precautions. To help prevent accidents, read the following precautions before operating this equipment.
Equipment should be operated only by those who are responsible and instructed to do so.
Carefully review the procedures given in this manual with all operators. It is important that all operators
be familiar with and follow safety precautions.
THE TRACTOR
1. Read the Operator's Manual carefully
before using the tractor. Lack of operating
knowledge can lead to accidents.
2. Use an approved roll bar for safe
operation. Overturning a tractor without a
roll bar can result in death or injury. If
your tractor is not equipped with a roll
bar, see your SHIBAURA Dealer.
3. Keep the tractor and equipment, particularly
brakes and steering, maintained in a reliable
and satisfactory condition to ensure your
safety and comply with legal requirements.
4. Keep open flame or cold weather starting
aids away from the battery to prevent
fires or explosions. Use jumper cables
according to instructions to prevent
sparks which could cause explosion.
3. Use the handholds and step plates when
getting on and off the tractor to prevent
falls. Keep steps and platform cleared of
mud and debris.
5. Stop the engine before performing any
service on the tractor.
4. Do not permit anyone but the operator to
ride on the tractor. There is no safe place
for extra riders.
6. Escaping hydraulic/diesel fluid under
pressure can penetrate the skin causing
serious injury. If fluid is injected into the
skin, obtain medical attention immediately
or gangrene may result.
5. Keep all safety decals clean of dirt and
grime, and replace all missing, illegible,
or damaged safety decals. See the list of
decals in the decal section of this manual.
SERVICING THE TRACTOR
1. The cooling system operates under
pressure which is controlled by the
radiator cap. It is dangerous to remove
the cap while the system is hot. Always
turn the cap slowly to the first stop and
allow pressure to escape before removing
the cap entirely.
2. Keep any type of open flame away from
the tractor and do not smoke while
refueling. Wait for the engine to cool
before refueling.
0-5
• DO NOT use your hand to check for
leaks. Use a piece of cardboard or
paper to search for leaks.
• Stop the engine and relieve pressure
before connecting or disconnecting
lines.
• Tighten all connections before starting
the engine or pressurizing lines.
7. Do not modify or permit anyone else to
modify or alter this tractor or any of its
components or functions without first
consulting a SHIBAURA Dealer.
8. The fuel oil in the injection system is
under high pressure and can penetrate
the skin. Unqualified persons should not
remove or attempt to adjust a pump,
injector, nozzle, or any other part of the
fuel injection system. Failure to follow
these instructions can result in serious
injury.
9. Continuous long-term contact with used
engine oil may cause skin cancer. Avoid
prolonged contact with used engine oil.
Wash skin promptly with soap and water.
8. If the power steering or engine ceases
operating, stop the tractor immediately.
9. Pull only from the drawbar or the lower
link drawbar in the down position. Use
only a drawbar pin that locks in place.
Pulling from the tractor rear axle or any
point above the axle may cause the
tractor to upset.
OPERATING THE TRACTOR
10. If the front end of the tractor tends to rise
when heavy implements are attached to
the three-point hitch, install front end or
front wheel weights. Do not operate the
tractor with a light front end.
1. Before starting the tractor, apply the
parking brake, place the PTO lever in the
"OFF" position, the lift control lever in the
down position, the remote control valve
levers in the neutral position, and the
transmission in neutral.
11. Always set the hydraulic selector lever in
position control when attaching or
transporting equipment. Ensure hydraulic
couplers are properly mounted and will
disconnect safely in case of accidental
detachment of implement.
2. Always sit in the tractor seat when
starting the engine or operating controls.
Do not start the engine or operate
controls while standing beside the
tractor.
12. Do not leave equipment in the raised
position.
3. Do not bypass the neutral start switches.
Consult your SHIBAURA Dealer if your
neutral start controls malfunction. Use
jumper cables only in the recommended
manner. Improper use can result in
tractor runaway.
4. Avoid accidental contact with the gear
shift lever while the engine is running, as
this can cause unexpected tractor
movement.
5. Before getting off the tractor, disengage
the PTO, turn the engine off, and apply
the parking brake. Never get off the
tractor while it is in motion.
6. Do not park the tractor on a steep incline.
7. Do not operate the tractor engine in an
enclosed building without adequate
ventilation. Exhaust fumes can cause
death or illness.

13. Use the flasher/turn signal lights when
traveling on public roads both day and
night (unless prohibited by law).
14. When operating at night, adjust lights to
prevent blinding oncoming drivers.
DRIVING THE TRACTOR
1. Watch where you are going, especially at
row ends, on roads, around trees and low
hanging obstacles.
2. To avoid upsets, drive the tractor with
care and at a safe speed. Use extra
caution when operating over rough
ground, when crossing ditches or slopes,
and when turning corners.
4. To avoid injury, do not clean, adjust,
unclog, or service PTO driven equipment
when the tractor engine is running.
5. Ensure the PTO master shield is installed
at all times. Always replace the PTO
shield cap when the PTO is not in use.
DIESEL FUEL
4. Do not coast or free wheel down hills.
Use the same gear when going downhill
as is used when going uphill.
1. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should
gasoline, alcohol, or blended fuels be
added to diesel fuel. These combinations
can create an increased fire or explosive
hazard. Such blends are more explosive
than pure gasoline in a closed container
such as a fuel tank. DO NOT USE THESE
BLENDS.
5. Any towed vehicle with a total weight
exceeding that of the towing tractor
should be equipped with brakes for safe
operation.
2. Never remove the fuel cap or refuel with
the engine running or hot.
3. Do not smoke while refueling or when
standing near fuel.
6. If the tractor becomes stuck or the tires
become frozen to the ground, back up the
tractor to prevent upset.
4. Maintain control of the fuel filler pipe
nozzle when filling the tank.
3. To provide two-wheel braking, one pedal
actuates both brakes.
7. Always check overhead clearance,
especially when transporting the tractor.
5. Do not fill the fuel tank to capacity. Allow
room for expansion.
6. Wipe up spilled fuel immediately.

ECOLOGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Soil air, and water are vital factors of agriculture
and life in general. When legislation does not yet
rule the treatment of some of the substances
which are required by advanced technology,
common sense should govern the use and
disposal of products of a chemical and
petrochemical nature.
2. In general, avoid skin contact with all fuels,
oils, acids, solvents, etc. Most of them contain
substances which may be harmful to your
health.
The following are recommendations which may
be of assistance:
4. Avoid spillage when draining off used engine
coolant mixtures, engine, gearbox and
hydraulic oils, brake fluids, etc. Do not mix
drained brake fluids or fuels with lubricants.
Store them safely until they can be disposed
of in a proper way to comply with local
legislation and available resources.
•
•
Become acquainted with and ensure that you
understand the relative legislation applicable
to your country.
Where no legislation exists, obtain
information from suppliers of oils, filters,
batteries, fuels, antifreeze, cleaning agents,
etc., with regard to their effect on man and
nature and how to safely store, use and
dispose of these substances. Agricultural
consultants will, in many cases, be able to
help you as well.
HELPFUL HINTS
1. Avoid filling tanks using cans or inappropriate
pressurized fuel delivery systems which may
cause considerable spillage.
0-14
3. Modern oils contain additives. Do not burn
contaminated fuels and or waste oils in
ordinary heating systems.
5. Modern coolant mixtures, i.e. antifreeze and
other additives, should be replaced every two
years. They should not be allowed to get into
the soil but should be collected and disposed
of safely.
6. Repair any leaks or defects in the engine
cooling or hydraulic system immediately.
7. Do not increase the pressure in a pressurized
circuit as this may lead to a component
failure.
8. Protect hoses during welding as penetrating
weld splatter may burn a hole or weaken them,
allowing the loss of oils, coolant, etc.
UNIVERSAL SYMBOLS
As a guide to the operation of your tractor, various universal symbols have been utilized on the
instruments, controls, switches, and fuse box. The symbols are shown below with an indication of their
meaning.

ROLLOVER PROTECTIVE STRUCTURE
(ROPS)
Your tractor is equipped with a folding Roll Over
protective Structure (ROPS). If, for some reason,
the ROPS was deleted by the original or has
been removed. It is recommended that you equip
your tractor with a ROPS.
ROPS are effective in reducing injuries during
tractor overturn accidents. Overturning tractor
without a ROPS can result in serious injury or
death.
Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS), is
available from your SHIBAURA Tractor Dealer.
WARNING
When improperly operated, a tractor can roll
over. For low clearance use only, the ROPS
may be lowered.
No protection is provided when the tractor is
operated with the ROPS in the lowered
position.
Always raise the ROPS and lock it
immediately after low clearance work.
Folding the ROPS
A foldable ROPS is factory installed on your
tractor. Operate with ROPS in the raised position
whenever possible. Use the ROPS in the folded
position only when absolutely necessary.
To fold the ROPS remove two lock pins, lower
the upper of the ROPS rearward.
Install two lock pins to anchor the ROPS firmly
once in position. To raise the ROPS reverse the
above procedure.
WARNING
Do not operate the tractor with the ROPS
folded as a standard operating mode. A
folded ROPS does not provide rollover
protection.
Always pull from the tractor the drawbar. Do no
attach chains or ropes to the ROPS for pulling
purposes, as the tractor can tip backwards.

PRE-HEATING THE SYSTEM
Your tractor has a diesel engine. Before starting
a cold engine, the precombustion chambers
must be heated.
To pre-heat the engine, turn the key switch to the
"HEAT" position and hold the key in this position
for approximately 5 seconds. The glow plugs
heat the precombustion chambers during this
time, and the engine will start.
NOTE: When ambient temperatures are colder,
a longer pre-heat time is necessary. Even after
the cold start indicator light has gone out, the
glow plugs will continue to heat if the key is held
in the "HEAT" position.

BREAK-IN PROCEDURES
Your SHIBAURA tractor will provide long and
dependable service if given proper care during
the first 50-hour break-in period. During the first
50 hours of operation:
1. Avoid "lugging" the engine. Operating in too
high a gear under heavy load may cause
engine lugging, which is indicated when the
engine will not respond to a throttle increase.
1. Shield your eyes.
2. Connect one end of the jumper cable to the
tractor battery positive (+) terminal and the
other to the auxiliary battery positive (+)
terminal. Next, connect one end of the other
jumper cable first to the auxiliary battery
negative (-) terminal, then the other end to
the tractor starter ground terminal. Finally,
start the tractor by following the safe starting
procedures outlined under "Starting the
Engine." Idle the engine and turn on all
electrical equipment (lights, etc.), then
disconnect the jumper cables in the reverse
order in which they were connected. This
helps protect the alternator from damage due
to extreme load changes.
2. Use the lower gear ratios when pulling heavy
loads and avoid continuous operation at
constant engine speeds. You will save fuel
and minimize engine wear by selecting the
correct gear ratio for a particular operation.
Operating the tractor in low gear with a light
load and high engine speed wastes fuel.
3. Avoid prolonged operation at either high or
low engine speeds without a load on the
engine.
4. Check the instruments frequently and keep
the radiator and oil reservoirs filled to
recommended levels. Daily checks include
the engine oil level, radiator coolant, and air
cleaner.
WARNING
Batteries contain sulfuric acid and produce
explosive gases. To prevent personal injury:
• Wear eye and skin protection.
• Keep sparks and flame away.
• Ensure there is adequate ventilation while
charging or using the battery.
• Follow the manufacturer's instructions
found on the battery.
5. After the first 50 hours of use, be sure to
perform the maintenance items listed in the
maintenance schedule.

SECTION 2 – OPERATION
DRIVING THE TRACTOR
●
Any towed vehicle whose total weight
exceeds that of the towing tractor must be
equipped with brakes for safe operation.
●
Always check overhead clearance,
especially when transporting the tractor.
WARNING
Observe the following precautions when
driving the tractor.
●
Watch where you are going—especially at
row ends, on roads, and around trees.
● Keep the tractor in gear when going down hill.
Use a low gear to maintain control with
minimum braking.
●
If the tractor is stuck, back out to prevent
upsetting the unit.
●
Always use the drawbar for pull-type work.
Do not pull from any other part of the tractor,
especially ROPS since it may tip backward.
●
Keep the lights adjusted so they do not blind
the operator of an oncoming vehicle.
●
Press the H.S.T. pedal slowly when driving
out of a ditch, gully, or up a steep hillside.
Immediately release the forward speed pedal
if the front wheels should rise off the ground.
●
Reduce speed before turning quickly or
applying the brakes. Brake both wheels
simultaneously when making an emergency
stop.
●
Never apply the differential lock when
turning.
●
Use extreme caution and avoid hard
applications of the tractor brakes when
pulling heavy towed loads at road speeds.
●
Always sit in the driver's seat while starting
or driving the tractor.
IMPORTANT: When transporting on the highway,
it is recommended that a safety chain with tensile
strength equal to the gross weight of the
implement be connected between the tractor and
the towed implement. This will control the
implement in the event the hitch pin is lost.
NOTE: Attaching hardware will need to be
procured locally. Check implement assembly or
operators manual for attaching hardware
specifications, such as bolt size and grade, chain
strength, washers, lock-washer, nuts, etc.
After attaching the safety chain, make a trial run
by driving the tractor to the right and to the left
for a short distance to check the safety chain
adjustment. If necessary, readjust to eliminate
tight or loose chain. Safety chains and suitable
hardware are available from your SHIBAURA

TRACTOR WEIGHTING
For sufficient traction and maximum performance
in heavy draft operations, and to counterbalance
rear-mounted equipment, weight should be
added to tractor in the form of liquid ballast, cast
iron weights or a combination of both. Only
enough weight should be added to provide good
traction and stability. Adding more weight than is
needed results unnecessary soil compaction,
increased rolling resistance, and higher fuel
consumption.
When a mounted implement is raised to the
transport position, the front wheel reaction
should be at least 20% of tractor weight.
NOTE: When adding weight to the tractor, tire
pressures may need to be increased. Refer to
the Tire Inflation Pressure chart found in this
manual.
When using front-mounted equipment, add
weight to the rear axle of the tractor to maintain
good traction and stability. Front-mounted
equipment varies in weight. Refer to equipment
manual for ballasting.
WEIGHTING FOR STABILITY
Front end ballast may be required for stability
and steering control when weight is transferred
from the front wheels to the rear wheels as an
implement is raised by the tractor three-point
hitch.
Add additional front end ballast as required for
stability during operation and transport. Tractor
front end ballast may not always maintain
satisfactory stability if the tractor is operated at
high speed on rough terrain. Reduce tractor
speed and exercise caution under these
conditions.
WEIGHTING LIMITATIONS
The weighting limitations that follow are
limitations only. They do not imply that the tractor
should be weighted to attain the weights given.
Use only enough weight to obtain good
performance.
As a general guide:
Ballast the tractor (less implement) so that
approximately one-third of the tractor weight is
on the front wheels. For optimum traction,
tractors equipped with front-wheel drive should
be ballasted so that 40-45% of machine weight is
on the front wheels.
2-23
SECTION 2 – OPERATION
CAST IRON WEIGHTS (OPTIONAL)
Cast iron weights are available as accessories
from your SHIBAURA Dealer. Weights can be
mounted on the front end of the tractor and on
the rearmost wheels.
NOTE: Front weight bracket 370220230,
372111070 is required to install front weights.

SECTION 2 – OPERATION
LIQUID BALLAST (OPTIONAL)
It is a common practice to add weight to the
tractor by filling rear tires with liquid. A calcium
chloride (CaCl2) and water solution is
recommended due to its low freezing point and
greater density (weight per gallon) than pure
water.
Never exceed the total recommended weight for
the tractor. Because special equipment is
required to fill the tires, consult your SHIBAURA
Dealer.
Tires should never be filled beyond 75%. At 75%
full, the liquid will come to the valve stem when
the valve stem is at its highest point at the top of
the wheel.

SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
LUBRICATION FITTINGS
NOTE: After every 50 hours of normal operation,
apply a good quality grease to the lubrication
points listed below (refer to the Recommended
Lubricants chart). When operating under
extremely dirty conditions, lubricate more
frequently than every 50 hours.
•
Steering Linkage
•
Front Axle Pivot
•
Power Steering Cylinder
•
Pedal Shaft—Clutch & Brake Pedals
•
3-Point Linkage
1. Wipe away all old grease and dirt from the
lubrication fittings to prevent dirt or foreign
material from entering as new grease is
applied.
2. Use a high pressure grease gun to force in
the new grease. Apply pressure until clean
grease oozes from each lubrication point.
3. Wipe away any excess grease.
DIESEL FUEL
• Use clean, quality No. 1 -D or No. 2-D fuel
(ASTM D975).
Use No. 1-D fuel if the ambient temperature
is expected to be lower than 4°C or if the
tractor is to be used at an altitude exceeding
1524 m.
•
Use No. 1-D diesel fuel with a pour point of
at least -12°C below the expected ambient
temperature to prevent fuel flow problems in
cold weather.
•
Keep dirt from entering the fuel tank.
•
Sulfur content of the fuel should be no more
than 0.5%.
•
Sediment and water content should not
exceed 0.05%.
Minimum cetane number is 40. Low
temperature or high altitude operation may
require use of fuel with a higher cetane
number.
•
Use properly mixed winter fuel when
temperatures are extremely cold. In most
areas, diesel fuel is properly blended for
summer and winter grades as ambient
temperatures change. In winter, use winter
grade diesel fuel only. Otherwise, the fuel
may jell and block the fuel system.
Fuel Usage Safety
• UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should
gasoline, alcohol, or gasohol be added to
diesel fuel. These combinations can create
an increased fire or explosive hazard.
To lubricate these points:
•
•
3-3
•
Never remove the fuel cap or refuel the
tractor while the engine is running.
•
Never smoke while refueling or anywhere
near fuel.
•
When filling the tank, maintain control of the
nozzle.
•
Do not fill the fuel tank to capacity. Allow
room for expansion.
•
Wipe up spills immediately.
•
Always tighten the fuel cap securely.
•
If the original fuel tank cap is lost, always
replace it with a SHIBAURA approved cap. A
"will-fit" cap may not be safe.
•
Keep equipment properly maintained.
•
Do not drive equipment near open fires.
•
Never use gasoline for cleaning parts.

SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
COOLING SYSTEM
The tractor engine must operate at the correct
temperature to obtain maximum efficiency and
service life. This is dependent on the cooling
system.
Always fill the system with a 50/50 solution of
permanent antifreeze and clear water.
①
Checking the Coolant Level
NOTE: Check the coolant level daily or after
every 10 hours of operation. The engine should
be cold when coolant level is checked.
Open the hood, and check the coolant recovery
reservoir, mounted to the LH side of the radiator
frame. The fluid level should be between the 'low'
and 'full' marks on the reservoir ①.
If the coolant recovery reservoir is empty,
carefully remove the radiator cap ② and add the
antifreeze/ water solution directly into the radiator
until the radiator is full. Then cap the radiator and
add the solution to the recovery reservoir to bring
the level up to the 'full' mark.
WARNING
The cooling system operates under pressure
controlled by the radiator cap. It is dangerous
to remove the cap while the system is hot.
Always cover the cap with a thick cloth and
turn it slowly counterclockwise to the first
stop. Allow all pressure to escape before
removing the cap completely.
If the coolant level is below the low mark on the
reservoir, add a 50/50 solution of water and
antifreeze to the coolant recovery reservoir
bringing the level to the full mark.
Be sure that the radiator fins are clear of chaff
and dirt to allow free air movement.
3-16
②
SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
Draining and Flushing the Cooling System
NOTE: Drain and flush the radiator and engine
block every 12 months. Refill with a 50/50
solution of permanent antifreeze and clear water.
To drain the cooling system:
1. Place a suitable receptacle to catch the used
coolant. (The coolant system capacity is
3.5L). Re move the radiator cap and open
the drain valve ① on the bottom center of
the radiator to drain the coolant from the
radiator and engine block.
2. After the coolant has drained, place a water
hose in the radiator filler neck and run water
through the system. After water begins
flowing out of the drain valve, start the
engine. Run the engine until the water
flowing from the drain valve is free of
discoloration and sediment, then stop the
engine and remove the hose. Allow all water
to drain from the system through the drain
valve.
3. Close the drain valve and slowly refill the
system with a 50/50 solution of permanent
antifreeze and clear water. Fill the radiator
until the coolant level is approximately 3.8 5 cm below the bottom of the filler neck. Do
not fill beyond this level.
4. Clean the radiator cap and cap seal and
install the cap.
5. Fill the coolant recovery reservoir until the
fluid level is between the "full" and "low"
marks on the reservoir.
6. Clean the radiator front screen ②.
7. Run the engine until normal operating
temperature is reached, then stop the engine.
Recheck the coolant level when the engine
has cooled, and add more coolant as
necessary.
IMPORTANT: NEVER run the engine when the
cooling system is empty. Do NOT add cold water
or cold antifreeze solution if the engine is hot.
3-17
SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
Thermostat
The thermostat is a heat-sensitive valve located
in the coolant outlet connection in the front of the
cylinder head.
When the engine is cold, the thermostat shuts off
the flow of coolant to the radiator, allowing for
rapid engine warm-up. A recirculating bypass
allows coolant to circulate inside the engine
whenever the thermostat shuts off flow to the
radiator.
IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to improve
cooling by removing the thermostat. This will
cause the engine to run below normal
working temperatures, resulting in excessive
engine wear.
To install a new thermostat ① position it in the
recess of the water outlet connection so that the
heat element (spring end) is in the cylinder head
of the engine.
Fan Belt
NOTE: Check the condition of the fan beIt after
every 50 hours of operation. Check fan belt
tension after every 200 hours of operation.
A belt-driven fan located at the front of the
engine draws air through the fins of the radiator
to lower the temperature of the radiator coolant.
When 5 kg of thumb pressure is applied to the
belt midway between the belt pulleys, a correctly
tightened belt will deflect 5 - 10 mm.
If the fan belt is slipping, fan efficiency is lowered,
resulting in the engine running too hot. If the belt
is too tight, the life of the alternator bearing will
be shortened. If the fan belt shows signs of
cracking or fraying, install a new belt.
3-18
SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
To adjust fan belt tension:
WARNING
Never attempt to loosen or tighten mounting
bolts while the engine is running.
1. Loosen the alternator mounting bolts ①.
2. Pry the alternator away from the engine and
tighten the mounting bolts.
3. Recheck belt deflection.
Hydrostatic Transmission (H.S.T.)
After every 100 hours of operation, ensure
proper cooling of the H.S.T.:
1. Remove the four retaining bolts ① and
plastic access cover ② from the operator's
platform, to gain access to H.S.T. cooling
fan.
②
①
2. Using low-pressure air, carefully clean out
any debris found in the fan blades ③ or the
cooling fins on the H.S.T. housing ④. Also
examine fan for cracked or missing blades.
3. Replace the access cover.

SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION OF THE
ROLLOVER PROTECTIVE STRUCTURE
(POPS)
NOTE: Inspect the ROPS after the first 20 hours
of operation. Following the initial inspection,
check the ROPS after every 500 hours of
operation or every six months, whichever comes
first.
1. Check the torque of the ROPS mounting
bolts ① on top of each fender. Tighten the
bolts to the correct torque of 50 N·m if
necessary.
POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO THE ROPS
If the unit has rolled over or the ROPS has been
in some other type of accident (such as hitting an
overhead object during transport), the ROPS
must be replaced to retain the best protection.
Following an accident, check the ROPS, the
operator's seat for possible damage. Before
operating the machine, replace all damaged
parts.
IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to weld or
straighten the ROPS.
WARNING
Always pull from the tractor drawbar pin hole.
Never attach chains, ropes, or cables to the
ROPS or cab for pulling purposes or the
tractor will tip backwards.

SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
BATTERY
The tractor is equipped with a BCI group 51,
12-volt battery, with a minimum cold cranking
ability of 450 amps at -18ºC.
Make sure the battery connections are tight and
free of corrosion. A solution of backing soda and
water may be used to clean the outside surface
and terminals of the battery when necessary.
However, ensure that the none of the solution
gets inside the battery. After cleaning, rinse the
battery with clean water, then apply a small
amount of petroleum jelly to the terminals to
prevent corrosion.
In freezing temperatures, a good battery charge
must be maintained. If the battery becomes
discharged or run down, the electrolyte becomes
weak and may freeze, causing damage to the
case. If you must add water, use distilled water.
Add the water just before using the tractor so
that the water will mix with the electrolyte during
the charging process, thus preventing the water
from freezing.
To check the battery electrolyte level:
1. Clean the top of the battery, then remove the
vent plugs.
2. Add distilled water if the electrolyte level is
low. The level is correct when the liquid is
6.35 mm above the plates.
To determine the battery charge, check the
specific gravity of the electrolyte.
NOTE: Keep distilled water in a nonmetallic
container that is clean and well-covered.
Checking the Electrolyte Level
NOTE: Check the battery electrolyte level after
every 50 hours of operation.
3. Install the vent plug after making sure the
vent holes are not blocked. At below freezing
temperatures, run the engine for a period of
time after adding water, allowing the battery
to charge, which prevents the water from
freezing.
WARNING
Always check the electrolyte level with the
tractor engine off, as an explosive gas is
produced inside the battery when the
alternator is charging. Do not use an exposed
flame and do not smoke when checking the
battery electrolyte level.
3-21
SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
ALTERNATOR
The tractor's 40-amp alternator is belt-driven
from the engine crankshaft pulley. It is important
that belt slippage does not occur, or the charging
system will be adversely affected. To adjust the
belt, see the instructions previously given under
"Fan Belt" section.
When working on or checking the alternator,
adhere to following precautions or alternator
damage may occur:
• Do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
short the field terminal of the alternator to
ground.
• Do not disconnect the alternator output lead
or battery cables while the alternator is
operating.
• Do not remove the alternator from the tractor
without first disconnecting the negative (-)
battery cable. When removing the battery,
disconnect the negative (-) cable first.
• To install a battery, MAKE SURE that the
positive (+) cable is connected first and that
the negative terminal is connected to ground.
Reverse polarity will destroy the rectifier
diodes in the alternator.
FUSE BLOCK

SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
TIRES
NOTE: Check tire pressure after every 50 hours
of operation or weekly.
Tire inflation pressure affects the amount of
weight a tire can carry. Check the air pressure in
your tractor tires, then locate the tires in the "Tire
Inflation Pressures" chart found in this manual, If
necessary, adjust the tire pressure, being careful
not to overinflate or underinflate. Observe the
following guidelines:
•
•
•
Do not inflate a tire above the maximum
pressure shown on the tire. If the tire is not
marked, do not exceed the maximum
pressure shown in the Tire Inflation chart
found in this manual.
Do not reinflate a tire that has been run flat
or seriously underinflated until the tire has
been inspected for damage by a qualified
person.
When checking tire pressure, inspect the tire
for damaged sidewalls and tread cuts.
Neglected damage leads to early tire failure.
•
NEVER INFLATE TO OVER 2.4 BAR TO
SEAT BEADS. If beads have not been
seated by the time pressure reaches 2.4 bar
deflate the assembly, reposition the tire on
the rim, relubricate both tire bead and rim
flanges, and reinflate. Inflation beyond 2.4
bar with unseated beads may break the bead
or rim with explosive force sufficient to cause
serious injury.
•
After seating the beads, adjust inflation
pressure
to
recommended
operating
pressure.
•
Do not inflate a tire unless the rim is
mounted on the tractor or is secured so that
it will not move if the tire or rim should
suddenly fail.
•
Do not weld, braze, repair, or use a
damaged rim.
•
Never attempt tire repairs on a public road or
highway.
•
Use jack stands or other suitable blocking to
support the tractor while repairing tires.
•
Ensure the jack has adequate capacity to lift
your tractor.
•
Place jack on a firm, level surface.
•
Do not place any part of your body beneath
the tractor or start the engine while the
tractor is on the jack.
•
Before adding ballast to the tires, refer to the
information in this manual on "Tractor
Weighting."
WARNING
Inflating or servicing tires can be dangerous.
Trained personnel should service and/or
mount tires whenever possible.
If you must inflate or service tires, follow these
safety precautions to avoid injury or fatality:
•
Make sure the rim is clean and free of rust.
•
Lubricate both tire beads and rim flanges
with soap solution. Do not use oil or grease.
•
Use a clip-on tire chuck with a remote hose
and gauge. This allows the operator to stand
clear of the tire while inflating.

SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
FRONT WHEEL TOE-IN
Front wheel toe-in adjustments were made on
your tractor at the factory. Normally, the wheels
maintain their toe-in; however, an occasional
check should be made.
Checking Toe-In
To check toe-in:
1. With the front wheels in the straight ahead
position, mark the front of the wheels (not the
tires) at wheel hub height.
2. Measure and record the distance between
the front of the wheels at the marks, then
push the tractor forward or backward until
the marks are at wheel hub height on the
rear of the wheel.
3. Measure and record the distance between
the marks at the rear of the wheels.
4. The difference between the dimensions
recorded in step 2 and step 3 should give 0
mm – 5 mm toe-in. This means that the
distance between the marks on the wheels
should be 0 mm – 5 mm greater when the
marks are at the rear than at the front.
Adjusting Toe-In
If toe-in is not correct, adjust as follows:
1. Loosen the tie rod locknuts ①.
2. Adjust the tie rod tubes assemblies ②
evenly as required to give 0 mm – 5 mm
toe-in.
3. After the correct toe-in is obtained, tighten
the tie rod locknuts.
3-28
SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
BRAKE ADJUSTMENT
Whenever brake pedal travel becomes excessive,
the pedal should be adjusted.
1. Loosen the locknut ① and rotate the brake
rod ② until there is 25 - 30 mm of pedal free
play. Lengthening the rod increases free
play; shortening the rod decreases free play.
2. Test drive the tractor to ensure that the brake
pedal travel is within suitable limits.
IMPORTANT:
evenly.
Adjust left and right brakes
PARKING BRAKE ADJUSTMENT
If the parking brake lever travel becomes
excessive or the parking brake efficiency is
reduced, the parking brake should be adjusted
as follows:
1. Check and if necessary, adjust the foot
brakes, as previously described.
2. Release the parking brake lever, Slacken the
locknut and turn the adjusting nut so that
both rear wheels are locked when the
parking brake lever is applied 3-4 notches on
the ratchet.
3. Ensure the rear wheels turn freely with the
parking brake lever released.
4. Tighten the locknut without disturbing the
adjusting nut.
IMPORTANT: Check the brake cables for
corrosion, fraying or kinks. Ensure both inner
cables move freely in the outer cables and are
lubricated with a high quality grease. Replace
any unserviceable cables.

NOTE: Check the oil level in the combined front
axle differential/final reduction gear case after
every 50 hours of operation.
1. With the tractor standing level and the
engine off, check the front axle oil level using
the dipstick/filler plug ①.
2. The oil is at the correct level when it reads
between the 'full' mark and the lower end of
the dipstick. If the oil level is low, add SAE
80 hydraulic oil through the combined
dipstick/filler opening. Do not fill beyond the
dipstick 'full' mark, or the front axle will be
overfilled.
NOTE: To obtain the correct oil level reading, do
not screw the dipstick into the axle case, when
checking the oil level.
3. Reinstall the dipstick/filler plug.
Changing the Front Axle Differential/Final
Reduction Gear Case Oil
NOTE: The oil in the combined front axle
differential/final reduction gear case should be
changed after every 300 operating hours.
1. Place a suitable container beneath the oil
drain plugs ① located at the bottom of the
final reduction gear housings on both sides
of the tractor.
NOTE: The capacity of the combined front axle
differential/final reduction gear case is 2.0L of
hydraulic oil.
2. With the oil at normal operating temperature,
remove the dipstick/filler plug ② and both
drain plugs and allow the front axle case to
completely drain.
3-30
SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
3. After all the oil has drained from the axle
case, replace both drain plugs and properly
dispose of the used oil.
4. Refill the axle case with SAE 80 hydraulic oil
until the oil level shows between the 'full'
mark and lower end of the dipstick. Reinstall
the dipstick/filler plug.
NOTE: To obtain the correct oil level reading, do
not screw the dipstick into the axle case when
checking the oil level.
FRONT AXLE PIVOT/STANDARD FWD AXLE
NOTE: The center housing pivot point ① should
be greased after every 50 hours of operation
under normal conditions. Under extremely dirty
conditions, lubrication should be carried out more
frequently than every 50 hours. Use a good
quality, multipurpose, lithium-base grease.
3-31
SECTION 3 – LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
TRACTOR STORAGE
Below is a list of protective measures which
should be taken if your tractor is to be stored for
an extended period of time:
8. Place blocking under the tractor axles to
remove the weight from the tires.
1. Thoroughly clean the tractor. Use touch-up
paint where necessary to prevent rust.
Tractors which have been placed in storage
should be completely serviced in the following
manner before using:
2. Check the tractor for worn or damaged parts.
Install new parts as required.
9. Cover the exhaust pipe opening.
1. Inflate the tires to the recommended
pressures and remove the blocking.
3. Raise the lift arms hydraulically to their fullest
raised position so that the lift piston is in a
fully extended position. This fills the cylinder
with oil and protects the cylinder wall
surfaces from corrosion.
2. Check the oil level in the engine crankcase,
power steering reservoir, the common sump
(for the hydraulic lift, transmission, and rear
axle), and the optional front-wheel drive axle.
4. Lubricate the tractor.
3. Install a fully charged battery.
5. Fill the fuel tank with No. 1 diesel fuel.
4. Check the cooling system for the proper level
(50/50 solution of antifreeze and clear
water).
IMPORTANT: Do not use No. 2 diesel fuel for
winter storage because of wax separation and
setting at low temperature.
6. Open the drain valve of the radiator and
engine block. Flush the system, close the
drain valves, and fill with a 50/50 solution of
permanent antifreeze and clear water.
5. Start the engine and allow it to idle a few
minutes. Ensure the engine is receiving
lubrication and that each control is
functioning correctly.
6. Drive the tractor without a load and check to
make sure it is operating satisfactorily.
7. Remove the battery and clean it thoroughly.
Be sure that it is fully charged and that the
electrolyte is at the proper level. Store the
battery in a cool, dry place above freezing
temperature, and charge it periodically
during storage.

OPERATING THE TRACTOR & MOWER
Use the hand holds and step platforms when
mounting and dismounting the tractor to prevent
falling. Always keep steps and platforms clean
and free of mud or other debris.
SERVICING THE MOWER
Keep the tractor and mower clean. Grease, dry
debris and grass buildup can cause fires,
damaging the equipment and causing serious
injury to yourself or others.
The operator MUST remain in the tractor seat at
all times while mowing, transporting, or anytime
the tractor engine is running.
Check for and replace or repair missing, loose, or
damaged parts on the mower. A defective mower
could cause injury to another operator who is
unaware of a potential problem.
NEVER start the engine while-standing beside
the tractor. The operator MUST sit in the tractor
seat when starting the engine.
To avoid injury, do not clean, adjust, unclog, or
service the mower when the engine is running.
NEVER run the engine in a closed building
without adequate ventilation. Exhaust fumes are
very dangerous and can cause permanent injury
or death.
Do not work under the raised tractor or mower
deck unless it is securely supported by a hoist,
floor jack and jackstands.
Keep the tractor in gear when traveling downhill.
Make sure all hoists, floor jacks and jackstands
are in good working order and have sufficient
capacity to support the elevated equipment,
before repair, adjustment, or lubrication of the
tractor or mower.
Install tractor wheel weights to increase stability
when operating on slopes. Consult your
SHIBAURA Dealer on ballasting requirements for

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
GENERAL INFORMATION
The safe operation of the Tractor and Mower is
the responsibility of the operator. The operator
MUST be familiar with tractor and mower
controls, how they work, and all Safety
Precautions BEFORE starting operation. This
mower is designed to be mounted on applicable
tractors as a finish cut mower.
Mow often! Do not wait for the grass to get too
tall. Short grass clippings will disperse better and
deteriorate faster.
CAUTION
Clear the area of all visible debris before
beginning mowing operations.
Mowing areas with tall grass or weeds may
require cutting at 10 cm (maximum) height of cut.
After mowing once, recut the entire area with the
mower reset to the desired final height of cut.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the mower,
re-torque ALL fastening hardware, including
blade and spindle pulley retaining nuts, after the
first hour of mowing operation. See page 4-26 for
blade servicing information.
WARNING
Always keep mower discharge directed away
from people or animals, which could be
injured, and away from objects that could be
damaged, by debris thrown by the mower
blades.
CAUTION
Inspect the mowing blade retainer bolts and
spindle nuts daily, or whenever a blade has
been removed.
The gauge wheels on either side of the front of
the mowing deck serve as convenient mowing
guides. When mowing, position the mower so the
gauge wheel overlaps the edge of the strip
previously cut. This will assure full mowing
coverage.
TIPS FOR EFFICIENT MOWING
Blade sharpness affects the appearance of the
mowed lawn. A dull or damaged blade will cause
grass to appear torn or beaten off, rather than
cut cleanly. Mowing blades should be checked
regularly and kept sharp to insure the best lawn
appearance.
CAUTION
Mow only during daylight hours, or when the
area is well lit artificially.
Tractor engine speed while mowing should be at
maximum rated RPM. This will insure proper
blade speed for effective cutting and discharge of
grass clippings.
When transporting, always disengage the power
to the mower.
Travel
speed
greatly
effects
mowing
performance. The operator must use his own
best judgement for the ground speed required for
encountered mowing conditions. Always use a
lower tractor transmission speed for slower
mowing, rather than lowering engine RPM.
WARNING
To avoid the possibility of injury from flying
debris, never operate the mower in the raised
transport position.
WARNING
Do not permit anyone but the operator to ride
on the tractor or mower. There is no safe
place on this equipment for passengers.
4-7
SECTION 4 – SXM54, SXM60 MOWER DECK
UNEVEN TERRAIN
Pre-plan mowing over uneven terrain so the
grass will be dry, minimizing wheel slippage and
spinning, which will damage the turf.
Avoid sudden starts and stops while traveling up
or down hill, and slow the ground speed while
turning.
GRASS DISCHARGE
SXM54 and SXM60 mower decks have been
designed to provide maximum air flow for an
even discharge of grass clippings. When mowing
tall, or lush grasses, select a lower tractor
transmission speed, or reduce the width of cut,
for the best discharge efficiency.
WARNING
To avoid loss of control, and to prevent
overturning the tractor and mower, always
mow up and down slopes, never across.
For the best lawn appearance, do not mow when
the grass is wet or heavy with dew. Wet grass
could plug the bottom of the mower deck,
creating an unnatural load through the blades
and spindles, possibly damaging the mower deck
belt. Wet grass will also leave unsightly clumps
on the lawn.
Pass diagonally through sharp dips. Avoid sharp
drop-offs completely to prevent "hanging-up" the
tractor and mower.
WARNING
Keep the tractor in gear when traveling
downhill.
If the mower should become clogged, back the
unit out of the uncut grass and try to clear it by
engaging and disengaging the PTO with the
deck raised. If the mower will not clear itself,
raise the deck, shut off the engine, set the
parking brake, lock the deck in the transport
position, and clean the bottom of the deck with a
scraper.
Before mowing, check the area to determine the
best procedure. Consider the grass type and
height, and the type of uneven terrain on which
the mowing is to take place.
DANGER
Always use an approved roll over protective
structure (POPS) for safe operation.
Overturning a tractor, without a ROPS, can
result in serious injury or death. If your
tractor is not equipped with a ROPS, see your
SHIBAURA dealer.
WARNING
The operator should never leave the tractor
seat with the mower blades rotating, with the
tractor in motion, or when the tractor engine
is running.

wrench to loosen the blade retaining bolt.
5. Remove the bolt ① spacer ② two cup
washers ③ and blade ④.
6. Repeat steps 1 - 5 for the remaining two
blades.
IMPORTANT: Note and mark the mounting
position of each blade during removal. For
prolonged blade life it is recommended to rotate
the blades to different spindles during
installation.
Inspection
1. Inspect the blades for chipping, cracking or
bent. Any damage that is not repairable
through sharpening only, warrants blade
replacement.
2. Inspect the cup washers. If washers are
flattened, worn or damaged, replace with
new washers.
IMPORTANT: Damaged or Worn cup washers
will allow the blade to slip excessively causing
wear and damage to other deck components. Do
not use worn or damaged cup washers.
4-25
SECTION 4 – SXM54, SXM60 MOWER DECK
Blade Installation
1. Place the new or sharpened and balanced
blades on the spindles with the curved edge
(sail) part of the blade facing "up" towards
the underside of the deck.
NOTE: Rotate the blades to different spindles
(from the removed position) according to the
inset drawing.

SECTION 4 – SXM54, SXM60 MOWER DECK
MOWER BLADE SHARPENING
Inspect the mower blades before each use to be
sure they are properly installed and are in good
condition. Replace any blade that is bent,
cracked, excessively nicked or worn. Use only
genuine SHIBAURA blades on this mower.
WARNING
To avoid injury when handling blades, wear
leather gloves or wrap the blades in the area
where they will be held with heavy cloth or
other protective material. Always wear eye
protection when sharpening blades.
IMPORTANT: When sharpening blades, remove
the same amount of material from each blade to
maintain balance. Unbalanced blades will cause
excessive vibration, which could damage
gearbox and mower components.
1. Use a mill file or grinder to sharpen the
blades following the original 45° angle
pattern. If using a grinder, use care so the
cutting edge does not get too hot from
friction, causing it to lose its heat treat.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT sharpen cutting edge to
a razor edge. Leave a 0.8 mm edge as shown.
2. Check the blade for balance by placing a
horizontal rod with an O.D. less than 16 mm,
in a vise.
3. Place the blade on the rod. The heavy side
of the blade should drop down.
4. Sharpen on the heavy side of the blade until
the blade remains balanced on the rod.
