Tire Care
Maintain tire pressure in front at 14 PSI and rear tires

3. Blade Sharpening
For best results mower blades must be kept eharp_
The blades can be sharpened with a few strokes of
a flle or on a grinding wheel,. We suggest they be
sharpened after every 25 hours of mowfng_ Do not
attempt to sharpen while on mower.
a. When grinding, care should be taken to maintain
blade balance and the blade should be checked
for'proper balance before reinstallstion on mower.
Unbalanced or bent blade will cause excessive
vibration when running, end eventual damage to
mower or engine. Replace bent or damaged
blades,
