NOTE: To protect hood from damage
when transporting your tractor on a truck
or a trailer, be sure hood is closed and
secured to tractor. Use an appropriate
means of tying hood to tractor (rope, cord,
etc.).
TOWING CARTS AND OTHER ATTACHMENTS
Tow only the attachments that are
recommended by and comply with
specifications of the manufacturer of your
tractor. Use common sense when towing.
Too heavy of a load, while on a slope, is
dangerous. Tires can lose traction with
the ground and cause you to lose control
of your tractor.
BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
1. Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
2. Unthread and remove oil fill cap/
dipstick; wipe oil off. Reinsert the
dipstick into the tube and rest oil fill
cap on the tube. Do not thread the
cap onto the tube. Remove and read
oil level. If necessary, add oil until
"FULL" mark on dipstick is reached.
Do not overfill.
• For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See the oil
viscosity chart in the Maintenance
section of this manual).
• To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
ADD GASOLINE
• Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler
neck. Do not overfill. Use fresh, clean,
regular unleaded gasoline with a
minimum of 87 octane. (Use of leaded
gasoline will increase carbon and lead
oxide deposits and reduce valve life).
Do not mix oil with gasoline. Purchase
fuel in quantities that can be used
within 30 days to assure fuel freshness.
•,CAUTION:
Wipe off any spilled oil or
fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline
near an open flame.
IMPORTANT:
When operating in temperatures below 32°F(0°C),
use fresh,
clean winter grade gasoline to help
insure good cold weather starting.
CAUTION:
Alcohol blended fuels (called
gasohol or using 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 next season. See Storage Instructions for additional information.
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
TO START
ENGINE
When starting the engine for the first time
or if the engine has run out of fuel, it will
take extra cranking time to move fuel from
the tank to the engine.
1. Be sure freewheel control is in the
transmission engaged position.
2. Sit on seat in operating position,
depress brake pedal and set parking
brake.
3. Move attachment clutch to disengaged position.
4. Move throttle control to fast position
5. Pull choke control out for a cold
engine start attempt. For a warm
engine start attempt the choke control
may not be needed.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and
cold starting procedures
below.
6. Insert key into ignition and turn key
clockwise to start position and release
key as soon as engine starts. Do not
run starter continuously for more than
fifteen seconds per minute. If the
engine does not start after several
attempts, push choke control in, wait a
few minutes and try again. If engine
still does not start, pull the choke
control out and retry.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and
above)
7. When engine starts, slowly push
choke control in until the engine
begins to run smoothly. If the engine
starts to run roughly, pull the choke
control out slightly for a few seconds
and then continue to push the control
in slowly.
• The attachments
and ground drive can
now be used. If the engine does not
accept the load, restart the engine and
allow it to warm up for one minute
13
using the choke as described above.
COLDWEATHER
STARTING (50 F and
below)
7. When engine starts, slowly push
choke control in until the engine
begins to run smoothly. Continue to
push the choke control in small steps
allowing the engine to accept small
changes in speed and load, until the
choke control is fully in.
If the engine starts to run roughly, pull
the choke
control out slightly for a few
seconds and then continue to push the
control in slowly. This may require an
engine warm-up period from several
seconds to several minutes, depending
on the temperature.
AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
WARM UP
Before driving the unit in cold weather, the
transmission
should be warmed up as
follows:
1. Be sure the tractor is on level ground.
2. Release the parking brake and let the
brake slowly return to operating
position.
3. Allow one minute for transmission
to
warm up. This can be done during the
engine warm up period.
• The attachments
can be used during the
engine warm-up period after the
transmission
has been warmed up and
may require the choke control be pulled
out slightly.
NOTE" If at a high altitude (above 3000
feet) or in cold temperatures
(below 32 F)
the carburetor fuel mixture may need to be
adjusted for best engine performance.
(See 'q'O ADJUST CARBURETOR"
in the
Service and Adjustments
section of this
manual).
PURGE TRANSMISSION
_il,CAUTION"
Never engage or disengage
freewheel lever while the engine is running.
To ensure proper operation and performance, it is recommended
that the transmission be purged before operating tractor for
the first time. This procedure will remove any
trapped air inside the transmission which
may have developed during shipping of
your tractor.
IMPORTANT:
Should your transmission
require removal for service or replacement,
it should be purged after reinstallation
before operating the tractor.
1. Place tractor safely on level surface
with engine off and parking brake set.
2. Disengage
transmission
by placing
freewheel
control in disengaged
position (See "TO TRANSPORT"
in this
section of manual).
3. Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move
throttle control to slow position.
Disengage
parking brake.
4. Depress forward drive pedal to full
forward position and hold for five (5)
seconds and release pedal. Depress
reverse drive pedal to full reverse
position and hold for five (5) seconds
and release pedal. Repeat this
procedure three (3) times.
NOTE" During this step there will be no
movement of drive wheels. The air is being
removed from hydraulic drive system.
5.
6.
Shut off engine and set parking brake.
Engage transmission
by placing
freewheel
control in "transmission
engaged" position (See "TO TRANSPORT' in this section of manual).
7. Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move
throttle control to half (1/2)speed.
Disengage
parking brake.
8. Drive tractor forward for approximately
five feet then backwards for five feet.
Repeat this driving procedure three
times.
Your transmission
is now purged and
ready for normal operation.
MOWING
TIPS
• Mower should be properly leveled for
best mowing performance.
See 'q'O
LEVEL MOWER HOUSING"
in the
Service and Adjustments
section of this
manual.
• The left hand side of mower should be
used for trimming.
• Drive so that clippings are discharged
onto the area that has already been
cut. Have the cut area to the right of the
tractor.
This will result in a more even
distribution
of clippings and more
uniform cutting.
• When mowing large areas, start by
turning to the right so that clippings will
discharge away from shrubs, fences,
driveways, etc. After one or two
rounds, mow in the opposite direction
making left hand turns until finished.
f
• If grass is extremely tall, it should be
mowed twice to reduce load and
possible fire hazard from dried clippings. Make first cut relatively high; the
second to the desired height.
• Do not mow grass when it is wet. Wet
grass will plug mower and leave
undesirable
clumps.
Allow grass to dry
before mowing.
• Always operate engine at full throttle
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance
and proper discharge of
material.
Regulate ground speed by
selecting a low enough gear to give the
mower cutting performance
as well as
the quality of cut desired.
• When operating attachments,
select a
ground speed that will suit the terrain
and give best performance
of the
14 attachment being used.

PRELIMINARY
The choke control has been preset at the
factory and adjustment should not be
necessary, check adjustment as described below before loosening cable. If
adjustment is necessary, proceed as
follows:
SE'I-I-ING
-
1. Be sure you have a clean air filter, and
the throttle control cable is adjusted
properly (see "TO ADJUST
THROTTLE
CONTROL CABLE" in the
Service and Adjustments
section of
this manual).
2. With engine off turn idle fuel adjusting
needle in (clockwise)
closing it finger
tight and then turn out (counterclockwise) 1 turn.
1. With engine not running, move choke
control (located on dash panel) to full
choke position.
2. Remove air cleaner cover, filter and
cartridge plate to expose carburetor
choke (See "AIR FILTER" in the
Maintenance section of this manual).
3. Choke should be closed. If it is not,
loosen casing clamp screw and move
choke cable until choke is completely
closed. Tighten casing clamp screw
securely.
4. Reassemble air cleaner.
FINAL SETTING
-
1. Start engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make final adjustments
with
engine running and shift/motion
control lever in neutral (N) position.
NOTE" The high idle is set at the factory
and cannot be adjusted.
2. Idle soeed setting - With throttle
control lever in slow position, engine
should idle at 1200 RPM. If engine
idles too slow or fast, turn idle speed
adjusting screw in or out until correct
idle is attained.
Closed For
Full,
3.
TO ADJUST
Idle fuel needle setting - With throttle
control lever in slow position, turn idle
fuel adjusting needle in (clockwise)
until engine speed decreases
and
then turn out (counterclockwise)
approximately
3/4 turn to obtain the
best low speed performance.
4. Recheck idle speed. Readjust if
necessary.
CARBURETOR
The carburetor has been present at the
factory and adjustment should not be
necessary. However, minor adjustment
may be required to compensate for
differences in fuel, temperature, altitude
or load. If the carburetor does need
adjustment, proceed as follows:
In general, turning the adjusting needles
in (clockwise) decreases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a leaner fuel/air
mixture. Turning the adjusting needles out
(counterclockwise)
increases the supply
of fuel to the engine giving a richer fuel/
air mixture.
ACCELERATION
5.
TEST -
Move throttle control lever from slow to
fast position. If engine hesitates or
dies, turn idle fuel adjusting needle
out (counterclockwise)
1/8 turn.
Repeat test and continue to adjust, if
necessary,
until engine accelerates
smoothly.
High speed stop is factory adjusted. Do
not adjust-damage
may result.
IMPORTANT:
Never tamper with the
engine governor, which is factory set for
proper engine speed. Overspeeding
the
engine above the factory high speed
setting can be dangerous.
If you think the
engine-governed
high speed needs
adjusting, contact your nearest Sears or
other qualified service center, which has
proper equipment
and experience
to
make any necessary adjustments.
IMPORTANT:
Damage to the needles
and the seats in carburetor may result if
screw is turned in too tight.

Immediately
prepare your tractor for
storage at the end of the season or if the
tractor will not be used for 30 days or
more.
_ILWARNING"
Never store the tractor
with gasoline in the tank inside a building
where fumes may reach an open flame or
spark. Allow the engine to cool before
storing in any enclosure.
TRACTOR
Remove
mower
from tractor for winter
storage. When mower is to be stored for
a period of time, clean it thoroughly,
remove all dirt, grease, leaves, etc. Store
in a clean, dry area.
1. Clean entire tractor (See "CLEANING"
in the Maintenance
section of this
manual).
2. Inspect and replace belts, if necessary
(See belt replacement
instructions
in
the Service and Adjustments
section
of this manual).
3. Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual.
4. Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws
are securely fastened.
Inspect moving
parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
5. Touch up all rusted or chipped paint
surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
experiance
indicates that alcohol
blended fuels (called gasohol or using
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.
1. Drain the fuel tank.
2.
Start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor
are empty.
• Never use engine or carburetor cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
• Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE;
Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative in minimizing
the formation of
fuel gum deposits during storage.
Add
stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or
storage container.
Always follow the mix
ratio found on stabilizer container.
Run
engine at least 10 minutes after adding
stabilizer to allow the stabilizer to reach
the carburetor.

4. Replace with new spark plug(s).
BATTERY
• Fully charge the battery for storage.
• After a period of time in storage, battery
may require recharging.
• To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long periods of storage,
battery cables should be disconnected
and battery cleaned thoroughly
(see
"TO CLEAN BA-I-FERY AND TERMINALS" in the Maintenance
section of
this manual).
• After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place cables where they
cannot come in contact with battery
terminals.
• If battery is removed from tractor for
storage, do not store battery directly
concrete or damp surfaces.
Do not drain the gas tank
if using fuel stabilizer.
OTHER
• Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.
• Replace your gasoline can if your can
starts to rust. Rust and/or dirt in your
gasoline will cause problems.
• If possible, store your tractor indoors
and cover it to give protection from dust
and dirt.
• Cover your tractor with a suitable
protective cover that does not retain
moisture.
Do not use plastic.
