• Be sure the area is clear of other
2
lutely necessary. Always look down
and behind before and while backing.
• Be aware of the mower discharge direction and do not point it at anyone.
Do not operate the mower without either the entire grass catcher or the
guard in place.
• Slow down before turning.
• Never leave a running machine unattended. Always turn off blades, set
parking brake, stop engine, and remove keys before dismounting.
• Turn off blades when not mowing.
• Stop engine before removing grass
catcher or unclogging chute.
• Mow only in daylight or good artificial
light.
• Do not operate the machine while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
• Watch for traffic when operating near
or crossing roadways.
• Use extra care when loading or unloading the machine into a trailer or
truck.
• Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or
embankments.
The mower could suddenly turn over if a wheel is over the
edge of a cliff or ditch, or if an edge
caves in.
• Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced
traction could cause sliding.
• Do not try to stabilize the machine by
putting your foot on the ground.
• Do not use grass catcher on steep
slopes.
CHILDREN
• Data indicates that operators, age 60
years and above, are involved in a
large percentage of riding mowerrelated injuries. These operators
should evaluate their ability to operate
the riding mower safely enough to
protect themselves and others from
serious injury.
SLOPE OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to lossof-control and tipover accidents, which
can result in severe injury or death. All
slopes require extra caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on it, do not mow it.
DO:
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator
is not alert to the presence of children.
Children are often attracted to the machine and the mowing activity. Never assume that children will remain where you
last saw them.
• Keep children out of the mowing area
and under the watchful care of another
responsible
adult.
• Be alert and turn machine
dren enter the area.
• Before and when backing, look behind
and down for small children.
• Never carry children. They may fair off
and be seriously injured or interfere
with safe machine operation.
• Never allow children to operate the
machine.
• Mow up and down slopes, not across.
• Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
• Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven terrain could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
• Use slow speed. Choose a low gear
so that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
• Follow the manufacturer's
recommendations for wheel weights or counterweights to improve stability.
• Use extra care with grass catchers or
other attachments.
These can change
the stability of the machine.
• Keep all movement on the slopes slow
and gradual. Do not make sudden
changes in speed or direction.
• Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If
tires lose traction, disengage the
blades and proceed slowly straight
down the slope.
DO NOT:
• Do notturn on slopes unless necessary, and then, turn slowly and gradually downhill, if possible.

BEFORE STARTING THE ENIGNE
CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
• The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
• Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
• Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe
clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw
cap tight, wait for a few seconds,
remove and read oil level. If neces-
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.
• Sit on seat in operating position,
depress clutch/brake pedal and set
parking brake.
• Place gear shift lever in neutral (N)
position.
• Move attachment clutch to "DISENGAGED" position.
• Move throttle control to choke position.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm
and cold starting procedures below.
• 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
sary, add oil until "FULL" mark on
dipstick is reached. Do not overfill.
• For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See =OIL
VISCOSITY
CHART" in the Maintenance section of this manual).
• To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
ADDGASOLINE
• 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.

• 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.
IMPORTANT:
When operating in
temperatures below 32°F(0°C),
use
fresh, clean winter grade gasoline to
help insure good cold weather starting.
A(_ WARNING:
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. Use fresh fuel
next season. See Storage Instructions
for additional information.

MOWING
TIPS
• Tire chains cannot be used when the
mower housing is attached to tractor.
• Mower should be properly leveled for
best mowing performance.
See "TO
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 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 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 operatingattachments,
select a
ground speed that will suit the terrain
and give best performance of the
attachment being used.

BATrERY
Your tractor has a battery charging
system which is sufficient for normal use.
However, periodic charging of the battery
with an automotive
charger will extend
its life.
• Keep battery and terminals clean.
• Keep battery bolts tight.
• Keep small vent holes open.
• Recharge at 6-10 amperes for 1 hour,
NOTE: The original equipment battery on
your tractor is maintenance free. Do not
attempt to open or remove caps or
covers, Adding or checking level of
electrolyte is not necessary.
TO CLEAN BATTERY
AND TERMINALS
Corrosion and dirt on the battery and
terminals can cause the battery to "leak"
power.
• Open battery box door.
• Disconnect BLACK battery cable first
then RED battery cable and remove
battery from tractor.
• Rinse the battery with plain water and
dry.
• Clean terminals and battery cable
ends with wire brush until bright.

wear.
TRANSAXLE COOLING
Keep transaxle free from build-up of dirt
and chaff which can restrict cooling.
NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils
(5W30, 10W30 etc.) improve starting in
cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils
will result in increased oil consumption
when used above 32°F. Check your
engine oil level more frequently to avoid
possible engine damage from running
low on oil.
Change the oil after every 25 hours of
operation or at least once a year if the
tractor is not used for 25 hours in one
year.
Check the crankcase
oil level before
starting the engine and after each eight
(8) hours of operation. Tighten oil fill cap/
dipstick securely each time you check
the oil level.
TO CHANGE
ENGINE
OIL

CARBURETOR
NOTE: The carburetor on this engine is
low emission. It is equipped with an idle
fuel adjusting needle with a limiter cap,
which allows some adjustment within the
limits allowed by the cap. Do not attempt
to remove the limiter cap. The limiter cap
cannot be removed without breaking the
adjusting needle.
The carburetor has been preset 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 idle mixture valve in
(clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel
to the engine giving a leaner fuel/air
mixture. Tuming the idle mixture valve
out (countemlockwise)
increases the
supply of fuel to the engine giving a
richer fuel/air mixture.
IMPORTANT:
Damage to the needle
valve and the seat in carburetor may
result if screw is turned in too tight.
PRELIMINARY
SETTING
-
• Air cleaner assembly must be assembled to the carburetor when
making carburetor adjustments.
• Be sure the throttle control cable is
adjusted propedy
FINAL SETTING
(see above).
-
• Start engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make final adjustments with
engine running and shift/motion
control lever in neutral (N) position.
25
TEST-
• Move throttle control lever from slow to
fast position. If engine hesitates or
dies, turn idle mixture valve out
(counterclockwise)
118 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 Authorized service center/department,
which
has proper equipment and experience to
make any necessary adjustments.

gasoline in the tank inside a
building where fumes may reach an
open flame or spark. Allow the engine to
cool before stonng in any enclosure.
TRACTOR
Remove
mower from tractor for winter
storable. 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.
• Clean entire tractor (See =CLEANING"
in the Maintenance section of this
manual).
• Inspect and replace belts, if necessary
(See belt replacement instructions in
the Service and Adjustments section of
this manual).
• Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual.
• Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws
are securely fastened, inspect moving
parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
• Touch up all rusted or chipped paint
surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
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 "1O CLEAN BA'I-I'ERY
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.
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 m storage.
• Drain the fuel tank.
• 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 fue_ 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)
• Remove spark plug(s).
• Pour one ounce of oil through spark
plug hole(s) into cylinder(s).
• Tum ignition key to =START" position
for a few seconds to distribute oil.
• Replace with new spark ptug(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
moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe which allows condensation to form and will cause your
tractor to rust.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover tractor whi_e
