SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS
ACCIDENT PATTERNS TO AVOID
I.
II.
III.
IV.
V.
CONTACT WITH THE ROTATING
BLADE -- This accident usually
happens when the operator is clearing
the discharge chute of grass, (especially
when the grass is wet), or when the
operator adjusts the machine without
turning it off and waiting for the blades
to completely stop.
1.
with the Zero Turning Radius Mower
should be trained in its proper use and
warned of its dangers. Before operating,
adjusting, or servicing the Zero Turning
Radius Mower they should read and
understand this entire manual and the
engine owner's manual.
PROPELLED OBJECTS - Sticks,
rocks, wires, and other objects can be
propelled out through the discharge chute or
from under the mower housing. Bystanders
are particularly vulnerable.
GRASS CATCHER OR GUARD - The
mower shall not be operated without either
the entire grass catcher or guard in place.
2.
3.
OVERTURNING - This happens when riding
mowers are used on steep slopes,
embankments or hills. The operator in
these cases can come in contact with the
blades or sustain injuries during a fall.
MOWER RUNNING OVER THE
VICTIM ~ This usually happens when a
riding mower is driven in reverse. The
accident victims are most often young
children whom, unseen by the operator of
the mower, were in the area being mowed.
PEOPLE WHO OPERATE, SERVICE,
OR ARE OTHERWISE ASSOCIATED
AVOID CONTACT WITH MOVING
PARTS. Keep hands and feet from
under mowing deck and away from
blades at all times. Turn engine (motor)
off if you must unclog the chute.
AVOID HILLS AND SLOPES. Use
.extreme caution when mowing up or
down slopes. NEVER mow across the
face of a slope. If a slope must be
ascended, back up the slope; drive
forward when descending. Reduce ~
speed and use caution to start, stop and
maneuver. To prevent loss of control on a
slope avoid sharp turns, sudden changes
in direction, and sudden stops and starts.
4.
DISENGAGE POWER TO MOWER
BEFORE BACKING UP. Do not mow
in reverse unless ABSOLUTELY
necessary and then only after turning
around and observing the entire area
behind the mower. Go slowly. Most
"running over victim" accidents occur in
reverse.
5.
BEGINNING OPERATORS SHOULD
LEARN HOW TO STEER the Zero
Turning Radius Mower before
attempting to mow. Start with slow
engine speed and drive without the
blades engaged in an open area until
comfortable with the machine.
"6.
KNOW HOW TO STOP QUICKLY.
Know the location and operation of
every control, especially how to brake
and how to disengage the mower
blades.
P-11408 (2/99)
7.
DO NOT MOVE STEERING CONTROL
LEVERS from forward position to
reverse position rapidly. The speed
and/or direction of travel is affected
instantly by movement of the Steering
Control Levers.
8.
DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO
OPERATE MOWER. Do not allow
others who have not had instruction to
operate mower.
9.
ALWAYS TURN ENGINE OFF AND
10.
several minutes after running. Always
make sure the gas cap is in place.
REMOVE KEY before leaving the mower to
prevent children and inexperienced operators
from starting the engine. Never leave the
mower unattended with engine running.
Always wait for all moving parts and all sounds
to stop before leaving operator's seat.
11.
NEVER CARRY PASSENGERS.
12.
KNOW THE AREA YOU ARE TO
MOW. Watch for hidden danger such as rocks,
roots, sticks, holes, bumps, and drop-offs, etc.
Before mowing, pick up all debris in area to be
mowed. Sharp and hard objects can be
propelled at a high speed and can act like
shrapnel. Walk through tall grass BEFORE
MOWING to make sure there are no hidden
dangers. Mow higher than desired in tall grass
to expose any hidden objects and/or
obstacles, clean the area, and then mow to the
desired height.
NEVER REFUEL A MOWER
INDOORS. Allow the engine time to cool
before refueling. Unseen vapors may be
ignited by a spark. Always clean up spilled
gasoline. Never run the engine indoors in a
garage or any other closed building. Allow
engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.
The engine exhaust and gasoline fumes are
dangerous.
14.
DO NOT SMOKE AROUND THE MOWER
or the gasoline storage container. Gasoline
fumes can easily ignite.
16.
KEEP GASOLINE IN A WELLVENTILATED AREA away from your living
quarters and in tightly-capped safety cans.
Never store mower with gasoline in the tank
inside a building where fumes may reach
open flame or spark.
17.
DISENGAGE BLADES, STOP ENGINE
AND REMOVE IGNITION KEY before any
servicing. Be sure all moving parts and all
sounds have stopped. Let engine cool and
disconnect the spark plugs so the engine
cannot start by accident. A SLIGHT
ROTATION OF THE BLADES COULD
START THE ENGINE.
18.
KEEP ALL NUTS, BOLTS, AND
SCREWS TIGHT to be sure equipment is
in safe working condition, especially blade
mounting bolts.
19.

MOWING RECOMMENDATIONS
1.
Keep mower blades sharp.
2.
Make sure deck and discharge are
clean.
3.
When mowing tall grass, make two
passes, mowing off 1/2 of the desired cut
on the first pass, and then the desired
height the second pass. Check for hidden
dangers first.
4.
Go slowly for trimming.
5.
Always cut grass with the engine at full
throttle speed. This "ENGINE" speed
allows the cutting blades to operate at
optimum cutting speed. Control
"GROUND" speed with the Steering
Control Levers.
6.
Vary ground speed to suit conditions
(i.e. go slower in tall thick grass, on hills,
wet conditions, etc.).
Replace decals when illegible. Write factory for free replacement.

MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
1.
ENGINE:
3.
Correct tire pressure is essential for
efficient operation of the mower. Check tire
pressure as requested in the maintenance
schedule. Inflate tires to the pressures
listed below:
For complete maintenance and operating
information for your engine, please refer to
your engine operating and maintenance
instructions furnished by the engine
manufacturer and included in your Dixon
Zero Turning Radius Mower information
packet.
NOTE: Air intake screen must be kept
clean. If plugged, engine may be seriously
damaged by over heating.
2.
TIRES:
Lug nuts should be checked regularly for
tightness.
BATTERY:
~*.
MOWER BLADES:
Check sharpness of mower blades after
every 10 hours of operation. To sharpen
blades proceed as follows:
Keep the electrolyte level above the plates
in each cell by adding distilled water as it
becomes necessary. Add water just before
operating the mower to mix the water with
the solution. Be careful not to overfill the
battery - the electrolyte solution is corrosive
and can cause damage to surrounding
metal parts if it should spill. When taking
the battery out of the mower for servicing,
make sure to connect the cables to the
battery exactly as they were prior to
removal. Always disconnect the ground (-)
wire first and always reconnect the ground
(-) wire last.
A. Remove bolt, lockwasher, and cup
washer mounting blade on shaft. Remove
blade.
B. Blades should be discarded when worn
excessively.
Keep the battery clean. Remove the
corrosion around the battery terminals by
applying a solution of one part baking soda
to four parts water. Coat all exposed
terminal surfaces with a light layer of
grease or petroleum jelly to prevent
corrosion.
NOTE:
At temperatures below 32 degrees F
(0 degrees C) the full charge state
must be maintained to prevent cell
electrolyte from freezing and causing
permanent battery damage.
C. Sharpen blades with a hand file,
electric grinder or blade sharpener. Wear
gloves and eye protection when
sharpening. Grind blade at original 25
degree bevel.
7
P-11408 (2/99)
D. Check balance of blade by positioning
the blade on a nail or blade balance
pedestal. Grind the blade on the end that
is heavier until both sides balance.
Check the oil level in hydrostatic
transmission oil reservoir after every 25
hours of usage. Clean the oil reservoir
cap and the area around it prior to
removal. Check the oil level on the
dipstick. The proper oil level should
register between the marked hole on the
dipstick and the end of the dipstick.
Replenish as needed with 20W-50 Motor
Oil. DO NOT OVER FILL. When
checking the oil level, be very careful to
keep the reservoir clean
E. Install blade, cup washer, lockwasher,
and bolt. Make sure to tighten bolt to 60
ft.lbs.
5.
V-BELTS:
There are 3 V-belts on your Dixon Zero
Turning Radius Mower. They should be
checked every 50 hours. Replace any
belts found to be in poor condition. All
belts are equipped with spring loaded belt
tighteners and do not require tightening
adjustments.
6.
Change the oil in the reservoir and
hydrostatic transmission filter after the
first 100 hours of use, then every 500
hours after that. Remove the filter and be
sure all oil has drained from the reservoir.
Replace with new filter (P/N 7252) and
20W-50 Motor Oil.
LUBRICATION:
A. Engine: Follow engine
manufacturer's recommendation.
B. Deck Spindles: Lubricate with 3
"shots" only, every 100 hours.
C. Hydrostatic Transmission & Filter:
Follow instructions listed below.
7. PARKING BRAKE ADJUSTMENT:
8
A. With the brake handle in the
"RELEASE" position and the actuating
lever against the stop, remove the cotter
pin from the castle nut. Insert a 0.010
feeler gauge between the brake disc and
the brake puck. Tighten the castle nut
with the feeler gauge inserted until the
gauge fits snugly«between the disc and
puck. The gap should not be so tight that
the feeler gauge cannot be reinserted
after removal. Back the castle nut to the
closest pin hole and reinsert the cotter pin.
