a correct pressure level.
Do not exceed the recommended tire pressure
specified in the operator’s manual.
15. Keep the tractor securely supported while
changing the wheels or adjusting the wheel tread
width. Be sure to tighten the wheel bolts at the
specified tightening torque.
9. Prior to “jump starting” a tractor that has a fully
depleted battery, read and follow all the
instructions in the “7. OPERATING THE
ENGINE”.
1-9
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
19. Do not change the engine governor settings or
overspeed the engine. Excessive engine speeds
are dangerous.
20. Observe proper disposal laws and regulations.
Prior to disposal, determine the proper method to
dispose of waste from your local Environmental
Protection Agency. Recycling centers are
established to properly dispose of materials in an
environmentally safe fashion.
21. Use proper containers when draining fluids. Do
not use food or beverage containers that may
mislead someone into drinking from them.
Properly dispose of the containers immediately
following the draining of fluids.
22. DO NOT pour oil or other fluids into the ground,
down a drain or into a stream, pond, lake or other
body of water. Observe Environmental Protection
Agency regulations when disposing of oil, fuel,
coolant, brake fluid, filters, batteries, tires and
other harmful waste.
23. We do not recommend the use of a pressure
washer or garden hose to clean your unit. They
may cause damage to electrical components;
spindles; pulleys; bearings; or the engine. The
use of water will result in shortened life and
reduce serviceability.
16. Avoid working under any hydraulically supported
devices. Such devices can settle, suddenly leak
down, or be accidentally lowered. If working
beneath the tractor, or an implement, is
unavoidable, be sure to support the tractor or
implement with appropriate stands or lift
apparatus.
17. High pressure hydraulic fluid, when released, can
penetrate human skin, possibly leading to serious
personal injury. Before disconnecting any
hydraulic line, fully release the internal pressure.
Before exerting a pressure to the hydraulic
system, make sure that all connections are tight
and all the lines, pipes and hoses are free from
fissure/crack or any other damage.
18. Check brake operation frequently. Adjust and
service as required.

DANGER
ALWAYS use the drawbar to tow an implement.
NEVER attach a load to the axle housing.
WARNING
Accident Hazard
ALWAYS decrease tractor speed before turning,
when traveling on a rough terrain or before stopping
to prevent roll-over.
ALWAYS remain alert to behaviors of children when
operating the tractor because they are usually very
curious about moving machines.
Do not attempt to turn with the differential lock
engaged. Attempting to turn the tractor while the
differential lock is engaged can lead to a roll-over.
ALWAYS remember that a child may have moved
from a point where he/she was last viewed.
ALWAYS stay clear of ditches, holes, embankments
or ponds. A roll-over can occur more easily if the
ground is soft or wet. Before entering an area
covered with tall grass, walk the area to detect any
obstacles.
ALWAYS keep children off the work area, and a
person other than the operator should always watch
them.
If any child enters the current work area, stop your
tractor immediately.
ALWAYS be extremely sure of the current travel
direction and avoid obstacles. Remain alert when
approaching the end of a row, trees or any obstacle.
NEVER allow a child to ride the moving tractor. He/
she may tamper the controls or can fall off the tractor
and be run over by the tractor.
ALWAYS maintain good communication with all
others working in the same area before and during
operation of the tractor.
NEVER allow children to operate the tractor.
NEVER allow a child to play on the tractor or
implement.
Do not get in or out of the moving tractor.
ALWAYS be extremely careful when backing the
tractor up. Before backing up, look back and below
the tractor. A child may be on your path.
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
8-1
8. OPERATING THE TRACTOR
1. Operating a New Tractor
The service life of the tractor is governed by how adequately it is handled
and maintained.
Of course, any newly manufactured tractor has been tested; however,
various parts must be broken in. Therefore, operate the tractor at low
speeds for the first 50 operating hours, and avoid heavy work or operation
before the various parts have been sufficiently run. The manner the tractor
is operated in during the breaking-in period greatly affects the effective life
of the tractor. Therefore, to develop maximum design performance and
attain the longest life of the tractor, the tractor needs to be correctly broken
in. Handle the new tractor, strictly observing the following instructions.
1. Do not run the tractor at full speed during the first 50
operating hours period
●NEVER suddenly start or brake.
●In cold weather, ALWAYS fully warm up the engine. After warm-up, start
operation of the tractor.
●NEVER run the engine at a speed higher than needed.
●On rough roads or terrains, slow the tractor down as necessary. Do not
run the tractor at a high speed.
The above-mentioned precautions apply not only to newly manufactured
tractors but also to tractors that have been actively used. Nevertheless, we
recommend that newly manufactured tractors be operated by strictly
observing these instructions / recommendations.
2. Changing the lubricating oil for the new tractor
The quality of the lubricating oil in any new tractors is very important.
Various parts on a new tractor have not been fully broken in, and are not
fully fitted with each other. As a result, small metal shavings may occur
while the new tractor is operated, and may lead to premature wear or
damage of the associated parts or components. Therefore, Cub Cadet
Yanmar recommends that the lubricating oil be changed earlier than in the
ordinary oil change schedule.
For the recommended oil change schedule, refer to the “13. MAINTENANCE”.

Protective Structure (ROPS) in the lowered (folded)
position unless the tractor needs to be operated in a
low clearance situation.
Keep the retractable seat belt fastened while operating the
tractor with the Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) in
the raised position. This practice will reduce the possibility
of injury or death in the event of roll-over accident. If the
Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) has been removed
for any reason, be sure to reinstall all the associated parts
before operating the tractor. NEVER alter the Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS). The altered Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS) may fail to provide the
designed protection. Replace the damaged Roll-Over
Protective Structure (ROPS) immediately. Contact your
local Cub Cadet Yanmar dealer for technical assistance.

2. Safely Driving the Tractor on Roads
WARNING
Avoid injury. Be cautious when driving the tractor at a
transport speed:
●We recommend that the user / operator use the turn
signal / hazard lights when traveling on public
roads. Before operating the tractor on a public
roadway, be aware of relevant state or local
regulations in effect. An implement safety lighting
kit is available from your local Cub Cadet Yanmar
dealer.
●If local laws permit road travel, use the flashing
hazard lights and Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV)
emblems when traveling on public roadways.
When operating the tractor on a road, strictly observe the
following precautions:
●ALWAYS ensure that right side and left side brakes are
equally adjusted.
●ALWAYS ensure that the Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV)
emblem and hazard lights are clean and clearly visible.
If a towed or rear-mounted implement jeopardizes
visibility of these safety devices, install the Slow Moving
Vehicle (SMV) emblem and hazard lights on the
implement.
(A) Typical example of installed Slow Moving Vehicle
(SMV) emblem
●Turn the hazard lights and headlights ON, unless
prohibited by law.
●Secure the towed implement with lock hitch pins and
safety chains.
●Drive the tractor slowly so that the tractor is under
control at all times. Slow down for travel on a slope,
rough road, sharp turns or when transporting a heavy
rear-mounted implement.
●Adjust the tread width of rear wheels to attain maximum
stability.
●Disengage the 4-wheel drive to prevent excessive tire
wear.
●NEVER coast downhill.
●Check whether the front wheel gearing is engaged.
●Remember that the braking characteristics differ
between the 2- and 4-wheel drive modes. ALWAYS be
aware of the current drive mode and use properly.
●ALWAYS slow down before turning. High-speed turns
may cause the tractor to tip over.
●ALWAYS ensure that the Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV)
emblem is on the tractor and is clearly visible.

8. OPERATING THE TRACTOR
●Strictly observe all the currently effective local traffic and
safety laws and regulations.
●ALWAYS travel at a speed that allows the tractor to
remain controlled and stable.
●Avoid engaging differential lock while traveling on a
road. Your tractor can lose control.
●While traveling on a road, do not suddenly turn the
steering wheel. Such an action can lead to loss in the
stability of the tractor, and can cause an extremely
dangerous situation.
●While on a road, NEVER attempt to operate an
implement. During transportation, put the 3-point hitch
control lever in its raised position and lock it with the
position stop knob. Do not fully close the hydraulic flow
control / stop knob to hold an implement in the raised
position while the tractor is traveling with the
implements.
Doing so could cause damage to the hydraulic lift circuit.
3. Pushing or Towing the Tractor

5. Operating on Slopes
WARNING
Avoid injury. Be extremely cautious when driving the
tractor on a slope:
●To increase the traction power and provide 4-wheel
braking feature, engage the 4-wheel drive lever
before driving the tractor on a slope. Remember that
although the 4-wheel drive lever greatly assists in
approach to a steep slope, there is greater
possibility of a tip over.
●To improve braking power on sloped, frozen, wet or
graveled surfaces, engage the 4-wheel drive lever.
Add ballast to the tractor as necessary and travel at
a lower speed to prevent skidding and loss of
steering control.
●While driving the tractor, do not attempt to climb a
slope that is steeper than 15 degrees.
●Even on a slope that is not steeper than 15 degrees,
do not turn or change the traveling direction, or park
square to the slope.
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
8-17
8. OPERATING THE TRACTOR
WARNING
If the clutch pedal is depressed
●Before approaching a slope, select an appropriate
speed setting. NEVER shift on a slope. Otherwise,
the tractor may suddenly go downhill and go out of
control. Be sure to travel at a lower speed on a
slope.
●On a slope, NEVER move the range shift lever to the
NEUTRAL position.
●On a slope, NEVER step on the clutch pedal.
Otherwise, the tractor may suddenly go downhill
and go out of control.
●Suddenly starting the tractor on an uphill can cause
the front wheels to jump off the ground, and this
situation poses an extreme danger. To avoid this
problem, run the engine at a lower speed and slowly
start the tractor in motion.
●NEVER park the tractor on a slope. If parking on a
slope is unavoidable, chock the tires, engage the
parking brake securely.
●On a slope, the tractor is unstable and more prone
to tip-over, possibly leading to severe injury or even
death. Remain very cautious when your tractor is on
any slope.
●To avoid tip over, move backward on a steep slope.
If backing on the slope is not comfortable, do not
attempt to continue. Avoid an extremely steep
slope.
●When exiting a ditch, deep mud or traveling on a
steep slope, the risk of the tractor roll-over is high.
In four-wheel drive mode, special caution is needed.
●Slowly move on any slope. NEVER change speed or
direction quickly.
●When climbing or descending a slope, NEVER
disengage the clutch or shift the gears. Disengaging
the clutch or shifting the gears to NEUTRAL
position can cause the tractor to lose control.
●To keep the tractor stable on a slope, ALWAYS
select the widest possible tread. Observe the
instructions for proper ballasting. (For details, see
the “12. TIRES, WHEELS AND BALLAST”)

6. About the Power Steering
WARNING
●While the engine is running on the tractor equipped
with the power steering feature, the steering wheel
can turn with a minimum force. NEVER operate the
steering wheel suddenly, especially while traveling
on a paved road. Otherwise, an accident can occur.
The power steering feature is operative only when the
engine is running. Note that when the engine is running at
a lower speed, the steering wheel will need slightly greater
force. This is considered normal operation.
IMPORTANT:
●Fully turning the steering wheel will cause the relief
valve to trip and an audible signal will sound. This
situation may be ignored only for a short duration.
NEVER operate the steering in relief for a prolonged
period.
●Turning the steering wheel while the tractor is not
running can promote damage on the tires and rims.

The drawbar has two adjusting holes that allow the user to
adjust the drawbar length.
WARNING
Avoid injury:
●Only hitch a towed load to the drawbar to avoid tipover. NEVER use the safety chain to tow a load.
■ Maximum Allowable Load on the Drawbar
The drawbar may be overloaded when it is equipped with
a very heavy unit such as a single-axle trailer. Also, the
load exerted onto the drawbar can significantly increase
depending on the tractor travel speed or quality of the
ground. Make sure that the maximum vertical load
working on the drawbar does not exceed 730 lb (330 kg).
■ Adjusting the Drawbar
NOTE:
●If the tractor is equipped with the Mid-Power Take OFF
(PTO), the drawbar cannot move forward to the
“SHORT” position.
The drawbar has two adjusting holes that allow the user to
adjust the drawbar length.

WARNING
Avoid injury:
●Only hitch a towed load to the drawbar to avoid tip
over. NEVER use the safety chain to tow a load.
IMPORTANT: Avoid damage.
●ALWAYS secure the towed implement to the drawbar.
The safety chain is intended to control the towed
implement if it is accidentally disconnected from the
drawbar.
●ALWAYS use a chain whose strength is rated greater
than the gross weight of the towed implement.
●ALWAYS replace or repair the safety chain if any of the
chain links or connectors are broken, elongated or
damaged.
1. Use appropriate adapter parts to connect the safety
chain to the tractor drawbar support and to the towed
implement. Provide sufficient slack to allow for turning.
2. Mount additional attaching points for the safety chain
on the drawbar to eliminate excessive slack as
necessary.
3. Remove and store the safety chain when it is not in
use.

●For safety purposes, any implements or trailers towed
by the tractor drawbar should be equipped with a safety
chain in case of accidental uncoupling of the implement
from the tractor. The tensile strength of the chain should
be greater than weight of the implement or trailer, fully
loaded. A chain shackle of the same or greater strength
of the safety chain can be added to the tractor drawbar
bracket. This will allow the implement or trailer safety
chain to be attached to the tractor. Purchase and install
the chain shackle to the drawbar bracket for safety
purposes.

■ Hydraulic Flow Control / Stop Knob
WARNING
●Lowering the 3-point hitch too fast can lead to
accident or failure.
●Adjust the hydraulic flow control / stop knob so that
the time for lowering the implement from the highest
position to the lowest position becomes 2 seconds
or longer.
●While on a road, do not attempt to operate an
implement. During transportation, put the 3-point
hitch control lever in its raised position and lock it
with the position stop knob.
Do not fully close the hydraulic flow control / stop
knob to hold an implement in the raised position
while the tractor is traveling with the implements.
Doing so could cause damage to the hydraulic lift
circuit.
The lowering speed of the lower link is governed by the
position of the hydraulic flow control / stop knob. This knob
directly controls the lowering speed of the lower link.
Also, this knob is used to stop the lower link at an intended
position.
IMPORTANT:
●When a heavy load is installed to the 3-point hitch and
the tractor runs on rough terrain, the hydraulic system
may be damaged.
(b)
(a) Turning the knob clockwise will cause the loweringspeed to decrease.
Tighten the knob by fully turning clockwise to stop the

■ Front Ballast
To improve stability and traction, add ballast as needed.
Heavy pulling and rear-mounted implements can cause
the front wheels to lift. To cope with this situation, add
ballast so that reliable steering control is maintained and
tip-over of the tractor is prevented. Remove the ballast
when no longer necessary.

■ Using Liquid Weight for the Tires
WARNING
Avoid injury:
●Installation of liquid ballast requires special
implement and training. An exploding tire can lead
to injury. Contact your local Cub Cadet Yanmar
dealer or a tire service store to do this task.
IMPORTANT: Avoid damage.
●NEVER exceed the maximum load ratings indicated on
the tires.
●ALWAYS cover rim completely with the liquid to prevent
corrosion, but do not exceed 75%. A larger amount of
the liquid causes a limited air space to be left in the tire,
and which is too small to absorb shocks, possibly
leading to damaged tire.
NOTE:
●We do not recommend that alcohol be used as the
ballast. Calcium chloride solution is heavier and less
expensive.
●A water solution of calcium chloride offers a safe,
economical ballast, and will prevent freezing. If properly
used, it will not damage tires, tubes or rims.
●A mixture of 3.5 lb of calcium chloride and approximately
1 US gal of water (0.4 kg/L) will not fully freeze at a
temperature above –50°F (–45°C).
●Fill tubeless tires at least to the valve stem height (at
least 75%). Smaller amount of the solution results in
partly exposed rims, possibly leading to corrosion of the
rim.

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
ALWAYS allow the tractor to fully cool down before
accessing the engine, muffler, radiator or other hot
components.
NEVER smoke around the battery or
during refueling. Keep sparks or open
flames away from the battery and fuel
tank. The battery emits hydrogen and
oxygen during recharging and can pose
a serious hazard.
ALWAYS park your tractor on a solid, level ground,
engage the parking brake securely, disengage the
Power Take Off (PTO) lower the implement to the
ground, set all the levers to the neutral position, shut
down the engine and remove the starter key switch
before starting any service work.
NEVER work under any hydraulically supported
devices. Such devices can settle, suddenly leak or
be accidentally lowered. ALWAYS support the tractor
securely with rugged stands or other appropriate
means.
■ Warranty and Repair of the Engine
A maintenance, inspection, repair or replacement service
of engine emission control devices and systems may be
performed at the owner’s expense by any qualified offroad engine repair shop or mechanic. Warranty repairs
must be executed by an authorized Cub Cadet Yanmar
dealer.
WARNING
NEVER inhale the emission gas.
Avoid personal injury:
●Engine emission gas contains carbon monoxide
that, if inhaled, can cause severe poisoning or even
death.
●NEVER run the engine in a poorly ventilated,
enclosed indoor space.
●To release the engine emission gas to an outdoor
area, connect an extension pipe to the engine
exhaust pipe.
●Allow fresh outside air to flow into the work space to
remove the engine emission gas from that space.

■ Checking the Cooling System
CAUTION
Avoid injury.
●ALWAYS allow radiator to cool before removing the
radiator cap. The radiator will be hot and can cause
burns. When the radiator cap is removed, pressure
build-up in the cooling system can cause the
coolant to spray out explosively.
●ALWAYS shut the engine down and allow it to cool.
●NEVER remove the radiator cap before the radiator
and the engine are sufficiently cool such that they
can be touched with bare hands.
●Loosen the radiator cap carefully to the first stop,
allowing excessive pressure to escape. Only then
remove the radiator cap. If the tractor is equipped
with a coolant reserve tank, add coolant or water to
the reserve tank, not to the radiator.

■ Refilling the Fuel Tank
IMPORTANT: Avoid damage.
●NEVER use a galvanized container to store fuel. Diesel
fuel in a galvanized container reacts with the zinc
coating in the container to generate zinc flakes. If the
fuel contains water, a zinc gel will also occur. The zinc
gel and flakes will quickly clog the fuel filter and damage
the fuel injection nozzle and fuel pump.
In cold climate, use Grade No. 1-D diesel fuel, and in
warm climate, use Grade No. 2-D diesel fuel. The cetane
number of the diesel fuel used must be 45 or higher.
When the air temperature drops below –4°F(–20°C) or the
altitude of the work site exceeds 5000 ft (1500 m), use a
diesel fuel whose cetane value is 50 or higher.
The sulfur content must not exceed 0.5 % by volume.
Less than 0.05 % is preferred.
Bio-diesel Fuels
In the United States, non-mineral oil based fuel resources
such as RME (Rapeseed Methyl Ester) and SOME
(Soybean Methyl Ester), collectively known as FAME
(Fatty Acid Methyl Esters), are being used as extenders
for mineral oil derived diesel fuels.
Cub Cadet Yanmer approves the use of bio-diesel fuels
that do not exceed a blend of 5 % (by volume) of FAME
with 95 % (by volume) of approved mineral oil derived
diesel fuel. Such bio-diesel fuels are known in the market
place as B5 diesel fuels.
WARNING
Avoid personal injury. Remember that fuel vapor is
explosive and flammable:
●Shut down the engine before refilling the fuel tank.
●NEVER smoke while handling fuel.
●Keep the fuel away from an open flame or sparks.
●Refuel outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.
●Wipe away spilled fuel immediately.
●To prevent static electric discharge, use a clean
approved non-metal fuel container.
●To prevent static electric discharge, use a clean
approved plastic funnel that has no metallic screen
mesh or filter.
IMPORTANT: Be careful to avoid damage.
●Dirt and water in the fuel can damage the engine.
●Remove dirt and debris from the fuel tank opening.
●Use clean, fresh, stabilized fuel.
●At the end of operation for the day, fill the fuel tank to
prevent condensation from occurring in the fuel tank.
●When filling the fuel tank or container use a non-metallic
funnel that has a plastic mesh strainer.

■ Recommended Engine Coolant
CAUTION
Avoid injury:
●Fluids released under pressure from the cooling
system can cause severe burns. Pressure build-up
in the cooling system can, when the radiator cap is

●Shut down the engine and allow it to cool off.
●Do not remove the radiator cap before the radiator
and the engine are sufficiently cool such that they
can be touched with bare hands. Carefully loosen
the cap to the first stop to allow the pressure to be
completely released. Only then, remove the cap
completely.
[The following coolants are recommended]
• High Quality Permanent Type Antifreeze (Ethylene
Glycol with corrosion and rust inhibitor chemicals)
Before using the coolant, study the instructions and data
on its container to be sure it is suitable for the engine.
Use a conditioned coolant, or before use, add a
conditioner to the coolant.
Prepare the coolant by mixing 50% antifreeze with 50%
distilled or deionized water, and then pour this coolant into
the radiator. This coolant is intended not only to cool the
engine but also to protect the radiator against freezing
down to a temperature of –34°F (–37°C).
Follow the instructions on the antifreeze container or
contact your local Cub Cadet Yanmar dealer for technical
assistance. NEVER exceed the maximum dilution ratio for
the coolant. Exceeding the maximum dilution ratio can
jeopardize effectiveness of the coolant.

1. Safe Practices for Storage
WARNING
Be careful to avoid injury:
●Remember that vapor from diesel fuel is explosive and flammable.
●The exhaust from the engine contains carbon monoxide that can
lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, possibly causing serious
illness or even death. To avoid the danger of poisoning from the
exhaust gas, NEVER run the engine in a closed building that is not
positively ventilated.
●NEVER wash the tractor while the engine is running.
●Run the engine as shortly as possible when moving the tractor into
and from the place of storage.
●When fuel is in the fuel tank, NEVER store the tractor in a building
where fuel vapor can come into contact with open flame or spark.
●Before storing the tractor indoors, allow the engine to cool off.
1. Preparing the Machine for Storage
If planning to store the tractor for a long period, follow the procedure
described below.
The procedure is intended to ensure that the tractor is readily prepared for
operation when it is removed from storage.
1. Repair any worn or damaged parts. Replace the parts as necessary.
Tighten any loose bolts and nuts.
2. Repair scratched or chipped metal surfaces to prevent rusting.
3. Remove grass clippings and debris from the tractor.
4. Clean below the deck and remove grass clippings and debris from
inside the chute and bagger.
5. Remove the ballast from the tractor.
6. Wash the tractor and apply wax to the metal and plastic surfaces.
7. Run the tractor for 5 minutes to dry the belts and pulleys.
8. Apply a light coat of clean engine oil to pivots and wear points to
prevent rusting.
9. Lubricate the grease fittings.
10. Check the tire pressure. Adjust the tire pressure slightly higher than
specified.
11. Change the engine oil and run the engine for about 5 minutes to
circulate the oil throughout the entire engine block and the internal
moving parts.
12. Lower any implement to the ground. Apply grease to
the exposed areas on the hydraulic cylinder piston
rods.
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual

16. STORAGE
2. Preparing the Fuel and Engine for Storage
■ Fuel
If using stabilized fuel, fully fill the fuel tank with stabilized fuel.
NOTE:
●By filling the fuel tank, the amount of air remaining in the tank decreases,
and this can help prevent deterioration of the fuel in the tank.
If stabilized fuel has not been used.
1. Park the tractor safely in a well-ventilated place.
NOTE:
●Assuming that this is the last time the tractor is operated for the season,
use all the fuel in the fuel tank.
2. Run the engine until all the fuel in the tank is used.
3. Turn the starter key switch to the OFF position.
IMPORTANT: Be very careful to avoid damage.
●In degraded fuel, varnish can occur and clog the fuel injector components
and adversely affect engine performance.
●Mix stabilizer into fresh fuel before filling the fuel tank.
4. Mix fresh fuel and fuel stabilizer in a separate container.
Observe the stabilizer manufacturer's instructions for mixing.
5. Fill the fuel tank with the stabilized fuel.
6. Run the engine for several minutes to allow the fuel-stabilizer mixture to
be circulated through the fuel system.
■ Engine
If the tractor is scheduled to be stored for longer than 60 days, prepare the
engine for storage.
1. Change the engine oil and filter while the engine is still warm.
2. Service the air filter if necessary.
3. Remove dust and debris from the engine air intake screen.
4. Clean the engine and engine compartment.
IMPORTANT: Avoid damage.
●ALWAYS disengage the clutch before storing the tractor. If the clutch is
engaged for a long period, the clutch plate may develop rust, causing the
clutch to not disengage when the tractor is operated next time.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Remove the battery.
Clean the battery and battery posts. Check the electrolyte level.
Close the fuel shut-off valve.
Store the battery in a cool, dry, dark place. However, the temperature of
that place must not become low enough to freeze the electrolyte in
battery.
9. Store the tractor in a dry, safe place. If the tractor is stored outdoors,
protect it with a waterproof cover. Jack up the tractor and place blocks
under the front and rear axles to allow the tires to be lifted off the
ground. Do not allow the tires to be exposed to direct sunlight or
extremely high temperature.
16-2
Ex2900 / 3200 Operator's Manual
16. STORAGE
2. Preparing the Stored Tractor for Operation
1. Check the tire pressure. If necessary, refill with compressed air.
2. Check the levels of engine oil, transmission/hydraulic oil and engine
coolant.
3. Check the battery electrolyte level.
4. Check that the battery is adequately charged.
5. Install the battery.
6. Check the fan belt tension.
7. Lubricate all the grease fittings.
8. If the tractor has a fuel shut-off valve, open it.
9. Run the engine for 5 minutes while the mower or any implement is
disengaged to allow the oil to be fully distributed throughout the entire
engine. After stopping the engine, walk around the tractor and check for
any evidence of oil or other leakage.
10. Make sure that all the shields, guards or deflectors are in place.
