IMPORTANT: Leaving the ignition switch
in any position other than "OFF" will
cause the battery to be discharged,
(dead).
NOTE: Under certain conditions when
tractor is standing idle with the engine
running, hot engine exhaust gases may
cause "browning"of grass. To eliminate
this possibility, always stop engine when
stopping tractor on grass areas.
_CAUTION:
Always stop tractor
completely, as described above, before
leaving the operator's position; to empty
grass catcher, etc.
TO USE THROTTLE CONTROL
Always operate engine at full throttle.
• Operating engine at less than full
throttle reduces the battery charging
rate.
• Full throttle offers the best bagging and
mower performance.
TO MOVE FORWARD AND BACKWARD
The direction and speed of movement is
controtled by the gearshift lever.
1. Start tractor with clutch/brake pedal
depressed and gearshift lever in
neutral (N) position.
2. Move gearshift lever to desired
position.
3. Slowly release clutch/brake pedal to
start movement.
IMPORTANT: Bring tractor to a complete
stop before shifting or changing gears.
Failure to do so will shorten the useful life
of your transaxle.

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
specificationsof 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. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe
clean, reinsert the dipstickand screw
cap tight, wait for a few seconds,
remove and read oil level. If necessary, add oil until "FULL" mark on
dipstickis reached. Do not overfill.
• For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting(See "OiL
VISCOSITY CHAR'r" in the Maintenanca section of this manual).
• To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
Oil Fill Cap/
Dipstick
14
ADD GASOLINE
• Fill fuel tank. 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.
IMPORTANT: When operating in
temperatures below 32°F(0°C), use fresh,
clean winter grade gasoline to help
insure good cold weather starting.
NOTE: Beforestarting,read the warm and
coldstartingproceduresbelow,
5. 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, move throttle control
to fast position,wait a few minutes
and try again. If engine still does not
start, move the throttle control back to
the choke position and retry.
/kWARNING: Experience 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. 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. Usa fresh fuel
next season, See Storage Instructionsfor
additional information. Never use engine
or carburetor c_eaner products in the fuel
tank or permanent damage may occur.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50° F and
above)
6. When engine starts, move the throttle
control to the fast position.
• 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
using the choke as described above,
A_kCAUTION: Fill to bottom of gas tank
filler neck. Do not overfill. Wipe off any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or
use gasoline near an open flame.
TO START ENGINE
When sta_ng the enginefor the firsttime or if
the enginehas runout offuel, itwill take extra
crankingitme to move fuel fromthe tankto
the engine.
1. Sit on seat in operating position,
depress elutclVbreke pedal and set
parking brake.
2. Place gear shift lever in neutral (N)
position.
3. Move attachment clutch to =DISENGAGED" position.
4. Move throttle control to choke position.
COLD WEATHER STARTING( 50° F and
below)
6. When engine starts, allow engine to
run with the throttle control in the
choke position until the engine runs
roughly, then move throttle control to
fast position. This may require an
engine warm-up period from several
seconds to several minutes, depending on the temperature.
• The attachments can also be used
during the engine warm-up period.
NOTE: if at a highalt_de (above3000 feet)
or in coldtemperatures(below 32 F) the
carburetor fuel mixturemay need to be
adjustedfor best engine performance.See
"TO ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the Service
andAdj_ents
sectionof this manual.

MOWlNGTIPS
• Mower should be propedy leveled for
best mowing performance. See "TO
LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in the
Se,_,'iceand 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 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.
• If gress is extremely tali, 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
attachment being used.
MULCHING MOWlNGTIPS
IMPORTANT: For best performance,
keep mower housing free of built-up
grass and trash. Clean after each use.
• The special mulching blade will recut
the grass clippings many times and
reduce them in size so that as they fall
onto the lawn they will disperse into the
grass and not be noticed. Also, the
mulched grass will biodegrade quickly
to provide nutrientsfor the lawn.
Always mulch with your highest engine
(blade) speed as this will provide the
best recutting action of the blades.
• Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet.
Wet grass tends to form clumps and
interferes with the mulching action.
The best time to mow your lawn is the
early afternoon. At thistime the grass
has dried and the newly cut area will
not be exposed to the direct sun.
• For best results, adjust the mower
cutting height so that the mower cuts off
only the top one-third of the grass
blades. For extremely heavy mulching,
reduce your width of cut on each pass
and mow slowly.
• Certain types of grass and grass
conditions may require that an area be
mulched a second time to completely
hide the clippings. When doing a
second cat, mow across or perpendicular to the first cut path.
• Change your cutting pattern from week
to week. Mow north to south one week
then change to east to west the next
week. This will help prevent matting
and graining of the lawn.

highest gear, then brake must be adjusted. (See "TO ADJUST BRAKE" in the
Service and Adjustments section of this
manual).
TIRES
• Maintain proper air pressure in all tires
(See "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS"
section of this manual),
• Keep tires free of gasoline, oil, or insect
control chemicals which can harm
rubber.
• Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, sharp
objects and other hazards that may
cause tire damage.
NOTE: To seal tire punctures and prevent
fiat tires due to slow leaks, tire sealant
may be purchased from your local parts
dealer. Tire sealant also prevents tire dry
rot and corrosion.
OPERATOR PRESENCE SYSTEM
Be sure operator presence and interlock
systems are working properly. If your
tractor does not function as described,
repair the problem immediately,
• The engine should not start unless the
clutch/brake pedal is fully depressed
and attachement clutch control is in the
disengaged position.
• When the engine is running, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat without first setting the parking
brake should shut off the engine.
• When the engine is running and the
attachment clutch is engaged, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat should shut off the engine.
• The attachment clutch should never
operate unless the operator is in the
seat.

TO SHARPEN BLADE
NOTE: We do not recommend sharpening blade - but if you do, be sure the
blade is balanced.
Care should be taken to keep the blade
balanced. An unbalanced blade will
cause excessive vibration and eventual
damage to mower and engine.
• The blade can be sharpened with a file
or on a grinding wheel. Do not attempt
to sharpen while on the mower.
• To check blade balance, you will need
a 5/8" diameter steel bolt, pin, or a cone
balancer. (When using a cone balancer, follow the instructions supplied
with balancer.)
NOTE: Do not use a nail for balancing
blade. The lobes of the center hole may
appear to be centered, but are not.
• Slide blade on to an unthreaded
portion of the steel bolt or pin and hold
the bolt or pin parallel with the ground.
If blade is balanced, it should remain in
a horizontal position. If either end of
the blade moves downward, sharpen
the heavy end until the blade is
balanced.

TO ADJUST CARBURETOR
NOTE: The carburetor on this engine is low
emission, it isequippedwith an idle fuel
adjus_ngneedlewith a limitercap, which
allowssome adjustmentwithinthe limits
allowed bythe cap. Do notattemptto remove
the limitercap. The limitercap cannot be
removedwithoutbreakingthe adjusting
needle.
The carburetor has been preset at the factory
and adjustment shouldnot be necessary.
However,mino_adjustment may be required
to compensatefor differencesin fuel,
temperature,altitudeor load. If the carburetor
doas need adjustment,proceed as follows:
In general,teming idlemixture valve in
(do_N_) decreases the supplyof fuelto
the engine givinga leaner fuel/air mixture,
Tumingthe idle mixturevalve out (seunterclockwise)inoreasasthe supplyof fuel to the
enginegivinga richerfuel/air mixture.
IMPORTANT: Damage to the needlevalve
andthe seat in carburetor may resultif screw

PRELIMINARY SETI'ING 1. Air cleaner assemblymust be assembled
to the carburetor when making carburetor
adjusbllents.
2. Be sure the throttle controlcable is
adjustedproperly(see above).

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.
_CAUTION:
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 dean, 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.
BATrERY
• 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 BATTERY 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 on
concrete or damp surfaces.
ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM
IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent
gum deposites from forming in essential
fuel system parts such as carburetor, fuel
hose, or tank during storage. Also,
experiance indicates that alcohol
blended fuels (called gasohol or using
ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture
which reads to separation and formation
of acids during storage. Acidic gas can
damage the fuel system of and 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. Do not drain the gas tank
and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
ENGINEOIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
CYLINDER(S)
1. Remove spark plug(s).
2. Pour one ounce of oil through spark
ptug hoLe(s)into cylinder(s).
3. Turn ignition key to =START" position
for a few seconds to distribute oil.
4. Replace with new spark plug(s).
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
meisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe which allows condensation to form and will cause your
tractor to rust,
IMPORTANT: Never cover tractor while
engine and exhaust areas are still warm.
